My name is Sarah Hebenstreit and I am a San Francisco based kids photographer. I photograph for some of the best kids companies, brands, and blogs in the US. I also specialize in lifestyle portraiture for families.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography and have been working as a photographer for more than ten years. I started specializing in children and families in 2008 and was quickly named one of San Francisco's best family photographers.
Photography, food, travel, and family are big influences in my life. When I am not shooting I am working with my husband on a (never-ending but rewarding) house renovation project and preparing for the arrival of our first baby in Winter 2014.
A few more things about me: I was an Au Pair in Berlin • I miss the sound of thunderstorms and waking up to freshly fallen snow but I have learned to love San Francisco's pale blue light and foggy mornings • My mother is also a photographer • I grew up on a farm in Pennsylvania • My first plane ride was to the Middle East • I excel at hand-stands and parallel parking • I would be a chef if I wasn't a photographer • I love being a middle kid • My favorite vacation was to Iceland and I want to visit Tokyo next • My family owns a 60 year old book-binding business • I genuinely adore children and marvel at their creative minds as well as their honesty and openness towards the world around us
