ABOUT SARA

Hi!  I'm Sara :)

My passion for photography started after the birth of my first daughter, Grace.  I used to bring her to photographers, order portraits, and quietly be disappointed by run-of-the-mill portraits with over-priced quality.  So, I practiced ... and practiced, my photography ... and it soon became became a passion, and obsession to learn more.  Three years later, Claire came along, and by this time I had become a "pretty good" hobby photographer, and more and more friends and family started noticing.  As my hobby grew, I began attending workshops and really gained an understanding of lighting, and all other components of photography.  Eventually, photography became my sole career and I've never been happier!

I absolutely love meeting new people, capturing the emotions of the moment, and always look forward to seeing my new friends at their next session.

I believe in loyalty in photography ... When a client becomes a friend, and continues to have me photograph their children, we develope a bond that I believe brings out the most natural interraction between the child and me/my camera.  We are able to capture not just emotions, but the child's personality.  When you can sense a personality behind the portrait, those are the portraits that become favorites.  Loyalty is a 50/50 partnership ... my "Client Friends" are often gifted with extras, such as: longer sessions, customized sessions, wardrobe consulting, and gifted products (to name a few!).

Life is simple.  I'm a Christian, a mom and wife.  I love coffee.  LOTS of coffee.  Movies and bonfires with family.  A night on the patio with friends and wine.  Shopping and decorating.  Long bubble baths.  Thunderstorms.  Scenic drives.

That's ME in a nutshell.
