Hi! I'm Sarah, but feel free to call me Sarah Beth. I've been a professional photographer for over 17 years, and I've been an animal lover and artist my entire life.
My heart-dog, Gracie – in the photo above – sadly passed away in 2019, but she thankfully lives on in photographs and other custom artwork throughout our home. Currently, Chippy the cat runs the house, and our new dog, Rosie, is learning the ropes and turning out to be a very good girl.
When I wasn't drawing pictures or climbing trees on our northern Minnesota hobby farm, I was in the barn with our dogs, cats, horses, sheep, chickens, geese, cows, rabbits, and more.
That experience taught me patience, empathy, and how to be a calm presence. You'll find I'm very good with animals, and they tend to feel comfortable around me very quickly. Fair warning: your dog and I are probably going to become best friends :)
My art degree taught me principles of design, composition, and the value of putting your best into whatever you're creating. Today, I love designing custom albums for my clients and helping them select the best images at the right sizes for their unique homes.
A special kind of magic happens when you gain the trust of an animal - when you're comfortable with each other, sharing a mutual respect. That feeling of ease is so important in capturing your pets as you want to remember them. When they can be themselves, their personalities shine through, and those are the images - the moments - you'll love forever.
I want to celebrate your relationship with your pets, whether it's at the beginning of your journey together, or nearing the end.
I want to capture their funny expressions, regal poses, and everything that's special to you, then turn those into beautiful, tangible memories to display in your home and make you smile every day.
If you want these things too, let's talk!
