because pictures don't have to be stiff!
Time slips away from us and our little ones grow up so fast! We're so busy embracing the next event we never have time to slow down and just enjoy the moment. That's what I vision by offering family sessions to Philadelphia locals and the surrounding Delaware Valley.
As a mom to two boys on the spectrum, I take special interest in ensuring my families know working with me is judgment free. I get it—I'm a mama, too! We'll work together to get the photos you want while embracing whatever moments comes from the experience.

I'm the artist behind SGW Photography—the home for my love of photography turned into a full-time profession. I'm ecstatic that you're here to consider me for potentially capturing your wedding!
I wrote this site with the hope that I can speak to you directly through my words and my work since, as an introvert, words can fail me in person. This way, you have a better idea about me and if I'm the photographer for you. My whole purpose is creating stories through imagery and I'd love to be able to work with you in doing just that.

02. HOW MANY PHOTOS ARE TYPICALLY INCLUDED AND CAN WE PRINT THE PHOTOS OURSELVES?
I would describe my style as blending photojournalism with fine art to create a colorful and rich story filled of emotion. I love capturing genuine connections, sweet moments, and funny outtakes. Memories turned art.
03. WHAT’S YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY?
Galleries are usually delivered within 2 to 3 weeks.
06. HOW LONG DO YOU TAKE TO DELIVER THE PHOTOS?
Yep, I can relate! A photographer afraid to take pictures? That's me! Even when I'm posed I feel awkward. It's just how I am. Taking pictures comes naturally for some, yet for us, its a tornado. But hey, we don't have to be super models to take beautiful portraits. I've learned the best portraits are the ones where we're just being ourselves. Memories and moments are what I'm here for. Guiding you until you can find a groove that works for you. It's all about me working with you until we nail that perfect shot.
