Hello, I’m Sarah.
I’m a busy mum of 3 little people, a farmers wife and an artist.
This photography journey started for me just over three years ago. I was a stay at home mum yearning for a career where I could work around my family commitments while also being able to express myself creatively. I had studied at Elam School of fine Arts in Auckland as a painter but found that my paintings were a very personal subject matter and I had trouble connecting my art with my viewers. It was after taking my own daughter for a newborn photography session that I fell in love with the art of photography, so I brought an old DSLR camera on Trade me and google taught myself how to use it! Due to my artistic background the different elements of light,time and depth of field really made sense to me and I loved that my audience was already invested in the art as they already LOVE the subject matter!
I really love creating beautiful pictures and photography is a fantastic medium to do this! I also love LOVE!
So fast forward a few years, I’ve upgraded the camera twice and I have even been published in the local paper and bride and groom magazine NZ! I am beyond excited to see where the next year takes me with so many exciting projects in the pipeline...as well as relocating from the Bay of Plenty to Hamilton!
So get in touch if you want some beautiful images for your most precious moments or follow me on Facebook or Instagram and watch my story unfold
