amsterdam baby PHOTOGRAPHER

sim sawyers

I’m a wife, mom, artist, and incessant daydreamer. Ill-advised baking challenges are my favorite things to tackle on a Sunday morning, and I truly think pastries are best enjoyed warm, sitting on the floor by the oven. Always a closeted girly-girl, I realized when we found out our second (and last) baby was another boy I couldn’t wait on a daughter to fully embrace all the pink frilly things. 


I help you plan your photoshoot

Spend Quality Family Time Together

Cherish the moments

As soon as you book, we schedule a time to talk about your vision for your session. We discuss outfits for your family, photoshoot location options around Amsterdam, and how you want to display your heirloom art. You have complimentary access to my client closet as well as my styling guide in your inbox! 

I guide you through a family date, so you're actually bonding and spending quality time together instead of coercing your kids to pose. I come prepared with age appropriate games for your children, so they’ll have a great time!

Once your gallery is complete, we sit back down together to walk through your framing and album choices. My little boys love looking at albums of themselves and hearing stories about when they were babies, so this might just be my favorite part!

Motherhood membership

As a mother of two, I know too well that everything changes the moment your baby arrives. Time slips away quickly and by the time you get around to scheduling a photoshoot, they've already changed into a new stage. With my Motherhood Membership, you get your maternity session, newborn, six months, and one year old sessions already on my books for €500 + VAT.*

This is the only bundle plan I offer, simply because I don't want you to miss out on documenting your baby's first year. I know how tough the first year is, and how hard it is to plan beyond tomorrow. 

When you sign up for the Motherhood Membership, I make space for you in my calendar on your due date, when baby is 6 months old, and baby's first birthday. That way, you don't have to worry about my calendar filling up or remembering to schedule photoshoots as your baby ages. As always, all family members are welcome to join in to celebrate your baby's first year of life.

*Products are sold separately. Digital files start at €50.

“Sim did an amazing job taking our family pictures! She was so patient with our little ones and knew exactly how to get those cute smiles! Our pictures turned out beautiful!!”

-amaris somma

“I am obsessed with the outcome of our pictures Sim did for our family. The day of our shoot, it was so incredibly humid, and every single gnat was all over us but Sim was still able to get the best pictures of my babies. I can’t wait to hang them all over our house!”

-Jessica Uriel

“I highly recommend Sim for her skills as a photographer and editor! She worked so well with my family, and the photos are absolutely stunning!”

-sara cook

“If you saw how my kids were acting the day of the photo shoot, you would never believe the photos that Simran got. She’s wonderfully patient is able to work with kids and families so well.”

-sarah nobles

"If you are looking for someone that’s patient kind loving, caring, and very family oriented, you’ve definitely got to use Sim Sawyers Photography. She is so amazing! I cannot even explain how satisfied and happy I was with the finished product.  When I first met her, it felt like I was at home. She was so sweet and kind to my kids." 

"If you are looking for someone to take family photos for you, that’s patient kind loving, caring, and very family oriented. You’ve definitely got to use Sim Sawyers photography. 😍😍 She is so amazing! I cannot even explain how satisfied and happy that I was with the finished product. But more than just that, when I first met her, it felt like I was at home. She was so sweet and kind to my kids. It was so natural the way she connected with them while taking their photos. My babies were just so comfortable and happy! Mind you this was our first time ever getting any family pictures taken! I am amazed at how talented this young lady is! I hate that she has moved because she is the only one I want to take my pictures now! Trust me and believe if you want great quality and someone that listens to everything that you were looking for. She’s the girl for you! Thank you so much again for taking these pictures for me and my family and creating memories that we can always hold close to us. Thank you so much."

Sim is such a beautiful person inside and out and her photography is just the same! She shot our maternity portraits (literally the day before I went into labor!) and also our newborn portraits. The process was so easy and comfortable and it was like we had known her forever! She played and had conversations with my 5 year old while I had to stop and feed the baby and she was so patient and kind to us! You can tell this is her true passion in life! I am more than thrilled with how the pictures turned out and can not wait to get them printed and hung! Thank you Sim! We miss you already!!!

i see you.

...Hoping your kids will keep it together, but they’re losing it, snot bubbling out of their noses, backs arched in protest, shrieking on the ground. It’s really okay. I prepared for this.

i can't wait to meet you!

I’m starting to think this whole photography enterprise was just a roundabout way to meet more mom-friends. If you want to bond over bubbling snot noses, the minefield that is toddler logic, and picky eating habits, let’s meet for coffee!



Already know you want to book with me? Here’s the link! (We can of course still get coffee!)
