Beside The Seaside Photography
'Capturing the nostalgia of the seaside with memories that will last a lifetime'



A few nice words



Crystal Madgwick

Beside The Seaside Photography is amazing! Sophia has photographed my daughter 3 times. An easter shoot, watermelon smash for her 1st birthday and the lavender fields family shoot and every one has been amazing! She's always so patient with my little one, making the whole experience very enjoyable. Thanks to you, I have photos of my little girl I can cherish forever x

 gorgeous baby boy Thomas


Sophia Benham came to take some pictures of us when Thomas was just under two weeks old .

It was the hottest day of the summer, Thomas was feeding every five minutes, and me and Lenny still couldn’t quite believe we had become mummy and daddy to someone so perfect.

I cannot recommend Sophia enough, she made us feel at ease, capturing every change, feed, smile and cuddle.

I fell in love with the many images and found it impossible choosing which one to make into albums/ canvas or prints.

Thank you Sophia for every minute of your time and all the effort you have put into this wonderful keepsake x

It’s such a hard life being a newborn !!

What a pleasure it was for Eli to have been picked for winning the cutest boy and what a pleasure it was to have Sophia do the photoshoot she made myself and Eli feel very welcome in her home she was very understanding when Eli was starting to get a little fed up she allowed us to have a little break and take our time so I could feed him and settle him
The photographs are stunning i had one of the hardest decision deciding what photos I wanted to keep I would highly recommend if your looking for a professional friendly photographer What a lovely lady inside and out

Can’t recommend Sophia enough! The lavender field photos are amazing! Sophia did so well on the (very hot) day and got so many gorgeous photos of my girls that capture their personalities and friendship perfectly!
Myself and my family were absolutely overjoyed with the photographs and would highly recommend Sophia and a visit to Lordington Lavender too
