About us


Samantha Devoti is the face and driving force behind Top Baby Photography – the premier Photographer in Hertfordshire. Sam launched her business in March 2010 and through hard work, dedication and a real love for her art and customers, she has grown her photography company in to a thriving, fun and vibrant business. Sam’s aim is to give her customers absolute value for money along with a quality product and service. An ever-growing number of satisfied customers are testament to this. Sam prides herself on offering a flexibility and freedom of choice on all her packages. Here Sam is pictured with her two boys, Albie and Harry.

March 2013, just three short years on, saw the launch of Sam’s Flamstead Studio and Gallery, Website and Top Photography Monthly Newsletter. With this expansion, a bit of office assistance was required, so Cathy Clarke came on board, enabling Sam to concentrate on her Studio time.

In 2014 Sam introduced her 1-2-1 Viewing Consultations. These replaced the online viewing gallery format, offering a more personalised VIP service. After viewing your images in our comfortable big screen lounge, Sam can answer your questions, edit your images and design any wall art you may be interested in. This is when she will also tell you about the monthly offers available, ensuring that you get the absolute most from your budget.

Sam has expanded on her Newborn photography in a big way and qualified for membership of The Baby & Newborn Photography Association – BANPAS. BANPAS is a specialist organisation promoting safe baby and newborn photography. Sam also gained membership to the SWPP (Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers). Sam entered her first Newborn image into the SWPP monthly competition and gained a ‘Highly Commended’ in 2013 and is now is a regular award winner with The Guild of Photographers, attaining 17 Awards in 2014 and now up to 22 in 2015.

Things may have changed a lot in a short space of time, but the bottom line is Sam’s drive to give her customers beautiful and affordable photography.

Sam says:

‘I am delighted to be able to specialise in Newborn photography as it’s my most favourite topic to picture. Recording all the little features a newborn has is just priceless and I feel very honoured to be able to do so. Having had my boys I can appreciate how quickly children grow and it may be a cliche, but your newborn will not be small for long! To now have a website dedicated to my newborn photography is fantastic and I can’t wait to capture many more little fingers and toes!’
