"Do what you love" was the best advice I have ever received; and I love photographing animals and young children, especially newborns.
I love capturing the wonder of discovery and the natural curiosity of both two-legged and four-legged children.
I love the innocence of sleep and the excitement of awareness seen only in the expressions of newborns, whether human or domesticated animal companion.
But most of all I love creating art inspired by the newness of the world in their eyes, and the expressions of an awakening personality on their faces.
Childhood passes all too quickly, and our pets spend a limited time in our lives, so appreciating who they are today solidifies the memories we will have tomorrow.
We excel at taking that extra step beyond candid lifestyle photography into the amazing world of illustrative portrait art where anything is possible.
This is the world where musical notes float from pianos and rose petals fall from the sky. Where butterflies and dragon flies can appear anywhere and fairies really can fly.
Portraits can become paintings. White screens magically transform into a flowery meadow or an enchanted forest. Children can grow wings or mermaid tails and pets can roll in a cascade of falling leaves. The angels walking by our side can become visible to the naked eye.
Does your child dream of becoming a superhero or a princess? Would she love to ride a dinosaur, fly on a broomstick, cuddle up to a lion? Is his nursery filled with lovable monkeys or adorable cartoon characters?
The only barriers in a world of magic are the limits of the imagination. In the world of creative art dreams can become reality.
Located at 601 W Collins in Casper, Wyoming, our studio space includes both a traditional portrait area for pets, children, and families and a separate natural-light nursery studio for newborns.
DeMaine Image Photographic Art and Ten-Mile Holistic Veterinary Care share the same facility. We have worked hard to make this space both pet and kid friendly, and we do our best to coordinate our studio appointments with Sarah to keep from overlapping with each other as much as possible.
We have a couple portfolio-building specials through the end of 2017.
1. No session fees for newborns less than 15 days old (newborns only - regular session fees apply for parents or siblings).
2. Fairy-tales & Fantasy session model searches - Spring, Summer, Fall, & Winter. Contact us for more information.
