photography session was amazing and it was very easy. We agreed upon a
location chosen by Sarah and she was friendly and great with my son. The
end result was even better the pictures were gorgeous and I'm
definitely planning to book another session."

newborn session with Sarah was less than an hour and we got 5
different, adorable poses! Not only is she reasonably priced but my
photo session was on a Wednesday and she had my CD ready by Friday. I'm
already thinking about getting family pictures with her this summer!"
Kristi Martinez 1/7/2013
Had several sessions this last year!! Birthing, Newborn, 3 month
family, 6th month family and 9 month Huge Family session! I'm so
thankful for having such an amazing and flexible Photographer!! Would
have not got any of these photos if not for Sarah!!! Thank You looking
forward to this year!!!"
Elizabeth Radimak 1/6/2013
had Sarah do our first family photos that we had ever had done. I
cannot express my gratitude to her enough for the amazing job she did!!
We are constantly getting compliments on them and asked who the amazingly
talented artist was that took them. We look forward to having our
pictures done by ShutterHappy Photography every year!!"

"Absolutely loved our mini session in the fall, the first picture we have of our family of 5 all looking in the same direction .
Loved them so much we ordered 5 canvas prints and they look great
hanging in our living room. We look forward to our next session this
month and many more to come. Thanks so much!"

"Sarah came to Payette to do our first family photo session, and we had a
blast despite being in the middle of a giant mosquito storm! The
pictures that she took always make people wonder about the location and
who the photographer was. I love the lighting and the feelings that
Sarah captures in her photos. I am so lucky to have had her capture a
moment in time for my small family. Thanks, Sarah!"
Andrea Snow 1/6/2013
"As many women can agree, it is often difficult to look at a picture of
yourself and be happy with it. As a mother I understand and value the
importance of capturing pictures, as I am the one normally holding the
camera taking quick snapshots of my children here and there. Sarah has
given me a gift in her photography that is priceless. She has captured
pictures of me with my children that I absolutely love. Her natural
lighting and minimal editing ensures that I look like myself, but
somehow the most beautiful version of myself. As a military family,
pictures are often how our extended family gets to share and experience
our children. Sarah's images always reflect my children in their truest
form, from playing in sand, running from the camera, or even picking
their noses. Their personalities are always highlighted.
Aside from the talent Sarah has for photography, she has a personality
and a level of patience that allows each session to remain fun and
stress free. Sarah will laugh with you, play with your children, and do
her best to get you the images you are looking for. Even if that means
bringing pumpkins into a wooded area by a lake. Sarah has a very
personal story for why she shares her talent with the world, and her
passion and dedication to her craft shines through during every session.
I have asked Sarah to capture pictures for our family quite a few
times and I have never been disappointed. That says a lot when I am
asking her to get a decent picture of my two and four year old. I look
forward to our sessions in the years to come."

"Sarah has captured many incredible moments in my life, my wedding, the
birth of our baby girl and numerous family sessions....By far my
favorite session with her was the birth of my baby girl, I'm so
incredibly grateful I had her there to capture that. Not only was she
was very professional but she was extremely helpful as well. Not a day
goes by when I don't look at all of the beautiful pictures she has
captured of my family. Highly recommend her!!!
Ashley Rupp 1/6/2013
"Let me start by saying Sarah is the hardest working lady I know. She
goes above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect for your
session. I found out about ShutterHappy Photography through a friend who
had their wedding pictures taken by Sarah. I was absolutely blown away
by the quality and the way she caught the perfect light in each picture.
I knew I had to have her as a photographer for our family pictures. She
was so easy to work with, extremely creative and she even brought an
awesome chair to our outdoor fall session to add a little something
special. She was very quick at getting our photos to us, we received
them in just a few days which was a big change from our previous
photographer and our 3 week wait. We are constantly getting compliments
on our photos and I am quick to tell people who to call if they need a
great photographer! We will definitely continue to use her for all of
our photography needs!!!"
Erin, Michael and Weston Andersen 1/6/2013
"The best word that I would use to describe Sarah and her photography is -
Breathtaking! We have 6 little ones in our family and never have we
been able to get a satisfying picture of the 6 of them. Not only did
Sarah capture a satisfying one, she captured an amazing one! The picture
that Sarah took of me and my siblings actually made me cry! I look
forward to having Sarah create more of my family memories!"
Elisha Murphy 1/6/2013
"Thank you so much for being there with us. We can't even begin to tell you how much we appreciate you! :) Everyone who is expecting should have Sarah take their birth photos. She was so relaxed, very helpful and so happy to be there at the same time. Thank you again Sarah! I am in awe of these photos! I can never thank you enough for these!! Priceless!"
Jennifer Haustveit 12/15/2011
"Sarah is a phenomenal photographer to say the least! She’s captured two of the most important events to my family’s life thus far, our wedding and the birth of our first child. (And we have every intention of booking Sarah again when we choose to do family photos) I was very nervous about having a photographer at my wedding, but Sarah was more like a friend helping out than someone there for the money. She really went the extra mile and calmed my nerves so it was a no brainer when I wanted photos of my son taken! All of our photos have turned out wonderfully and getting an 8 day old baby to cooperate is quite the feat! Sarah is very professional and personable. You’re never just another client to her and she really makes the effort to produce quality work. Her hard work is evident in all the shots and the best part is that she’s creative! I could go to a studio, spend three times as much and get the same poses and shots as everyone else OR I could get in touch with Shutter Happy Photography and get beautiful pictures that shows off my family’s personality, creative shots that are unique to my session, and best of all, they won’t break the bank. What’s not to love?!"
Monique Lovejoy 07/29/2011
"Have now done 4 sessions with Sarah and would never go anywhere else! Not only are the pictures wonderful, but she is an amazing person to get to know! Even with my cranky screaming kids she is able to capture wonderful pictures! Thank you Sarah for all the wonderful work you have done for us!!!!!!!"
Aubrie Garza 07/28/2011
"Sarah is an amazing photographer. I knew what I wanted in my head and she captured it the exact way. We also had a very upset baby at some points and she still made our pictures look amazing. She is very great at what she does. Anyone who wants professional pictures at a great price this is the lady to call. I know she will be shooting all of my pictures from now on."
Kairee Jansen 07/27/2011
"Far best gal to work with! I was soo impressed by her professionalism and awesome personality. You made our day so special, even though I was a few hours late and going crazy in the beginning, you were very punctual and stayed untill the very end. You went above and beyond a photographer and more of the friend route to help me cope. ...Thank you for everything! I am definitely going to recommend you to everyone I know! Thank you again for your support and getting some "one of a kind" shots. Please let Ryan know how happy we were to have him there to help you as well. You two make such a great team! We can't wait to see the complete album! A huge thank you for doing an awesome job!"
Erika and Kellen Davis. 06/23/2011
"Sarah went above and beyond as a photographer for my nieces wedding! Fantastic lady to work with! Highly recommend her! Not only does she have an eye for what she does! but she's wonderful to work with! Thanks again Sarah!! Looking forward to seeing more photos from the Joetzki-Davis Wedding!"
Kate McCoy Ragsdale 06/20/2011
"My family and I have not taken a family portrait in 13 years because of past experiences. I have two younger children and Sarah was so patient with them and helped us get the best shots possible. If she will have us i would like her to do my family pics every year and big occasions. I would and will recommend her to anyone and everyone. Thank you very much for driving in this weather to give our family, pictures that we can look back on and remember."

"Sarah was willing to travel 3 hours to do our photo sessions...that alone says alot...but not only that...she is a joy to work with...everyone involved loves all of the photos!! She listens to what you want, and works with you to acheive that goal...then has so many great ideas of her own...we are already looking to book her to come back here in May...would recommend her to each and everyone of my family and friends!!!

What a great time we all had laughing and giggleing and just having a fun family day.. we will most definelty contact you again for my daughters senior pictures.. My girls are so excited to see the pictures you took with their friends and family members..
Thank you again for a wonderful and joyous day in Silver City..."
Kelli Davenport Brooks 9-21-10
"Not only was Sarah flexable on scheduling to meet the demands of my busy family, but the pictures are worth every penny and more! Having pictures some where else would be a complete waste... she captured my entire family (including dogs) and their true personalities"
Sarah Field 9-21-10
"I love the pictures that you did for us! I have to agree with the other review that NO more Walmart pictures! I cant wait to share my pictures with everyone!! I also cant wait to have you do more pictures for my family!! Thanks"
Aubrie Garza 9-20-10
"Gone are the days of Walmart photos!I believe the picture Sarah takes speak for themselves.Anyone who can capture such truthful images has to know a thing or two about what they are doing..and what a great value,the only photographer with no limit on time or # of pictures taken.PURE PERFECTION!"
Angelique Daeseleer 9-14-10
"What a great time! Not only did we get PERFECT pictures, but Sarah jumped in to help with anything we needed in preparation for the wedding! Very professional with a great sense of humor (to put up with our nervous and crazy antics!). We couldn't be more pleased! Of course, we won't be needing anymore wedding photos, but it will be Sarah we call for family pictures or any other special event pictures we'll be needing in the future. If you need any photos done for any occasion, you won't be sorry for calling this beautiful woman!!!"
