San Diego Photographer

more about me

hen you're here, you're family.

Just kidding...but don't be surprised when I inadvertently become a part of your family's annual tradition and your only photographer for important milestones. Also, don't be shocked when that one person in the family, who was never a picture person....suddenly became a model within 5 minutes. Working with me means that you'll get your own personal storyteller, who knows how to work well with kids and everyone leaves feeling like that had a blast! That session was a much needed family bonding time and so worth it!

But wait! Your experience doesn't end at the end of the session, it ends with printed photos in your hands. That's my favorite part of the experience!

These 40 weeks of your life can feel like a long journey, but it will happen fast! You will miss this moment, the baby kicks, & your sweet baby's heartbeat on the ultrasound machine.

Family milestones that only happen once


Capturing the moments you'll wish for again when little ones are no longer little...

Let's be honest, raising little tiny human being is equally rewarding & exhausting. Parenthood behind the scenes has its perfect and imperfect moments. As your child grows older, you're going to miss those chubby cheeks, arm rolls, kissable cheeks, the irresistible baby scent, the belly laughs, and all the beautiful memories created as a family growing together.

Capturing the Transitional Stage

Infants are always a stage of life that's my personal favorite. It's where they're getting curious and learning how to do silly things.

You don't want to miss these moments, these infants are going to be curious about everything and will always give you a big surprise when you least expect it.

It's always a pleasure working with Sarah. From day one always so patient, accommodating, & easy going. Her work is beautiful, capturing such special moments for my little family.
