Hi, I'm Sarah Mei
I am a photographer specialised in maternity, newborn and family photography and operate all over the Greater Sydney Region.
When my camera is ON, you'll find me gushing over babies and chasing sunsets with loved-up families. What I enjoy most of all is capturing the day-to-day, in-between moments and the intricate details that may otherwise be forgotten if not for the brilliant art form of photography.
There are no forced smiles or awkward poses in my sessions. No crazy props, gear or studio lighting. My aim is to make you feel so comfortable in front of the camera that you forget it's even there.
When my camera is OFF, I spend hours editing photographs, turning everyday scenes into extraordinary images. I am obsessed with cats, and coffee - I need a daily dose of both. When I'm not working, I'm watching reruns of my favourite shows (currently it's 30 Rock), exploring the best kept secrets of Sydney, and spending time with my beautiful family.
HerE is what Sarah's clients HAVE SAID
“We chose to shoot our daughter's newborn photos with Sarah after falling in love with her style of photography on Instagram.
She came to our home and made everyone feel so comfortable, especially my 2 year old son who warmed up to "Aunty Sarah" so easily.
She took her time to ensure everyone was comfortable, baby was well fed and in a good mood, and was able to get the right shots ...”
“We didn't feel rushed, like we were just another job, but like she was a dear friend capturing our family's precious moments.
And the results were truly beautiful. Not your typical newborn studio posed shots, but warm, earthy, "in the moment" shots that capture so much love, life and emotion - exactly what we wanted!
We couldn't be happier with the whole experience and outcome. We will be so proud to put these pictures up around our home and will be sure to recommend her to all our friends and family!”
You have no idea how much I’ve just been sitting and staring at our blessing and her photos... her little hands and feet and the love Soni shows for her as well. You have done it again, you’ve given us a moment in time, that is going too fast for our eyes.. We are beyond blessed and thankful to you for giving us these special gifts to keep for a lifetime.
Your work and friendship you have given to us is priceless ad we hope you feel so proud of your work.
Thank you, thank you, thank you...”
“Sarah's work speaks for itself. It was an absolute pleasure to have Sarah as our newborn photographer. She is beautiful in and out.
She was so patient throughout the photoshoot and made us feel so relaxed. She made us feel like she had all time for us on earth. An absolutely amazing photographer and person.
With no shadow of doubt I would choose Sarah for more future photoshoots.”
“We had the most amazing photo shoot with Sarah. From the time we had met her she was so chilled, easy to talk to and always accommodating for our needs.
We had a negative experience once with with another photographer so we didn't know what to expect, but Sarah really blew us away! So professional yet so down to earth.
Our little Leo is quite difficult with strangers and when he is out in the cold, but he was smiling for the whole time around Sarah. The photos which resulted were just amazing!”
“We had a great time working with Sarah. My toddler is not cooperative and yet she managed to take beautiful photos of our family. Sarah is so professional. She will instruct on what to do so you can just enjoy yourself and act naturally. She put us all at ease especially our youngest to capture photographs that reflected our family's personality.”
“One thing I like about Sarah is that the moment I met her it seems that you know each other for a long time. Even the kids were enjoying talking with her.
She also has her fabulous customer wardrobe so I did not bother and spent money to buy a maternity dress.
Every picture is perfect. Absolutely love all of them. Amazing job!
Thank you Sarah, we will definitely book with you again. Highly recommended!”

“We absolutely loved our maternity session with Sarah from the moment we connected with her, got to know each other, learnt about what we like, the feel we wanted, and the theme of our shoot.
We enjoyed our time and had fun on the day of photo-taking even through the weather wasn't perfect.
We are happy with our photos very much, and this is the experience you can expect from Sarah who is down to earth and love her lively and fun personality.”
“Sarah made it so easy for us to warm up to the lens. She let us be ourselves, and through that she captured candid and memorable moments which I am sure we will treasure for a lifetime.
Thank you Sarah for catching the light, the smiles, and the moments.”
“Sarah did my maternity and bub's newborn shoot and did an amazing job. She is very talented and would suit those looking for a more natural and candid approach to photography.
I really loved having Sarah take our photos as she has a unique eye for detail with lighting and composition to capture a simple moment beautifully.
I also found Sarah to personally be a lovely person to deal with, reliable and any ideas we had she was happy to try.”
“I recently chose Sarah Mei Photography for a family photoshoot to capture a special time with my 6month old and so glad I did!
Sarah was really great to work with- friendly, professional, passionate and understanding.
The photos captured were beautiful and ones I will treasure forever.”
“Sarah has been such a delight to work with from start to finish. I loved hearing how she started with her photography journey, and it was so clear to me that this was definitely her passion. The photos are so evident of that! Thank you for capturing such precious moments with my husband and our baby girl! I would definitely recommend Sarah to all my family and friends!”
“Extremely talented photographer. Sarah was more than professional.
She guided us through the entire session and made the entire time a fun experience. The way the photos turned out was much better than any professionally shot photograph I've ever seen and will cherish them for a very long time.
Thank you, Sarah!”
“Sarah was amazing! Being a single mum to a 2 year old and a newborn things definitely did not go to plan but Sarah just flowed with it and adapted to us. We ended up with some beautifully candid photos!”
“Having our photos taken by Sarah has been a lovely experience.
She made us comfortable during the shoot especially our little ones, my son actually loved her.
The photos are really memorable and she captured those special moments perfectly. Definitely booking her again next year and we can't wait for our next family photoshoot with her when bub is a bit bigger.”
“We had our maternity photoshoot with Sarah on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and could not be happier! It was such a wonderful experience. Sarah was responsive in her correspondence, professional and made us feel very comfortable on the day.
Lots of laughter and fun! She has a gift at documenting special moments from unique perspectives; using natural elements, light and shadows to breathe life into every picture.
Thank you Sarah! We loved the photos you took of us, they’re just beautiful.”
“I don’t even know what to say. We are truly lost for words. I almost always have a vision and get disappointed each time. This happened with my ladies night, bridal shower photos and worse my wedding photos. When it comes to photography I have been let down a lot. So this truly means a lot to me. I am obsessed with every single photo. I’m going to have to buy more frames now so I can showcase it all. Thank you a million times!”
“We recently had a maternity shoot with Sarah and it exceeded all of our expectations.
Being 37 weeks pregnant she was very accommodating in choosing a location close to home for us. At the shoot itself she was warm, friendly, approachable and gave great direction.
My husband and I have not have the best experiences with photo shoots in the past finding them awkward and uncomfortable but Sarah was amazing.
We left the shoot feeling so happy with our choice.”
“Thank you Sarah for such beautiful pictures of our family that we will cherish for years to come.
You perfectly captured our little girl and we are so excited to frame them all up!
We felt so relaxed and at ease during the photoshoot which made the morning fun and enjoyable.”
“I came across Sarah’s page on Instagram... The style and the way she uses shadow caught my eyes and also my friend had great experience with her already. I felt she’s the photographer I was looking for - natural, raw and shows the our life in a enjoyment way in her polished skill sets.
On the day, she was very delightful and professional very down to earth. We even got a picture about our family of four successfully!
You will thank yourself for choosing her when you see the gallery!”
“Easily the best experience with a photographer to date! Sarah is super personable and she captured some captivating photographs. She followed through on everything she said she would do. I can’t say enough about how professional Sarah was during our shoot and the quality of work that she provided us with. My family and I are so pleased with our session and final photographs, we will for sure be using her services in the near future. I will treasure these photos forever!”
“We had such an enjoyable and relaxed photoshoot with Sarah, and this reflected in the beautifully natural and relaxed photos that we promptly received afterwards.
We also appreciated that Sarah was so flexible in working around the needs of our baby on the day. Thanks Sarah!”
“It was such a pleasure having Sarah as our photographer. She was very punctual, patient and really talented. She made everyone feel comfortable during the session. The photos she took didn't disappoint! She captured our family's moments really well. Will definitely recommend her to capture yours too! She is very responsive to inquiries and gave updates every now and then. Book her and you won't be disappointed!”
“I have worked with Sarah twice now - and she has been so great!
It’s not easy taking photos of toddlers but she makes it feel very comfortable.
I never feel bad or judged if my baby gets a bit fussy. Not only that but the photos turn out so great!
So glad I found her and will definitely work with her again.”
