About Me

Hello ! I'm Sarah, family and lifestyle photographer based in the beautiful Kent countryside close to Canterbury.  

I've worked in the image industry for twenty years, creating and sourcing the most engaging images for books, magazines & advertising. 

I'm now living my dreamiest dream in family  photography, capturing those special moments - and in between moments, within the magic of childhood and the connections of family. I love creating timeless images that spark emotion and help to preserve treasured memories. Our photographs are our heirlooms and the thread that connects the generations.

My own family has shown me how quickly those baby and childhood years evolve and I'm grateful for the catalogue of photographed moments I have to treasure. The opportunity to preserve those moments for all the special families I meet gives me real joy.

I'm always appreciating pretty light, colour and beauty in the things and people around me, (it makes my day run smoothly) and my husband is well used to an unscheduled layby stop as I jump out to explore potential new shoot locations.

If you're reading down this far, some of my own memories of childhood are of my Dad's darkroom, watching the magical moment of a photographic print developing before my eyes, (no unicorns involved!).

 And no child will forget the fun of being able to walk barefoot through trays of paint and across used backdrop paper :)
