I know how it feels to be instantly filled with an incomprehensible joy (and a healthy dose of fear!) when you first see those two pink lines.
I know how exciting it is to buy that first adorable outfit!
I know how each little movement can fill you with a sense of awe and wonder. 

To feel special, to be pampered, to get your hair and makeup done, to put on a stunning gown, and to memorialize this special time forever.
To have the most epic portrait shoot ever that showcases the love for your child and the beauty that is your growing body.
To own heirloom albums and works of art adorning your walls that will be loved for generations and will serve as precious family heirlooms.

momma, I am so excited for you, and I want you to know that I’ve been there! 

Momma, I see you. And I want you to know that no matter how you’re feeling in this moment, You. Are. Beautiful. Your body is amazing, it is powerful, and it is creating something miraculous! 

That’s why I’ve created my Maternity Experience because it is so important to not let this time slip away without photographing it in all it’s beauty! 

After all, You Deserve:

And I know what it’s like to have a love-hate relationship with your changing body. How you can’t wait for your belly to look like it’s carrying a life rather than an extra box of donuts! How one day you feel proud, sexy, and beautiful and the next you feel fat, bloated, and uncomfortable

There's nothing comparable to the joy and awe you feel when your little one enters the world. Suddenly there seems to be nothing more exciting than just staring at their little nose, playing with their fingers and toes, and listening to the sweet little noises they make when they sleep. 


Congratulations on your growing family!

Time seems to pass by at exponential rates during the first few months of your baby's life, so it is all the more important to memorialize this time as a family!
 I highly recommend getting a lifestyle shoot with your little one during their first month (the sooner the better to avoid that annoying baby acne!) During a lifestyle newborn shoot, I will meet you at your home and photograph this new stage of life with all the cuddles and kisses that accompany it! The shoot is a combination of posed images as well as relaxed, candid images of you together.   


"Mary Sarah was so great to work with and the pictures turned out perfect! She was so patient when we had a fussy little boy and made our nursery, bedroom and living room into a great backdrop! She got a great combination of baby and family pictures all in one photo shoot, she was even able to include our intruding puppy in some great shots. We will definitely be using her for future photos and highly recommend her!"

Ben & Kelly

"Our newborn lifestyle shoot was a great experience! Mary Sarah worked so well with our newborn girl and small family to get perfect shots for us! She made us feel relaxed and at ease throughout our session and even took extra time to get specific poses we requested. We will cherish these pictures forever! We definitely recommend using Mary Sarah!"

Rob & Katie

"Mary Sarah took photos of our newborn baby and her photos were stunning. We wanted photos that would capture her natural, wrinkly, tiny, newborn goodness and each photo did exactly that.

 Mary Sarah made sure that each element was perfect and really took her time. 
Aside from the high quality of the photos themselves, the shoot itself was a tremendous experience. 
Thanks, Mary Sarah!
