Sarah Born Photography bio picture
  • WELCOME!

    Life, it happens and it happens fast. In the hustle and bustle it is easy to forget, or to put off, the "small things" like photographing your family. But it is so important to preserve the memories of your life as it is today because you never know what it will be tomorrow.

    As a child growing up in Central Square, New York (about 20 miles north of Syracuse), I loved looking through photo albums - my parents' wedding album with the carved wood cover, the albums of me and my brothers as babies that were nothing more than snapshots put on those sticky pages with the plastic overlay. They were glimpses of what my family was, and they preserved special events (my first birthday and holidays), everyday life (me next to a snowman in April or covered from head-to-toe in a mud puddle), and loved ones no longer with us. I still have many of those photographs committed to memory.

    In today's digital world, snapshots and the good old fashioned photo album have been replaced by CDs, DVDs, hard drives, and mostly, the Smart Phone filled with snapshots never to be printed and to likely be lost somewhere down the road.

    My goal, my hope, is to encourage YOU to make a commitment to documenting and preserving you and your family as it is today! Whether that be by taking photographs with anything besides your cell phone, having those photographs printed by a lab and put into an album you can hold, making a photobook that will last a lifetime, or by hiring a professional photographer, whether it is me or someone else, to preserve your family as it is today! I promise that you will not regret the time spent and investment made to create memories for you, your children, your grandchildren and beyond to look back on and reminisce.

    And so, I welcome you to explore my site and enjoy the memories captured for my clients and their families. And the picture to the left? That is my little family captured in the moment by the great Deanna Wallace of Visually Deelicious! She is amazing, check her out in my Friends tab!

When I photographed Dallon’s First Birthday session last year, I also got to photograph a big announcement – Dallon was going to be a big BROTHER! They came prepared with matching baseball tees to announce the upcoming arrival of their newest player!

Well, HE is here and he is oh so handsome! Cameron is seriously perfect. He was pretty alert at the beginning so were able to get some gorgeous images of him awake.

In fact, he wasn’t a huge fan of sleep! Usually, when I put non-sleepy babies in some nice warm and snuggly props, they fall into a deep sleep. Not Mr. Cam-Man. BUT I was able to snap a few images before he woke up!

Just baby images are usually some of my favorite. Especially a perfectly squishy guy like Cam.

It was only appropriate to have Cameron have a matching baseball tee that fit him in his newborn stage. I immediately knew who was the woman for the job – Lynn from The Knitting Bitty! And, as usual, she didn’t disappoint!

Kensi may be the most alert and expressive newborn to date. It was like she was a 3 month old, not a newborn! And so, I continued my new mantra of Embrace the Awake, and the results are so sweet with all of the awake shots AND eye contact! Kensi is also one of the most beautiful newborns, with perfect little features! I LOVED snuggling her! She had just come home from church when I arrived, so I decided to keep her in her Sunday best for some images. I know, a clothed newborn!? But she matched my backdrop perfectly so it was meant to be!

Kensi’s nursery is a Minnie Mouse theme, and her mama had the sweetest Minnie Mouse outfit! I think Kensi loved it (look at that smile), and is probably the cutest Minnie ever!

Oh her little smiles! And with as expressive as Kensi is, I am willing to bet they are real smiles!!

Seeing Kensi came home Easter weekend, we did a few bunny shots with my favorite bonnet by one of my favorite prop masters, The Knitting Bitty.

Kensi can not only rock hot pink, but blue as well! I looooooooooooooove how this set came out. Seriously, she is just gorgeous! And are her flakey little feet not to die for?! Such a sweet detail on the itty bitties!

I am not kidding when I tell you that I told Hudson’s mommy and daddy at least 200 times that Hudson is the most handsome newborn ever! Seriously, he is gorgeous! I was contacted several months before Hudson’s due date by his mama’s brother who wanted to purchase a gift certificate for his sister. All together now, AWWWWWWWWWW. I cannot think of a better gift to give a loved one or friend expecting a new baby. Hudson was a fantastic snuggler, and I could have snuggled him all day! He had a period of awake, and he was the first baby where I decided to just embrace the awake for a little while and I am SO glad I did. I love how the images came out, and they are some of my favorite!

Hudson was a surprise gender, and the nursery is decorated in Peter Rabbit. Pretty much every piece of furniture in his nursery was handmade by his daddy, Zeb. And it is gorgeous. I absolutely love how the Peter Rabbit setup came out. Is he not the most handsome newborn ever?

His daddy is also a fellow horseman, and so we were able to incorporate his cowboy hat and boots in a spur of the moment setup! So glad we did because what could be better than a newborn in his daddy’s cowboy hat?

Oh Nicholas. How I love you and your cute little face! I mean, seriously, could this guy be any cuter? I love my Step by Step (oh baby) Plan babies, and I love every session for a different reason. 3 months. A lot of people say, why 3 months? They still aren’t doing much. But they are! 3 month olds social smile like crazy! And have SO many different facial expressions! And in those short 3 months since birth, so much has changed in the way they look. I love 3 month sessions because it is such a fun time in your baby’s developing personality! And Nicholas has the BEST expressions!

Nicholas, along with his mommy and daddy, were just moving into their brand new home when we did his 3 month session so we took advantage of it and the gorgeous light spilling in to get some images of Nicholas’ nursery as well! And a quick wardrobe change was the perfect opportunity to sneak in some sweet moments with his mama!

I was beyond thrilled when I got the email from Emma’s daddy inquiring about a newborn session. I have been secretly waiting for it for some time now. I have known Jim for years, and don’t know a person more deserving of a beautiful, happy family. I was even more excited that he and his wife Sara decided to do my Step by Step (oh baby) Plan for Emma! Emma gave me some lovely gifts right from the start – sweet smiles before I was quite ready (but had to catch them) and the biggest baby poop, all over me, ever! Sweet baby girl! Luckily, I had a change of clothes with me! Back to those sweet smiles I got from Emma as soon as I set her down on my beanbag!

Emma’s nursery is lavender and grey, one of my favorite color combos so we kept with that theme throughout her session.

Emma’s daddy is a HUGE Red Sox fan, and asked that I incorporate one of his baseballs into the session. I think Emma approves of Daddy’s team!
