"Sarah is so easy to engage with, she listens completely. Sarah responds quickly to emails and just makes things work, particularly when there are lots of chopping and changing on our part.

 

We will continue to use Sarah and are very happy to support her in her business endeavours."

- Elaine Durie, Operations/Administration Manager, Rangitāne Tū Mai Rā Trust

 

I provide overwhelmed professional photographers with efficient Virtual Assistant services in New Zealand, Australia, the UK, Canada and USA.

ABOUT ME

Kia ora (hello in te reo Māori)!
I'm Sarah and I'm a professional photographer too.

Based in Aotearoa New Zealand, I service NZ, Australia, UK, Canada and USA.

I am a New Zealand Institute of Professional Photographers (NZIPP) Accredited Professional Photographer. I specialise in documentary wedding and family photography with a penchant for black and white.
I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Graphic Design and Photography); and a Bachelor of Visual Communication (Honours). I have been shooting professionally since 2001, establishing my own business in 2016.
I have loads of experience as a marketing manager, social media manager, business development manager and more for both private and not-for-profit businesses.
I am honoured to share life in sunny Marlborough with my husband and two young boys.

VIRTUAL ASSISTANT SERVICES

If you are needing something that is not listed here, please do reach out. I can likely do it for you.

ZOOM IPS FOR YOUR CLIENTS

Achieving an average sale of $2000 in my own business, my sales style is empathetic, focussing on fulfilling client needs whilst exceeding their expectations. I have a passion for books and albums and love to see precious memories displayed on the walls of homes. I am inspired by Bernie Griffith's "Soft Sell System" and do not force sales. I believe in client education right from the first enquiry and love serving people who desire professional photographic products.

PHOTO EDITING

My natural style is true-to-life and I love black and white! I can work with your style and presets in Lightroom and Photoshop.
 
I do not provide retouching.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

As a qualified graphic designer I use professional tools such as Adobe InDesign to create marketing materials for your brand. I work really well with clear brand guidelines. I can also work in Canva, Word etc. creating templates for you to use autonomously over and over again.

COPYWRITING

I love to write! My instinctual writing style is professional and succinct. I can adapt to match your tone of voice for a seamless customer journey. I provide an end-to-end experience incorporating drafting, upload, sending, publishing and reporting on performance.
Mediums include:
  • Blog posts
  • Email/mail newsletters
  • Website copy
  • Social media captions

WEBSITE MANAGEMENT AND UPDATING

Wix and WordPress I am familiar with and I learn new systems easily.

SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT

Whether you need posts scheduled, captions written, reels put together or a complete social media calendar created I can do it all.
Platforms include Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, YouTube and I'm keen to learn TikTok.

CLIENT COMMUNICATIONS AND CRM OPERATION

Combining my love for people and desire for efficiency really comes to the fore with client communications and CRM operation. Allow me to liaise with your clients to arrange shoots, answer questions, book IPS in person or via Zoom and more. I'll update your CRM with all relevant contact details as required.

AVAILABILITY: ZOOM IPS

Zoom IPS is available to photographers and studios with an existing average sale of $1000 or more. I can provide Zoom IPS for your clients at certain times, subject to availability. If you need to provide Zoom IPS to your clients at different times, please do contact me. Timezone conversion will vary with daylight savings and according to your precise location.
