I am so happy our paths have crossed, because at the end of all this, you’ll have the most valuable possession you could ever hold in your hands, your memories.
If you’re pregnant, a huge congratulations! If you’re a full time mum, you’re doing so good! If you are reading this at 11pm, at work, or as you’re having a bite of that leftover sandwich, I see you. Whatever stage of life you’re in, I’m so glad you’re here.
You’re realising how quickly life is moving…
Sarah Harris Photography is not just about photography. It’s about giving you the gift of your memories.
Thinking 30 years down the track isn’t an easy thing to do, but I want you to briefly imagine. You are potentially a grandparent and your daughter or grandchild asks you to see some childhood memories.
I know for me, the photos of us running around in the garden looking for worms, caring for our bunnies, bath time, building sandcastles, piggy back rides with dad and picking fresh veggies from the garden, were the memories I felt most connected to.
Don’t you worry, you’re in the right place!
That’s where I come in.
I’m Sarah, and I’m here to photograph families who live simple lives, but treasure those day-to-day moments that pass by way too quickly. I promise to enter your life in a gentle way, feeling as though we’ve known each other for years, and leaving your kids calling me a friend. Having worked with over 350 families, my heart for documenting your family is in an honest, caring and comfortable way, so you can relax knowing that I’ll hold space for you to be exactly that; you.
My why is a little somber but none-the-less, the reason I became a photographer.
I was 3 years old when my parents divorced. I don’t remember much of us as a family.
My sister was just a baby and we never got a single photo of the four of us while we were all still together as a family.
It’s painful to think that the memories from that time are lost, the happy memories we had. I’ll never be able to see/look back on because we didn’t have any photos taken.
Fortunately my parents stayed friends while I was growing up and that is something I will forever be grateful for.
We created more memories and took candid photos here and there, but I’d give anything for a beautiful photo of us together from when I was a child.
I want each and every family to experience the joy of having photos to look back on years, and decades from now.
For you to remember those little moments that don’t feel special day-to-day, but when you see them again in a couple of years, are your most cherished keepsakes.
And for your children to know the love, dedication and time you spent raising them. Because Mumma, your job is one of the most selfless that exists!
I strongly believe that our lives are a gift and that we’ve each been given a purpose, meaning my approach to life is holistic and virtuous.
We have two golden retrievers, forest (always mistaken for boris!) and nuhla, who admittedly get a few too many smooches (although they’d never change that)
I never force anything, always bond with kids first, and wear my heart on my sleeve.
I don’t follow the crowd, I tend to walk the other way.
Love a good bath.
A beach day by myself fills my soul to the brim. I feel deeply connected to nature, get to dance like a weirdo and swim as long as I want to.
I am a classic over-sharer… ask me anything and I’ll answer honestly, and some.
My husband, Nathan of 7 years is my greatest love and i’m happiest when curled up in his arms under a blanket at the beach. he is also a photographer and we constantly find ourselves turning to each other saying ‘we have the best lives!’
