Hey there! It's me Sarah, your adventuring, rural-loving senior photographer and your new BFF behind the camera.

Seniors who trust SMP to capture their senior photography session want imagery that captures who they uniquely are and an easy-going, supportive experience before and after the camera’s been clicked. It’s important to me that you have an enjoyable photography session and simply can’t wait to share your photos with your favorite people, which is why I spend time with each senior client and their families to set the vision for your session.

As you celebrate this season of change and choices, let me capture your natural shine with a senior portrait session that feels like YOU.

Meet Sarah
After a 21-year career in corporate graphic design, my passion for photography became my full-time career. Now, I’m living my best life connecting with high school seniors on the cusp of their own journeys to realize their dreams.

When I don’t have a camera in my hands, I’m gardening, fishing, and adventuring with my husband and our grown daughters in southwest Wisconsin and wherever our travels take us!

I believe in Telling Your Story.

Hey, Seniors:


I’m obsessed with the natural look and the dreamy light that Mother Nature provides in the evening hours just before sunset. But what I enjoy most is celebrating your senior year and helping you feel comfortable and confident during your senior photography session.

Why I Love My Work

Celebrating your senior year is more than snapping a handful of beautiful portraits – it’s about showcasing you who are as you enter adulthood. I’ve supported many seniors who feel awkward and uncomfortable the minute their session begins, only to watch their confidence blossom throughout their senior photography experience.

Your senior photography experience is about honoring who you’ve been, celebrating who you are today, and capturing who you’ll become next. From inquiry to gallery delivery and beyond, it’s my mission to share your authentic self and support your journey, wherever it leads you.
