Sarah Sloboda is the premier rock-n-roll kids photographer, casting families and children in a magical light with heirloom photography that sings. Her European-inspired style is like going “behind the scenes” — she trained on film in the vein of Life magazine and parlayed that essence into the digital age. Equal parts filmmaker, essence-finder and moment-capturer, Sarah grabs the story within a split second and frames it up for your contemplation and enjoyment.
Sarah is obsessive. She is a terrible multi-tasker. She does one thing at a time, with laser focus and super-sharp reflexes. She loathes perfection. Instead, she seeks truth and joy. You won’t be hard-pressed to find her silly side.
For Sarah, keeping a fresh perspective is paramount. She leaves space for spontaneity, and carves out time to meander. To feed her inner muse, she takes frequent field trips, reads about sociology, psychology, and spirituality, and watches foreign television and documentary films.
Her biggest asset is her ability to quickly know the essence of something. She can draw it out, and make it plain for others to see.
Sarah loves a good adventure, and finds adventure in the mundane. Show up to a moment with her and watch what happens. She will grab it, hold it up, celebrate it, and make it so much more than an otherwise fleeting speck of time.
Sarah holds a BA in Filmmaking from the University of Michigan. She is published writer, as well as the author of How to Take the Best Selfies, and was once the Production Coordinator for The People’s Choice Awards in addition to other entertainment credentials.
Having spent nearly a decade honing her craft in NYC, she is now based in Los Angeles. Traveling often, she chases her muses wherever they call her. Sarah was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, where she frequently visits.
