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    In today's digital world, snapshots and the good old fashioned photo album have been replaced by CDs, DVDs, hard drives, and mostly, the Smart Phone filled with snapshots never to be printed and to likely be lost somewhere down the road.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

I first met Rosalie’s mama, Meg, about a year ago through her business, Macaroni Kids Pittsford-SE Rochester. If you haven’t checked them out, you should! I promise it will keep you up-to-date with all the FUN, family friendly actvities and events going on in the area! When I found out she was expecting her FOURTH daughter, I was so excited to do her newborn session! I was even more excited when I found out that one of Meg’s girls and my son, Lucas, would be in the same summer program so I was able to snuggle Rosalie some more!

Rosalie was tiny and perfect! And looks fabulous in yellow! I have been waiting for the right moment to use this amazing sunflower bonnet by Whippoorwill Nest, and apparently that was Rosalie! Oh. Those. Cheeks. I love them!

Can you believe that Miss Emma’s 6 month session tomorrow? Does this also mean that I am 3 month behind on blogging? Yes, yes it does. I can’t wait to see her and snuggle her tomorrow but for now, let’s just take in what a sweet, little 3 month old Emma was! My favorite part of 3 month sessions is all the little faces that they make! Their expressions are priceless, and change with every second!

Rochester NY Baby Photographer

It always amazes me how much change a new baby goes through in the first 3 months … and then in the next 3 months! The difference between newborn, 3 month and 6 month is HUGE! So much growth, so many new skills and abilities. It really is amazing and that is why my Step by Step (oh baby) Plan includes a 3 month step.

One thing that did NOT change with Emma, though, is her love for the Red Sox.

Stevie Lynne’s newborn session was pretty special for a few reasons. To start, all newborns are special little people, making each session special! Second, she is my cousin’s baby so it is always special when welcoming a new baby to the family! And finally, it was sort of a photography milestone for me. My very first attempt at a newborn session was 3 years earlier with Stevie Lynne’s big sister, Lily. Seeing the growth and progression I have made on this journey was really rewarding!

Sweet Stevie was just a little bit when I did her session in terms of age and size. She was not even a full 3 days old, and under 6 pounds! Gah!! I love her so much!!

I even brought along the little basket that I bought for Lily’s newborn session. It made for a great comparison between the girls.

Tommy’s 3 month session was, like all sessions, dictated by him! These babies call the shots, and I do as they say! Tommy wasn’t particularly in the mood for pictures, and that’s ok because we still were able to get some great images and capture his developing personality. He was definitely interested in my camera, or the strange sound effects I make while photographing babies! He kept his eyes on me the whole time!

One of my favorite parts of a 3 month session is capturing all the little facial expressions! I love watching babies this age try and figure out how to control their muscles, and start to assert their independence.

Tommy may not have been giving up the smiles easily at this 3 month session, but I promise I will get some out of him at this 6 month session later this month!!! SO stay tuned!!

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!

Big brother Dallon was such a good boy for the sibling shots! And boy, does Dallon know how to work the camera!!
