"From the moment I walked in the door I felt very comfortable, Sara was welcoming and makes the place feel so cozy!"
"I loved the little random touches she incorporated everywhere in the studio. When it came to positions she had those nailed and helped you feel comfortable through out the shoot. The photos turned out phenomenal, I loved all of them. If you haven’t booked, you should because she books fast! You won’t regret it!!"

"Sara is a remarkable photographer in every sense."
"Her personable nature allows you to feel at ease throughout your session, and her technical skills really shine through in her angles, lighting and composition. The most amazing thing about her photos though is her ability to show her clients their own beauty. I felt radiant after my shoot, and my finished photos reflected that feeling. I didn't look like a stranger in my finished photos, instead I saw myself the way I must appear to others and that truly is a priceless gift. I 100% would recommend Sara Monroe Studios!"
