"Sarah is                                       I had a ton of mutual friends with Sarah always admiring her style. Prior to the shoot our constant communication and collaboration instantly made us friends. Her electric personality and love for what she does is contagious. When our son was born it was a no brainier that we would be using her again. She out did herself... She captured our happiness."

"Sarah took lifestyle photos in our home of our newborn son, and there are simply no words to describe how                              they turned out. Her attention to detail captured every wrinkle, smile and dimple and yawn from our son during our shoot, and the result are photos we will treasure for a lifetime."



"Sarah did a family shoot for us in celebration of my daughter's first birthday this past weekend,
and the results (which she got to us in <48 hours!) are nothing short of                                       
She spent ample time with us, was amazing with my daughter, and most importantly, the final product is absolutely stunning. I can't recommend her highly enough. She, and her work, are incredible!!
