Sarah K. Portraits

Your family and professional photographer for life in Eastern North Carolina.

My portrait philosophy is simple. They should be timeless, laid back, and natural. No elaborate posing, no head-to-toe airbrushing. Just you, your family, your pups, whoever, in their element. Sarah K. Photography portrait sessions take place in every corner of Eastern North Carolina and beyond. Let's chat about taking pictures in the comfort of your own home, or on the other side of the world.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your turnaround time?

For portrait sessions, my average turnaround time is 10-14 days, but that may change based on the season. If you’re in a time crunch, be sure to let me know in advance so we can schedule accordingly.

Where do you shoot?

Mini-sessions come about a couple times a year with predetermined locations, but for custom portraits, I work with each client individually to find the perfect place. Carteret County and surrounding areas have so much to offer: beach backdrops, lush greenery, and stunning historic districts.

What's the best time of day to schedule our session?

95% of my outdoor sessions are taken in the late afternoon or evening, the hour leading up to sunset. We call it “golden hour” for good reason. Sunrise sessions are also a unique option, if you’re an early riser. There is something so peaceful about a sunrise session on the beach. It creates the ideal environment to capture beautiful moments with your loved ones.

Will I be able to share my photos online without a watermark?

Of course! It is the ultimate form of flattery. I ask that you please credit my images when posting. Most of my business comes from word of mouth. Your referrals make my day.

Can I bring my fur baby to the shoot?

Please do! SKP is a pet friendly operation. Be sure to stash a handful of treats in your pocket. It works wonders for getting them to sit pretty for the camera.
