The most beautiful thing in this life

I make it my mission

Maternity & Newborn

What to Expect


Like most of you, I prefer CANDID photographs. There’s something about capturing a genuine smile or laugh rather than a forced one. That’s why you will not find me over-posing you during our shoots together. I’ll guide you and make some suggestions, but overall, you should just be natural and the magic will happen. Leave the rest up to me.

Whether you’d like a maternity, newborn, kids or family portrait session, let’s make memories together.

Tips to Prepare your Child for your Photoshoot

When you’re investing with a professional photographer to capture images of your child, you want to create the opportunity for the photographer to capture the best images possible. Here are some tips to make this happen.

Arrive early and don’t stress – children can often sense your energy and this may affect their mood.
Make sure your child/ren are well-fed and avoid coming during the middle of naptime, if possible.
Clothes: try to keep clothing as simple as possible. Avoid dressing your child in something with a busy design, white tops or super vivid colours.
Rather, dress them in solid colours, and something you consider “special” that helps represent their personality.
Comb their hair, clean their noses and wipe their faces just before they start their modeling sesh.
Stand back, relax and let the magic happen. My style of photography is to capture natural and intimate images of my subjects so please avoid calling out to your child while s/he is being photographed. The best, authentic images will come with a little patience.

Lastly, enjoy the moment!


I would just want to say that I’m so impressed by the time you took with the photo session, and the creative ideas you had for the pictures that you took. The pictures themselves are absolutely fantastic. Not only are they artistically gorgeous, but they capture this fabulous dog who has been such a huge part of our lives for over thirteen years. Can’t thank you enough.

We worked with Sara to shoot our baby's 1st birthday. Sara was such a pleasure to work with! She made the shoot easy and enjoyable and the photos turned out better than I could have imagined...absolutely stunning! Looking forward to working with her again.

We’ve never really looked forward to getting family photos done, as the kids never really take direction of the photographer well, they can’t get a good shot, and we just get stressed out with the whole process. It was so different with Sara. The kids loved her, and she went with their direction and got great shots out of them. When she did give direction, they listened! The energy was so positive, and we all enjoyed ourselves. On top of that, the photos turned out amazing. Sara was able to capture some great moments as well as bring out the best in us in our posed shots as well. Although it cost more to work with her than with past photographers, the money was well worth it.”

For the past two years we've made it a tradition to have professional family pictures done. Our first foray into this was with Sara and we've never diverted since. Sara has proven to be a patient photographer, a trait that is necessary when dealing with young children, and she has an incredible talent to add to it. I have been so impressed with the pictures we've had done by Sara and had so many compliments on them. They are pieces of art in our home and are deservedly so. We've had pictures printed with her and have been wowed by the quality of the prints. I would highly recommend using Sara's services again and again.

Thanks Sara for our awesome photo session. You did an amazing job of getting everyone relaxed and smiling. We're excited to see the photos! This kids were really glad we had a pro to capture us with Buddy! Thanks so much!

Sara has a way of catching perfect images of people, as we soon discovered! Both my husband and I loved working with her, she was not pushy and made us feel completely comfortable while she was taking pictures, none of it felt forced. I am glad to say that Sara is an amazing photographer and manages to capture light and people in a way I never thought possible.
