Testimonials

We absolutely LOVE the photos!! You did an amazing job catching those baby girls’ personalities…how do you do that?   My daughter in laws are going to be so excited with their family shots. They turned out beautifully and I think the approach for each gave them exactly what they were hoping for. Bob and I are also thrilled with the city group shots; it’s tough to get all the kids in one place at the same time (let alone find time for photos), so I’m over-the-moon about that as well.  And those pics with Bob, me and those babies are so special…I’ve probably looked at them 20 times this morning. Can’t stop smiling. I’m certain that the key to a great family photo shoot (esp. with babies/toddlers!) is finding the right photographer. You are so calm and relaxing to be around, and are always looking for the shot that captures a moment.  For me, it’s all about having those memories captured on film that mean everything, and you’ve done that for us again. Thank you so, so much, Sarah! Lois

Sarah thank you so much for such a fun afternoon and these amazing photos!! I can’t stop looking at them. We will truly treasure them and are so thankful to you for capturing this special moment in time for our family!! Xoxo Laura

Sarah, you are a treasure and a wonderful photographer. My heart was so full looking at these pictures. You captured the spirit of our family so well. In these pictures I see the joy and light of being a parent and in growing a new baby. Our family will cherish these memories. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Evangeline’s mom!

With family coming to NYC to celebrate our granddaughter’s 1st birthday, we wanted to find a photographer to help us capture some wonderful memories of this very special time.  Looking through Sarah’s  impressive portfolio we just knew she would be perfect for us, and she was!  She is such a warm person and was absolutely amazing with the baby, quickly putting us all at ease.  Because she is equally creative with indoor as city shots, we now have this imaginative, intimate and uniquely beautiful  portfolio of photos to share and remind us of this magical day for our family. And that is priceless. Thank you so much Sarah! Lois V.

You exceeded our expectations!  My daughter describes you as “amazing” and couldn’t say enough good things about how you did the photo shoot. Can’t thank you enough for making this special family moment one to cherish. You are a delight to work with and I look forward to working with you in the future.  Wendy C.

I had the fortune of meeting Sarah three years ago when we were new to the area and looking for a photographer for a maternity shoot for my second baby. The photos she took at that first session, especially of my son, are truly priceless and will always have a special place in our hearts. Trusting someone new during such a precious time is always nerve-wracking but we are so happy that we did. Since that time, Sarah has done newborn, family, and holiday shoots for us and it feels like she is a part of the family. Every time we book with her, she has new ways to keep the kids engaged and innovative treats to conclude a successful shoot that keep up with their ages and evolving interests. Even when Sarah was pregnant with her third she was running around to get the perfect picture with an energy and enthusiasm I can only dream of having. Her turnaround time is likewise superhuman managing her family life with three young children and still getting us our photos and online gallery in record time… last christmas even including a special photo ornament and some prints for my mom! After prepping outfits and managing moods and nap schedules for days, it is so comforting to get an instant sneak peek and know your long preparation was worth it. Now I can’t imagine ever going to anyone else after the bond Sarah has developed with my family and kids. You would be lucky to have her capture your family’s moments and milestones! – Seema B.

Sarah Murchison is one of the easiest photographers to work with. Her ease at getting both children and adults in the right position as well as her ability to produce happy faces for the camera is uncanny. We love Sarah and will continue to use her for our family photos for years to come.  Claudine W.

My family has had the pleasure of  having our Holiday photos taken by Sarah for the last two years.  Sarah is a professional photographer, who uses her own instincts as a mother to ensure that truly natural photos of our children are taken.  No forced smiles  here!  Sarah attends each shoot with all of the appropriate equipment and she takes the time to scout out the area to get the very best pictures.  And, on top of the fabulous pictures she takes, her turn around time is amazing!  Within 3 days I had the link to my photos and was able to start picking out all of my favorites.Overall, Sarah’s extremely pleasant demeanor, her ability to understand children along with reluctant husbands,  and her true talent (you can see her passion for photography) equal a pleasant experience with excellent pictures! I will definitely recommend Sarah to others looking for high quality, no drama family photos!  Amy H.

Sarah came to our low-light home 10 days after my daughter’s birth and shot photos that I will remember and treasure forever. She captured the spirit of my little curious girl and I totally trusted her vision and creativity. I was so thrilled to welcome Sarah into my home during these special first days and plan to do in the future. I know you will love getting to know her and you will feel 100% comfortable entrusting your children and special memories with her. – Paloma L.

My family just had our Christmas pictures taken with Sarah for the fourth time, not to mention the various shoots we have had at other times of the year. I am always amazed at Sarah’s calm presence amidst the chaos that comes with corralling our three young kids. She uses her ingenuity and ease with children – plus some handy props – to grab their attention and capture pictures that I would have never imagined were possible! – Sarah S.

Sarah is a terrific photographer. She came very well prepared and was very aware of lighting and composition. She made us feel very comfortable during the shoot and was able to capture the essence of each of us. She even had treats for the kids when we were done. We were thrilled with the outcome and look forward to having another session with her in the future. -APvB

We came to NYC (from Sydney, Australia) to celebrate my 40th birthday and wanted to find a photographer to get some family shots with a New York vibe.  Sarah was very easy to deal with, thorough and always very prompt to respond.  She understood what we wanted to achieve and, on the day of the shoot, was a pro at getting our (very jet lagged!) children to relax in front of the camera.  Sarah made the photos available quickly and we are absolutely thrilled with the end results.  We’ve had a few family photo sessions and this one was easily the best, and a wonderful way of remembering our short time in New York.  Thanks Sarah!  – Julia T.
