My Story

About me

Hi! I’m Sarah and I am a portrait photographer based in Petone, Wellington. I live with my wonderful husband Aaron, my three gorgeous children Khya, Charlie and Beau and our two dogs Dusty and Sonny.

I am so super passionate about family photography and love to photograph children. As a parent myself I understand how life changing it is to bring a child into the world and I also understand how fast they grow! It is such a privilege to get to capture all the beautiful details that makes your child who they are! I love to create natural images of children that truly reflect their personalities.

I also have a huge passion for photographing women and particularly mothers! As mums we are often at the bottom of our priority lists and we are often missing from family photographs as we are usually the ones taking the photos. We need to exist in photographs for ourselves and for our children! It is my goal to show you the most beautiful photographs that you have ever seen of yourself, to show you how your partners, children, families and the rest of the world sees you! 

Family photographs are the most important things we own and they will be treasured by you and your family for generations to come.


I was incredibly honoured to be named NZ Family Photographer of the year 2018!

what people are saying…

A big thank you for producing amazing photos of my beautiful boys! The moments you captured are priceless and I can’t thank you enough. You are one very talented photographer and will definitely use again and of course I will highly recommend your work to family and friends.


I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the photography session of my new born baby. Your passion for photography shines in your amazing work and we have had so many fabulous comments about your photography. You have a real art for working with young children and I was amazed at your ability for settling my wee girl which wasn’t always easy. You have a true talent and eye for detail. I can’t wait to book in for more sessions in the future!

THANK YOU so much Sarah for the wonderful photos you took of my family! They are so special and we will cherish them for the years to come 🙂 You are so talented, given the limited time you had to shoot us and my nephew not in the best of moods and a brother who was totally camera shy, you did a superb job! My Aunty Carol was really impressed and will be in touch to make a booking with you! Thanks again, we are truly grateful xx

OMG Sarah you are a total magician!!! Thank you so much – they are all FANTASTIC!! Pete and I have just been having a total giggle fest at the expressions you’ve managed to catch. The little monkeys had a blast 🙂 It’s weird but looking through the images I almost cried. Thank you thank you thank you!

Hey Sarah.. Thank you SO much for today! Been waiting so long to get family photos done and I’m glad as I truly believe we had the best photographer to capture some special memories 🙂 You were fantastic with both Jahdyn and Harlem – they were both exhausted on the ride home! To be honest I was hesitant to bring the puppy but you made the experience so relaxed and enjoyable I wondered why I was ever concerned.. Thank you again – we cannot wait to see the end product! Will definitely be recommending you to others and we will be back again!


I'd love to hear from you. Please send me a message if you would like further information and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
