Newborn Art by SJ Baldock
About Sarah Baldock
Hello! I'm Sarah Baldock
I am a mum of three young boys with a passion for photography.
My passion for photography stemmed from my Dad, who used to develop all his own films. When I was 10 years old, my Mum and Dad bought me my first Agfa camera and I’ve loved photography ever since.
Having obtained a Diploma in Professional Photography from the Photography Institute, I then completed a course on newborn photography, which included extensive safety training.
I have been awarded my licentiate and Newborn Certification by the Master Photographers Association (MPA). I have also been awarded Merits at the Regional and National Annual Master Photographers Association awards for my newborn photography.
I feel privileged to have the opportunity to step into people’s lives for a moment and capture their most precious occasions.
I really couldn’t ask for a better job….how very lucky am I?!
What Parents Say
'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! She truly is talented and I wouldn’t go to anyone else! Would highly recommend SJ Baldock. Thank you for creating wonderful memories of our first born."

'We felt completely at ease'
"On Monday 26th March, we took our 10 day old twins for their newborn shoot. From start to finish, Sarah was professional, accommodating & genuinely warm & welcoming. We felt completely at ease and Sarah was wonderful at handling our newborns.
Sarah's priority was ensuring that the babies were as comfortable as possible throughout our visit & that is evident in the magnificent images that were captured. I've never met anyone who is more perfect for their job! Thank you Sarah for giving us the most precious memories to treasure forever."

Sarah captured the most precious and special moments for us, from the bump to having our newborn pictures of our beautiful baby boy! Pictures we will cherish and so will our family!
Sarah made us feel so welcome and at home and nothing was too much trouble (even our crazy Dalmatian!) it really has meant the world they are everything and more!

'A truly unforgettable experience'
"We took 5 day old Alexander along to the studio with his two big brothers for a photo shoot, and it did not disappoint.
Not only did Sarah perfectly capture some beautiful images; her attention to detail, little touches, and wonderful personality, made this into a truly unforgettable experience!
Thank you so much!"
Helen and Rob
"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 to everyone!"
Kate and Rich

Sarah took such care with our little girl during the shoot, really taking her time and making it an enjoyable experience for us all. Can’t wait to get the pictures up in the house!"

"We came to Sarah with a 9 day old for a newborn shoot and cannot fault the experience whatsoever. Sarah was very attentive both with me and my husband but also with Georgia and it shows in the photos she took. We would definitely recommend the experience to family and friends and will use Sarah again in the future."
