As a photographer, I should probably have one of my best images on this page. Instead I have gone with my mobile phone shot, a shot which was taken 'in the moment'.
This is what I specialise in; capturing babies, children, and families, in the moment. That fleeting moment, which may only last a split second, but where most people are too busy to take it all in, or simply forget to take a picture.
My name is Sarah. I'm 35 years old and founded New Mumma Photography after having my own little boy who is now three and a half years old.
I've always had an interest in camera's from a very young age and have collected cameras, from my Grandad's Yashica camera, to the antique Coronet Rapide, to my latest purchase; a new lens for my current camera :)
My lightbulb moment came as a new Mum when I thought it was about time, I used my photography degree!
When my son was born, I found myself desperately wanting some newborn shots. I wanted to remember those very early days when this gorgeous little bundle slept and ate and just lay there looking like an angel. So I decided to drag myself out, when my baby was 9 days old, to a photography studio.
All I could think of was... How tired and worn out I was, and couldnt even be bothered to put makeup on, how I just wanted to stay in my pjs, let alone remembering to take props. At the time I also didn't want my new little bundle to be taken out of the comfort his own home.
Not so long after, New Mumma Photography was born.
I wanted to give new Mums the experience I never had and wished I had have had. An experience that was easy, stress free and didn't involve using much energy or brain power :)
As most of us Mums know, the last thing you want to do when you've had a baby is remember to take props to a studio.
New Mumma Photography happens in your own home, or on location.
I will come to you to take natural photos of your little one in their own environment. The shoot is very relaxed; no studio, no props, and no forced poses. Simply me and my camera in the comfort of your own home.
