Welcome to Sal-ooo-stri Photography! I just love creating classy, timeless portraits of babies and children.
I have a studio space at my home in Benfleet for fine art and newborn shoots and also offer seasonal environmental portraits for families

“Absolutely loved the photos and photographer, thank you so so much from the bottom of my heart”

My Photoshoots

I take time to bond and carefully style the children I photograph. I provide beautiful clothing for fine art shoots and style hair, which little ladies adore!
For location shoots, we will go somewhere seasonally beautiful for a relaxed and natural shoot. These last for around an hour and are lots of fun. The season starts with daffodils late March, followed by bluebells, blossom, summer blooms and autumnal colours.

Full session fee

Commission a family location shoot, newborn shoot or any studio shoot by purchasing my session fee for just £35. This includes pre-shoot and styling advice and a one-two hour shoot in Essex.

Print Collections

I offer two straight-forward packages for all full sessions. Choose your package after you view your gallery of images. I print on beautiful fine art paper and prints are mounted ready for framing.


Christmas Mini Sessions

Exciting plans at the North Pole studio including my highly acclaimed Naughty Elf on a Shelf for babies and children. Includes one mounted 12×8 inch giclee fine art print.

Baby’s First Christmas

Celebrate baby’s special first Christmas with an adorable Christmas mini session. Baby reindeers and baby elves, what more could you want for Christmas?!

Paola Salustri LMPA

I used to work in magazine publishing until taking a break to raise my three children: my total inspiration for becoming a photographer!
Having completed nearly two years of training, workshops and mentoring with some of the UK’s leading award-winning photographers, including Nina Mace, Saraya Cortaville and David Calvert FMPA, I earned my Licentiate Award with the Master Photographers Association. The MPA is one of the world’s leading professional bodies for photography.
