First met Sophie and Royston when we were looking for a photographer for our wedding over 3 years ago. They are fantastic and do all they can to make all your visions come true. We now always use them for family pictures and recommend them to everyone! Lovely family business!

We have been using Sophie & Royston for a few years now, we are always thrilled with the pictures, the service, the whole experience. It’s such a pleasure to visit them

We are so pleased with our wedding photos and cannot reccomend Sophie enough. In the lead up to the wedding she answered any questions we had quickly and on the day she was just brilliant! From taking off her coat for us to sit on, almost getting run over (twice) and listening to me straight away when I asked to go back inside because I was cold! She really went above and beond. Thank you Sophie.

We had a cake smash shoot for our little ones first birthday, the photos are beautiful and Sophie & Royston made us all feel comfortable and relaxed – my little one loved them both and I’m sure we’ll be back for more photos in the future!

We used ICPhotographics for our wedding in July, they are fantastic!!! Not only are they lovely happy people, that make you feel at ease with everything, the pictures are amazing!!
It was a smooth process from meeting them for a quote to the end of our day. I emailed Sophie the night before with a change to our pictures and it was no problem to them at all. The customer service is amazing, as well as them capturing every moment of our day. They also do different/fun photos as well as the formal ones too. We received many more more photos than what was within our package, and also have them all in black and white. The wait for our photos was not long at all. I was told 2-3 weeks and received in just under 2 weeks. You guys are fabulous!!!
The price in which we paid was brilliant and I would pay and book these guys again and again. I highly recommend them, you will not be disappointed in any way. THANK YOU both so so much! 😃 Amanda and Mark


What should I bring?

This is a great opportunity to update your family photo’s and get an up to date portrait, i’d bring an outfit for this part of the session before we get baby changed and the cake comes out!
If baby has a favourite toy this can help make them more comfortable if they’ve not visited the studio before too.

Can we pick a theme?

Yes, we’ve got some options available on our instagram and website gallery but we’re always ready to create new themes and discuss what you think would make the session magical and memorable for you all.

Do you provide the decorations and cake?

Yes, we provide everything needed for your chosen theme and the cake. We also have a selection of outfits available to choose from too.

Can siblings get involved?

Indeed they can, I recommend to start the cake smash with just baby and then siblings can get involved. We’ve always got extra wooden spoons around to help with the smashing and mess making.

How long does the session take?

We allow an hour to an hour and a half. There’s a few elements to the session with the pre shoot for family photo’s and portraits, the main event and then time for a splash in the tub after.

Where are you located?

I’ve got a beautiful purpose built studio at the bottom of my garden in Sompting, near Worthing and Brighton. It’s easily to get too and has lots of free street parking available.
