Hello. I'm Sarah Micaela Snape of Sarahmica Photography. 

(That's pronounced Sarah-MEE-kuh, by the way.)

First and foremost, I am a Photographer of People, a portrait photographer to the core... 

 

...but I tend to specialize in photographing musicians, artists and creatives, as well as those who desire the more dramatic, editorial style portraiture I'm known for.

Music is in my blood; I'm a musician myself - a jazz singer and Berklee College of Music alumna. My husband, whom I met at Berklee, is a full time, professional musician - a BEAST of a jazz pianist. Most of my friends are musicians. Suffice it to say that I'm very at home doing what I do.

I am based in Boston, MA and work strictly 'on-location' photographing people in a way that is striking, compelling, dramatic, yet true. I thrill at each opportunity to create and collaborate, making press and promo portraits for musicians, artists and other creative professionals. 

On occasion, I also accept commissions for projects that require a more candid, documentary perspective.

 

On a more personal note...

After eight very long and difficult years of struggling with infertility (and a uterine cancer scare!), my long awaited, long hoped for, perfect little one arrived at the end of 2016 by means of natural conception! We are overjoyed and absolutely in love with our baby girl, Dove-Bohème Helena Snape. (She's a miracle and a gift from God, no doubt about it.) As such, aside from personal projects, I will be taking an extended time off - likely all of 2017 - to concentrate on just being a mother. 

I document little moments from my personal life on my IG feed somewhat regularly. Follow along as I discover this new #momlife!
