Buxton Portrait Photographer
Family moments are important, little snippets in time that go by within the blink of an eye. I can capture these beautiful moments for you to cherish forever, by offering studio shoots, set up in the comfort of your own home. No need to pack everything but the kitchen sink and drag it all to a studio with your newborn baby, no pulling the kids away from their toys to go to a strange new place. Enjoy having your own personal studio setup within your own four walls, everything you need on hand, whether that’s your little ones favourite toy, the fridge or even space to just chill out for 5 minutes.
Alternatively, if you’d prefer to have an adventure and go to an epic location, we can choose the perfect place for you and your family. I prefer to shoot in the hour before the sun sets (known as the Golden Hour) for the best light, however, don’t worry if the natural light isn’t available, I use creative studio lighting, so even photos in the rain look AMAZING!
GROUP AND FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY
Whether you’re having a family reunion, celebrating a big birthday or just want some nice photos of your family all together, I can cater for all groups. Indoor sessions can be had with multiple coloured backdrops (limited to 4-6 people per group) or we can head outside into the beautiful countryside to capture you in the most beautiful light.
MATERNITY AND NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY
Expecting a baby can be an exciting time, but one that can fly by in the blink of an eye. If you’d like to capture some gorgeous photos of you whilst you’re pregnant or of your newborn baby, I recommend getting in touch as early as possibly.
Maternity shoots are best done between 7-9 months of the pregnancy so once you know your due date, get in touch and we can arrange a suitable date for your shoot.
Newborn shoots are best done in the first 10-14 days of the baby being born. This is due to the baby still being in the flexible foetal position, allowing them to be posed comfortably, they are also more sleepy during this time. If you’d like to book a newborn session, please get in touch as early as possibly with your due date and I can schedule you in. Don’t worry about being early or over due, as long as I have a date scheduled in for you, we can accommodate your babies arrival.
CAKE SMASH PHOTOGRAPHY
When it’s your birthday, it’s pretty much the law to have an awesome, big cake! If you’d like to take part in a cake smash shoot (which is immense fun!) feel free to get in touch, it doesn’t matter what age you are, cake smash shoots are for everyone!
Children grow up so fast and we’re often guilty of letting it whizz by without stopping to take it all in. I offer many different styles of children’s portrait shots, whether you’re wanting to record them in their first school uniform or just have some lovely photos to look back at.
ENGAGEMENT AND PROPOSAL PHOTOGRAPHY
If you’ve recently gotten engaged and would like some photographs to celebrate the moment, I’d be happy to help. Alternatively, if you’re planning a proposal and would like a photographer there to capture the expressions and emotions, let me know – I promise I can keep a secret 🙂
PEAK DISTRICT PHOTOGRAPHER
I strive to produce high quality images, ensuring the client gets the best experience from start to finish. I don’t put a time limit on shoots, I’d much prefer to go with the flow and make sure the overall outcome of the shoot is to a good standard. I’d rather you have a few stunning images over 100’s of mediocre images, after all my job is to create lasting memories for you.
I am based in Buxton, Derbyshire, situated in the High Peak just out side of the Peak District National Park. I work throughout The Peak District, Buxton, Cheshire, Derbyshire, Manchester, Staffordshire, Snowdonia, Sheffield and many other places within the North West but if you are outside of these areas and you’re interested in a shoot, please don’t hesitate to get in touch here and I will do my best to accommodate you.
Sarah is just the most AMAZING photographer. She is such a lovely person and nothing is ever too much trouble for her. She has done photoshoots for both our girls…newborns, birthdays, Christmas and I’m sure there will be plenty more!

Sarah is brilliant. Not only are her photographs great but she also have a very good understanding of how to arrange, cajole and organise people into position in order to get the great photos she does. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.

Sarah took a our family portraits for my Mums 60th birthday. We were so pleased with the stunning photos that she produced. We had the platinum package which included 20 photos. Felt it was really good value. Definitely plan to have Sarah photograph the kids again in the future.
