"Sarah is such a pleasure to work with at every step. I had been avoiding getting headshots done, because I found it to be intimidating. She somehow made the process of getting headshots done simple, even fun! Every step in the process was easy - from reviewing package, booking a session online, the session itself, image review and final turnaround - Sarah was friendly, thorough and very timely throughout. And the final results were wonderful. Highly recommended!"

- Peter N.

"I was dragging my feet for getting my headshots updated. I hated my previous pictures. Through a referral, I found Minneapolis Headshots and I am so glad I did! My pictures turned out so well, it was incredible! I had plenty of options to choose from. Additionally, working with Sarah and her team was an A+ experience. From the moment I sent my first email to the delivery of my final proofs, the entire experience exceeded all my expectations. And, it feels amazing to now have pictures that reflect my brand. Meanwhile, the reaction to my new headshots was immediate! Just swapping out my pics alone on LinkedIn and FB etc. drove a ton of traffic and organic interest in my business. "

Sarah is the owner and founder of Sarah Pierce Photography/Minneapolis Headshots and manages the Minnetonka location. She listens to her clients and is very detail oriented. She is the leading headshot photographer in the Twin Cities and has photographed thousands of professional headshots.
"We all tend to focus on those physical traits that we don't like, like a crooked tooth or those pesky crows feet. Things that most people might not even notice. I like to find the good things about each client. Sparkling eyes. An infectious smile. Dimples. Because when we focus on our good qualities, our true personality will shine through in the photos."
Sarah started with film in college and developed her own prints (the old fashioned way -- in the darkroom!) She now uses digital cameras full time and loves keeping up with technology. She graduated from Concordia University in 1999 with a BA in Organizational Management and Communications. She is a proud member of the Professional Photographers of America.
Sarah is married to Dan and they have two children (ages 15 and 18) and a rescue dog named Clyde. They reside in Chanhassen and love visiting Duluth, where Sarah was born.
