Review and giveaway: Sarah Myers Photography

July 16, 2012

I try to have family photos made at least once a year. I recently had the pleasure of a family photo shoot with Sarah Myers of Sarah Myers Photography.

Yes, I took kids (and husband) out into the record-breaking heat we’ve been having and made them sit still and smile. It was really a great experience! Sarah brought some props and had suggestions for other items for us to bring, which led to some really creative photographs. My girls loved having their photos made with their favorite stuffed animals, and I love this photo with the cross:

Sarah is really good with kids. Patience is definitely required when attempting to get my girls to smile and stay put. Here’s a shot of my Alice:

One of the main things that stands out to me about Sarah’s pricing is that her session fee includes a CD with all edited images and a print-release form so you can get prints wherever you find the best deal! She doesn’t charge per print (like many photographers) and she doesn’t charge an additional fee to purchase the CD. If you – like me – get canvases printed for your wall, this is a really important money-saving detail! Here’s the canvas I’m having printed:

Sarah’s photography sessions are $110 each, which includes the following:

  • One hour photo session in location of your choice
  • One outfit change
  • Several hours of post-shoot editing
  • Password-protected online gallery for easy proofing
  • Print/usage-released photos on a CD (you may print as many as you like, post on Facebook, etc.). This alone is an outstanding option that typically costs several hundred dollars!
Newborn Sessions are $110 for the first hour, and 50% off any additional hours. Her “Baby’s First Year Package” is only $80 per session (after newborn session) for 3, 6, 9, and 12-month sessions.
Although the majority of Sarah’s photo shoots are of families and children, she also offers birth sessions and wedding or special event photography. Local wedding packages start at $800. If you know of any engaged couples that are looking at wedding photographers, Sarah is currently offering a $50 referral fee (upon booking). I’ve been married for 9 years, but I still remember trying to find the perfect wedding photographer. One of the things that stands out about Sarah is her creativity, which is so important in a wedding photographer. She has fantastic ideas for posed shots, and also captures unposed moments elegantly.
Sarah is giving away a free photo shoot during the month of August! To win, go here to “like” Sarah Myers Photography on Facebook and then follow the instructions in the contest flyer posted on her wall. The winner will be announced July 31st.
For pricing and contact info as well as a gallery of Sarah’s work, please visit the Sarah Myers Photography blog or website. Also, Sarah is a fellow thrifty living blogger as well!
Thanks, Sarah!
