SGWPHOTO

You need portraits. You're too busy to do it yourselves or you' want something beyond your standard cell-phone shot. You want something professional to show off and hang in your home or keep in an album. It doesn't matter the occasion, getting portraits done can be for any reason or purpose. From updating your family portraits to 'just because' portraits. Whatever the reason, I'm here to show your best you.

What's lifestyle? It's a blend of both documentary and posed looks. My goal as a photographer is getting you comfortable with prompts and cues that makes you genuinely laugh, smile, and be absolutely in love while still getting those portraits, as well.

I'm a firm believer in moments over poses and feel a better connection in photographs when you can feel and see it. My approach is entirely lifestyle with a touch of editorial. I capture my subjects by having them engage with their environment or those with them so that their smiles and laughter are completely genuine. The idea is to make you comfortable in front of my camera because I know how nerve-wracking it can be to take photos of yourself, especially if it's your first time!

I tell the story of you. I capture your most honest and true selves because I find that to be more beautiful than your typical 'cheese' smile.

Process

tell me about the

One.

The first step is always going to be you reaching out to me. You like what you see and my photos really speak to you. You reach out and we set a time to chat over the phone or just go back and forth through email. You tell me about what you want, I tell you what I can offer, and then we discuss about which is better Lord of the Rings or Star Wars.

get in touch and book a call

Two.

You want to book me! Woohoo, the best decision you can ever make! To make it official, a 25% retainer is collected to hold your date along with a a signed contract. All of this is done online through the client hub where you'll have access to everything. Easy, right?

Book your portrait session

Three.

A day or so later, if you have not already done so, you fill out a questionnaire discussing your ideas for the session, then we schedule a time to talk further and flesh out the details. We'll go over everything from wardrobe to location choices and maybe a few tips and reassurance from me so you're not nervous!

planning your session like a champ

Four.

The day arrives and we all meet up at the agreed upon location to begin your photo session. I can't promise you it won't be awkward because, like I explained, I'm an introverted nerd (and heck, maybe you are too!) So after we do our hellos, its off to the fun part—pictures! I'll guide you, give prompts, pose you if necessary, but mostly let you be yourself and whatever makes YOU feel comfortable. My aim is to capture you as you are with as little intervention by me as possible. It's easy, trust me.

Strike a pose it's session day!

Five.

After about one or two weeks later you'll receive a email with a link to your private online gallery. You will be able to share, download, and just admire how bad ass looking you look. I'll of course throw a few previews within 24 hours after the day of your session so the wait isn't too painful! I offer a wide range of products from albums to prints that you can order directly through your gallery. 

call me amazon because I'm delivering!

Working with Sabrina was such a great experience. She was flexible and understanding when our plans changed suddenly. Our photoshoot was so easy and comfortable. The end product was just what we needed. We've gotten so many compliments on the quality of the photos. I can't wait to work with her again!

"She was super great at getting us out of our comfort zone as we are both very timid when taking photos. She knew exactly where to go for the perfect backdrops around the city and she even walked miles and miles (she was even pregnant) to get the perfect photo. Every single one of our photos came out beautiful and I wish we could have booked her for our wedding, only if we weren't so far away. She is absolutely amazing!!!."
