Baby Photography

Baby Photography Nottingham

This was the most perfect session. Little Miss ‘A’ was amazing such a content little madam.

I just loved working with her as she snoozed peacefully whilst I posed her. Reading the cues when was the best time in her sleep cycle to position her and taking her lead.

We even managed to capture her cute little smiles as she went into ‘REM’ sleep ‘Perfect’.

If you would like to book a session please do get in touch whilst you are still pregnant, preferably after you 16th week scan to avoid disappointment. Your due date will be added to our diary so your session is confirmed and as soon as you have had baby you contact me and we arrange for you to come into the studio before baby is 10 days old. This ‘magical’ 10 days is so important and this is the best time to get this type of posing as they will become less tolerant to it after this time and I cannot guarantee this type of posing.

The delegates will get  chance to shoot a huge range of photographs that may be blogged with a description about the session, Sarah at all times demonstrates safe baby posing, how to mold and handle baby, compositional tricks to create those WOW poses her clients have grown to love, and soothing tips and tricks that have earned her the name ‘Baby Whisperer’ among them.

Sarah shoots studio lighting so you will need to bring a trigger where possible please let her know upon booking that this is not possible.

Sarah will take you through doing composites as she uses these at ALL times for safety. A composite shot is one that consists of 2 or more images merged together in Photoshop so baby is being held at all times for safety.

Local Photographer Sarah Wilkes Achieves National Acclaim!


I am so excited to announce this press release i just received from The Guild of Professional Photographers!


Local Photographer Sarah Wilkes achieves national acclaim!

Sarah Wilkes, a photographer based in Lambley Nottingham has reached the Final of the fiercely contested Guild of Photographers Image of the Year Competition.

The Guild is a highly respected UK based association for photographers which has members from overseas as well. Each year it runs an on-line monthly photographic competition with awards being given each month to the very best of the entries.

During the course of 2015, the competition attracted nearly 10,000 entries in 4 categories, and this week the Guild’s Judges have selected just 10 images in the various genres from the very best of the monthly entries, to go forward to the annual Final. Name ‘s image is one of those images!

Guild Director Lesley Thirsk said “One of the Guild’s aims is to drive standards and creativity amongst photographers. Our monthly competition certainly does that, for the standard of the entries we see each month is quite staggering. To have an image recognised by the Guild in the monthly competition is difficult enough, so to have an image selected as being one of the best 10 in a category for the end of year Final is a quite remarkable achievement, and shows just how talented a photographer Sarah is”

Sarah said “ its such an honour – photography is such a passion and i am delighted that my new venture other than my newborn work has been recognised which is Child Fine Art. I have put a lot of effort into developing my skills. One way I do that is to enter the Guild’s competition. It drives forward photography standards month after month so it helps me push myself. The images I see getting awards each month are inspirational, so knowing just how high those standards are, to have one of my images selected as one of only 10 to go through to the Final from the whole year’s entries is really really exciting. I couldn’t believe it when I found out.”

Sarah’s image along with the others will now be printed ready for the Competition Final later in January, and the overall winner will be announced at a lavish Awards night in a magnificent Jacobean mansion in Cheshire on 6th February.
