Bold statement next to family portrait of parents and baby with their cat, cocker spaniel and greyhound at home


A family can be defined in many ways, they come in all shapes and sizes, and every one is precious. Whether it is a newcomer to the home, a birthday party in the park, a christening, a blessing or a day out together - I can be there to capture every special moment.

When you are a parent, you'll know, you can go to a family event, a party, even a birthday day out, and get home to realise you didn't get a single photo with your children. So when people ask me "why would you offer family shoots when everyone has a phone to take pictures on these days?"

I ask them, who is usually holding the phone?


Blue Hare family photography often has a film-like quality because I am utterly addicted to the nostalgic colours and feel of my own childhood photos, and I see no better way to capture and represent the fun and fleetingness of family life.


Our family photography is for wild children, birthday parties, candle blowing, balloon popping, big days out, and tutu's. It's for the introverts, the extroverts, the shy ones and the performers. Even the furry ones!


From maternity shoots in the garden, to twenty minute character portraits, to four hour parties in the park, there is an option for every eventuality. We can work together on what you are looking for and, as long as its safe(!), anything goes!

“Sarah captured my daughter's 2nd & 3rd birthday parties so beautifully! I knew I wouldn't manage to take many photos myself, but really wanted to capture the emotions & atmosphere of the day. Sarah could not have been more wonderful! So natural, very discrete, super smiley, kind & helpful, and very professional. I was blown away by the photos & her talent - she noticed all the little things I didn't; facial expressions, tears of joy, all the giggles & fun. I cannot recommend her enough!”
