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.

Hallimond Family

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!

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
