• Welcome to Sarah Sweetman Photography

    Who am I? I am a mother, I am a wife, I am a sister, I am friend. I am a kiwi, I am a world explorer, I am in love with finding beauty in every day moments. I am sometimes silly, I always love to laugh, I like to look for the best in everything.

    I believe photographs are a visual record of your story. I believe it is my honor to capture your memories so you can relive moments over and over long after they have passed.

    I believe in the real you. The beauty in the perfectly imperfect.

    I am an award winning photographer specializing in birth, maternity, newborn and family portrait photography. I serve the wider Seattle WA community, but also travel further when needed.

Miss Wyatt – 10 days new, came to visit me at the studio. What a sweet baby girl – her luscious dark hair with bright blue eyes – oh my.  I loved the cream and white set ups we did, that highlighted her dark features.

Congratulations S family on the safe arrival of your sweet girl.  I was so honored to be her first newborn photographer.  xo

Little Annabelle – she came to me 13 days new and I was so glad she did.  What a gorgeous baby girl.

Her dark hair and long eyelashes, rosebud lips and perfect round cheeks – oh my goodness – a photographer’s dream.  She slept like a dream and we were able to get so many different setups with her – I guess she already enjoys dressing up.

Welcoming to the world Miss Annabelle – I was so grateful to meet you xo

The C family and I used to be neighbors when we first moved here from New Zealand.  She was the proud mom of 4 boys at that stage.  Since then, she has added 2 more handsome boys and now is pregnant with a sweet little girl.

Amanda was born to be a mother – she relishes it and thrives with having noise and bustle.  I always marveled at how organized she was and calm in amongst all the chaos:)

I loved documenting her baby bump – she doesn’t know if this will be the final addition to their family, but it is pretty special to have so many brothers in love with a baby sister.

thanks for stopping by the studio – I cant wait to hear of her safe arrival soon! xo

Nicole and I met at a women’s conference a few months ago.  She and I connected immediately – like it was so amazing that we had our stands beside each other and we were meant to connect.  I felt within minutes like we had known each other for a lifetime.

Now, Nicole is an amazing baker (seriously amazing – you need to go and check out her blog at http://mrsralstonskitchen.wordpress.com/  You will not regret it).

Her love story with husband Ian is one of courage, unconditional love and support.  Ian was paralyzed when shrapnel from an exploding improvised explosive device lodged in his spinal cord while travelling down an Iraqi roadway, during Ian’s second tour of duty.  Coming home and dealing with the aftermath of no longer being able to move as he once could, was an adjustment for them both.  (you can read more here:  http://www.kwwl.com/Global/story.asp?S=13122154&sms_ss=facebook)

I loved watching them banter with each other – the friendship and love between them was just so sweet to watch and I adored being able to capture these photos for them.

Nicole and Ian – thanks for letting me capture these precious moments for you both – see you again soon xox
