Hertfordshire Family Photographers,
The Rushbys.

“There’s no such thing as being the perfect parent, so just be a real one.” – Sue Atkins

Hertfordshire Family Photographers, The Rushbys understand that parenthood can sometimes feel chaotic. A bit like a wild emotional rollercoaster ride of snapshots with every memory creating the story of your family. We’re not talking about ‘everything looks perfect’ Instagram posts, we’re talking about real-life chaos representing the love of a perfectly imperfect family. Have you been worried about bringing your young family to a studio because you are concerned about meeting certain expectations or feeling judged?

We are Sara and Lee of ‘The Rushbys’ and we are family photographers based in Hertfordshire. Our welcoming homely studio creates a relaxed environment for families at any stage of their parenthood journey. Being paw-rents ourselves to a completely bonkers Goldendoodle (dog), we know that tiny seed of dread that manifests when we have to take her anywhere new – so, we are not here to judge, just to create beautiful memories of your family that you will love!

 With 26 years of experience working as an Early Years educator most of Sara’s besties are under 5 – not much can faze her when it comes to young children. We combine an easy-going,  experience in our home studio with excellent communication meaning you are more likely to feel at ease in front of the camera enabling us to create authentic images of your children, your love and your family connection. Please have a look around and find out more about what you can expect from working with us.

Newborn, Baby and Cake Smash Customer


"They are so good at making you feel at ease in all of the sessions especially the newborn when everyday is a bit hazy anyway! The photos are absolute perfection and they are fantastic at capturing those moments."

Juliana - London

Newborn Customer


"Sara and Lee were very professional and the photo shoot session was lovely. The whole experience was amazing - they are very calm, friendly and highly experienced photographers. I was impressed by how they made the whole experience hassle free and made us and our baby feel really comfortable and relaxed"

Stephanie - St Albans

Newborn, Sitter and Family Customer


"We cannot speak highly enough of Sara and Lee. We visited them with our 7 day old baby girl and were quite nervous beforehand about how she would be during the shoot. Sara and Lee were just fantastic, we were totally put at ease from the start and were reassured that the session would centre around our daughter"

Abigail - Welwyn Garden City

Maternity and Newborn Customer


"They are very professional, patient and fully understand what you want to convey with these pictures. They truly listen to you and add your ideas, share suggestions and are able to capture the immense love each picture represents. I cannot recommend them enough, whoever looks at my children’s artwork end up shedding a tear or two, truly amazing work."
