Sara Sandström Photography | About

With over 20 years of experience taking photographs, I specialize in creating artistic portraits of expecting mothers, newborns and babies. I’m passionate about the work I do because as a mother, I understand the importance of capturing those precious moments and memories with your little ones. I take pride in every photograph, and personally color correct and digitally enhance each one. I am confident that I will capture images that you will treasure for a lifetime.

An East Coast native, I moved to San Francisco in 2010 with my husband and our then four month old baby boy. After becoming a mother I began focusing my photography on newborns and babies. I feel privileged that I get to capture some of the happiest moments of peoples lives. My ultimate goal is to freeze time for you in images that I know will be looked at and loved for years.

Earlier in my career, I worked as Commercial Photographer and Art Instructor in NYC and Boston. Commercially, I worked with digital media, portraiture, fashion, and magazine and catalog production. As a secondary school teacher in Massachusetts, I taught courses in Digital and Fine Art media including methods of drawing, painting, photography and video production.

My work is inspired by beauty, light, shadow and wonder. I’m interested in focus and depth of field in my photography as it forces us to see the world, and each other, in a different way. I strive to capture the personality and innocence of the babies and children I photograph, and the love between family. It’s always an honor to capture precious moments in time for my clients.
