I’m Sandi Ford, the person behind the lens at Bumps, Babes and Beyond Photography based in Neenah, WI.
My style is timeless, natural and organic.
I specialise in photographing newborns which really is my passion, but I do also love watching the babies grow and capturing their milestone moments!
During my time in the UK I was considered one of Englands leading and award winning newborn photographers, also specialising in classic, sensual and artistic pregnancy/maternity photography, and fun and natural baby and family portrait photography, with my images featured in both photography publications, magazines and in the International Press.
I recently moved from London, England to Appleton, Wisconsin, where I am loving each day learning my new way of life, and I am so excited to be bringing my business to the Fox Cities; I can’t wait to start working with my new families!
I love newborn photography; I do feel like I have the best job in the world. I love my job and I take great pride in what I do.
It’s true I get peed (and sometimes pooped!) on, but for me it’s worth the end result…great photographs that will fill your home and make you happy for years to come. Every client I see is special and unique and has a story to tell, and it is my honour and a privilege to tell it, and pass these memories down through generations.
I fell in love with photography 10 years ago while travelling, and since then I’m so blessed to have had some of my newborn work featured on US Television, in the International Press and also international coverage of my sensual nude and classic Maternity Photography.
In 2014 I was given the Editor’s Choice award at BP4U Online Photography Magazine, and 2012 was awarded the title of Top Portrait Photographer by online magazine West London Mum. I was voted one of West London’s Top 20 Portrait Photographers in 2011.
I have won a number of awards from the SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers) for my images, and had my work featured in the books “Photographing Newborns” by Mimika Cooney, and Heather Mosher’s ‘How to Photograph Your Kids Like a Pro’.
In addition, I have also been featured in various international newspapers, The USA Today Show, KTLA, BoredPanda, Buzzfeed, WGN Chicago, Huffington Post, The Daily Mail, The UK and U.S. BabyCentre Blogs, Cosmopolitan magazine, the UK Mirror Newspaper, the ‘Riverside Journals’ luxury lifestyle magazine, Digital Photographer Magazine and various NCT publications.

Bumps, Babes and Beyond Photography started life in April 2010 and was one of the best things I ever did!
