With Prices + The Booking Process
“In portraiture, you have so much leeway, so much latitude.
You can be conceptual. You can be abstract. You can tell a story. You can be journalistic if you want.
You have so many options available in portraiture, and you're not confined to one idea.”
Previous Adventures. We like to have fun.
Sessions include an online gallery in 'Collections' where you will download and share your images that will be stored for up to 1 year.
You can order prints directly from within your gallery or download them to use your own print method.
You have the copyright via contract for the personal use of your images.
A deposit of 50% is due before your shoot, and full price is due before receiving images.
Terms apply for rescheduling & cancellations.

Proposals & Engagement
I'm an expert in sneakiness. Best before sunset during Golden Hour.
Located at the Lakeland studio outdoors or an inside set.
Baby Shower & Sprinkle
I spent 15 years living in the deep south with my sorority sisters constantly having baby showers and sprinkles, and y'all, these are my faves.
+ These are chic, elegant photos in studio with beautiful lighting. [A refreshing alternative to a glowing field in a flowing dress.] Sarah can provide a black bodycon dress or chic body suit. Another beautiful look faded jeans with a white tank top and big hair. Check out my Instagram and Pinterest board for the styles I love. Let's bring your vision to life!
+ The studio space is shared with Live Love Baby Ultrasound Studio in Lakeland!
After your 3D, 4D, 5D ultrasound with Rachel in our studio, change for an effortless maternity photo shoot in the room just next door after you've gotten a sneak peak of baby's face and you've got that momma glow!
+ Sarah is there for the duration of your birth + special moments after, approximately 2 hours postpartum.
+ She will be on call 24/7 waiting for your "go signal" starting at your 37th week of pregnancy.
+ Home birth or hospital? Wherever your delivery takes you, she will be there.
+ During your miracle labor, she'll capture the emotions, support and triumphs as your doctor, nurse, midwife or doula permit in advance.
+ The full package price is due upon booking. This guarantees Sarah can be on call for you and not book other sessions that can't be easily rescheduled around your due date.
+ She does not have a backup shooter at this time, but also does not take sick days and will never miss a birth unless she's on her death bed. If this happens [unlikely] you'll be refunded for your full investment and be gifted a complimentary newborn shoot.
+ You see your images first! Sarah will only post what you permit. We can keep your online gallery password protected if you'd like.
+ Included are several video snapshots placed with licensed music and an editorially crafted blog.
+ The duration of the shoot is determined by the bambino's willingness to snooze or cooperate. If they're in a deep sleep or feeling up to it, we can do several outfit changes over the course of an hour. If you want something quick, we can do one outfit in 15 minutes! We will adjust the shoot duration as needed.
+ The shared studio space is in Lakeland where Sarah partners with Live Love Baby Ultrasound Studio!
+ Parents, please plan to help calm baby and interact if they're awake to bring out all their facial expressions!
+ You're welcome to bring a special outfit, and I can help you plan a specific theme in advance.
+ Sarah makes edits to baby blemishes if requested.
+ Please be sure baby's outfit is ironed in advance.

"Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited,
and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man."
What's the booking process?
I'm honored that you're considering me as your photographer!
First, we'll talk about what you want to capture and how to make it happen.
A deposit for half the session price is made to reserve your session date.
Full session price is due for you to receive session images.
[Portrait, minor, and/or cancellation contract(s) to be signed]
We can of course reschedule your shoot!
After the Shoot
Turnaround time for the full photo package depends on your session type.
For instance, families, I can have your casual shots to you in a few days if it's not during a busy season, such as fall.
Weddings, I will have sneak peaks to you in a few days, and the first draft of your photo collection will be delivered in 3 weeks.
PEOPLE PLEASER + PHOTOGRAPHY OBSESSION...
This combo means after every shoot you'll be inundated with beautiful, high-resolution, downloadable photos in the "Collections" tab quickly with the hope that they make you smile. I love [and live] to do these two things.
