Welcome to Photos with Sarah
Hi, I'm Sarah Owen and I will be your photographer, whether it's for a family photo shoot, capturing babies special moments, a big event like your wedding, or a Christmas or birthday party, I will be the one capturing your most important memories.
I adore photographs of people, the form, expressions, eyes, emotions and age all play a part in capturing that something special everybody has. Capturing a Childs innocence and purely natural personality brings a smile to my face every time, not to mention the true love you see and experience while working on a couples wedding day of dreams.
Working for other photographers and companies around the midlands for 8 years, I decided to take a giant leap and moved myself and the family to the most beautiful part of England and set up my own freelance photography business and do what I love to do, the way I like to do it. The last two years have been fantastic and meeting such inspirational people and creating what they expect and more has truly been amazing. Seeing my customers light up and even shed a tear of happiness while they view the perfectly captured images of loved ones, generations, and innocence. People age, Children grow and babies don't stay babies forever. Pushing my trigger button is pausing that special moment in you're lives that you can not keep forever.
I offer a mobile photography service for all my shoots. I started my services with a home studio just outside of Falmouth, but recently moved to St Ives. The most common problem that occurred was people couldn't always get to me. Villages and towns are so widely spread in Cornwall with public transport not being as frequent as we would all like.
So I decided to take the stress and travel off my customers and travel to them instead. Being a mum of three myself I know how hard it is to get the kids ready looking good and keeping them clean as well as getting ready yourself and then getting out of the house. ARGH...... You wonder why you even try to go out sometimes. ha ha.
Here I am, Offering home studio shoots in the comfort of your own home. I will bring professional studio lighting, backdrops props and blankets with me and we all just have fun for an hour. The set up is smaller with a professional mobile photography kit, but I can only fit 2-3 children or Family of 4 (2 adults + 2 children) If you have a larger family don't let this dishearten you as I do offer either location shoots at any location of you're choice or I travel around Cornwall from town to town setting up my bigger studio in local community centres and halls. These are as and when I book them in so please let me know if you're interested and where you are and I will slot something in.
Home visit studio shoots are available for babies 1 month to adults, and even pets. Yes, you can add Rex or just have Rex's photos taken by himself. All shoots are up to an hour. If little one doesn't fare well to it, not feeling 100%, don't worry, I'll end it early and pop back another time at no extra cost. Newborn sittings are different and are offered from birth to 14 days old and usually last 4-6 hours with feeding and changing breaks. All of my packages offer gift prints included in the price with the option of buying extras and digitals. prices are reasonable and openly available on this site.
My location shoots are very similar. You choose a location that you like, somewhere special, childhood memories, a beach, the woods, a park or a wide open spaced meadow with views to stretch. You choose and I will meet you there. Again I will bring any props if necessary. Pets can be included or photographed alone. Larger pets like horses or maybe you farm cows and would like a natural everyday portrait on the farm? Possibilities are endless.
Wedding photography is where I started 10 years ago working along side some very talented photographers until I branched out by myself. I absolutely love being involved and part of making someones special day complete with an amazing and relaxed set of images that can be looked back on over years to come. I used to love looking at my mums wedding album when I was a child, fascinated by how different they looked years before I was born. I offer a mixture of photography at weddings, you still get family sets of images if required as well as just the happy couple away from the crowd. Also adding in the relaxed reportage photography where I'll be snapping away and you won't even know I'm there. I also capture the bride getting ready as well as joining the groom and boys for the big arrival.
