The newborn & family

The Newborn & Family Experience

Hey! Thanks for stopping by I am Sarah :) A hopeless romantic, hippie-ish, momma and raleigh newborn photographer. Wedding & Newborn photography have my heart. 

If I could be granted 1 wish...I would wish for a time machine. I would do anything to go back to the day my first born came into the world, to the day I first set eyes on my first born, to the day I watched her take her first step...and the list will only continue to grow as time goes on, until I have a lifetime of memories I would live over and over again.

For now photography is our only time machine... 

When you have little ones, time just goes by entirely too fast...and I love bottling up these sweet memories for my sentimental mommas out there in a candid and beautiful style. These moments are such a fleeting time in our life but photography allows to hold on to them forever.

I love creating beautiful images with my whole being!  I put every ounce of heart & soul into my images and really want them to stand out from other traditional style portraits. I absolutely love showing the connection you share with the those who light up your life!


what makes us unique


I love creating tangible art for my clients! We live in a digital world, but I strongly feel that a digital format will never take your breath a way the a gallery wall or art album will. Photography is an art...and nothing will capture your heart more than holding a piece of your art with your loves images, Yes, I do offer digitals, but along with digital I love to help my clients create custom art pieces to cherish

what makes us unique


I specialize in weddings & babies! And that is a unique approach to photography that allows me to grow with my families. I have photographed so many couples as brides, and have now followed them to capture more amazing moments as their life experiences lead them through family life.

what makes us unique


Sarah has been taking our family photos for over 2 years now and we couldn’t be happier with the product she delivers every time! She has such a talent for capturing the real-life special moments in a natural way, that we as a family will cherish for years to come. She is a joy to work with, and her aesthetic is beautiful. Not only does Sarah have quite an artistic and original eye, but the quality of her photo editing is also something we value very much. We highly recommend Sarah and her wonderful work!

"She has such a talent for capturing the real-life special moments in a natural way"

Sarah has photographed all three of our children as newborns and beyond. She is so personable and great to work with! Even when I feel like everything isn't coming together she manages to capture some of the sweetest photos that I will always cherish! She is so patient, friendly, professional, flexible...the list goes on! We've also been to weddings she has shot and she is present, but not at all intrusive and so enjoyable to work with in all settings. We just love her!

"She is so patient, friendly, professional, and flexible"

Sarah truly works magic! She did a maternity photo shoot for my family and it could have been a disaster, but instead we received very beautiful pictures. I really wanted the typical "sibling kissing belly" shot. I didn't get that because my son was less than cooperative, but what I got was so much more! Beautiful, natural, elegant photos that we will cherish for years to come. 

"Beautiful, natural, elegant photos that we will cherish for years to come."

Sarah was such a pleasure to work with! Her communication was timely and informative and her contract and billing process was easy as pie - just what a busy mom needs! Despite my fussy 2 yr old, with whom she was fantastic, she managed to capture a moment in time as we welcome a newborn baby into our family. I couldn't be more happy with our photos! I see photography as an investment in memories and Sarah is well worth the investment.

"Sarah is well worth the investment!"

Sarah was phenomenal! She did our wedding pictures and has always done our family portraits...We have so much fun with her, and I personally love how well she does with my kids, which isn't an easy task. Not only has she found her talent, but she is just such a gem! We have loved Sarah for many years, and will continue to have her photograph our family as long as she's willing!

"We have so much fun with her!"
