Kind Words

I am thrilled with the pictures that Sarah did for us!  It was our first official family photo experience and I wanted to make sure to capture the “real us,” not some staged photos that lacked character and passion.  She did a wonderful job of coming up with fun ideas, and her recommendation of 8am start time to capture the light was brilliant because it definitely shows through in the pictures.  I couldn’t be more happy with the photos and recommend her to anyone who is looking to have some exciting, creative and beautiful family photos done.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for the adorable and hilarious family photos you took of us recently. You were able to capture the essence of Owen’s personality with all of his animated faces and high energy. I am always surprised by how many great shots you are able to get in such a short amount of time! My family and friends look forward to receiving the photos as gifts and once again loved your work. Thank you for being flexible and for your patience with our rambunctious two year old… the shots are priceless to us.  XOXO,

Sarah spent the better part of a chilly morning at Jetton Park with my crazy family! Sarah was very patient (we did have a 1 ½ year old running around) and she had already found some great places to set up before we even arrived which was an added bonus. I love the candid shots and funny faces she was able to capture of my little one… who is not going to be so little for long. She was able to add her creative spin to the photos and gave us just enough guidance throughout the shoot that they came out looking natural and “in the moment”.  I am learning that it is also important for me as a mom to be part of the photos and not just the one in the background taking them. I couldn’t be happier with the work that she did in a short amount of time. I have been getting a ton of compliments on the work that she did- although I am not at all surprised because I had seen her work before and love her style. We are planning on doing another shoot in the near future and of course will be using McChillin Photography. Thanks again Sarah for a great experience and family photos we will cherish for years to come!

Thank you so much for capturing this momentous time in our lives! I can’t even tell you how much I LOVE these photos. We are so pleased with your amazing work, and we can’t thank you enough for helping us document this first part of our journey to become parents!! We’re really excited, and scared shit-less, to say the least. I’m so thankful to have a friend like you to help me thru the mom-brain, midnight feedings and countless panic attacks that are sure to come. Thank you for being so supportive of my growing bump and making me feel like a million bucks thru the entire shoot. We truly appreciate you sharing your creative eye for us in these pics that will last a lifetime. Lots of love to you and your family girl!! XOXO.

Sarah was an awesome photographer to work with. She was patient and worked with our daughter and us to get those amazing shots. She made the experience fun and enjoyable. We would recommend her to anybody seeking great family photos!

We chose McChillin Photography to take our engagement pictures and they are absolutely amazing! Sarah was able to capture our personalities on camera and made it fun. She knows what her vision is and gives direction to achieve the perfect shots. She is easy to work with and is a photography genius!

I was on the hunt to find a great local photographer and Sarah came highly recommended. We had the pleasure of hiring Sarah to take my son’s first baby pictures and they turned out fantastic! Sarah came to our home allowing Bryson to be at ease in his familiar surroundings. Bryson was immediately comfortable with Sarah and she did a fantastic job capturing his natural beauty and many of his funny expressions. Sarah was open to any ideas that I offered and had many of her own. Sarah finished editing the pictures quickly. I have received endless compliments on the photos, including a photo canvas now hanging in our living room. I would highly recommend Sarah and would be happy give a full recommendation to anyone that would like to speak to me directly.

We have used McChillin Photography for all of our pregnancy and baby milestones. We love her creativity with props and lighting, but most of all, we love how much fun we have shooting with her. She makes everything seem so natural. She was incredibly patient with our newborn daughter, who was not feeling the photo shoot and even though our daughter cried on and off for over four hours that day, the pictures came out amazing! McChillin Photography never disappoints us. Each time we get our images back, we are amazed at how great everything turned out. We’ve gotten multiple compliments on our pregnancy announcement, maternity and newborn photos and several of our friends have used McChillin Photography after seeing our images. We plan to continue the tradition with Isla’s upcoming milestones and know the images will be beautiful as always.

My husband and I recently got married and we could think of no better person to ask to capture our special moments than our good friend, Sarah.  Couples always stress about this crucial detail, but it was an easy choice for us.  Sarah brings to the table a very unique set of eyes and has a way of capturing the best photos in a very unique way, which is what we wanted from our photos.  We wanted some great pics of the memories and laughter shared by our family and friends  but also an edge that set them apart from others.  We definitely got this and much more from Sarah.

We had our engagement photos taken by another source.  Although he was great – Sarah provided much more direction when taking the family photos and always made sure each shot was perfect by ’tilting a head here, arranging my dress there’ and ensuring everything looked great!!  She is also very witty and helps make everyone laugh and tried to just get everyone to have a great time while taking the photos.

It was a memorable experience that we will always remember by her beautiful photos of our wedding!  We can’t wait to have her take the baby pics – when that time comes around!!

Wow. I can’t even begin to express our appreciation and excitement about our engagement photos!! Sarah at McChillin Photography made our experience so much fun!!! My fiancé is not a big picture guy, but thanks to Sarah he was comfortable and able to be himself! She had so many suggestions of settings to shoot in, as well as positions for us to be in; so there was no chance for awkward poses! We will forever cherish our engagement pictures, as well as the awesome experience we had taking them! Thank you McChillin Photography!!!

We had the pleasure of working with Sarah from McChillin Photography for our engagement photos in the fall of 2011. Sarah was professional, had tons of creative ideas, and really had an eye for amazing photos. Even though it was our first professional photo shoot, and the nerves were in full effect, Sarah made us feel at ease and took some really great shots that were natural-looking, and really captured some special moments. We got so many compliments on the photos, and would recommend her to anyone! We will definitely be using her again in the future, thanks Sarah!

Sarah is one of my best friends so obviously when I was interested in finding a professional photographer to take my maternity shots I thought of her.  Being that she is my best friend made me think of her, but her amazing work is why I chose her!  She has an “eye” that not all photographers have where she can catch you at the right moment and create an amazing photo.  She’s a complete natural when it comes to taking photos!  She doesn’t go overboard like some photographers do with all the extras, but she just has that raw talent that is hard to come by.  Above all else, she is fun!  She made me really feel at ease so when our son Graham was born it was a no brainer that she would shoot his newborn pictures.  They turned out wonderful as well!

We were both very impressed with Sarah’s style and examples of her work.  Sarah was very helpful and communicative and we tales at great lengths about exactly what we wanted for our whimsical family portraits.  It was an easy, fun and creative session.  We would recommend the experience to anyone.
