  • So, you're looking for a photographer? I want to help you decide if you have come to the right place. Not every photographer is going to be the perfect fit for you in style or personality. Finding the right fit could mean the difference between family photos you dream of and those fit to be featured on Awkward Family Photos. That may be a little extreme, but if you are not comfortable with your photographer, it will be difficult to be comfortable in front of their camera.

    My number one goal in every session is to capture the person, the relationship, the love in front of my camera as it is in every day life. No fake smiles here, guys. And, we are not always going to look at the camera. If there is more than one in front of the camera, I want you to interact. To snuggle (if you pick me, you will learn my love of the word). If there is only one in front of my camera, well, I have a thing for eyelashes and other details. So, if your vision is a gallery of perfect smiles all looking at that camera, I am not the right fit for you. And that's ok! Shoot me an email and I will help you find your perfect photographer!

    I specialize in newborn, baby, child and family photography. If you asked me to pick a favorite, it would be different every day! I love the freshness and capturing the tiny details that change so quickly of a newborn. I love the joyful hesitance of a baby. I love the innocence and wonder of a child. And I love the unbreakable bond and undeniable love of a family. And I love to make all of these things come to life in my images.

    What is a session with Sarah Born Photography like? Well, my number one goal is that my clients, especially dads and older kids, walk away thinking, "Man, that was fun!" We will laugh. We will play. If we are outside, we will probably get dirty. And, we will have fun.

    Take a peek around, and if you have ANY questions, shoot me an email! See you soon!

Ada’s newborn session last Fall was not one of my normal session. Usually, I drive around the Greater Rochester area to photograph my clients, and sometimes to the Syracuse area because I have so many friends and family there. But for Ada’s session, I took the 10 hour drive to Northern North Carolina! Ada’s mama is a fabulous photographer in Eden, NC, Ashley Latham Photography. I connected with Ashley not too long after I decided to put my name out there as a photographer when my best friend, who lives in NC, met Ashley through the pre-school their kids go to. Ashley was sweet enough to give this newbie at the time business and technical pointers, and we became fast friends! So, when I found out Ashley was pregnant, and I really owed my bestie a visit, I offered to travel down for her newborn session!! It was a win-win – I got a little weekend away by myself, see and spend time with my bestie, meet Ashley, and snuggle a squishy babe!!! What, I ask, could be better?!

And squishy she is … meet Ada!

Last Fall, I met the sweetest family when I went to their home to capture the newest member’s newborn photos! Baby Bryce was just the most handsome little man, and already SO loved when I met him! His mama (I love her) is perhaps the most amazing decorator ever. And she had lots of ideas for me to work with and really push myself out of my comfort zone!

Mr. Bryce decided to have an awake period during his session. This past year, I have been working on embracing the awake and letting the baby lead in posing. It gives me less stress when I have a baby that just doesn’t want to sleep, and that makes baby more relaxed too. Plus, I am loving the wide eyed images of these brand new little humans!

Of course, we had to include the brand new big sisters! They are so good with their baby brother, and are just gorgeous!

We also had a chance to go outside quickly for some outdoor Fall family pictures! It was a mostly cloudy day, but as we were going out the sun started to peek through at the perfect time!

Oh this sweet little bub. I photographed Troy’s big sister as a newborn, so I was super excited to meet the new addition. I love that I am starting to get the new siblings of my previous newborns! Troy. Isn’t that such a great name? It is one you don’t hear often, and I just love it. And just look how perfect this little guy is!

Recently, I have had a lot of newborns who spend a good bit of the session awake. I have been trying to embrace that quiet awake time, and the results are some of my favorites from each session. Especially when I am able to capture eye contact.

But sleepy is what we strive for so that we can get those sweet poses. And when you add in a little sleep cap by one of my favorite vendors, Just Hatched Designs, it is sweetness overload!

When I get a little free time to myself, which, let’s be honest, doesn’t happen often, I like to stroll through antique stores in search of the perfect something. I usually don’t know what exactly I am looking for when I go in, but I know it when I see it! This bucket is one of those things! And it is like it was meant to put a newborn in!!

Of course, the session wouldn’t be complete without including the new big sister, Olivia. You never know what you are going to get with toddler siblings, we all know toddlers have minds of their own, but Olivia was SO good! And loves her new brother!!

This sweet family of four has so much to smile about!! Welcome Troy, you are so LOVED!!

Well, Nicholas has already celebrated his first birthday but I still didn’t want to miss out on sharing some of my favorite images from his 9 month session at the end of summer. We had some scheduling conflicts but it was all for the best because when we finally had his session, the weather was gorgeous! Nicholas started out a bit more serious than usual, as many 9 month olds do. They are just starting to figure out strangers and are a bit cautious around unfamiliar faces. But I eventually got some trademark Nicholas Smiles. Seriously, this guy is the sweetest!

Can I tell you that I was SO excited when I got the message asking about booking a newborn session from Remy’s mama? Like SUPER excited. I went to middle and high school with Remy’s mama, Courtney. So many of my favorite memories include her, so when she booked a Step by Step (oh baby) Plan for Remy, I couldn’t wait to start capturing memories for her and her family!

Remy. Gah. I can’t even handle it. His name. His cuteness. His precious facial expressions. As a newborn.

Rochester NY Newborn Photographer

See what I mean? I can’t even handle it. Another thing I LOVE about Courtney is she pays attention to my photography business, and just decided to order a whole lotta fabulousness from one of my FAVORITE vendors, the Knitting Bitty!! And Remy rocked every single outfit!

I am currently, as we speak, working on editing Remy’s 3 month session. Just WAIT til you see how much he has changed, and though it does not seem possible, Remy has gotten cuter!!!
