Welcome Hey there, thanks for stopping by! Welcome to my little corner of the internet, my place to share my voice and photography. In case you don't know me, I am Sara (that's me to the left, the one without a big white furry coat). I am a photographer based in the San Francisco Bay area, California. I LOVE my work, and you will see a bit of that sneaking in here. I also use this as a place to share other parts of my life. You will find adventures, food and little tidbits about my life with my darling husband and our two fat cats.  Please feel free to have a look around and even leave me a note. I would love to hear from you!

I love it when people bring their four legged family members along to their portrait sessions. Marian did an amazing job of organizing this portrait session at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. Not only did she coordinate her parents and 3 siblings (including a munchkin) but they managed to include two pups as well! What a rock star. I wish it wasn't such a typically cold San Francisco day for them, but I think we mad the most of it. Here is one of my favorites of Marian. I will be showing Marian the rest of her images tomorrow and will feature their picks in a few days.

I had such a  great time getting to know the Nguyen family. Their little girls are so super cute. I absolutely love the last image that they picked out, that little pucker is adorable.

Thank you for a great session! I am excited to see your selections in print!

It is always such a pleasure when I get the opportunity to document a story like this. The Oakland Animal Services is doing a yearly calendar and they needed a good image of Max. This is Max's story:

Jeannette discovered Max quite serendipitously online one Sunday afternoon in June.  She immediately gathered together her husband, Jon, and her daughter, Paris, and they all raced across the Bay to meet Max just as we were closing up the special adoption event where he was appearing . . .in fact, Max was already on his way back to the shelter when they arrived.  We called the volunteer, she returned with him, and it was love at first cuddle!  All of the shelter volunteers who'd worked with Max could not be happier about this match.  Max was a gentle giant with health and behavioral idiosyncrasies; and Jeannette, Jon, and Paris are the gentle, loving, big-dog-savvy family that he needed.

Congratulations on your forever home Max!

There are some people that come into your life and you just know that they are always going to be around. For me, Annette is one of those people. Annette has always been a big sister to me. She has been a source of love, support and friendship. I have always looked up to her and have been taken by her enthusiasm for adventure, life and love. And now, she is in love. Annette is getting married!

Annette & Alex, you two are so much fun. So genuine, funny and generous. Thank you for an amazing afternoon in wine country. To say I can't wait for your wedding is an understatement. I am over the moon excited for you!
