Welcome to Sarah Elizabeth Portraits,

Thank you for taking the time to visit our site!

We are portrait photographers who love all things family - that includes weddings, family sessions, baby portraits, and family events such as birthday parties.  We like to work with families across the lifespan, from proposals, to first dances, to first steps, to first day of school. As a family business we value building relationships with families and feel privileged to be asked to be a part of very special occasions that will be remembered for a lifetime. We believe that portrait photography should be an experience, from the moment you first walk in to our studio, to receiving your professionally printed images. We want to hold on to the tradition of family portraits but with a modern twist.  Whether that is a wedding or simply a walk in the park, we are passionate about documenting the lives of the families that we work with and would love to hear from you. 


We are based in Lichfield, Staffordshire but cover all of Birmingham and the West Midlands and sometimes even further afield.  We work out of our professional photography studio at Hawkesyard Estate, or we also work on location if you want a more documentary style session in the comfort of your own home.  We believe in not just taking photos, but more importantly printing them.  We work with professional photo labs to deliver a range of high quality photo products following your session.

Most people are nervous when it comes to booking a photographer, due to feeling awkward in front of the camera, or worried about being asked to do something that is outside of your comfort zone.  Well you have come to the right place! We understand that it can be a daunting experience so we do our very best to ensure that you feel relaxed, and our style of working is natural and candid rather than posed.

If you have any questions or queries please don't hesitate to get in touch.  Our aim is to provide you with a professional, bespoke experience that you will enjoy from start to finish.

"Looking for amazing photos? Look no further!

I have used Sarah for different photo shoots (photos of my 2 sons, document my father's 70th birthday and to take photos of my baby yoga class). She is extremely professional and puts everyone at ease straight away. She has an amazing ability of catching fantastic natural shots."

"Thank you so much for coming and taking photos of my family - you captured us so well, the photos are beautiful and I will treasure them forever. Sarah put us at ease and made the whole shoot very relaxing and fun. Children change so quickly and it is so wonderful to have special moments captured. Thank you Sarah xx"
