hello I’m Sarah

I am a Wedding, Portrait, Newborn, Family, Headshot, and Senior photographer based in Jacksonville, Florida, but available to travel worldwide. I am also an award-winning destination wedding photographer!

to describe me in one word, it’s

THANKFUL

I think I’ve always been the one with a camera. Whether it was with my family or friends, I’ve always tried to capture happy moments when they happened! It was about eight years ago that I realized I wanted better equipment and wanted to learn the true art of editing pictures to bring the best out of every shot. I can remember the moment I realized what professional pictures can mean to people. There was a young lady I loved named Catie, She was 15 years old and was battling cancer. Well, Catie and I had an impromptu photo shoot one night in my backyard.

A few months later, Catie lost her battle with cancer. Those pictures meant so much to me and to her family. I knew I had to keep furthering my career in photography and continue to give back to families facing such difficult situations.

My favorite part of being a photographer is giving people a priceless photo to document how great life truly is, and now you understand my why.  Life is short, and I plan to make the most of it. I would say my favorite statement is on a big canvas in my home, “It’s not happy people who are thankful, it’s thankful people are happy.” So, to describe me in one word, it’s thankful. I am always happy, and do my best to make every photo session fun! (I am also a self-proclaimed comedian, so I can get pretty much anyone to laugh during my sessions!). Please ask my clients, I will go above and beyond to make sure that you are happy with your pictures! I am proud to say that I was voted the Bold City Best Photographer in Jacksonville 2019 and 2020! I was also voted the Folio Weekly Best Wedding Photographer in 2019. I definitealy have to thank my amazing clients for that honor!

I am also a firm believer in giving back to my community. I do many sessions for free for children with cancer, children with disabilities and I love to give back to the military to thank them for the sacrifices they make for me and this great country!
