Sara Zarrella Photography bio picture
  • Welcome

    Thank you for visiting our blog!

  • At Sara Zarrella Photography we are Photo Novelists telling a story in every picture. A photo novelist is a fusion of techniques practiced in photojournalism along with fashion photography to create a story through your images.

    A Photograph (often shortened to photo) is an image created by light falling on a light-sensitive surface

    A Novelist is an innovator and/or one who create/writes stories

  • "I think the most important thing is to figure out, early on, who you really are as a person and a photographer and don't stray from it. Be very definite and clear about the kind of pictures you are looking to make and be consistent with it. Do it to your best of your ability and keep shooting! Follow me on my blog as I keep on shooting. Live, Love, Laugh and Shoot Often" -Sara Zarrella

AfterProm Mini Photo Sessions | Goddard Park | Warwick, Rhode Island

AfterProm Mini Photo Sessions | Goddard Park | Warwick, Rhode Island

We love opportunities to help out a local community organization. This summer we offered up our talents to help out AfterProm in East Greenwich! AfterProm is part of the East Greenwich Parent Teacher Inc. and their mission is to provide a positive place for students to have fun after an event like prom. They provide an incredible experience for high school students and we loved contributing through taking family portraits in Goddard Park in Warwick, Rhode Island.

We met with a range of families during these mini-sessions and even photographed a few beloved family pets! It was a great way to spend an afternoon, meeting families from East Greenwich and helping out AfterProm as they raise money for next years event. Take a look at some of our favorite images captured from this day, and be on the lookout for other ways we partner with our community!

If you’re interested in booking a family session like what you see below for the Fall, let us know!

Location Goddard Park, Warwick, Rhode Island

Raegan | Newborn Photography Studio Session

Raegan | Newborn Photography Studio Session

Raegan and her parents came into the studio this week for a Newborn Studio Session! It was great to catch up with everyone, as we photographed mom and dad’s Atlantic Beach Club in Newport, Rhode Island wedding a few years ago. Raegan was born on August 14th, she weighed 8lbs 9oz and she was 21 inches long! Raegan was a beautiful model and we all had fun trying on different hand bands as Raegan got her first taste of being a girly-girl 🙂 It was a great session and we hope that mom and dad love their photos!

Congratulations on becoming parents to this sweet girl!

Happy Birthday, Zoe! | Two Year Studio Photography Session

Happy Birthday, Zoe! | Two Year Studio Photography Session

We had so much last week capturing images of sweet Zoe! Not only is she getting ready to celebrate her 2nd birthday, but soon she’ll become a big sister! A photo shoot just for her was definitely in order before the family grows from three to four. She absolutley loved her photoshoot and it was a blast watching her dance and sing as we snapped some photos.

As we took photos of Zoe, we couldn’t help but think back to her mom and dad’s beautiful Kirkbrae Country Club wedding in Lincoln, Rhode Island and Roger Williams Park engagement session in Cranston, Rhode Island. We love this little family so much and are looking forward to seeing what is in store for them!

Happy Birthday, Zoe!
