      Incredible experience. I am not comfortable in front of a camera and Sarah made the entire experience comforting and natural. She’s so passionate about photography and really cares about making sure you leave with images you feel happy with. I recommend Sarah to anyone looking for extremely high quality work - a million times over !
    • Sarah is such a gift as a person, friend and photographer! She did my pregnancy photoshoot and I can’t be more grateful with her work and with the way she made me feel! I loved that she allowed me to be creative with her.The photos are stunning and meaningful to me since was my first pregnancy. Now that baby boy is with us I can’t wait to do newborn photos and experience another awesome time in the studio with my family and Sarah!

      I had a great experience with Sarah and team at Desired Focus. The hair and makeup made me look better than I thought possible and Sarah takes away all nervousness during the shoot. "Highly Recommend!"

      As a professional Santa, I have worked with many photographers. Desired Focus Photography and Sarah are spectacular. Her creativity with how she incorporates certain props make the experience loads of fun and her pictures always turn out incredible. I look forward to many more photo shoots with her in the future.

      I had a great experience with Sarah! She was professional, encouraging, and listened when I had suggestions. I hadn’t taken professional photos since high school. I love her passion for supporting women. And I love my photos!
