The Communion Portrait Experience

First Communion or Confirmation sessions are offered at the studio or an outdoor location.  I offer the highest quality products after capturing the most powerful moments of your child's life and transforming them into works of art. Let's take an artistic approach to our sessions combining timeless and artistic portraiture.

Communion sessions normally include portraits of the child with a variety of poses. Family members can be added at an additional cost. The style of the session is traditional, classic and timeless. We can include more casual poses if you wish as well as an outfit changed if you wanted. 

There are several backgrounds at the studio that range from light to dark & various designs. We will work together to choose the perfect backdrops for your child's special memories. 

During the springtime we welcome many little girls and boys to capture This very special moment in their lives.

Now booking First Holy Communion Photo Sessions! Celebrate this important milestone in your child’s spiritual life with a beautiful first communion portrait.

 I look forward to capturing the joy and beauty of your child in this exciting time of their life I will do so in a creative and fun way. I love letting the child’s personality come through in these special moment photos.

1. Say Hello

Use the contact form on the website to inquire about your child's First Holy Communion portrait session. Let me know if you'd like to book it as an outdoor session or a studio session.
Outdoor sessions will be scheduled in the evening about 1 hour prior to sunset at a Somerset County Park which I hold a yearly photographer's permit for. We will choose 2 dates for outdoor sessions incase of rain.

2. Schedule it

Once you have decided if you want a studio or outdoor session for your's child's Communion portraits we will then set the best date & time depending on if you want photos back before their Communion Day or wait for photos until after their Communion has taken place, some parent's who worry about getting long white dresses dirty outside do choose to have their session after the special event.
If a studio session is chosen we will choose backgrounds based on your preference. A questionnaire form will go out prior to your session so that I can go over all the details prior to the session.

3. Planning it

On the day of your session we will meet at the agreed upon time & location.  These Communion portraits will center around the First Holy Communion child even if adding in siblings & parents. They are the star of the day!
Feel free to bring prayer beads, prayer book, religious jewelry, flower bouquet (for girls) & anything else special for this day you'd like to include. 
Both studio & outdoor sessions will make beautiful backdrops for your child's special portraits.

4. Your Session

Within 10 days of our session you will receive a proofing gallery via email for you to browse & choose your favorite images from. This proof gallery will be unedited & will include all the usable images we captured during your child's communion session.
You will have 1 week to decide on your favorite images and once I receive those choices the editing process will begin.
Your final gallery will be sent via email within 2 weeks later which is when you will choose the heirloom products you'd like to own & proudly display wether in albums, wall art, or folio boxes. 
I'm here to help you design, order & display your photographs professionally from start to finish.

Sarah has been our family photographer since she took newborn pictures of our first baby. She’s kind, professional, creative and beyond talented. She has captured moments that I will cherish for a life time. Simply put, she is the best!

Sarah is amazing. Not only has she photographed my maternity and my sons newborn pictures, she also did a very special 30th birthday cake smash for me! Working with her is so easy and natural. I love having her works of art up on our walls for our family and friends to see! Thanks Sarah!


I absolutely adore Sarah. Not only is she a great photographer but her communication, dedication, and love for every single client is outstanding. Sarah truly goes above and beyond. We have used her for my first sons newborn, cake smash and splash, and 2 years of Christmas and are extremely excited to use her again for our second son due in November. I always seem to come up with random question that Sarah never hesitates to answer. There is no one better & it's always such an easy and smooth process.


We had such a great experience for newborn pictures and 1st birthday cake smash. For the newborn pictures, we really wanted to include our 2 dogs and Sarah was so accommodating. The pictures came out amazing and we received so many compliments. She had a great selection of backgrounds, outfits and accessories. Highly recommend using them for photos!


Sarah has been taking our family's photos outdoors for the last 7 years. We are always so happy with the shots she turns around. She is open to ideas, super patient with kids (and adults), and has a true talent for capturing beautiful smiles in wonderful backgrounds. Her turnaround time is quick as well. I won't go to any other photographer and definitely recommend her to our friends!

Love, love, love the photos Sarah took of our baby girl for her first birthday. I knew I was going to enjoy working with Sarah from the very beginning. She responded to my inquiry in a timely manner and was very clear and thorough with communicating process, scheduling and all of the details. Her platforms for scheduling and planning were so easy to navigate and also very thorough. Sarah was also very helpful with developing our theme and wardrobe. I can’t thank Sarah enough for capturing such a beautiful milestone in our family’s life. Can’t wait to have our family photos done with Sarah.


Best photographer ever!! I have nothing but amazing things to say about Sarah. She is truly amazing at her craft! Sarah photographed both my daughter and sons newborn pictures, and just recently my daughters communion photos. She has shot both studio and outdoor session for my family, you can’t go wrong with either. She has just a natural talent and has a great eye for capturing the perfect picture! If you are looking for a down to earth, pure raw talent then Sarah is the photographer for you!! You won’t be disappointed!


Sarah is so wonderful to work with. I’ve worked with her for 2 of my daughters for newborn and 1st birthday. She always has new creative ideas and even has the outfits and accessories for baby and big sisters!

Kelly F.

Sarah is the best of the best and we love everything about her. Her professionalism and warmth are carried into her photos. She has handled our babies from birth with such love and care and we are so thankful for the memories she has captured that we will cherish forever.

Meg W.

I had my daughter's 1st Birthday cake smash photo shoot done with Sarah. I was very happy with how the photos came out. I had a certain theme that I was set on using and Sarah was able to review backdrops that she had (there were many) and decide on two. My daughter has a lot of separation anxiety and was crying at first. Sarah was very patient and was able to turn the shoot around so we were able to get some beautiful images! I would recommend!

Michele d.

Sarah is an absolutely amazing photographer. She started with the birth of my daughter and 9 years later, she's photographed both of my children and our family multiple times a year. She is incredible with children of all ages, especially newborns. She has such a gift and I highly recommend her for all of your newborn, children and family photos!

Jen U.

Sarah has a gift for taking an uncooperative baby/child/family and getting the most beautiful pictures out of them! There is no one else I would ever let photograph my family!

Gina S.

Sarah is talented and patient with our kids. I would highly recommend Sarah for your family pictures.

joy w.

Sarah is not only a fantastic artist/photographer, she is also a fine human being with a sharp mind and a big, loving heart! She took photos for our 25th wedding anniversary and she nailed it! Every photo was a keeper, and we had a really fun time doing it. We can't recommend her enough! You won't be disappointed. She is the real deal!

John R.

I have been using Sarah for every milestone experienced during the last 9 years. She is amazing! Every session is handled with such care and attention.
