She has been a self-employed business owner for 29 years, during which time she has lived and worked in six cities across three continents. Sarah is a Fellow of The Societies of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP), Master of Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI), and print competition judge for the UK’s The Societies of Photographers as well as the US-based WPPI. Most recently, Sarah was one of six internationally renowned photographers chosen to judge International Portrait Photographer of the Year, and the UK’s Professional Photographer of the Year. She has won over 100 silver and gold awards from international competitions, including six 1st place trophies for print competition at WPPI and the Grand Award for the online Creative Division, and four 1st place trophies from The Societies of Wedding and Portrait Photographers.

Her work has been featured online, on billboards, and in print publications around the world, including Professional Photo (front cover), Rangefinder, Shutter magazine, among others.
In 2019, Sarah started Love Edits, a professional editing and retouching company. Unable to cope with demand during Covid, she began creating courses and products to help the photographers she couldn’t edit for personally develop their own skills and speed. She has transformed the lives of fellow photographers with her revolutionary retouching and color-grading tools, and is a popular product creator for The Portraits Masters store.
Alongside her full-time photography and retouching businesses, Sarah is a Brand Ambassador for Graphistudio and Global Educator for Godox lighting equipment. Her work is regularly exhibited by Hahnemuhle, for whom she has provided speaking engagements at international photography shows.
