I often get the question of “where is it best to take maternity photos?”. The answer is wherever you feel comfortable and beautiful! I’m also a person who doesn’t like to choose just one thing, so a “best of both worlds” scenario is what I’m after! For maternity sessions, this could look like having it half in your home and half outside. For Anne and her growing family, we chose to split time in their neighborhood! The first half was a cozy in home maternity photography session, and the second half a one minute walk down the sidewalk to a little park!

Finding the Light

Photographer honesty time—I get a thrill from figuring out how to make you look like you’re somewhere else. By that I mean, if we had a small patch of woods in the middle of the city, it’s my honor to make it look like you’re in the wilderness! For Anne and her family, we had a little playground next to a wooded area, which worked perfectly against her grey maternity sweater dress!! Putting together the puzzle pieces is what it’s all about. 

In Home Maternity Photography

For their in-home maternity photography session, we hung out in Violet’s room, and she showed me her favorite toys! She lined them up on the windowsill and then tried sitting with them herself! Hah! She was quite dismayed to find that she didn’t fit as well as her stuffed animals. 

Window light is a dream. It creates a somewhat dramatic and dreamlike quality, and looks incredible on any skin tone. Natural light, man. It’s just the best. 

I’m so excited to meet their little boy so soon, and for their growing family!

"Sarah was absolutely amazing to work with! Every single picture we got back was nothing short of perfect. Our families and friends were amazed at how great our photos turned out as well as the volume of photos we received. She made sure to capture moments that were special to us on our wedding day, as well as make time to get all of the family photos we wanted. Something that I found to be really helpful was how organized Sarah was. She sent us questionnaires to get to know us and even created a day of timeline so my partner and I, and our families and bridal parties, would know what to expect and when formal photos would be taken. Her attention to detail and caring nature ensured that our photos reflected not only our wedding day but our personalities as well. I cannot say enough good things about her and her work. She is a fantastic photographer and a great person to work with.

"...Sarah went above and beyond our expectations. She spent ample time talking with me about my vision of the day, provided a detailed itinerary to help me stay organized, and was a listening ear when I needed practical wedding advice. Her warmth, kindness, and genuine nature helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. In addition, we are delighted with Sarah’s technical qualities as a photographer - her sense of mise-en-scène, attention to detail, and her remarkable ability to capture poignant and symbolic moments in an inter-cultural, inter-racial, pandemic wedding."

"Beyond being a good photographer, Sarah truly works to make her clients feel comfortable and special during her sessions. She is incredibly personable and there were never any awkward, empty moments during our session! My fiancee and I were truly in the moment and Sarah allowed us to have candid, special moments together while she captured them for us to remember forever...Our day was stress-free thanks to her detailed planning...I absolutely recommend Sarah for anyone and everyone. We are forever thankful for her openness and hard work."

"Sarah creates a fun, creative, and safe environment that brings out the very best you to photograph. I had a great time in my headshot session with her and I ended up with beautiful photos (that actually look like me) I would be proud to bring into any audition room. 10/10 would recommend!"
