The stress-free & fun

Skip the anguish of choosing clothing, a location, and the awkwardness of making sure everyone performs for the camera... be cozy, yourself, and stress-free for your family photos!

Your family deserves more than the same photos everyone else is getting!

Family Photography for Your Real Life

It's okay to document your family just as they are!

Traditional portraits are for traditional people and you are everything BUT! If you're looking for an alternative to a stressful family portrait session in and around Charlotte, then you're in the right place!

How to have a stress-free session...

Let's stay home

Why drag the family to a location that means nothing to you all and bribe them for smiles when they are unhappy, avoiding fire ant hills, and wanting to go home?

Home is where the heart is... and the toys! If you want to go somewhere, let's make it meaningful!

How many times have you asked your child to sit still and smile? Now count how many times they have listened... haha!

Let them show off their favorite toys and play! I promise you, that is when the smiles will actually happen!

I see myself as so much more than simply a family photographer.

Hi! I'm Sabrina. (she/her)

Hi! I'm Sabrina. (she/her)

I see myself as a story teller, a family historian, judgment-free zone, and a memory catcher if you will.

I am a mom and wife who understands the craziness that comes with everyday life. I enjoy working with fun humans who value a sense of humor in parenthood, who embrace and brave their magical everyday moments in front of my camera. Telling family love stories is messy, colorful, and adventurous. Your love story didn't stop at your "I do's," that was only the beginning.

These are the good old days.

Memories are made in Saturday morning waffles, on backyard swing sets, snuggles on the couch, kitchen dance parties & all of the magical mundane moments of your everyday. The greatest gift you can give your children is documenting your family love story with YOU in the photos and I can help you do that.


You deserve to tell your family love story.

We were so fortunate to have Sabrina come to our home for a family photo session this spring. She put all of us so at ease, and she did an amazing job capturing our whole family with the most, beautiful, authentic, true-to-life photos we've ever had! I love her style and the way she picked out small moments and objects to tell our story. Sabrina seriously has a gift! I feel like we won the lottery with these pictures.
