Hi, I’m Sara Nuzum.

I moved to Hesston, KS in the fall of 2019 with my husband and son. A month later we had our second son! They are 18 months apart and definitely keep me on my toes. Once my second boy was on the way, I felt the Lord calling me to stay home to raise them. I am so grateful to be able to do that and grow my photography business!

Motherhood, babies and family 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.

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!

Why Boutique?

I want to serve you better with a full, boutique photography experience. I want our time together to be stress-free as I help you make decisions along the way, from wardrobe choices to ordering and hanging artwork, and everything in between. I am striving for a smooth, easy process, where you barely have to lift a finger! And it all results in the exact high-quality products you want, arranged perfectly on your walls for you to enjoy every day. I want you to see your portraits when you come home from work and see your 'why' right there; why you work as hard as you do. It's for your family.

More About Me

I have been shooting for twelve years, and I am constantly 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 and Photoshop. I also seem to teach myself something new with every photoshoot I do, even after all these years!
