Jensen Elias Barrett was born on Christmas night at 11:05pm. Zach and I are overjoyed that he is here, and the love we have for our son grows each day. While giving birth to a child was far more intense than I ever could have prepared for, I am amazed that God gave me the […]

Families, Life with Sarah

Fall is such a fun season, and my favorite part of fall is the gathering of family for Thanksgiving. It was great to be able to photograph an extended family session the week of Thanksgiving for the Palmers while they were all in town together. I’ve known Rod and Margaret Palmer for as long as […]

While I have still been regularly photographing various families and couples during my pregnancy, I have not been posting regularly to my social media pages. It feels good to be typing again.

Bakersfield Fall Family Photos – The Sturdevants


The Danielson family were an absolute joy to photograph! With the temperatures in Bakersfield getting well above triple digits lately, I was so thankful for a less than 100 degree day for our photoshoot. I had met Donna Danielson around Christmas time at one of Grace Bible Church’s women’s events. I definitely wasn’t surprised when […]

Bakersfield Almond Orchards | Hannah + Beckie


By Sarah Barrett.  I don’t even know where to begin with the Reece family, so I guess I’ll start by saying they are the most fun family ever. Cindy and I had never met them before their session, but it felt like we knew them as soon as they our introductions started. With all girls […]

Riverwalk Family Photos | The Reece Family


By Sarah Barrett. Riverwalk Park is so beautiful this time of year. The fall colors in the grass and trees make for a stunning backdrop for family portraits. The Schonevelds showed up to their session in shades of green and rust orange. These colors really complimented the colors of the park. Adding in their joyful […]

Riverwalk Park Family Portraits | The Schonevelds


By Sarah Barrett. This shoot was a little different than ones Cindy and I do regularly, and we really enjoyed it. We had the opportunity to go to the Columbus Estates and photograph one of the couples there and their daughter, Marlene. Fully masked on a brisk Saturday morning, the lighting was just right outside […]
