Be still. If only for a moment, pause life eternally in a photograph. That's my job and I take it very seriously while having a lot of fun doing it!
Capturing everyday life, memorializing special moments, shared empathy during mourning, photographs are memories locked in time. They are meant to be shared, meant to be shown, meant to be printed and hung on walls proudly.
I specialize in luxury pet & lifestyle photography, while also offering branding /
business sessions. Please browse my assorted portfolio samples throughout the site
to see if my style is what you're aiming for. I can't wait to meet you, your family,
and your pets!
"If the photographer is interested in the people in front of the lens, and if he is compassionate, it's already a lot. The instrument is not the camera but the photographer" ~ Eve Arnold, photojournalist (first woman to join the Magnum Photos Agency in 1951)
What are Clients Saying?
"Sarah is an amazing photographer and pet lover. She has been able to capture the best of our little Brussels Griffon when no one else can. Our dog is extremely camera shy, but Sarah is somehow able to showcase all that is good about our dog. Thank you Sarah for everything you do and keep up the great work!!"
~ Bill Waugh
"Sarah does a great job with doing these photo shoots! She worked great with my dog and worked patiently if Maggie (my dog) wasn’t ready. She does a fantastic job and I absolutely love the photos. If you need any photos of your pet this is the place to go"
~ Sarah Staggs
"Sarah does an amazing job and worked great with both of our pups throughout our photo session. We really appreciated the time that was put into allowing our dogs to get comfortable before each picture and that Sarah asked questions about them prior to our appointment. If you are looking for someone who is experienced, great to work with and who will make you feel comfortable she is definitely a go to!"
"I worked long distance with Sarah to create two statuettes of our two dogs as gifts for my husband. She was extremely helpful narrowing down the pictures I chose to the two that would work best. Sarah was communicative, letting me know what was happening every step of the process including sharing when they were shipped to my home. Her costs are extremely reasonable, especially given the amount of personal attention and work she provides. The statuettes turned out great and my husband loved his very unique gifts! I would highly recommend Sarah Jane Furtography to anyone looking for a family and pet-oriented photographer."
"Sarah worked very hard, and with little advanced notice, to help us with a fundraising event for a local rescue. At the last minute we realized we really needed a professional pet photographer and reached out to Sarah for help. She offered her services, free of charge, with no hesitation, to help this worthy rescue. She is very professional and has a great patience when dealing with even the most uncooperative pets. Her photos are beautiful and true keepsakes for the furbaby families. She made our event a true success!"
"Can’t say enough good things about Sarah’s work! You will cherish her photos for a lifetime. The knowledge, patience, and skills she brings to a shoot can’t be beat! Highly recommend!!"
