      Sarah took my son's senior photos and they look AWESOME! The photos really brought out his personality, and she touched them up beautifully. We chose to have the photos done at her studio which has great lighting and backgrounds for her photos. The process was so easy! We drove there from Columbus and it was so worth the trip!! I HIGHLY recommend Desired Focus Photography.

      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!

      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.
