I'm Sara, and I'm here to fly the flag for camera-shy women and to help you create a set of beautiful, natural photos that capture your stories, loves and passions and that you will absolutely LOVE.
Whether you're looking for a new and authentic headshot that knocks the competition out of the park, would love some natural family photos that don’t look forced or staged or are planning your super-fun wedding, I want everything about your photography experience with me to be amazing and for you to absolutely love your photos!
I’ve spent the past 6 years becoming a specialist in making even the most camera-shy subjects feel confident, relaxed and at ease. I am a total people person who passionately believes in having great connections with all my clients, and I see no reason why having your photo taken can’t be fun and not at all cringey! Using natural light and creative locations (both outdoor and indoor) I make sure my photos ooze personality over poses and are unmistakably YOU.
I'm Mum to 2 small boys so I know how to fully embrace chaos! I know that real life isn't about posing awkwardly for the camera with a fake smile, it's about feeling relaxed and capturing the real moments that happen when something is fun! Because I'm a Mum I also know that most of us take on the role of unofficial photographer for our families, but then who's taking the pictures of you? So if you haven’t seen a family photo with you in it that you actually like, we need to talk!
Making people feel confident in their photos is at the heart of everything I do, and I believe that everyone deserves to have a collection of photos they feel is complete. Looking back through old photos is one of my favourite things to do, whether that's our family albums from the eighties (and the exceptional fashion statements we all rocked!) or our wedding photos from 2012. Our photographs are so precious to me, and they're why I do what I do. As time passes, they keep our memories alive and that, to me, is priceless. Here are a few photos from my life growing up which I just can’t imagine being without!
Our wedding day back in 2012 aka my best ever day!
From the get go we knew we wanted the day to feel completely relaxed and fun more than sticking to all the formal traditions – all we really knew was that we wanted to get all our favourites together for a gigantic knees up and our priorities centred largely around eating delicious food, drinking 80s inspired cocktails and keeping the dancefloor packed all night. We kept the traditional parts of the day that felt meaningful to us, but the rest was done our way.
If you're getting married and this sounds like your kind of mindset, I would love to shoot your wedding!
