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

Some fun facts about me:

I love starting home improvement projects but sometimes 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 own over 70 tank tops and I really don’t know how that happened, since I have always lived in a cold climate.
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, and create 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.
