hey there

You have this beautiful family that you just can't get enough of, and want to share every bit of your love with. I get that. Being a mom is my favorite part of this journey of life; moments together with just family with no distractions are so rare, and so treasured; they are cause for celebration. 

You deserve beautiful portraits of your family. I want to create art for your walls that shows the love you and your family share. I want you to have the people you love most surrounding you even when they're not there. I want to create portraits for you that share who your family is at this moment in time, portraits that capture today. 

Cape Cod family portraits, created with love to share the love.

Celebrate your family. Celebrate your life.

Your family portraits It's not just about the portraits that are hanging on your wall,it's about the memories made while we were creating them. Love right there on your wall, reminding you every day what wonderful things you've done with your life. You created a family. Your beautiful, one of a kind family. - Cape Cod family portraits -

about me

Hey! Sarah here, welcome to my site! I'm so glad you're here. 
When I'm not behind the camera, you can find me walking my loopy, old black lab, Lucy, on a beach somewhere, creating something, beach combing, {or beach clean-upping}, gazing adoringly at my daughter (which she is so over, now she's 17!), planning my next journey, or laughing about something with my handsome hubby, and generally just finding wonder in the world. Usually my hair's a mess and my pockets are filled with rocks.
I am happy and enthusiastic, and love so many things, besides, of course, photography; my family, the sound of waves on the shore, stargazing, traveling, quotes, splashing in puddles, kayaking, skiing, tea, being on safari, bird watching, the light after a storm, alternative photographic processes, sending mail, collecting rocks, sharing happiness... I had to stop, but did you notice that line about finding wonder? I so wasn't kidding!
I am passionate about saving our planet and all of it's many creatures, as well as empowering women and spreading happiness. 
Thanks for still reading, check out my blog for more about life here on Cape Cod. Join my happy journey in my monthly newsletter

it's your time It's finally your turn. You're looking at colleges. You're ready to take the next step in your adventure. Sometimes you just want a hug from mom, and maybe an icecream and a few more years at home... It's your time. Let's celebrate who you are today. And you you're on your way to becoming. - cape cod senior photos -

Families

Cape Cod family portraits on our beautiful beaches, are taken the hour or so before sunset, or at sunrise, June through October. That's when you'll find the perfect light for portraiture. 

Your portraits are about you and the love you share for your family. Generally our clients choose us because they're looking for some beautifully and naturally posed family photos on the beach, and different groupings within the family, just the kids, each child alone, grandma & grandpa with their grandkids, the cousins... Some of our favorite images are the more storytelling or interactive portraits of your family enjoying being together. We love when the emphasis is on each other, rather than the camera.

Seniors

You are special. You are unique. There is no one else in the world just like you, let's capture that. Let's celebrate you. 

We photograph a limited number of senior sessions over the course of a year. Most of our senior portraits are photographed on the beach June, July and August to meet fall yearbook deadlines, but maybe you'd prefer an urban setting or a garden or somewhere else... We want your personality to shine through in your portraits, who do you want to share with the world?

Beautiful Cape Cod senior portraits can be added to our family sessions, please inquire, we'd be happy to share all the details with you.
