About Sara

Motherhood and babies are so special to me. We struggled with infertility for about two years before conceiving our first son. We know God was using that time to grow our faith and trust in Him. After seeing a specialist and not discovering any issues, we did a round of timed ovulation with an injection and it worked! Our first little man was on the way.

Once my second boy was on the way, I felt the Lord calling me to stay home to raise them. So I quit my day job as a marketing director for an art gallery in Wichita, and now I am able to homeschool my kiddos and grow my photography business!

We welcomed out third sweet (although huge) boy in August of 2022. My first two were delivered via c-sections (one "emergency" and one planned) and I really wanted to try for a VBAC delivery. Despite him being 10lbs 12oz we got our successful VBAC! Women were built to do some crazy things.

My experience and hearing so many stories of other women going through infertility have motivated me to focus my business on mothers, babies and families. I know the journey can be so tough, and I want to be there for all the mamas when they are ready to celebrate milestones like pregnancy, newborns and growing families!

I have been shooting for thirteen years, and I am obsessed with learning and growing. I have a bachelor's degree in art (photography), I've taken classes through KPPA, and further educated myself with countless online training workshops, webinars and videos on photography, Photoshop, marketing and business. I also seem to teach myself something new with every photoshoot I do, even after all these years!
