Who I Am

I live in Amador County, California with my husband and our little daughter Ev. I was born by the ocean on Earth Day, and I grew up wild and free in the western Sierra Nevada mountains.

I'm training to become a volunteer firefighter, and I'm an incident photographer for the Jackson Fire Department. 

I hold degrees in Anthropology and music. I have a passion for human diversity and our deep connection to nature.

About My Work

Sincere expression is a must for me. I know how to bring the spark of authentic personality to the frame, no matter how shy or "unphotogenic" you feel.

My signature style is built on raw personality, rich color stories, and dramatic light in spectacular locations.

Sessions with me are low-key and relaxed. I focus on what feels comfortable to my clients, and that easy feeling translates to my images.

I process each image by hand to bring out every unique color story and mood.

Love Notes

"Sarah is the absolute best! She did such an amazing job on our wedding photos! She was responsive, creative, thoughtful, and a pure joy to work with! And man did she work her caboose off! She got all the shots I hoped for, and even more I didn't know I wanted! If you are looking for a very talented and hard working photographer you have found her! As our lives progress I will definitely be calling her to capture it through her wonderful pictures."

"I am AMAZED and in awe! I have never liked pictures of me but oh man.. these are amazing! And so beautiful! Thank you so much Sarah Hart you bring me to tears!"

"You have a great eye and a great gift. Thank you for that. These girls are going to go separate ways.. and I am ok with that.. but I have this, to keep. You are more than a photographer, you are an artist and you give us memories. Thank you."

"Somehow even when I think my kids were a complete train wreck Sarah pulls off these adorable photos of my kids acting normal for 3 seconds."

"I'm so happy with these photos! So so so in love with what you got of the kids, the "real" them shows in the photos and I'm just blown away!"


Do let's, darling!
