Hey there, and well – thanks for stopping by!
A little about me…
…this is tough, but here it goes!
My favorites in a nutshell: my family, my supportive husband Kirby, my 2 crazy adorable girls – Celia who is 1 and Elliana who is 3, coffee and wine, making pizza, anything pumpkin, lots more wine and coffee, cozy blankets, being creative, fireplaces, traveling, getting crazy with my friends, naps, a tidy house (I’m slightly OCD), cooking, tickling my babies, hiking, laughing uncontrollably, dreaming and daydreaming about photography <3
The long story: I moved to Kamloops, BC from Quesnel in 2000 to attend University. I got my first real taste of photography in University, and loved creating images and bringing them to life in the darkroom, in between cramming for calculus and lab experiments. After attaining my BSc in Chemical Biology from TRU, I worked as a government researcher and then a heavy industry chemical supplier. A few years later, I had my first babe.
Becoming a mother was the catalyst that caused my love for photography to blossom. In capturing all of my own kids’ special moments I was engulfed in learning the technical details and my imagination was again awoken. Sarah Robillard Photography was organically born as friends and family began to ask me to also take pictures of their babes. I became so passionate about and still am, the ability to combine the creative arts, the interaction with people and the ongoing research needed to bring these two to life in images.
I capture both commercial and heirloom portraits as well as real life – from the joy and laughter, sometimes tears (babies) – that are all part of it. I am a natural (outdoor) and studio (indoor) light photographer and my studio is located in my home basement suite. I have all the needed newborn props, backdrops, and maternity wardrobe/dresses. I love that I am able to photograph all areas of portrait photography from newborns, children, families, maternity, boudoir to commercial/portfolio head shots and real estate.
Now that you know a little about me, I hope to get the chance to meet you, and to create beautiful images for your business or your most special moments.
