Let's face it, life is crazy, and the years fly by faster than we'd like them to. But kids aren't going to be "kids" for very long, so that's why it's so important to get family photos taken.

Sure, you could set up your phone with a self-timer, but wouldn't you rather have a professional photographer guide you through poses and get your little one to laugh naturally? We all know what a struggle that can be, especially with husbands!! LOL!!

I've worked with hundreds of families over the years so I know what works best. My sessions are fun, quick and easy! I know that all you really want is that "one good photo" for your holiday card, and I promise to deliver that along with many more images to treasure forever!


My summers are reserved for weddings, engagements, & senior sessions. But in the spring & fall I hold Mini Family Sessions and give you plenty of dates and times to choose from. I have found that this is the perfect time to get photos taken when it's not incredibly hot or freezing cold.

Just let me know if you'd prefer a spring or fall session and I will send you a list of dates & times that I have available.

CONTACT ME ASAP so we can get you on the calendar!

What to Wear

I know that one of the biggest stresses when preparing for a photo session is deciding what to wear. Lucky for you, I will send a style guide to help you choose outfits that make your family look their very best!

And don't forget to bring the most important accessory to your shoot... YOUR DOG!!! If you have a dog, I always encourage you to bring them along because after all, they are your family too!

no need to stress, I'm here to help you!

The Day of Your Session

Good news! This experience isn't going to be like those stiff family studio photos from back in the day. Instead we are going to venture around, play games and laugh.

I always bring a treasure chest for kids to pick out a toy at the end of of the session because trust me, bribes work! I also have special treats for older kids & parents because everyone needs to be rewarded for giving me their best smiles!

time to get those photos you've been dreaming of!

Print Ordering

I'm a huge advocate for printing your images and having something tangible from your session. That's why I offer a variety of products such as albums, canvases, and wallet prints. These items are great for holiday cards, gifts, and keepsakes.

The print lab that I use is IMPECCABLE! I can't guarantee the color or quality through any other vendor. I want to make this process as easy as possible so you can get the products you love!

GET those images PRINTED!!






What to Expect

the process

the schroder family

"We loved our mini session and got so many wonderful photos! My family had so much fun. And for the short attention span of my children, it was perfect! Sara is a great photographer and she is great with the kids. She captured the true personality of my family in her photos. I would recommend her to others!"

The Williams family

"Sara is amazing to work with. She was so professional, so helpful, and so communicative. Our photos turned out stunning! The editing is amazing, but her skill behind the camera was even more outstanding. She had the perfect location, even offered to help us with our outfits. I literally had to do nothing but show up and smile. It was fantastic!"

The Dockter Family

"We met Sara back in 2015 when we hired her for our wedding. Her pictures turned out amazing! Since our wedding we have used her to photograph our family and children 4 additional times. Sara is fun and energetic and makes sure to capture stunning pictures!"

the banks family

"We absolutely love Sara and the photos she’s done for our family! She is so patient, kind, professional, and fun to work with.
