Baby Photography

Sessions for babies and toddlers are all about celebrating your little one's milestones, changing personality, and creating lifelong memories of their first few years. Baby photography sessions are designed to provide families with unique sessions throughout the year to create memories for the walls of their home, for baby books, and to share with family members and friends.

As a mom of three I know how hard it is to capture photos of your little ones: they're fast, you're busy, and it becomes one more thing on your growing to do list. You would love to have beautiful photographs of your little one while they are changing and growing so quickly but it can be so challenging to capture how adorable they really are on camera.

With over 7 years of full time experience and with hundreds of babies and young children having come into my studio I know how to photograph your little one at all ages and stages. I love creating beautiful photographs that highlight their unique features and show off their current milestones so that you can always remember them as they were when they were small and just learning about the world.

I understand how busy life is when you have young children and how hard it can be to carve out time for a photo session when your baby’s first year seems to be flying by. Let me take the stress and hassle out of your photography session so that you can have an enjoyable experience while making memories with your child that will last a lifetime.

Art without the wait: Your final images are professionally edited, retouched, artistically enhanced, and delivered to you via digital download one week after you make your selections from your online gallery.

Memory preservation: Complimentary prints are included in every session and delivered directly to your door to ensure you have beautiful artistic memories to display in your home.

  • Baby's Extraordinary First Year

    Celebrate Your Child's Milestones and Special Moments with my new Monthly Photo Sessions.

    If you enjoy creative, playful backdrops and would like to come into the studio for easy, yet adorable photographs of your baby, a Baby’s Extraordinary First Year Session is the right session for you.

    Each month on a set day, I offer 10 minute Moment Sessions with a unique and whimsical backdrop. These sessions are a wonderful way to mark the passing seasons and holidays and celebrate other fun childhood adventures (such as bathtime). For parents who would prefer timeless images, I also offer a neutral backdrop at the same time as my themed sessions.

    My Baby’s Extraordinary First Year clients tell me how much they love the variety, the ease of booking their session and reminders about upcoming sessions, and how fast and fun the sessions are for their little ones.

    “We have been working with Sara and her team since our first son was born in 2014. We loved his newborn session so much it led us to purchase a annual package so that we could experience family photo's throughout the year. When his little brother arrived last Fall we were thrilled to learn Sara began offering a new package for little ones. The Baby's Extraordinary First Year Sessions have been so much fun. As a busy mom of two boys under three and a business owner I am grateful that Sara takes all the work out of the sessions by offering such great sets. All I need to do is show up, and each month she captures the most amazing photo's of our baby. We make the investment in our photo's annually because we adore our family, appreciate how quickly time passes, and know this is a great way to capture such an incredible time in our lives, while creating lasting memories for our little ones.”

    "As a first time mom, I knew that I wanted photograph my little man in his first year so that I could be able to document all the little changes that would eventually fade over time in my memories. I did the newborn session with Sara and I was so happy with how the images turned out, that I was completely hooked on getting more professional photos done. I was so excited when I saw that Sara was offering the Baby's Extraordinary First Year packages, that I signed up for 6 sessions. I thought that it would give me a chance to do a session every two months, but of course that plan was blown out of the water when I saw the sets. Sara put together some of the most amazing sets that I often found myself in her studio every month because I knew that with the fantastic sets and her amazing talent, she would capture the most adorable images. As much as I had my camera out photographing my little guy in that first year, my favourite images are still the ones from the Extraordinary First year package because they were more exceptional than anything I could have captured at home."
