I understand that having a photographer in the room during the most intense and precious day of your life can seem a bit scary that's why I do everything possible to make sure you feel not only comfortable but as tho you've known me forever! Every mom who's had me there to capture the most amazing and magical day of their life (from a first time mom to those who've had 6 six kiddos) has been so grateful to have me there they have trouble expressing their gratitude in words! Some even say I'm better than any nurse and should consider being a doula! I TRULY LOVE birth photography and everything birth related. Birth stories are the BEST stories and there's NO better way to tell them than through photos that have beautifully, tastefully, and professionally captured every moment, emotion, and feeling of that amazing process!
Just read a few of the many testimonials moms have written about ShutterHappy Photography and their birth experience!
were lucky enough to have Sarah capture our last child's birth. We
never had anyone photograph either of our girls and I am beyond grateful
for the absolutely amazing pictures she was able to take. She was very
personable and respectful. I would pay double what she charges to do it
again!!! Thank you!!"
"At first the idea of having a birth photographer had me in limbo, it
sounded neat but at the same time I wondered if I would feel
uncomfortable having someone other than my husband and staff there...
I decided to go for it and had Sarah capture my second daughter's birth
just a few weeks ago. I'm so glad I did! I received the cd with all the
images from my baby's birth today and am more than happy! She captured
great images! So beautiful, I cried while looking at them. Im so glad I
decided to have her capture my baby's birth. As for having her in the
room, I wasn't uncomfortable at all
Sarah was actually very helpful during my unmedicated labor. I told her
she needs to add on her Birth package that she also acts as a doula! Thank you Sarah!"
husband and I chose to purchase the "gift of life" package and we are
beyond pleased with our photos and experience. Sarah was so easy to work
with and professional, especially during our birthing experience in
which we had a scary few moments. I really can't say enough about this
photographer! She was prompt in answering any and all of our questions
and always made us feel like valued customers. Her prices are
exceptional! She will forever be our families photographer.
Best decision I ever made. If it wasn't for Sarah and ShutterHappy, I wouldn't
have these precious photos of my son. My son passed away 15 days after he was
born and I cherish my birth photos of him.
I had an Emergency C
section on Feb 3. I called Sarah and told her and she was there in less then 30 mins.
She was waiting right out side of my surgery room. She got the first set of
pictures right in the recovery room. Was the best thing I ever did having her
take photos. She gets the pictures no one can. You don't even notice she is
there she is fast at getting them and very professional. I will do these photos
again with my next baby as well. Its the best thing in the world.
When you have a c section you miss the weight n height
n foot prints. The facial expressions of your husband..... she captures all of that
and more. So worth having her for them. She makes you feel so comfortable like
you have known her for years!!
I recommend it. when I
first started thinking about it I was pretty nervous. But Sarah kept telling me
to do it and I'm so glad she did... When she was there with us at the hospital
waiting it was fun and I never felt awkward. Then when delivery started I
didn't even remember she was there. It happened so quick and of course I dont
remember much but because of the photos she took I can always look back and
remember so much more. She doesn't ever go anywhere to make you feel
uncomfortable and she does such an amazing job capturing the moment. I will
definitely be doing it again with our next little one!
I highly recommend her!! She is
amazing! I wish she would of been around when I had my girls but I was lucky
enough to have her take photos with my son! She captured something very special
to my family! My water broke 4 weeks early at 4 in the morning , I called and
she was there. I felt so comfortable with her you don't even know she is there
once things start rolling. My son had to be transported to Boise to the NICU
and she was there every step of the way and I can not thank her enough words
don't describe the gratitude I have for her!! I'm so happy she was there for
our last baby :)
I would definitely
recommend getting pictures done by Sarah! Looking at all the birth photos made
me change my mind from straight wanting a C-section to hoping she'd come
naturally before the scheduled date. Unfortunately she didn't and Sarah was
there, BEFORE us :) waiting.. taking pictures as we walked into the hospital,
signing consent forms, being prepped for surgery. My doc didn't let her go in,
but we got our own pictures. As soon as my husband came out with our daughter
she was right there to catch every moment. You don't have to take your camera
and say, hey can you get this or take a picture of all of us, it's done VERY
well by Sarah. I love my pictures. She takes pictures of things most people
don't think to do or do correctly. I wish I had a natural birth, but wouldn't
change having her there for my scheduled c-section. It was like having a family
friend there, talk about making you feel comfortable with a photographer there,
she does it. Even more I HIGHLY recommend the The Gift of Life package! Haven't
been disappointed one bit for all 3 shoots. Figuring out when we want our
family pics done by her :) Thanks for everything Sarah.. you're amazing at what
I felt awkward about
it but then realized that it would be a once in a lifetime thing and wanted
to be able to show my baby girl when she got older. And trust me...when you're in
pain, you don't give a crap about whats going on around you. Again I say, giving life
is a beautiful thing. I'd do it again any day. Oh and Sarah is AMAZING when she's
there. Beautiful woman inside and out.
