Hello! This is me – (Sally)

Finding the right professional photographer for you and your baby is so important so feel free to have a look around my website.

I specialised as a newborn photographer nearly 10 years ago and my baby whispering skills help to settle babies so they are content and relaxed. Both of my daughters were very windy babies so I had lots of practice!

If you’re tempted to get some lovely photos of your bump I’d love to help you! It’s a super relaxed session don’t worry :)

Let me know if you have any questions and I’m happy to have a chat over the phone if you would like to find out more.

Thanks for visiting my website

I can not recommend Sally enough, she was great with our baby. Sally made us feel completely at ease throughout the whole shoot and our photos are beautiful!

Sally was so friendly and professional from start to finish. From the moment we walked in we felt relaxed and she certainly lived up to her name of the baby whisperer! I’d been looking forward to the morning so much and it didn’t disappoint! The images Sally captured for us are ones that we will cherish forever. Would recommend her to anyone and would definitely use her again! Thank you Sally! :)

Sally is a fantastic newborn photographer. She captured the most amazing pictures of our son, all of which have taken pride and joy around our house. She has an amazing way with newborns, making them so calm and relaxed so she can snap the best memories for you. Couldn't recommend her enough!

I had both my babies photos done by Sally in 2022 and 2023. It was so relaxing. Sally made us feel right at home and calm especially with my 1st. With my 2nd as baby number 1 was a year old I was worried she wouldn’t stay but Sally made her so comfortable. They were friends. Played and chatted with her as we got baby undressed. She sat for the photo with her baby brother as we had so ridiculously cute and gorgeous photos at the end. Also with cost of living going up as well as everything, Sally did not increase her price for 2023 which was so incredibly kind and thoughtful of her. If you want a ridiculously cute baby family photo that you will cherish forever and make your ovaries go “oh my goodness”, a relaxing, calm and safe atmosphere (she is so gentle to baby but then again she is an expert) with a kind and understanding photographer book Sally. ❤️

When I booked the session I thought that “baby whisperer” was just a funny nickname, but after experiencing the shoot I have to believe it’s a second job title! Watching someone so skilled and experienced putting my baby into adorable positions in a calm and warm environment was one of my favourite newborn activities. The photos she got were beautiful too, and delivered to us in the exact time frame she’d said. I couldn’t recommend her more!

We had a newborn photoshoot with Sally and she was amazing at what she does. Our baby was relaxed and happy throughout the whole shoot and the room was warm and cosy. Not only have we now got the most incredible photos to show friends and family, we had a wonderful experience both at the shoot and when viewing our photos 3 weeks later. We will definitely be back in the future 😊

We’ve used Sally three times for our baby photos and they do not disappoint! They are always absolutely beautiful. Sally is great with the babies and can calm them very quickly and creates a very calming atmosphere. Highly recommend!

We’ve used sally for all our children’s newborn photos (3 of them) and they have become the centre piece of our hallway. We couldn’t recommend her enough from the patience and professionalism at the shoot to the touchups and presentation of the final photos everything is perfect. These photos will last a lifetime.

How a newborn photoshoot works

My years of experience together with my ‘baby whispering’ skills mean during your shoot you will be able to relax and enjoy the session. Babies are very settled and comfortable during the newborn as we make sure all their needs are met and never rush them.

On receipt of a booking deposit we make a note of your due date. Then once your little one has arrived we schedule in a convenient morning for your baby’s photo session.

Newborn portrait sessions last for around 2 hours to allow for feeding, changing and settling.

Once you arrive at my photography studio in Cuckfield you can just relax and enjoy gazing at your beautiful baby as I create your photos for you. I have lots of beautiful swaddles, blankets, backdrops and props for use during your session. Click here for FAQs

The west sussex baby photography studio studio is based in Cuckfield, near Burgess Hill and is close to the surrounding areas of Mid Sussex including Haywards Heath, Cuckfield, Lindfield, Crawley, Horsham, Worthing, Hove, & Brighton.

Newborn Photoshoot

During the newborn photo session you can choose from a variety of props such as the oatmeal tub, wooden bowl and of course the gorgeous floral newborn nest. Fresh flowers are used for each newborn nest and you can advise what colours you like for a really bespoke ‘wow’ image.

These are baby photos with a difference! If you would like to view the Newborn Gallery click here

The family shot

It’s only natural that you would want a family shot within all newborn photo sessions, including siblings. Beautifully posed images of you with your baby in your arms – these are the photos that will be sent around to all the family!

Siblings and newborns

It’s great to celebrate your child’s new role as big brother or big sister with the sibling shot. With safety in mind they never hold the baby but rather either lay next to each other or I do a clever edit with two photos in post production. These are always the sweetest shots and in everyone’s top 10 final selection!

How much should I pay for Baby Pictures?

Photographers prices for photoshoots will vary based on their level of experience, skill and technical knowledge.

Choosing a photographer that specialises in newborns and babies means they have specific skills and experience in working safely.

Creative Baby Photos – Echo Newborn Floral Nest

Natural baby photos look even more amazing with flowers and my floral newborn nests are included with every full newborn session.

Whether you are due in Autumn, Winter, Spring or Summer, you will always associate that season with welcoming your brand new baby into the world. If you are interested in creative baby photos you will find my floral newborn nests perfect for your needs.

This signature Echo style includes very special handmade willow or birch ‘nests’, fresh foliage & flowers and beautiful colour palettes that compliment the season.

Your baby will snuggle into his or her ‘nest’ and perhaps take a snooze whilst I create some stunningly unique art pieces for you to display in your home. You also receive a posy of flowers used in the shoot and some clients have pressed them as a momento of the experience.

“Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the photos, they truly are amazing and I’m totally over the moon with them! The whole experience from start to finish has been wonderful and it honestly felt like having a friend round when you did the sessions, you made us feel so comfortable. The finishing touches like wrapping the photos so beautifully added that extra little touch too, you clearly care lots about your work and that shows and makes it very special.” Mrs Sinclair
