Midweek Minis

Motherhood Photoshoots

Life as a mother is a whirlwind of emotions, from the anticipation of expecting a new bundle of joy to the tender moments with your precious little one and every beautiful stage in between. I believe that every moment of your motherhood journey deserves to be celebrated and captured in all its emotive glory. The 'midweek minis' in my Abergavenny photography studio is the perfect place to slow down time and enjoy the chapter of Motherhood you are in!


Whether you're an expectant Mum, a brand new Mum with a newborn, or you're a seasoned Mum with years of experience, these mini sessions are tailor-made to cherish and honour your unique motherhood story. And of course breastfeeding Mums are invited to join us for these special moments of connection and love.

Hey, I'm Sarah Haile

I've been an avid photographer since the age of 17.Documenting the world around me and using my camera to tell stories. 

But it was only when I became a Mother that I found my true passion in photography. And that was using my skills and my artistic eye to celebrate Motherhood! 

It is an honour to have helped so many other Mums rejoice in the journey that is Motherhood. Giving them the space and time to enjoy whichever chapter of parenthood they are in. And of course giving these women beautiful, intimate and honest images of themselves and their children that they can cherish forever!

I hope that I can do the same for you.

What people say...

"Agh Sarah is so amazing!!! I’ve had three lots of photo shoots with her now and each one has created amazingly special memories! Moments I’ll never get back again... and especially with a little one who is growing so fast these will always be so treasured by me.
She’s easy to be around and relax around - making for very natural and ‘real’ pictures - which is exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much Sarah xx" -Nadia

  • When should I book?
    For maternity sessions you can book anytime after your 20 week scan, I will help you arrange the date for your session. I advise Mothers to have their maternity portraits at around 35 weeks when you’re bump is in full bloom. Newborn sessions can take place when baby is between 1-5 weeks old. Most clients book whilst still pregnant but I can sometimes arrange sessions at a shorter notice if your baby is already here!
  • Do you pose babies with props or wraps?
    Simple answer no. I prefer a more natural approach to documenting babies, my newborn portraits capture the beauty of your new baby just as they are.
  • How long is a newborn session?
    1-2 hours but I’m certainly not strict with that. Our session will be very relaxed, if baby is feeling unsettled there’s no stress, I’m happy to take my time until we’ve got all those yummy shots.
  • How does payment work?
    I ask for a 50% deposit upon booking to secure your date. You may spread the rest of the payments out however suits you best, the remainder of your session fee is due before your session.
  • Do you print the images?
    At this moment I do not print your images for you. I am of course happy to guide you in printing them yourself.
  • Do you do family photoshoots?
    Absolutely! I've had the pleasure of being invited back year after year to document families and their growing little ones with most of my newborn clients!
  • What happens after my session?
    After your session I get straight on to your images. It usually takes three weeks for me to deliver your entire online gallery to you. Depending on the collection you choose you will be able to download or purchase your images directly from your private online gallery. You are also welcome to share the gallery with family or friends if they wanted to purchase any themselves! Then you have timeless photos of your wonderful pregnancy to enjoy always!
  • Where do sessions take place?
    My favourite place to shoot is in your very own home, in fact all newborn sessions take place there. However maternity, Motherhood or family sessions can also take place at a location special to you such as your favourite scenic spot or local bookshop. We can work together to find a location that suits you perfectly.
  • When will we receive our images?
    Your online gallery will be ready to view within 2-3 weeks after our session. You will be able to download or purchase any extra images directly from there.
