Who is your photographer?

I’m a country girl at heart, who loves being organized, I have 3 little boys who can’t help but make me frazzled but who just make me laugh! I have a husband (Scotty) who loves hunting, fishing and motorbikes -almost as much as he loves his family. I am known for being super organised, and straight up while also down to earth and friendly. I crave deep and meaningful chats. When I found photography, I found the thing I will do until I can no longer move, it is my calling :-)

My Mission

I aim to make your session as easy as possible for you, and to deliver on what I say I will do, and a little more. I want you to want to come back to me again.


Natural, Fresh, Beautiful.

Natural: You look like yourselves. Your smiles are real. Your photos show how you feel about each other.

Fresh: I aim for light to enhance your image in a beautiful way, your images will clean and clear and you will be the star. Nothing else will compete with you in your photos.

Beautiful: Your photos will be so beautiful you can’t help but frame them and put them on the wall. The colours are beautiful, you look beautiful, and they make your wall look beautiful.

I am in the process of building a studio at my home between Edgecumbe and Matata. In the meantime, I have a portable studio in my home where we have everything we need for your portrait session. Whether it is pregnancy, newborn or family portraits, we can do in studio or shoot at the location of your choice. I can travel for your portrait session to anywhere in the Whakatane District.


"Sarah took some beautiful photos of our family. She was lovely to deal with and so easy to talk to. I love her natural style and would recommend her to others. We will definitely use Sarah again!" - Lawrence family.
