well hi!


I’m Sarah –

Writer and


I am…

– a quirky, purple-haired English girl, living in Chilliwack, BC.

– a lover of words, a writer and a storyteller.

– a photographer of people… unique individuals, loving couples, chaotic families and soulful small businesses who just want to put their little stamp on the world.

– wife to my Paramedic husband, Stu (who talks with a funny accent!) and cat-Mum to our two fur babies, Lewie and Lola.  I’m also half-Maltese and half-English (with parents living on the tiny island of Malta in the middle of the Med) while my gorgeous, belly dancing lil sis, Hannah, resides on a completely different Ireland.

– a nomad, with a wanderer’s soul. With such a widespread family, is that really any surprise? I love to travel at any given opportunity and will take on work anywhere in the world, but especially in the UK, Ireland, Malta and the rest of Europe.

– a bit sweary (that could be a bit of an understatement…).

This lot, right here, are why I do what I do.

In the first shot, my long suffering “fine I’ll stand here while you take another photograph Sarah” husband, Stu. He’s from Derbyshire and he talks funny. Even after 14 years together I don’t always understand what he’s saying. I think he does it on purpose…

The ambulance service is how we met. He was a young trainee Paramedic and I was a Dispatcher, telling him where to go. Nothing’s changed much!

Followed by two rare images…

Lewie + Lola both sitting still for the camera (cat biscuits may have been responsible…)

And me and my family all in one country at the same time! This is a very rare occurrence indeed.

The story behind the heart

When I started training to become a Paramedic I developed a real love of those vintage anatomical drawings, particularly of the heart.

In 2014, my Mum’s heart stopped during a routine operation. It’s fair to say she scared the bejeezus out of us! I had a rough time dealing with that event… even though Mum didn’t die, I still went through a grieving process and, as the year came to an end, I felt the need to mark it with something significant. At the age of 35, I got my first tattoo 🙂

I chose an anatomical heart – for Mum and my medical background. The line written is from one of my favourite poems: ‘i carry your heart with me’ by e.e. cummings, which was read on our wedding day. And, in some ways, it represents how I’ve changed emotionally – as someone once pointed out to me, I really do wear my heart on my sleeve!

Personal Work

I rarely switch off from doing the things I love. Photography and words are two of the things I love the most (other than my family) and so it’s hardly surprising that I have plenty of personal work to share as well!

How Branding Photography Is More Than A Headshot

How Branding Photography Is More Than A Headshot

Look, it needs to be said. Because there’s still an assumption that branding photography is only a couple of headshots, and it’s about time that kind of thinking changed! I’m often asked by people enquiring about my services why it is I charge what I do for a “couple...
