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!

When I am out shooting I am always looking for details. It is obvious that Mom and Dad are probably going to want the standard images of the whole family looking at the camera, and those are fun to attempt to get when dealing with toddlers. But the images that I love to get are those little details. The way she peeks over the top of the fence to see what is on the other side. The way she stands on her tip-tip-tippy toes to get just a little bit higher. The little flower that just had to be picked. These are the images that tell the story of who these kiddos are at this moment, a fleeting moment at that.

A super fun session at UC Berkeley, with Susie and her family. Michael came along and I thought I would feature one of my favorites from his collection. I LOVE this shot. As we were wondering around we saw these steps and the beautiful lines that they created. Susie looks so sweet sitting there. Such a great shot to commemorate her time at UC Berkeley.

Michael Kawano:

Wow! I'm thrilled to make your post and very happy you liked my shot. This was actually my favorite of mine from the day as well. Great minds (and eyes) think alike. :). Can't wait to get out with you again! You're the best, Sara!

The sibling love it almost to cute to handle. These two were so much fun and so sweet as we wondered around the Tilden Botanical Gardens. It is never easy to wrangle kiddos at this age, but they where so much fun and the gardens were a perfect backdrop!

Danita, thank you so much for setting this session up. I hope you like your sneak peek image! I am looking forward to showing the rest of your images to you!

Finding new locations is always fun. It is even more fun when said new location is only 7 minutes from my house. Elizabeth Gamble Gardens is just a few minutes away and it is a little gem. There are lots of fun nooks and crannies to play in and enough shade to make me happy at just about any time of the day. Yippy! It only took me 9 months to finally go and shoot there.

This is one of my favorite shots from Victoria's recent family portrait session. I asked them to get together for a family shot and this is what their little munchkin came up with. So so so much better than what I would have asked for. This is just one of the many reasons why kids are great.

Victoria thank you for coming to my side of the Bay and exploring the gardens with me. Your kiddos are awesome, even with the crazy gremlin voice!

I love this image for so many reasons. The emotional connection is so sweet, you can just feel the comfort that this kiddo takes in being in her mams arms.

Anne, thank you so much for sharing the afternoon with me. Your girls are so sweet and beautiful. I am looking forward to showing you the rest!
