About Sarah Baldock
Newborn Photographer

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!

My Story

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!

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 have 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.

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."

Sarah was just brill with my new born being so gentle and caring, really just going with her and nothing was too much trouble...as for my little boy (7yr old) Sarah impressed him that much he now wants to be a photographer.

'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."

"I don’t know where to begin...

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!

Thank you."

"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!"

'Amazing memories'

"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!"

"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."
