Sara Paley is the photographer I chose to capture the moments of Natalie’s 100th day of life. Natalie is my first granddaughter, and I was keen to find a family-oriented and accommodating photographer who could capture the intimate moments of this celebration. From my first meeting with Sara, I felt confident that she was the right person for the job. Sara is patient and flexible when it comes to scheduling the perfect photo session; our session was scheduled for the Easter long weekend which was the weekend that accommodated my niece and family traveling from the Okanagan. Sara spent hours before our session investigating the perfect backdrop that would highlight the cherry blossoms in bloom that weekend. On the day of our session, her willingness to travel with my family to 3 separate sites along with a 3 month old baby speaks greatly of her professionalism. Sara is experienced with children of all ages and she was very understanding when it came to working around Natalie's schedule. I am truly grateful for the beautiful photographs that resulted from our session and would not hesitate to recommend Sara to family and friends, especially those with young children. Thank you Sara for the photographs and hardcover photo album that my family will treasure forever.
Wow! Those photos are really nice! Thank you! We are quite pleased. There are some real gems! Thanks again, your work is really appreciated.
We just received our pictures from Sara and love them! There are so many beautiful moments caught with our family.
Thanks so much for being an awesome photographer! We really enjoyed our session!
OMG they're perfect. We can't thank you enough. You're the best. We are sooo happy!! There's definitely quite a few that made [daddy's] heart melt. You do such beautiful stuff. We will definitely be using you again. :)
Thank you Sara, the pictures look great!! You did a great job. <3
The pictures turned out great. We loved them!
Sara did a great job capturing our family. She got some great shots even though our toddler decided he didn't want to cooperate with us!
I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere you created during the photo shoot and I felt totally comfortable during the whole experience. I would recommend Sara because it's simple—great shots—great service. Keep doing what you do!
Sara is a dedicated and insanely hard working person. Her work is impeccable and I would highly recommend her services.
Sara Paley has done it again!!! She has captured my grown family in such beautiful ways... with lighting and laughter ;) I am so grateful to have these photos of me and my big kids to look back on and to use with my social media posts. Such a professional look she has created for us! Thank you Sara.
I think you are totally and wonderfully the most awesomest photographer there is!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3
I like the crystal clear colours and placement of people in the surroundings, the lighting and your creative eye. You seem to have this ease with creating beautiful shots. Beauty. You have an eye for beauty... and the ease you help to create while taking shots, is wonderful.
Great eye. You are the real deal.
The photos are beautiful and 100% exactly what I was hoping for. You are professional, talented and made us all feel at ease even though I was super nervous! Keep up the fabulous work!
Just and absolutely wonderful photographer and such a professional! I highly recommend Sara to anyone!
We just did a photoshoot with our 2.5 yo sold with Sara and she was amazing with him! He was comfortable with her and really let his inner cheeky kid shine. Sara captured his awesome spirit and I am thrilled with her photography and editing.
In Sara's photos we look like the people who are in the picture frame when you buy it. Like we look so good, we rival professional models. And we're pretty regular looking folks. Everyone is gushing about how amazing the pics are. You captured the best part of us!
I absolutely love the photos she took. I just can't say enough about them. She was awesome during the shoot – super professional, on time, nice, had gone to the location before so she had some ideas. I really liked how Sara instructed us in doing things during the shoot because we are super awkward in front of the camera so we can't just do that "natural" family thing without assistance.
Sara just finished our family photos and they look incredible! She captured so many beautiful moments. Both the posed and candid shots look stunning. Our family session included me, my husband, and our 14 month old son who was really only interested in running around the park. I was worried we wouldn't be able to get many good family shots, but Sara was so patient and was able to take a ton of great photos that we will treasure forever. We will definitely use her again for our next photoshoot!
You capture the awesome spirit of kids!
Sara's photos are incredible, so heartwarming and they really capture the essence of your little one! She is very professional and comfortable to work with and it really shows in her images. Couldn't have hired anyone better :)
Sara shoots beautiful portraits of babies and kids, she's such a pro at what she does.
Sara is a creative talented and professional photographer who took the most beautiful pictures of my kids!
Wow! We absolutely love all your photos!! Thank you so much!!!! We are so grateful for your amazing photos that captured precious moments for our family. I can't stop looking at them!! Thank you ever so much.
Captivating innocence of children and touching memories [of your photos caught my eye].
I like how natural the kids and families look in your photos. You catch the beautiful moments so well!
Thanks for the lovely photos, Sara! We love them! 15 minutes well spent.
Sara!!!! The photos are beautiful! What can I say? You are so freakin talented. Amazing.
Sara was so patient with our squirmy toddler and managed to get an unexpected number of great shots in such a short time. I'd definitely recommend Sara if you're looking for a photographer.
Thank you so much for taking such beautiful photos for us, they turned out absolutely wonderful.
I hired Sara Paley for pictures to go along with the launch of my new book. We shot in the Sun Yat-Sen Garden. Sara immediately saw the opportunities for framing shots and for contrasts that are part of the Garden's design philosophy, which speaks well of her artistry. My first photo shoot was more exhausting than I expected, but the results were more varied and interesting than I anticipated. I highly recommend Sara's work to others.
Thank you for your professional and artistic job. I look forward to seeing your blog about the shoot, and I will definitely recommend you to others.
Sara was able to fit me in her busy schedule on short notice and I really appreciated the quick service. She is very sweet and pleasant to work with. I loved the photos and she gave me lots of shots to choose from. Will definitely use her again. Thanks, Sara!
Sara is a fantastic and creative portrait photographer. She has an amazing eye for detail and the images she provided were beautiful. Her work is always so vibrant and full of beautiful light. You can't go wrong choosing Sara to capture your children, family or any other moment in your life.
Sara did my engagement pictures, and it was a fantastic experience. The pictures were great and both me and my fiancée (now wife) were really pleased.
There's a good variety of simple and artistic shots, all of a very high quality. We got a lot of interesting backdrops and angles. I appreciate the strategic placement of shadows and how you had them line up with my shadow. You take your work seriously and you deliver professional photos within a reasonable time frame.
The pictures are wonderful! Sara is a pleasure to work with. She makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera and is very friendly.
Thank you so much Sara. I honestly cannot thank you enough for taking the time to do the family pictures. We are so grateful for the ones we have. They are so so precious.
Thank you so much for these beautiful memories. They will be cherished forever.
Sara has the gift! Everyone loved the shots she fired at our son's first birthday party at the beach.
Most recently I did a portrait session with Sara. We wanted to build a portfolio of photos to use in all of my marketing. Sara did a great job not just providing a great variety of shots, but also keeping in mind my requests for different backdrops and framing that would suit different marketing needs (social media banners, business cards, letter head). She checked all the boxes.
Thank you so much! They are just so awesome! I LOVE THEM! Thank you ever so much!
Thank you Sara! We had so much fun and love how the photos turned out :)
Thank you Sara Paley Photography for such a beautiful photo of my little family! You were great to work with & we are more than happy with the results!
The photos are gorgeous. Really gorgeous! You did an amazing job.
I had such an fun time being photographed by Sara! She is so dedicated and passionate about what she does, it really shows in her work! Her creativity and fun loving personality is what made my shoot so spectacular—the photos turned out better than I ever could have imagined. I'm so thankful I chose her as my photographer and I'm so excited for our next session.
We love it. Thank you so much for wonderful photos. It's a precious gift for my family. Again, thanks!!
Hey Sara! I LOVED the photos! You have a great eye and are super talented. They turned out beautifully!
Thank you again. The photos turned out spectacular, better than I ever thought. You're amazing!!
Sara, you are such an artist.
Amazing. The photos are so great, beyond expectations and I'll be thrilled to recommend you. Thank you for all your work and your wicked eye.
Great quality and quantity of photos. Got all of the shots we were looking for. Sara is professional, fun and she does a great job. Thanks for the great photos.
Sara, the pics are beautiful! Thank you so much!
The lighting and sense of colour and composition was really amazing and just what we were hoping for. We loved your efficiency in taking lots of great photos in a small amount of time. We definitely would recommend and did recommend you to everyone. You have a really great eye for detail. Thank you so much!!
Sara took the time to understand our needs, blended in, yet made sure to include all our guests. Our son just loved her and she captured his joy and enthusiasm.
We had an amazing evening with Sara and love ALL of our pictures. She captured exactly what I was hoping for.
We are very happy with these shots, great work! Thank you, Sara.
Whether it was the lighting, the angles, or the editing, Sara brought out our best features and her pictures were very flattering. She was very efficient and she completely over delivered. We received far more photos than we expected and they were of stellar quality. Sara's pictures are more than just pictures. They truly capture how we felt in that moment. She has a wonderful talent for all kinds of photography, especially for families. She has so many tricks for getting babies to smile for the camera too!
Hi Sara! we really enjoyed the photos!! You really did an amazing job of capturing the moments! Thank you so much. Love the pics!
I love your photography!
The colours are beautiful! Our session was laid back and easy. I would recommend Sara to family and friends. She made the process simple and got the photos to us super quick!
Sara's photos are unique and creative.
Oh my god!! So beautiful!! You seriously did amazing!! I can't wait to see more!
Check out Sara Paley Photography! She does amazing work and is wonderful to work with. Our daughter was afraid of the camera but Sara was still able to capture great moments that turned out beautifully. So happy with the results.
If you're looking to do a photo session, have a chat with Sara Paley. She did Maddy's 2 year photos and they were amazing even with how cranky she was that day! Have a peek at Maddy's photos in her blog and you can see the amazing photos and the special touches she does.
Fantastic photographer! The photos really speak volumes to the care, attention, and detail she puts into her work. Highly recommended. ++
The whole experience was great, it was a wet and cold day, but Sara’s skill and professionalism ensured that we enjoyed our selves and got the best photos possible, it was definitely worth it and we would love to do it again. I feel that the portraits were natural and reflected us accurately. The use of light, composition and processing however allowed us to look our best selves compared with standard photos, which is really what we wanted from our session. The best part was having our photos taken in-front of the christmas lights and seeing Sara’s enthusiasm and determination to get the best possible shots for us. Those are some of our favourite photos, it was a great way to record our engagement. It was a very easy and enjoyable experience and all of the shots turned out fantastically. Sara takes such pride and care in her work, you are guaranteed to have a great experience and to have beautiful photos you'll treasure for a lifetime.
Our engagement session with Sara was fantastic. She made standing out in the rain and the cold easy and fun and captured some amazing shots that we will treasure forever.
Sara's photos are bright, personalized, and put the focus on the meaning of the event she's capturing. I will have these memories forever and I enjoy looking at them and remembering that special time. Sara's photos genuinely reflected the best of me. The best part of being photographed by Sara is that she understands what will look best in a photo and makes you feel comfortable. She is good at explaining how to pose in terms that make sense to someone who doesn't have previous experience with this. She is very professional, dedicated to her work, takes beautiful and unique photographs, and is great to work with. Sara, keep on doing what you're doing!
You take absolutely beautiful pictures Sara!
Sara, I am beyond impressed with your images! They're absolutely amazing. THANK YOU so much for the pictures and your time. I'm absolutely thrilled. Thank you for lending your enormous talent to our event.
The pictures turned out amazing! I liked the idea of the casual setting and the non posing. My son enjoyed his time with you! I think you being a Mom helped relax him. Normally he hates pictures being taken of him but I think he felt he was just playing.
I'm so in love with the pics. Couldn't be happier!!!!!! Thanks a million! Thank you Sara for coming to our home and capturing the most precious photos for our family, and especially for giving up your Mother's Day to do this. OMG my jaw won't close, I'm in awe of how beautiful these are. Thank you soooo much Sara!!!!!!!!
The bright sun actually worked great for those pics! I love the lighting.
Thanks for the pictures! They look amazing! Great job!
I hired Sara through the recommendation of a colleague for an event I was organizing for Rocky Mountain Soap Company in Vancouver. Sara was professional to work with prior to the event, however it was her attention to detail in photographing the event was outstanding. The pictures we received were way above our expectations, they were gorgeous, and loved everyone of them. Thank you Sara for doing an exceptional job on our event photos.
Whoa, these are soooooo wonderful!!! Thank you super muchly!!!! I am sooooo full of love and gratitude for you and your ability to capture these moments. You have such a gift my dear friend AND thank you for sharing it with me :) Your eye for light and colour and setting is... well... spectacular.
Sara has a way of capturing better photos than we have ever been able to take! She spends the time to bring out the colours and sharpen the images afterwards which is amazing! The best photographer/graphic editor and designer I know! She can shoot our family again anytime! Thanks Sara!
Sara did such an amazing job with my portrait session! Amazing photos and we had so much fun! Beautiful photography, amazing use of colour. :)
Sara's photos captured my daughter better than I could have imagined. She has a strong intuition as a photographer—she comes up with great ideas and knows exactly how to execute them to create stunning photos. Her work is fantastic—she is a very talented photographer and I highly recommend her.
I had a fun shoot with Sara to showcase a product review, she was awesome at getting my daughter relaxed, silly and comfortable. I stood back and let the magic happen and have been so thrilled with the photos so far, can't wait to work together on future projects.
