Hello!  I’m Sara, a Chicago area family photographer who lives in Palatine, IL with my husband, five year old son, and two year old son.

Some fun facts about me:

I love starting home improvement projects but don’t love finishing them.
I’ve written a fairly popular home improvement blog since 2009. Check it out here.
I like to sleep in, but can’t really seem to do it anymore.
I love watching movies but have a bad habit of talking during them.
I am obsessed with lip balms and have about 20 at any given time.
I am sort of shy, but also the loudest person in the room. I don’t get it, either.
I can be a drama queen, which I think translates into my photos.

I started my business in the summer of 2014 after a move to Minnesota from Wisconsin for my husband’s job opportunity.  After only a short year in Minnesota, my husband’s job brought us to the Northwest Chicago suburbs!  It has been a lot of work, but very rewarding to see people sharing my work and loving their photos. I am always looking for creative ways to use light, composition, and background to make truly beautiful images.  My goal is to capture the spirit of your family with a mixture of candid and posed images you will treasure for a lifetime.  Dramatic, Timeless, and Beautiful. Those are the three words I hope my clients will use to describe my work. I can’t wait to meet you!

I am primarily an outdoor, natural light photographer…but I also love doing relaxed lifestyle sessions in your home.
