Hello there! My name is Sarah Bailey and I am the photographer behind Dandelions and Dumptrucks Photography.
Photography is a family affair for me. My children are my inspiration and have trained me well (mommas I have seen it all!). My children are my muses and inspiration. They frequently choose my session locations and help with set designs. My husband makes kiddos laugh, holds chandeliers in place, and even builds props for me. When you book a session with me, you are getting a whole family in return! As for me, I love glitter, all things crafty, and never, ever dreamed that one day I would be a photographer.
My journey with my camera began with a strong desire to capture the beauty and innocence of my own children. I wanted to capture the moments 'in between' and not just the posed pictures. My passion to photograph these moments and memories has now grown to include families sessions, couples, expecting mommies, senior portraits, and weddings. My goal is to not 'take pictures', but to create art. I want the images I take to be a treasured memory that will hang on a wall forever. I truly believe that the most precious decor we can have in our homes are the faces of those we love.
Why Dandelions and Dumptrucks??
What child doesn't see a field full of dandelions and go running straight for them with sheer excitement? As adults we cringe inwardly as we watch the invasive seeds blow all over the place - praying they won't land in our yard. As children, they see the most magical moment as this 'blowin flower' explodes into a million pieces filling the air like stars in the sky. Wouldn't it be nice to look at dandelions as beautiful again? Every spring and summer I receive daily bouquets of dandelions in their various stages - all of them beautiful to my children, and all of them special to me:)
Whether it is family sessions, newborns, a wedding day, or a graduate...I promise I will make it an experience for you to treasure for a lifetime. You may even get your own bouquet of dandelions!
