We've had the pleasure of working with Sara for our maternity photos as well as our baby boy's 6 month photos. Sara is so calm and caring, which makes the photography experience extremely enjoyable and comfortable for everyone.

We are absolutely obsessed with our maternity photos which turned out even better than we ever could have imagined. She was so patient and gentle with our little guy during his photos, we couldn't recommend her enough!

better than we could have imagined

As humans, we were created to desire something beautiful and uplifting, something that when seen, brings some sort of an emotion - joy, happiness, laughter... 

That’s my desire with the photos I take for you! To artfully document the real, raw moments and emotions in the everyday chaos that the journey of motherhood often brings. I want to offer a complete, stress-free photo experience, so that all that you have to do is sit back, relax, and simply enjoy being present with the ones you love the most. Finally, I want to serve you by making the memories we capture together tangible - that when hung on your walls, or held in your hands, you have a constant reminder of all the love and laughter you're surrounded by.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things. - Philippians 4:8

"Sara was such a delight to work with! My daughter was a complete nightmare the entire time and Sara handled it like it was just another day in paradise! As a photographer myself I was panicking on the inside knowing the photos were going to be a complete mess and when I opened my delivered gallery I wanted to cry...I stared at the most beautiful images of my sweet girl for hours!

Still some of my favorite photos ever taken of her, I can't thank Sara enough!"

“I’ve had the wonderful experience of having Sara photograph newborn pictures of both my kids, maternity, and family pictures. Sara is so sweet and works well with families who have sassy toddlers. We have loved having her photograph big moments for our family.

As a mom of a toddler and newborn, it’s difficult to find the right clothes and time to get ready for a shoot. Sara makes it easy and provides a beautiful wardrobe to choose from for the mom, kids, and newborn.”
