Hi there! I'm Sarah Slayton, a family photographer located in Los Altos, CA. I am former second grade teacher and now I currently stay home with my two young daughters. They keep me on my toes and drinking LOTS of coffee!

I began my photography business 5 years ago. My husband purchased a Canon DSLR to use at his summer camp. Having taken photography in high school, I offered to take some photos of the kids going down the waterslide and playing water games. Taking pictures that day reignited my passion for photography and I decided to claim my husband's new camera :)

It is my biggest joy to capture genuine smiles and the happiness and love that connect a family. I love to shoot a few hours before sunset when the light is golden and beautiful. My style has been described as warm, engaging, natural and vibrant. I specialize in family, children, maternity, engagement, seniors and newborn.

Here are a few fun facts:

  • Michaels is my favorite store. Crafting is my therapy and I know each aisle by heart.

  • I've seen the original Parent Trap movie over 20 times.

  • I could eat Mexican food all day, every day.

  • I love having family days at the beach and watching my husband surf.
