Hi, I’m Sarah,
I started my professional photography journey in 2012 in Whangarei with a Certificate in Small Business Management before I chose my first camera and threw myself in the deep end photographing my Mum’s wedding one week later.
I have always been creative – enjoying drama, dance, photography and media studies at high school, going on to do a Diploma in Performing Arts which taught me project management, people management and the importance of creating my own work.
I have learned a LOT since then and I’ve enjoyed photographing many events, weddings, families and business owners in Whangarei and Northland over the last 6 years. Each year of business has allowed for huge growth – both in my career and my personal life and this means that my focus on what I specialize in also changes.
I think it is important to work with clients that are fun, creative, reliable and value photography and at session times that work with my lifestyle and my own family/home life. The beauty of being a self-employed freelancer is that I can make choices to make my business work for me. This includes learning to value my own well-being with self-care.
I look forward to chatting with you.
My key focus areas for 2018/2019 are:
Lifestyle Family Portraits – Capturing real people & real moments and offering heirloom prints and albums to showcase in your home and keep for generations to come.
Headshots – My goal is to capture you looking friendly, approachable & professional so you can use your images across social media and print advertising.
Personal & Business Branding & Bespoke Stock Photography – Let me capture your individuality in a relaxed and fun session, designed to bring out your unique personality and BRAND. Images are created for website design, social media and print marketing.
Weddings – Bridal Portraits, Intimate Weddings, Elopements, Garden Parties and Engagements in Northland – up to 5 hours coverage.
COMMERCIAL HEADSHOTS People hire who they know, like and trust. Are you the face of your business and brand? Keep your images up to date with fresh headshots and business branding images.read more
