Sarah Beard

Hi, I'm Sarah and I'll be your photographer! Based out of The Beaches of Jacksonville Florida, I specialize in family photography. 

This fall I will be graduating from Southern New Hampshire University this fall with a degree in Photography.

I grew up in Wisconsin but have lived all over the country. I've lived in New Mexico, Maryland, Virginia and now in Florida.

I started Cross Your Heart Studio in 2017 and have been enjoying watching my skill and craft grow ever since. I've photographed everything from families, weddings, elopements, surprise engagements, roller derby, and boudoir.

What people say

Absolutely recommend Sarah! She has captured some of my most cherished memories wiht my people and we cannot thank her enough

Sarah is by far my favorite photographer I've worked with. She makes it so easy and not intimidating at all being in front of the camera. She's very open to ideas and listens to what you have to say and your wishes for the shoot.

We were blessed with Sarah's talent for our wedding pictures and we are so happy. From the beginning of our communication, she made us feel at ease and never rushed nor pressured. This resulted in naturally beautiful photos. Book your photo session today!


Mini Sessions

Mini sessions are 30 minutes of shooting for $125. You get 10 photos, 1 outfit, and 1 location. Types of shoots that are ideal for a mini session are milk and fruit baths, surprise engagements, family sessions with little kids, dogs, or with less than 6 people.


Full Hour Session

A full hour session is $250, 20 photos, one location, and up to two outfits (any time changing outfits does come out of shooting time).  Full hours are great for large families, events, weddings, and elopements.



A 45-minute maternity session is $175 and you will receive 15 photos. I have several gowns available to borrow if you don't want to purchase one of your own.  I prefer to schedule about 3 weeks before your due date, when choosing a location make sure you will feel comfortable enough walking around the area.



A no rush session in your home for $300 that includes 20 photos, a moses basket, swaddles, lighting, a noise machine, and a heater.  I like to schedule newborns about a week or two after the babe is born to help you get into a routine, heal and feel comfortable moving about.
