West Sussex Photography Studio
Specialising in Newborn and Portrait Photography

Featured in







I create beautiful photographs of you and your children (even the four-legged ones), from my little photography studio located off the main London Rd in East Grinstead, West Sussex.


Newborn babies are my speciality, not only do I love a cuddle but I love capturing the newness of life. Those tiny little flakes of newborn skin and sweet little eyelashes! The thing that makes me really happy, is giving you beautiful photographs that you are going to treasure and seeing your reaction when you see those photos for the very first time.

Yes, it’s true I do like a put-together image, it's all about the styling... but the best images are those in-between moments when your youngest has just whispered the most bizarre thing in your ear and you are both giggling about it! So please don't think all the pictures you’re going to receive will be stiff or lack emotion! It is my job to capture the very essence of who you are, as an individual or as a family!

It's all about the personality! 


Celebrate motherhood, celebrate your children being this little - because they are only this little once! Celebrate your dog turning ten this year. Celebrate your mums and dads… We are here NOW!

So what are you waiting for? I can't wait to hear from you...

Cake Smash & Splash Photoshoots

The perfect way to celebrate your little one's first or even second birthday is with a cake smash and splash photoshoot. I provide the cake and the outfit, so all you need to do is bring your baby. Although, you don't need to be little to enjoy a cake smash photoshoot. I have sessions taking place with 30 and 50-year olds and even dogs, so it's suitable for any age really. You only live once!

Maternity Photoshoots

There is nothing more special than documenting your journey to motherhood with a maternity photoshoot. The elegance package is a popular choice. With this package, hair is professionally styled and make-up is applied by a fantastic local MUA. Leaving mum feeling pampered and special for her maternity photos.

Hello It's me

I was wondering if after all this time, perhaps you'd like to meet? To go, over everything? (okay, okay I'll stop writing this in the style of Adele). First and foremost I'm all about faaamily! Maybe one of the reasons I love to photograph other people's... I'm an introverted, extrovert. I often feel guilty for not getting my ass down to the gym at least three times a week and for eating copious amounts of chocolate. Music makes me happy and so does my Molly dog. 




Hazel fitted my little one in after being let down by a different photographer and was so lovely and professional.

She was so gentle and patient with him, making sure he was comfortable and not too hot as was during a heat wave which just put me right at ease. She just went above and beyond asking what look I would like and putting in her own input too and her knowledge and eye for details showed in the final photos - which are just beautiful and I couldn’t be happier!

Definitely recommend!

"OMG Hazel, I cannot cope! They are incredible! Honestly you have smashed it. The photographs are so much more than I thought they would be, considerings they where little pickles!"

Hayleigh Simpson - East Grinstead


"Thank you so much for the gorgeous pictures from the newborn shoot you did for our little one. We felt so relaxed and never felt rushed or stressed when the baby needed feeding or changing. The studio was so clean & covid secure and Hazel was so friendly & loving when posing our baby. The final images were so beautiful, we had trouble choosing. We'll deffinately be back for sibling shots when he's a bit bigger.
