Amy loved playing with the dandelion seeds. Just so beautiful playing with natures gifts. She’s notally unaware of me, the camera, just caught up in her moment. Eyelashes. . .wow loved photographing my gorgeous little niece, my little treasure. Missed some of the beginning of her growing up. I’m a very lucky aunty Sarah now.

Evan – South Shields childrens photographer

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Evan was a lovely little boy, such a challenge photographically but I did love the energy he had, that’s just him, his personality. He was so FAST, literally like lightening. And I kept up, phew! It was so worth it when I saw the results and his mam LOVED the finished photos.

Evan’s “REAL smile” and he just loves his hats. . .he’s got SO many and this one suits him perfectly.

His eyes are amazing here.

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 “

Olly – South Shields Childrens Photographer

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Olly is an absolutely stunning little boy, knew what he liked, so I just went with his mood. He played and did his own thing. Kids do not sit for long, FACT, and I don’t expect them to. I just let them be themselves and capture just that, normally lying on my tummy giggling at what they do naturally. Nodding to myself when I feel I’ve got “the shot.”

Olly playing enjoying himself. . .his REAL smile.

The little man came really close for me to capture his delicate features, you can see his relaxed, natural expression.

Memories last a lifetime, so importrant for Sarah and Paul to have beautiful, quality portraits of their little boy to enlarge for their living room wall. . .these images stretch beautifully. And I almost forgot. . . the most importrant image of all . . .


. . .the FAMILY PORTRAIT, I remember making silly faces, not caring what I looked like. . .NATURAL expressions exploded from their faces. Now these memories are frozen in time forever. . .Olly will change, TOO quickly, but now they will ALWAYS have these beautiful memories to look back on.

Customer Feedback-Sanders Family

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

So what do customers think of Sarah Kirk Photography?  REAL reviews from real people on Facebook.


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” !!!!!




Scared to have his photo taken?…Not today!

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

When Leighanne and I spoke on the phone how she’d love some portraits of her children Talia, Will and Evie she explained that little Will wouldn’t sit or smile for the camera.  That did not surprise me and I explained how that is totally normal and that we’d have fun and capture some great portraits.

At our consultation she explained she’d taken little Will to a local portrait studio in the past and recently tried to have his school photo taken both without success.  I met Will that day and what a lovely little boy.  We talked about Fireman Sam, Peppa Pig and how we were going to have such fun when I came back to see him.

I always allow plenty of time at the portrait session at my clients homes so they do not feel rushed and can make the most of the quality service.  Talia, and Evie did fantastic and little Will took to it like a duck to water in record time!

Will enjoying himself

Look at those eyes

Talia, love the tones in her hair
