About Sarah Baldock
Hello! I'm Sarah and I am a Memory Maker
From the moment you find out you are pregnant life is filled with new and awesome moments…..the first kick, watching your bump grow, giving birth, watching as your precious newborn baby sleeps in your arms. All these moments are fleeting and are gone in seconds but I have the power to capture many of them for you to treasure for generations to come.
I can guarantee every new parent will spend hours just sitting and watching their precious new bundle as they sleep in their arms – their tiny features perfect in every way. You never want to lose that overwhelming feeling of love that sweeps over you. I should know, I have three young boys myself!
Family Portrait Award
Highly Commended award in April 2020 from the Master Photographers Association monthly competition in the family category. The judge described this portrait as "...a cracking family portrait...with a tonal range that holds it all together.....it’s just gorgeous..."
Joshua, Samuel and Elijah are my three boys and they are my world, along with my husband Rob and our dog Freddie. Our boys are typical boys and love football, cricket, Lego-building and taking Freddie on outdoor family adventures. As you can imagine, everything is done at a thousand miles an hour and at three thousand decibels and I wouldn’t change it for the world!
Qualified Portrait Award
Highly Commended award for March from the Master Photographers Association competition in the portrait category.
The judge described it as "a perfect newborn portrait and the dog just makes it even better".
Newborn Art by SJ Baldock Story
When my youngest son, Elijah, was just a few months old, I realised I had missed capturing those precious first moments in any form of artwork. Yes, I had the quick snaps on my phone but nothing I could treasure and pass down the generations.
This was when Newborn Art by SJ Baldock was born because I know that our most treasured moments are gone so quickly and decided I wanted to be able to capture them for new mums and dads to remember, treasure and share for generations to come.
I hold my Licentiate qualification as well as my Newborn Certification with the Master Photographers Association and I am a Qualified member of the Guild of Newborn and Baby Photographers. I have also trained with some of the top national and international newborn photographers.
My images have received numerous awards both regionally and nationally, as has my customer experience, something I am equally as proud of as my photography.
Highly Commended Award
Highly Commended award for November from the Master Photographers Association competition. The standard was extremely high this month so I was super proud.
The judge described it as "a really gorgeous newborn image". This is 16-day-old Darcie.
You and Newborn Art by SJ Baldock
When you visit our studio, it is not just to take a few photographs. I want you to have a magical experience and to create new memories whilst capturing your most precious family portraits. Memories that you will be able to cherish for decades and even generations to come.
'A wonderful experience'
“Baby Heba arrived at the studio just 6 days old! It was a wonderful experience for our first family trip into the big wide world as a family. From start to finish Sarah looked after Heba and handled her with such care like the little angel that she is. It was a wonderful morning sitting back and watching the magic being created in the hands of Sarah. Thank you for creating wonderful memories of our first born.”
Zaheera and Khurram
“We had a newborn photo shoot with Sarah and a separate family shoot. She was so patient with my 15-day old and created some absolutely beautiful pictures. We then returned with my 10-year old and partner (neither are keen on have their photo taken) Sarah made everyone feel so comfortable and welcome and again some great pictures. Thank you so much for these amazing memories. Will be recommending you to everyone.”
