If there's one thing to know about me, it's this: I am genuinely fascinated by people. I find such beauty in human connection and the stories that people share. It's why I became a photographer: using my artistic talent to document stories of love, family, and celebration is a dream come true.
I've been fortunate enough to live in some awesome places. I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. First I went east — attending college at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio — before heading west in Colorado Springs, where I now live with my husband, Mike, and our dog, Cooper. Mike is a University of Michigan alum (Go Blue!) who is serving our country in the U.S. Air Force. I couldn't be more proud! Together we love to explore coffee shops and cook dinner (he cooks the best Italian food!).
Then there's Cooper, the adorable addition to our family. He's a sweet little shepherd/Lab rescue, who hates toys but loves to sing.
It'd be hard to introduce me without talking about the sport that helped shape me: figure skating. Skating was my first love (sorry, Mike!). I started when I was four, and five years later, discovered synchronized skating. Synchronized skating is a beautiful, elegant, and complex sport with 16-20 athletes moving in unison across the ice, creating different shapes and forms with remarkable speed and complex turns. Thirteen seasons later, I had fulfilled many lifelong dreams being a part of an extraordinary and unique sport. I loved the spotlight and having my photo taken, but I really loved the feeling I got from being a part of a team and a community.
Local coffee shops! I’m a coffee addict and like espresso to be rich, flavorful with a smooth consistency.
Cooking (favorite cuisines: seafood, Indian, Mexican), especially with my husband, Mike. He is a great cook and traveled to Italy where he learned how to make homemade pasta in Tuscany.
Working out! Cycling, swimming, lifting weights, high intensity intervals, going on long walks with my dog, Cooper, and Sunday morning yoga - I love it all and it’s a consistent routine in my life!
Finding local boutiques - window shopping, which often turns into buying something, but I’ve become more selective over the years with what I actually buy and keep.
Summertime at the pool! I could spend hours sun tanning and jumping in and out of the pool to cool off.
Calling my closet friends and chatting with them for hours. We don’t need anything super important to talk about, we just like catching up and reminiscing.
Believe me, I get it: there's so much about booking a photo session that can feel daunting. From finding the right person to capture your story to feeling awkward in front of the camera, there's a lot to think about! But I'm here to make it easy. I come from Wisconsin, where we value hard work, connection, and trust. I'll work hard for you — not only in beautifully documenting your story, but also in making sure that you have a great experience.
We'll spend time getting to know each other before your shoot so we arrive on site feeling like old friends. I'll come armed with prompts and strategies to make you feel so comfortable, you'll forget I'm there! And, I'll cut back on any post-shoot anxieties with a guaranteed photo preview within 24-48 hours after your shoot.
Sarah is an incredible photographer! My fiancé and I are not very comfortable behind a camera, but Sarah made our engagement photos such an enjoyable and fun experience with her great prompts and easygoing personality. She is very responsive and so great to work with. Our pictures came out so beautifully and will serve as a snapshot of our love for years to come. I highly recommend Sarah to anyone who wants their love, family, or other relationships captured in a genuine and gorgeous way.
Sarah is amazing. She was so helpful in figuring out exactly what my husband and I needed within our tight budget. She went above and beyond to personalize everything and really got to know who we were as a couple. Her skills of finding the most flattering poses naturally, and being able to just capture moments without cue, are the best I’ve seen! I want to get married over and over again just so I can use her as my photographer.

Sarah did an amazing job on our engagement photos! She took the time to coordinate with my (now) fiancé to plan a proposal shoot while we were on vacation in Colorado. Rain delayed our photoshoot and Sarah was more than willing to reschedule and accommodate our needs. I'm sure she knew how important this was to my fiancé and she made it happen. She was so kind and willing to work with us even though neither of us are super comfortable in front of a camera. Thank you!!!

Can’t say enough good things about Sarah! Neither of us had gotten professional photos taken before and she made the entire process fun and comfortable. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a Colorado photographer!

Sarah was so amazing! She made us feel so comfortable and was great at getting pictures of our pup! The timeless look of her photos will keep us coming back for many more sessions! We received our photos so quickly after our session that we were able to get them out to friends and family right away. Thank you Sarah!

Sarah was amazing!! She was so patient and flexible throughout the entire process of booking to executing the photo session. She even sent us sneak peeks the night of! Her turn around time was so quick and we had the finished pictures within a week! She is so sweet and I truly enjoyed working with her and will certainly use her again! 🙂

Sarah was amazing to work with at our recent family photo shoot at Garden of the Gods. Shooting 6 adults and two littles is not easy....and she crushed it! Highly highly recommend if you are local or even traveling/visiting the Denver/Colorado springs area. She’s the sweetest and we can’t wait to work with her in the future.

We had such a blast working with Sarah! My fiancé and I were in Colorado for a short trip and were so grateful that we were able to meet up with Sarah for a photo session. We were hesitant to do any photos after getting engaged because we were afraid of looking too posed or unnatural, but Sarah made the whole experience SUPER fun! Everyone who sees our photos comments on how natural, fun, and "like us" they look. Sarah's an insanely talented artist, a true professional, and just a joy to be around. Thank you, Sarah!!!

Truly enjoyed working with Sarah for our vacation photoshoot. It was not easy shooting 3 families (6 kids under 8)with a wardrobe change but she did it flawlessly and the result was AMAZING!

Sarah did a fantastic job with our family photos! She listened to what it was I was looking for, was happy to accommodate any crazy ideas we had and had great instruction on what next. I am glad to have come across her Facebook page and would recommend her to anybody looking for great photos, at a reasonable price! Thanks Sarah for the great photos, and how quickly you got them back to us!
