Meet Our Executive Team

Sarah Braukman



I am Mom to two beautiful, sassy, extroverted (didn’t get that from me) little girls; Nora (November 2009) & Meredith (April 2011). I am a certified child life specialist by “trade”, but have fallen in love with the communities I am blessed to be a part of through Dayton Moms Blog as well as it’s sister site in Cincinnati. I love the ability to connect local moms with one another as well as local businesses and resources. I truly hope you find something special and rewarding when you join our community here at Dayton Moms Blog. Motherhood is so many things… powerful, challenging, exhausting, rewarding, life-changing and amazing to name a few. So glad to be on this journey with all of you!

Business Development Manager

Follow. Lead. Develop. Design. Write. I do all of those things here at Dayton Moms Blog. I am mama to two kiddos and there are two things I know: parenting is hard and parenting is holy. It’s power and helplessness. It’s exhausting and exhilarating. And in between all of those extremes are lessons, about our kids and about ourselves. It’s my pleasure to capture some of those and share them here.

Team Photographer

Hi there! I specialize in documentary family photography to produce authentic, feel good photos of your real moments that matter. All that I do with Chocolate Pudding Moments serves to inspire you to live in a way that lets you savor each step along this crazy dance that we all share called life. When I’m not working, I love playing outside with my nephews and niece, my sweet puppy Barley, and my amazing husband.
