You might think your everyday life is messy and unattractive, but I’m here to tell you that all your moments are beautiful… Especially when you’re not pretending to be someone else. The best portraits come from genuine experiences and the chaos of everyday life. I am not going to create those moments for you. I don’t want your session to look like an advertisement. I want to focus on your real life, whether that’s going about your business in your home or out on a family excursion.

The Family Photo Essay

Take a look at how your session will go. This is not your typical family portrait or “lifestyle” session. My goal is to capture your way of life as you are—toothless smiles and messy hair included.

Pricing at a Glance

Birth announcements, holiday cards and albums can be included with your session. Everything is customizable and I’ll walk you through my full pricing guide when you are ready to book.

Let’s Connect

Tell me more about your family—quirks, habits, funny moments, ways you bond—and we’ll set up a time to capture all of that.

What People Are Saying

SARAH IS AN INCREDIBLE PHOTOGRAPHER. My favorite part about her style is that it requires no posing! Not having to pose (especially with two kids under 2!) takes all of the stress away and provides fun and beautiful results. Seeing the details of your everyday life that would otherwise go unnoticed captured in a photo is magical and genuine. In a world where so many things are arranged for a specific appearance, Sarah’s take on real life is refreshing. When you see your world through Sarah’s eyes you will be amazed at how lovely it really is.
