The 2020 Find A Photographer awards program was such an exciting time! Clients from around the country reviewed their favourite photographers and some absolutely fantastic businesses were awarded. Today we speak with the 2020 National and Queensland Find A Photographer Award winner, Sarah Gage Photography from Toowoomba QLD.
I started photography in 2010 in Brisbane, mainly photographing families and weddings. After moving to a small town called Millmerran in regional darling downs I began to focus on Newborn Photography, working solely on location travelling to peoples homes, shooting out of lounge rooms :-). Most days I would travel over an hour each way, loading up my car with props lighting etc each time. As I became more busy, the opportunity came up to open a studio I moved to Toowoomba in 2017 and now operate from my Home Studio. Many of my early clients now travel to see me now for shoots as their families have also grown.
I primarily photograph newborns around 1-3 weeks old and many of the same babies come back for a 6-12 month old sitter session.
What She Loves
Newborn Photography is hard work but also very rewarding. I love the interaction with my clients and their children, as it is such a happy time in their lives welcoming a new baby. I also love that I work from home and have managed to run my business around my family as I am a single mum to 2 kids.
Her Reaction When She Won
It felt better than any photography awards, as at the end of the day, it would not be a successful business without happy clients. I loved reading all the reviews as I strive to make the newborn photography experience an enjoyable one and create long lasting memories.
Sarah’s 2021 Plans
Continue working with Toowoomba’s families and photographing many newborns. My studio is also expanding, so the space will be even more special for shoots.
