Newborn Baby Art in Heathfield East Sussex

Hello from our Photography Studio in Heathfield

Newborn Baby Art Heathfield East Sussex

We had such a lovely morning photographing a lovely young newborn who came into our Heathfield studio with his parents and big sister for a Newborn Baby Art Photoshoot.

He was just 9 days new and this is an ideal age to have his first baby photographs taken as a gorgeous newborn and he was an absolute dream to photograph, he just slept his way through most of the shoot; what a chilled young man and here is a little taster of one of the images Sarah captured.

His mummy had been given one of our Ultimate Newborn vouchers as a gift at her baby shower.  For those who are not aware you can purchase one of our Ultimate vouchers from our studio or website for £99 and this is will give you lots of special gifts including four photoshoots.  The maternity photoshoot includes hair and makeup by Melissa Tate Batchelor our resident hair and makeup artist, a Newborn Baby Art Photoshoot, Little Sitters photoshoot along with a My first first year and or a Cake Smash.  The voucher also comes with a few goodies, a hand knitted cashmere snugly from Sue Hill Handknits and a small cuddly toy, it doesn't end there though as you will have a complimentary 8x6 inch photograph with your maternity and newborn baby art shoot and vouchers toward products with the remain two shoots.  Definitely an ideal gift for baby showers, newborn baby and christening gifts. Just click here for more information.

We can't wait to see this gorgeous little chap next week with his parents to view his lovely newborn baby art images.

We hope you love this sneak peek as much as we do.

Love,

Sarah and the Team

Sarah Tate Photography - Sue Hill Handknits Photo Shoot

Earlier this month we photographed Sue Hill Handknits’s latest collection at our studio in Heathfield, East Sussex.

We have been lucky enough to have been photographing Sue’s collections for many years, and at many different locations. If you

have not yet had the pleasure if seeing and (feeling!) Sue Hill’s merchandise then you really need to pay a visit to her shop situated in the lovely Pantiles, Tunbridge Wells.

Sue’s clothes are all handmade from the most exquisite materials and the knitted items are made from the finest cashmere products, as you can see Sue's styles are very traditional and her cashmere hand knits and Liberty print baby clothes are sold in some of the best stores in the world including Fortnum & Mason in London, Bergdorf Goodman in New York and Ma Mere in Tokyo as well as other stores, even earlier this year Prince George was photographed wearing one of Sue Hill’s romper suits !

Peter Grugeon Award nomination 2014 - BIPP Associateship - Sarah Tate ABIPP

I am extremely pleased to announce that the project I have been working on for the past  two and half years photographing many lovely pregnant couples and their delightful babies, has gained me an Associateship qualification with the BIPP (British Institute of Professional Photographers).

On top of the associateship, my work has also been selected by the judging panel to be put forward for the "Peter Grugeon Award 2014” which is to take place in Hertfordshire later this year.  Being nominated for the 2014 Peter Grugeon Award (named after the late Peter Grugeon FBIPP, best remembered for his images of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in the 1970s) is really a great honour , and to receive such recognition is pheunominal as only a handful of photographers are nominated each year.

I am now starting to work for my Fellowship !! so ladies if you are having a baby in the next couple of months and would like your lovely bump photographed, or if you would like photographs of your newborn baby then please give me a call at the studio …..

Sarah Tate  (ABIPP)

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.

I would like to thank all the ladies, gentlemen and newborn babies that have given their time this year to help me with my project of photographing Pregnancy and Newborn Babies, the response has been fantastic and we have had many laughs along the way.

Ideally you will need to be around 36-39 weeks pregnant or your baby needs to be no more than 2 weeks old! I am offering a free photo shoot and makeup along with an 8x6 print of your choice.

I look forward to hopefully hearing from you.

Sussex Pregnancy Photography -

Recently a very pregnant Louise came into the studio to have her pregnancy photo's taken.

Melissa from Beautify Me did Louise's nails and makeup before we went into the studio to take a series of shots.

Louise is 38 weeks pregnant with her first baby, a little girl who they are calling Evelyn.

Louise had bought along a few props of her own including a soft toy that has sentimental value and a pair of pink baby booties.

Once we got into the studio we were able to experiment with different lighting and backgrounds. We used the wind machine which was rather fun. After about an hour we decided we had enough shots and some really special ones in there too.

Louise came into the studio and is part of our promotional Pregnancy Photography offer which included makeup nails and a free photo shoot.  To show our appreciation Louise will be given a free 8x6 copy of a photo from her collection.


Pregnancy Photography – Lynne and Rory’s story

Being Pregnant is a very special time in your life, so to have that moment captured in a timeless photograph forever is something that many couples are choosing to do, whether you choose to have photographs with or without your clothes is very much a personal choice.

Pregnancy Photography by Sussex based Sarah Tate Photography
Last year a very lovely lady called the studio enquiring about having pregnancy photographs taken, her due date was mid December and she would very much like to have a photograph to celebrate her pregnancy and to give as a memento to her husband for Christmas.

Lynne booked in of our “Bumps A Daisy Package” which gives you a portrait sitting and framed 12 inch photograph , when she was 38 weeks pregnant, she then came back later to choose which ones she would like as that Special present for her husband.

Rory was born not long after and both Rory and Lynne have taken advantage of our Tiny Tots Package which records in stages the whole of your babies first year.!

It is now coming up to Rory’s first birthday and Lynne has a lovely record from the time she was pregnant and through her baby’s special first year which as we all know goes so quickly!

Here are a few of Lynne’s pregnancy photographs.
