This is me, Sarah, I’m the one behind the camera.
I am an AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography) certified member, BVA (Bachelor of Visual Arts) Design graduate, a mother of three amazing girls and wife to my very loving, supportive husband.
My business is run from home, and I usually spend nights editing while the kids are in bed.
Sometimes it can be tricky working from home, I get distracted by many other jobs around me, but working from home gives me the chance to be with my girls while they are young.
SD Photography began way back in 2003 towards the end of my studies. I had always loved using a camera, and had been asked to do a few jobs here and there for people. Photography was my major at university, so I had learned all the fundamentals, film processing, printing, history etc. It was always so exciting to develop my photos on film. When I first started working for myself, I used film cameras, sometimes two at a time, however, I eventually changed to digital and found it just as exciting.
From there my business has evolved into what it is today. My knowledge of graphic design, and flair for creativeness have helped shape my path, as have lots of practice, experience and persistence.
I am always critical of my own work, I feel that if I am not always trying to improve my work, things get repetitive and boring. My job is never boring! It is exciting, rewarding, and I am always learning and evolving.
A family photo is one of the greatest gifts we can give to our children and their future generations.
Creating a legacy of love and connection, they strengthen family bonds, and remind them of how important they are to us.
Displaying photos on our walls can bring immediate joy and warmth into our homes.
"We couldn’t recommend Sarah enough!! She was so patient and gentle with our little girl and even let us come back another day when we couldn’t quite get a particular shot we wanted due to a screaming 16 day old.
Sarah created such a calm and comfortable atmosphere that we were able to just relax and let the magic happen.
The turnaround time was faster than expected and the finished product really blew us away!!
Sarah is amazing at what she does - it’s a real talent - and we are so grateful for the wonderful memories we forever have now thanks to her work.
We’ll definitely be booking in with SD Photography again in the future."

Not sure when to book in?
MATERNITY - Between 32-36 weeks is the best time
for your session, so usually a month is enough time.
NEWBORNS - Most tend to book during the second
trimester, but you can as early as 12 weeks if you choose.
OLDER BABIES - Two or so months in advance
is essential to secure a time and date.
FAMILIES - During warmer weather,
3 months in advance is a great idea.
This will give you time to prepare outfits.
"How lucky we are to have met Sarah and have her capture so many milestones in our lives. We first got Sarah to do our wedding photos and 3 kids later, Sarah continues to do our photos. Honestly I wouldn’t go anywhere else, I have moved to Adelaide and still go back to Mildura for photo sessions (yes she is THAT GOOD)
Sarah is so down to earth and easy to get along with we just LOVE her.
Her work is AMAZING, always manages to capture moments that bring complete joy to our lives and we get to keep them forever. Do your self a favour and get Sarah to do your next photo session, you WONT regret it!!!"
