Hi I’m Sarah,

As a mother of three amazing kids, I am keenly aware of the rapid passing of time and how, with that, memories fade. The first time you hold those tiny fingers, catch the first smile, then giggles, learning to walk, and first words; all of these moments are so vivid and special, you feel you will never forget them. You probably won’t lose those feelings but the details, the picture in our mind fades.

My passion for capturing the details was born with the arrival of my first child, and as a photographer I share that with you. As a specialist in newborn, babies and children I capture those precious details for you. Together we can create beautiful forever images that 5, 10, 20 years from now you can look at and be reminded of that dimpled chin, pouty lip, or silly grin.

I love to work with natural light whenever possible and to get outside to take advantage of the incredible beauty around my home Studio in Niagara-on-the-Lake. When nature isn’t cooperating, I am also happy to work in the studio with lighting. Aside from newborn sessions, which are necessarily styled and posed with as much input as you would like, I make every effort to photograph with a natural style that is true to my subject. I love to interact and observe and allow the little ones time to feel comfortable with me so when I get that ‘look’ it’s genuine and most importantly, it will make you feel connected to the moment that I capture. Actually, I use the same approach for the adults too.

Thank you for your interest in my photography. I would love the opportunity to create beautiful forever memories for you to cherish.
