Hello Everyone this is your Sussex Family Photographer checking in,

Well it has been a very busy summer for the team and on a personal note I have become a Grandmother for the third time! Grandmother I hear you say, you don't look old enough….oooh you are kind and yes I am placing myself firmly in the yougn and fun category ;)

So today I want to celebrate all things family and introduce to you the lovely Sykes family who came to the studio wanting a complete series of shots. They have two sons one of whom has a lovely girlfriend, a daughter and of course their doggie who may be little but is a huge member of the family!

I wanted to concentrate on my more contemporary high key photography as the nature of the shots I wanted to create for them really suited this. We did all sorts of family configurations whilst having tremendous fun; all shoots here are fun as I just love to laugh and be a bit silly really :)

They were over the moon with their shoot and I was a pleasure to create their framed photographs and image box, which is proving very popular with my lovely clients.

We are also very excited to be exhibiting at the French Market in Heathfield over the bank holiday weekend. We also have the honour of photographing the event and this is something we look forward to every year. There is definitely an incentive to pop along to see us as we will have lots of offers available on the day that you can only grab if you come to the market so if you are in the market for a Sussex family photographer and want to grab a bargain we are the team for you, so come along and see us you won't be disappointed. We will be exhibiting some of this year's most popular products so you can have a good old browse whilst munching on some goodies from the other vendors.

Hope to see you all soon,

Sarah and the team

Sussex Portrait Photographer


Hello from your Sussex Portrait Photographer!

It's been a while since my last post and that is going to change this year so you will be hearing a lot about the goings on at the studio. I am really looking forward to sharing more images with you and there will be a little story behind each one because coming to us is a fun experience and we love our clients!

Things have been busy here; we have been revamping the studio space so the editing suite is completely different now! We will soon be having a new addition to the family and I will become a grandmother again.. I know, I know I am not old enough but having little ones running around again is such a joy and to be ahem, cough, cough as young as I am means I can run along with them ;)

I don't know about you but I think Spring is certainly in the air and we are celebrating with a special offer for families that would like to come along for a family session during the Easter Holidays; if you book with us before 25th March for your Easter holiday shoot, as a little thank you from us the shoot will be complimentary so a nice saving of £65.00…now that can't be bad can it!!!

Here are a selection of some of the fun shoots we've had in the studio recently, so go on give us a call and let's create some memories for you too.

Looking forward to seeing you soon,

Sarah and the team

Pet Portraits - Gift Experience - Sussex Photographer-Sarah Tate

Well over the last couple of months I have photographed many pets, ranging from a very shy Collie, who like all Collies would not give me eye contact and hid in the corner, a very pretty little Yorkshire Terrier Cross who came along to the shoot with his owners, although the shoot was a for his newborn family member, I just couldn't resist and I ended up getting many lovely shots of our furry friend ! and then of course we have the Springer Cross Cocker Spaniel, who bounced around as much as the balls that were being thrown, this weekend I have a lovely cat coming so it will be another challenge. 

So if you have a pet, or know someone who would love some photos with their pet then may I introduce you to our very own

Sussex Portrait and Maternity Photographer - Sarah Tate Photography Blog

What can I possibly say in this blog that isn’t going to bore you, or myself for that matter!! 

Some Blogs just seem to be a regurgitation of an essay we had to do at School entitled “What I did this weekend” And quite frankly, do you really want to know what I did this weekend?

So I will try and inform you of developments at Sarah Tate photography and stuff that I think you really should know that has been flitting around inside my head waiting for a conduit, and these blogs will be that conduit. So strap in and prepare for a wander around my mind.

 The recent Le Marche was fantastic, the sun shone and I thought Heathfield was shown off at its best – a festival atmosphere with food drink and friendly faces everywhere. One of the joys of being a local photographer is that I see people I have photographed in the past and can see them blossoming- nothing gives me greater pleasure than taking photographs at peoples weddings, Birthdays and social events for people I first photographed when they were in primary school – although it is somewhat ageing!!

I sold a record number vouchers during Le Marche and am gearing up the Studio for a busy time leading up to Christmas – don’t forget to get photographs done of your little darlings before they disappear to college or university – they will make a fabulous Christmas present.

 FREE MONEY– that got your attention didn’t it, well done for making it this far into my Blog. I won First Prize for a Maternity Photograph and got some lovely prizes, but more importantly my models Emma and Hannah won £500!! Cash, for sitting and looking beautiful, easy peasy! This was all part of the Bump 2 Baby programme, which comprises of a free pregnancy photograph and a complimentary photograph of your newborn baby.   So, if you and your gorgeous baby want to be in with a chance – just enrol on the Bounty website or see my website for details.

TALKING OF MODELS, as I was, I am thrilled to announce that I have got two male models lined up for the Dudeoir pictures – so keep an eye out for the window display in my studio window, but please also keep an eye on the traffic lights  - I don't want the fence disappearing again!

I have also done a Hollywood style 40’s photoshoot, and I have to say, the results where rather good, which just goes to show that I can produce any style you want.

I have got to go, my glamorous P.A. Miss Pew, returns to the office today and I have to clean and tidy and get her desk in order before she comes in a puts me in order!!

So, anyway, what I did this weekend was spend the time with my gorgeous Grandchildren, taking photos – bliss.
