Hi! Thanks for stopping by. I’m Sarah, the face behind Sarah Peterson Photography…
I’m an on-location, natural light photographer. My loving husband currently serves in the military and we are in the midst of moving from New England to Naples, Italy! EEP! We have two really cute kids (5yr & 4yr) and a sweet old Labrador.
I started my photography journey in 16 years ago taking my first photography class in college. I used a classic Pentax 35mm film camera. Developed my own film in a dark room and all! It was a fun introduction! In 2003, I graduated with a Bachelors of Arts Degree and later begin a successful career in the pharmaceutical industry. As a Speciality Sales Consultant, I traveled all of the time – which I loved! Meeting office staff, physicians, nurses, clinicians, directors and having in-depth discussions about disease and medicine was intriguing and rewarding. In 2011, my first baby was born! I decided to hang up the suit for awhile and focus on my little family. I knew that I didn’t want to travel as much I as I have been especially since my husband already deploys for LONG periods of time and our parents live so far from us. The landscape of the pharmaceutical industry was changing drastically – it was a perfect time to embrace the change and focus on my little family.
After the birth of my daughter, I really wanted to take breath-taking photos of her. I already had the photography bug bite me back in 2000 during my first photography class. But this was a different feeling. I was HOOKED on composition, lighting, exposure, posing, etc. I bought my first entry-level DSLR camera. I began photographing my friends’ babies, then friends of friends’ newborn babies…..and that’s when it clicked. My PASSION. I wanted THIS to be my career!
With years of studying, practicing, taking workshops and love for photography, I took the leap to become a professional photographer. Sarah Peterson Photography was born!
The blog features lots of good stuff. Images of my little sweet kids to my amazing clients. You can also see more stuff like this on my Facebook page and my instagram too! I love coffee with CREAM. I love cheese. I love walks. I struggle with running but I still try. I love my family.
I love babyhood. I love the special bonds of family. I love listening to YOUR story.
Nothing compares to the feeling of giving a parent the memory of their precious baby. Every baby detail: from their perfect flaky skin to the little hairs on their ears, they will never be this tiny again. I’m blessed to capture all of this – for you.
I would be honored to share your family’s story through my lens once we get settled in our new location. Please contact me for more information!
