MacFarlane Studio » Fine Art For Families


Sara MacFarlane is a commercially trained portrait photographer with 20 years of experience photographing babies, children and families.  Sara’s inspiration comes from raising her own family and creating cherished milestone artwork for each room of the house. As a shy child, Sara used her creativity as a means of self-expression. In high school, she picked up an old vintage camera kit and soon discovered that capturing portraits had a transformative effect on both herself and her subject. Sara took her first job as a professional photographer in a local portrait studio while still attending high school and her hobby quickly became a meaningful career.  Sara studied professional portraiture at Brooks Institute of Photography, Santa Barbara from 2001-2005 and continues to create heirloom portraits in Los Angeles. When she’s not coaxing newborns to sleep, Sara is chasing her children at Zuma Beach — camera in hand.


Portrait sessions are held indoors at a beautiful studio in the San Fernando Valley. A limited number of seasonal location sessions are available.
