I'm Sarah. It's no secret that I love to photograph kids! With every new family that walks into my studio, I am giddy with excitement. I can't get enough of kids, no matter what age or stage they are at. I love getting to know the families and kids I shoot, seeing them come back year after year and watching them grow and become these amazing little people with big personalities that shine when the camera comes out. I have had the incredible privilege of capturing insane moments of love, laughter and all that is in between.
As a student at Columbia College Chicago, working towards my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography, most professors directed me to stay away from children's photography since it is viewed as being very difficult, if not impossible, to photograph children. I had to prove them all wrong, I had to take the challenge. Thankfully, I had one professor in my senior year, who reassured me to keep doing what I love.
So for the past 12 years, that is all I have done! I have worked at numerous portrait studios around the Chicagoland area and was the Head Photographer & Manager at Classic Kids in Lincoln Park, before deciding I was ready to fulfill my dream of running my own photography studio, on my favorite street! Wildwood Photography combines my love of photography and kids and when you walk in, I want you to feel right at home!
Do what you love. Love what you do.
