Outdoor family photographer

Hello, I’m Sandie, and I’m a family photographer in Ipswich, and owner of Heart in Focus Photography.

I have previously worked for many years as a child and family support worker, and a long term carer for a family member; and because of this experience, I am confident in helping people to feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the lens. My sessions are engaging, enjoyable, and full of laughter and joy.

Family means everything to me!

I remember when my kids were young and we booked a family photo shoot. We were in a small studio with a fake backdrop; told to sit or stand a certain way; and the kids had to be on their best behavior; and everyone had to put on their best fake smile (CHEESE!). The photos were ok, but they didn’t capture US.
Something very important was missing from those photos. Needless to say, It was the joy, our unique personalities, and connection. There is nothing more precious than seeing the love and closeness of your family in a photograph. Your kids will look back on those photos in years to come and remember the fun, laughter and love. That’s really the best part of my job!



Many of my photographs have been published in online photography magazines, and I have been the cover artist, and the featured artist in at least 2 photography magazines. Also, I have completed an advanced level course in photography.
