I’m Sara, a lifestyle photographer based in Oakland, California and am available for sessions throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. I specialize in newborn, Fresh 48, and child and family photography with an emphasis on capturing everyday moments and connections. As a lifestyle photographer, I love creating images that show just who you and your family are and what makes you unique. As a mom of two and an early childhood educator, I know how to engage babies and children and also when to give them space to be who they are. This means you can stay relaxed, have fun, focus on play and building connections and can just be yourselves! Let me do the work and enjoy these natural moments together. These are the memories you'll want to keep!

Natural. Authentic. Emotive. Playful. Light Filled Images.


I serve all of the San Francisco Bay Area, including Alameda, San Francisco, Contra Costa, Marin, and San Mateo counties, but love to travel!
