Kind Words

Just a few love notes!


If you are a parent considering newborn photos please make the investment with Sarah- it is well worth it! They truly only stay that little for so long and Sarah is very talented at what she does. Her studio is cozy and warm and she makes it easy for parents to relax and enjoy the session. She is so great with babies and you will truly cherish your photos!  – Arlee Reust

After having experience with several professional photographers I can not recommend Sarah enough. She has a natural ability to put everyone at ease and makes her studio comfortable and inviting for all. She takes the time (and I mean as much time as it takes!) to capture images she knows you’ll love and cherish! Let’s be honest, little ones don’t always cooperate, but somehow she manages to capture amazing moments amongst the choas. She has the patience of a saint, and the true eye of an artist. Every time my family has a shoot, she has multiple sets ready, and we always leave happy and excited to see the final products! All the stars for Sarah Branaghan Photography!   – Angie Smaltz

Sarah is awesome! We have worked with her twice now, for both of our son’s newborn/family photo sessions. She really works with you to give you exactly what you want, and she is so patient and gentle to get the perfect pose(s). Well worth the investment. Thanks Sarah!  – Maria Patti

How could I ever have enough positive things to say about Sarah and her amazing work? We’ve done a gender reveal, newborn, and Christmas mini session so far and I am completely amazed every time. Sarah is so very sweet with our son and always manages to get the very best smiles from him. To put it simply, we love this amazingly talented lady and will absolutely be using her for future pictures of our family.   – Britney Fondale

Sarah is amazing and her photos always turn out so good! I highly recommend her for any of your photography needs, especially newborn.   – Kate Deichler

Had the best experience working with Sarah! We were nervous first-time parents looking for a last minute photo session. Sarah responded quickly, squeezed us in and put our baby at ease for her session. Can’t imagine using any other photographer in the future!   – Luisa Gantt

We love working with Sarah so much! We did the little lashes package with our daughter, just did a family session and booked another package for our new baby coming this February. Sarah not only has an amazing eye, gorgeous props and is very creative, she also is such a warm person with a great heart. She makes you- and more importantly, your children and partner- feel totally comfortable and she has the ability to get people to really open up which shows in her photos. She captures some of life’s most precious moments, times you won’t ever get back, and that is priceless.   – Lindsey Varga

We recently had a newborn/family session with Sarah and absolutely loved her! Props galore in her studio, so options are endless. She was very patient and handled our little Ethan with such care. She was also great with our 2 1/2 year old toddler. We loved our teasers and can’t wait to see the finished product!   – Taryn Isaacs

You can tell she really loves her job. The pictures are fantastic! Worth every penny.   – Laura Rodeffer

WHERE DO I BEGIN?!?! I can’t say enough wonderful things about Sarah and her outstanding work!!! We used Sarah to photograph our new family of three for an infant session. During the session both Sarah and her assistant were so helpful, patient, and nurturing to our baby girl. It was quickly apparent that Sarah loves working with people and is phenomenal at her job. Our pictures arrived today…The results are breathtaking!! I am so happy with ALL of our pictures, I honestly don’t know how we will choose which ones to print. I am thrilled with our newborn pictures of our daughter and am thoroughly looking forward to working with Sarah again for her 6 month and one year old pictures. I would recommend Sarah to anyone looking to have photographs taken… a true joy to work with!   – Christin Pozek
