Harry and Lucy – South Shields childrens photographer

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Brother and sister, such a special relationship. Lucy and Harry’s mam, Jillian, wanted some beautiful portraits of her children to give to family as gifts and I was happy to offer my photography services. After getting to know the kids, I got Harry really FIRED UP and ready to have fun, Lucy was a natural so didn’t need as much encouragement. . .

So relaxed, Harry really enjoyed the session. His mam couldn’t believe I captured his “REAL smile”

How handsome is little Harry here? Priceless.

Jillian was over the moon with her photographic experience. Here is her review –

-Jillian Wales-
“I cannot praise Sarah highly enough! Having the session in the comfort of your own home really puts the kids at ease…my youngest usually does the really unnatural ‘smile’ when getting his picture taken, but Sarah had him laughing and giggling within minutes and the results speak for themselves. The after shoot consultation was also excellent and at no point did i feel hurried to make a fact, i changed my mind and requested a second consultation and Sarah was more than happy to oblige. My only regret is that i didn’t get her to capture them sooner. A great experience resulting in wonderful pictures to treasure. Thank you “

Tommy – South Shields baby photographer

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Tommy was an absolute little star! He LOVED every moment of his portrait session, we had SUCH FUN. He was singing, clapping his hands. . .bless him. He did his thing. . .adorable.

LOVE this shot of him, his eyes are stunning.

Cheeky monkey top, so CUTE, one for the album.

Check out what his mam thought of the whole experience – AMAZING FEEDBACK from photo session. A VERY HAPPY MAMMY. By Emily Kot-“We had a photo shoot done by Sarah for my Son Tommy who was 11 months old at the time, and we are absolutely over the moon!

Sarah came to our home to take the photos and was so friendly yet professional. She spent some time getting to know Tommy before hand which I thought was absolutely fantastic.

Tommy seemed to take a shine to Sarah straight away; and I believe that this, along with Sarah’s experience, was the reason we got the beautiful photos from the session.

Unlike other photographers, Sarah made us feel relaxed and the whole session flowed smoothly – Nothing was rushed or forced which I loved!

Tommy was allowed to just be himself on the backdrop, (Singing, clapping, dancing) and Sarah captured these moments beautifully.

Thank you Sarah for the fantastic service you gave us, we (the whole family) are absolutely over the moon and have been recommending you to everybody.

A super proud, super happy Mammy!! xx”

Real reviews from Facebook!

Abbie Creel Said:  (Five Star Rating)  ”

I was booked in for a consultation with Sarah so that she could find out exactly what I was looking for in my porfolio. This service had never been offered to me before – other photographers expected me to turn up on the day and do the photo shoot – so this was a breath of fresh air.The photo shoot was done in the comfort of my own home (believe it or not – in the living room). I was a bit nervous to start with but Sarah put me at ease and I had a lot of fun changing into different outfits and even found myself twirling around. I even chose the ‘twirling’ picture as one of my images!One image I did ask for in my consultation was a discreet topless photograph. Sarah was very professional as I got ready and directed me into different positions. I was unsure if I would choose it as an image but when I saw the final image during my viewing, it was the first image I purchased.As an actress and performer, images are important. I originally paid for 5 images along with the poto shoot but I ended up buying 10 images – the standard was that high. I even had to call my friend over to help me narrow down the possible images.I look forward to working with Sarah again in the very near future. I am very pleased and happy with the end results.

Sarah, thank you.

Which Editing style do you prefer?  Abbie Chose the bottom portrait editing style as she wanted a natural “look.”

Cath Gollan Was Boukfil (Grandparent and Mother) Said:

(Five Star Rating)  ” Sarah took some photos of my grandchildren Evie and Poppy and daughter and son-in law at their home.I can honestly say ive never seen such beautiful photos, some of the shots were simply amazing. I treasure them very much, her work needs to be seen to be believed”.

Samia Sanders (Mother and Daughter of Cath) Said:

(Five Star Rating)  “Sarah came to my house to do some family pictures and we were overwhelmed with how fantastic they were.
I have two girls Poppy and Evie who were 4 and 2 at the time of the shoot and keeping them focused was no mean feat . Sarah showed tremondous patience and stayed for about 3 hours – through tantrums, a quick costume change for the girls and an embarrassed mum and dad at having our piccies done.
I wanted the pictures fairly quickly so I could use some for Mothers Day and Sarah worked really hard at getting the final Photo’s in time for this.
The pictures were Beautiful and really captured the spirit of the girls – so much so that we ended up buying a lot more pictures than we had originally planned because they were all too good to eliminate any 🙂 .
One of the images was so great I had it blown up onto a huge Canvas for my living room.
I will definately be using Sarah again in the near future and would recommend her to anybody” !!!!!

Recently had the pleasure of photographing a genuinely lovely family.  They were an absolute joy to photograph, organised and cooperative.  I always give tips at the consultation on how to get the best out of the portrait session, especially when small children are involved to make sure we get the best from them on the day-I could not have asked for more from Sarah and Brian.  After seeing this dedication I knew  how much the experience and more importantly the resulting portraits meant to them.

The whole family

Charlotte-love the texture and tones in her hair.

Daniel-loving his beautiful little pout.

Charlotte and Daniel-love their expressions.

Charlotte again-a delicate strand of hair and her stunning eyes!

Sarah said: ” ” (FIVE STAR RATING)I wanted to have some photos taken of my children and after looking at some of Sarahs work, I knew immediately I was going to book a session with her. Her service is fantastic, from the consultation through to the shoot and then the viewing and even receiving the prints by hand!
She really listened and understood exactly what I wanted… from her. Being a mother of a 2 year old and a 7 month old, I had my worries how my children would be on the day and whether they would keep still long enough to have some good photos taken. I needn’t have worried as Sarah was brilliant with them, she really knew how to entertain the little ones and made them laugh, you would think she had children of her own! And we didn’t just get good photos of them – we got AMAZING photos of them!
Sarah was at our home a few hours and I never once felt hurried or pressured, as she was very patient and reassured us that there was no rush.
And on top of all this, the shoot was done in the comfort of our home which also helped the kids be more relaxed.
Overall a fantastic experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to book with Sarah again in the future and I would recommend her to anyone!
Excellent value for money!

One thing I relate to as a woman is needing portraits of myself looking fabulous and also of myself and my man together.  Katie and Paul wanted just that, to celebrate their marriage.
