Meet Cedar Rapids Moms Blog Photographer Sarah Fridono!

My photography journey started back in 2013.

I had been working as an elementary school teacher and had just had my second child. After deciding to stay at home with my girls, I bought my first camera so I could have nice photos of my children. That camera was the beginning of something wonderful! It provided a hobby I was passionate about that turned into more than I could have imagined as a business, providing a way to stay at home with my growing family. I have seen so many other families grow and change through the lens of my camera and it brings me so much joy to create something so meaningful and memorable for people.

After years of shooting in my basement and sharing studio locations, I opened my own studio in November.

It is located in Central City, just 15 minutes north of Marion. In the studio, I specialize in newborns and children. One of my favorite types of sessions to shoot is a cake smash. I love coming up with fun themes and I partner with Iced Bakery for the best cakes around!

When the Iowa weather cooperates, my evenings are filled with outdoor family sessions.

There isn’t much I love more than capturing families having fun and that gorgeous sunset light. Forming a relationship with my clients and watching their kids grow up is the best part of my job and why I love family photography so much.
