A little bit about...
My name is Sarah James and I am a photographer specialising in maternity and baby photography based in Walsoken on the Cambridgeshire/Norfolk border.
I am a mum to three lovely kids aged 9, 12 and 15. I have had various jobs over the years, but none have really been 'my thing'.
My partner brought me my first DSLR camera back in 2014 and from then on it has been everywhere with us. Days out, dog walks, holidays etc. I was in love, photographing anything and everything and although I was enjoying what I was doing, I felt I needed to know more.
In 2015 I enrolled on a full-time course at The College of West Anglia and although I can't say it was easy to balance family life and college life it was worth it, I had the best time!
I gained my Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design (photography) in 2017 with a Distinction grade. This led to me being given the designation of Norfolk County Scholar for achieving at a high standard.
I am experienced in lighting and Photoshop editing which means I can provide you with the high-quality images you desire.
My style is simple, classic and timeless.
Babies are beautiful in their own skin,so I dont use whacky costumes or fussy props.
I love babies little features - fingers, toes, noses, skin creases - they grow so quickly it's easy to forget the little details. With my timeless style of photography you wont have to worry, you'll enjoy looking back at them time and again.
I use textured fabrics underneath baby, wrapped around them or draped over them. These create a gorgeous contrast next to the babies skin.
When photographing baby with parents or couples on their maternity shoot I go for a mixture of candid shots and natural poses that let the emotions speak for themselves.
How it works
Pure baby sessions are available Monday to Friday in the studio area at my home. It provides a relaxed environment, with comfy sofas adjacent to where I will be photographing your little one. Refreshments are available throughout.
Baby plus lifestyle family sessions will take place in your own home on Sundays only.
Lifestyle maternity sessions will take place in your own home or on location with prior arrangement.
For further session information, please click here.
I book only one client per day so please book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
I then spend time going through the images from your session, carefully selecting the best ones for editing. Once they are edited I will add them to a protected album here on this website and send you the password needed to view them. I will also add a sneak preview to the blog and Facebook page unless requested otherwise.
You may then choose to order from a range of products available.
