Keep reading below for what clients have to say about working with Sarah, their overall Miles of Smiles Photography experience, and what their artwork means to them.
"We were wowed by the family & individual family portraits that Sarah created for friends of ours & were hoping to get some similarly gorgeous images for our home. Sarah definitely delivered! The Studio was charming & felt like a wonderland of beautiful, soft things for baby. We had a fun time at our session & Sarah & Lauren did a fabulous job of keeping the older kids (5 and 3) focused during newborn photos. Sarah covered about every base we could think of... She runs a very professional operation. The boys didn't want to leave the Studio when it was all over!
At the Order & Design Appointment, Sarah did a great job helping us to find the images & products that worked for us. Seeing her artwork displayed in our home brings such a smile to our faces & captures the love among these kiddos. We had an amazing time and treasure our new artwork!"
"Sarah's newborn images are amazing!! Sarah is super friendly and very accommodating. The overall images and editing are beautifully done. From initial contact to followup, she masters it all! The Studio is perfect. An intimate space for your family to relax and enjoy the session! Sarah is awesome with kiddos and especially wonderful with newborns. She is patient and comforting and she has an array of amazing props and clothing. I didn't have to bring a thing!
Sarah has created some amazing images of our family. I love seeing the artwork in our home, as it reminds me of that special moment in time that passes very quickly. My husband has also commented multiple times about how easy the sessions are! We love the Baby's 1st Year Plan! I even added an extra session (when baby was 4 months old) because you only have this short amount of time that babies stay this little. The hardest part is to decide which images to choose because there are so many good ones. She has so many cool artwork options. Keep up the amazing, quality work!"
-The C Family
"We enjoyed another exceptional experience working with Sarah and Lauren! After scheduling an outdoor session through Sarah, we met up with Lauren in a beautiful park setting.
Our family of five had a terrific time during the session; Lauren’s cheerfulness is contagious! She very skillfully kept our children’s attention and moved us smoothly through our various shots — no small feat with a 5 year old, a 3 year old, and an 8 month old who refused to nap on the drive over! Lauren captured beautiful, lighthearted photos of our family that we will cherish for many years to come.
After our session with Lauren, Sarah seamlessly resumed her role by curating lovely fine art options for the photos from our shoot. Ordering through Sarah was easy as always — the only difficult part is figuring out space for all of the gorgeous photos!
The detailed communications from Sarah and her team regarding how the session will run, suggestions for outfits, things to bring, etc. are incredibly helpful for busy families to get the most out of their session. Thank you again ladies!" -The A Family
"Sarah - You did an amazing job... I’m so happy that we chose you to do the newborn photography for our little one. The finesse with which you handled our little peanut and got every picture perfect is something that amazes me to this day.
I keep looking at these photographs and it brings back those wonderful memories of the first few weeks after my delivery. Thanks for capturing these precious moments of our life for us which will be cherished forever." -S
"Oh my! Sarah you are absolutely AMAZING. This morning reminded me why you are our very favorite photographer. Our morning (with our newborn) had been totally crazy before we arrived, but you made sure that our shoot was calm and FUN.
Plus, I was SUPER impressed with the variety of shots you accomplished in such a short time, and that my less than cooperative little one didn't phase you a bit.
Thank you SO much for capturing these precious family moments for us- I can't wait to hang/display more of your beautiful work in our home. Again, thank you thank you THANK YOU!"
-The W Family
"Sarah is so welcoming and organized! She knows how to personalize each session to ultimately create beautiful artwork for our home. Our two young girls love Sarah, and each session has been so fun and memorable. We laugh a lot at sessions! The Ordering Appointments are very organized, and Sarah really helps us think through what would suit our needs best. We love having our family as artwork throughout our home. It's such a blessing to see these images every day on our walls!
The Studio is very clean and organized, and she has the cutest props. For our girls' newborn sessions, it was amazing to witness Sarah's magic with the babies. She's the "Baby Whisperer" holding them gently, and placing them in the sweetest poses all while they sleep peacefully and comfortably.
We did Baby's 1st Year Plan for both babies. The first year of growth is lightning fast, so capturing the stages that first year are so neat to look back on! Now that our kids are 3 and 6, they love looking back on their own Heirloom Albums of their first year, too. We also love the Canvas Wall Displays!"
I chose Miles of Smiles Photography for my Maternity and Newborn photos because I felt comfortable working with Sarah. She is extremely organized and professional, and this is reflected in her photography and communication.
She made me feel at ease during my Maternity photos, and she knew exactly how to pose our baby at the Newborn Session. (Oh - and her props are the best!!)
I loved the clothing and props available for mom and baby at The Studio, too.
Thank you for being so professional and taking such good care of our baby during her photos!
I felt like you were capturing a moment in our lives that we will want to remember forever!"
-The H Family
"My daughter-in-law had used Miles of Smiles Photography for her Maternity and Newborn portraits, and the beauty and quality of those photos was outstanding. So when I decided to gather the grown kids and their families for a big photo session, Sarah was my immediate choice.
Anyone who sees our photos is immediately drawn to them. They "ooh and ahh" over the feeling of family fun and love that Sarah captured in the photos. We had so much fun during the session, and Sarah made us feel relaxed and very natural. Sarah knows how to keep everyone happy... from the one year olds to the sixty-somethings!
Sarah was an expert at keeping me prepared for each step in the process. I knew right up front about all of the various products she offered and what we may want from the session. The Order & Design Appointment was equally fun. Seeing all of the gorgeous photos which she expertly guides you through so you can make your choices was a joy as well.
We enjoyed the area where we did the session, and Sarah managed to compose every combo imaginable of our families and the result are gorgeous photos that we will treasure forever. Our children love having the individual family shots and also the larger grouping of the extended family. And I love having beautiful photos around our home reminding me of that fun day spent all together.
Sarah is a super organized, high-energy, people person. Easy to work with in every way. Our photo session was a joy. While we all enjoyed the fun of posing and watching the various groupings and participating in the process, SEEING the results was the biggest thrill.
I was so delighted by the results. She captured the smiles of our grand babies, and that will be such a treasure for us forever. She captured the love and tenderness of both of our kids with their little families. There is something so beautiful about seeing your child with their child.
Watching Sarah work, it's obvious that she loves what she does, and she knows what she's doing. Seeing the results of her work, it's obvious that she has the eye of an artist and knows how to capture the best in her subjects." -TH
"Sarah's photos are amazing, and we were drawn to her because she does Newborn AND Siblings/Family shots in her Studio Newborn Sessions. We had the most amazing experience!
We all had fun, and Sarah worked magic getting 2 toddlers to smile at the camera while holding a sleeping newborn! Her communication is awesome. She is proactive in sending details, she smoothly coordinated the session, the Order & Design Appointment, and delivery of our Canvas artwork, images, and prints.
Her Studio is perfect! She and her Assistant are so professional yet fun and loving. Our kids felt at ease, and the whole experience was fun for the family! She took AMAZING photos of our newborn, toddler, siblings, and family. I feel she perfectly captured everyone's personality.
Sarah was an absolute joy to work with! It is obvious from the beginning that she loves what she does, she is focused on every detail, and makes sure everyone is relaxed and having fun.
Sarah took AMAZING photos that we will cherish always!"
- The E Family
"Sarah is so talented, kind and fun to work with. Our family has absolutely loved working with Sarah for our family pictures and we feel truly lucky to have found her. Sarah has been working with our family since our kids were 1 ½ & 3 ½ years old whom are now 9 and 11 years old.
Sarah’s customized approach to each family makes taking family photos effortless and her creations are truly priceless! I would hands down recommend Sarah at Miles of Smiles Photography without any hesitation. Book with Miles of Smiles for your family photos; you won't be disappointed !"
-The B Family
"We are so happy we chose Sarah with Miles of Smiles Photography to capture newborn photos of our daughter and family!!
Every time I visited the doctor for my prenatal appointments, I would admire Sarah's beautiful photographs on the clinic walls. I knew that my family needed lovely photos like these to freeze tie and capture moments with our new arrival. After looking at Sarah's website and gallery of gorgeous photographs, I knew that Miles of Smiles Photography was the photographer for our family.
Sarah is not only an incredibly talented photographer, but is also very kind and fun to work with!! Being a mother herself, Sarah knows what families are looking for in their important milestone photos, and does a great job of getting young children to look their best in front of the camera!
It was such a joy working with Sarah, from booking our first appointment to receiving our finished products, which she delivered to our home. Additionally, we knew exactly how to prepare for, and what to expect during our photo session, as she provided a very thorough information sheet beforehand, which made our session very comfortable and fun.
Sarah made me feel at home and at ease immediately upon arriving at The Studio. She guided us through each photo with specific instructions and poses. Overall, it was a wonderful and happy experience for my family, as we knew we were creating beautiful photos that would be seen by generations to come.
The Order & Design Appointment was equally pleasant and professional. Sarah is so warm and welcoming, and very helpful when it came to explaining all of the ordering options and helping us select the best images for our needs.
I love our beautiful photos and really enjoyed working with Sarah! I look forward to working with her again soon."
-The J Family
"Our newborn photos are amazing.
Sarah is extremely thorough in her communication. The Studio is amazing, and Sarah is truly talented in capturing the sweetness and innocence of our baby. Sarah and her Assistant were wonderful, patient, and kind. They made it easy for camera shy people like myself.
I loved watching parts of my baby's session. It made me feel so proud. Sarah was so sweet and kind to my baby and knew how to soothe and pose her so gently. My favorite thing was how meticulous she was in posing her to get the most perfect angles and poses. I loved the props!
The Order & Design Appointment was very organized. The photos by Sarah will be memories that we keep for a lifetime! We look forward to our next sessions in the Baby's 1st Year Plan and using Sarah in the future as our family gets older. Thank you for capturing our memories!"
"Sarah - we loved doing the maternity and newborn sessions with you! Thank you for capturing these lovely moments so beautifully for us. You are an amazing professional and person. Every single image just reinforces the feeling in me that, "what a blessing she is and what a grace motherhood is!" Thank you!"
-A, M & N
"We adore all of the photos and are grateful that we had them taken. Babies grow up way too quickly, and capturing them in photos when they are so tiny is just priceless. You will never get this time back, and it is awesome to remember how tiny they once were.
I love Sarah's genuine love for good photos and her adorable photos reveal her expertise with the camera. There are so many cute photos to choose from at the Order & Design Appointment. Love every photo! Sarah guides you through every step of the appointment. The memories are priceless as you look at them on your wall!
Taking family photos can be stressful, but Sarah makes it a fun experience. Her photography experience and task oriented nature makes the sessions go smoothly.
We have enjoyed our experiences with Miles of Smiles Photography."
-The L Family
"I saw my friend's family Christmas photos and thought, 'WOW those look amazing!' I asked her who took them and she referred me to Sarah.
Sarah was patient, funny, and professional. I was a bit nervous about how my 2-year-old would do because I knew his attention span was limited. But Sarah was a PRO at keeping him entertained.
Sarah's communication throughout the whole process was straightforward. I loved that she asked questions in advance (in her client paperwork) to get to know my family. Understanding what your client wants to achieve in advance is so important, which makes the photo shoot that much more enjoyable because everyone knows what to expect when you arrive to your session.
Our Order & Design Appointment was originally supposed to be in person, but due to the Coronavirus changes, we had to have it online. Sarah asked me to be patient, as this was her first time using new software for the Ordering Appointment online. But she was a ROCKSTAR! I would never have known that was her first time (using new software for ordering purposes).
I really loved when she showed me EXACTLY what MY EXACT photos would look like on MY Wall. I had emailed Sarah a photo of the wall at my house where I planned to hang them, so seeing this I knew how it would look in advance. I'd highly recommend her!"
"Sarah's extensive experience and expertise in photographing newborns, and her professional and kind demeanor were all reasons we selected Miles of Smiles Photography for our family.
You'll never regret the investment. Those first few weeks fly by so quickly and you'll find yourself cherishing your newborn photos, as it reminds you of all of those special moments and feelings you had together. There are so many beautiful photos in our collection, it truly is impossible to pick favorites. My husband and I still say we can feel how happy we were that day just by looking back at our photos and the artwork on our walls.
Sarah is an excellent communicator and is probably one of the most detail oriented and organized people I've ever met. We knew exactly what to expect walking into our sessions and follow up appointments.
The Studio is extremely clean and cozy. We felt relaxed the entire time Sarah had our baby girl in the Studio. She has an incredible selection of timeless photo options and props, and she and her Assistant do an amazing job of guiding you through the session. Sarah moves and shoots extremely efficiently during the session. We gave Sarah an idea of color schemes, ideas that we liked, and she took it and ran with it.
Sarah is extremely easy to work with. She is down to earth yet extremely professional. She makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. As a brand new mom, I was self conscious, and Sarah made me feel so beautiful and assured me I would love the photos - and I did!
We are so happy we joined the "Baby's 1st Year Plan." It is such a unique way to capture all of the changes that happen in the first year.
The preparation information from Sarah was extremely helpful and new to us. We have never had a photographer ask us questions about what WE wanted in our shoot. Also, sitting down after the shoot (at the Order & Design Appointment) and methodically going through the pictures was new to us but extremely helpful - and makes it so much easier! It felt so good to have that one-on-one time with Sarah and to get her input. As always, she's extremely organized and will help you with every step along the way.
Sarah - you went above and beyond for our family and we are so grateful for you, your Assistant, and our family's art."

"I saw Sarah's work (displayed at my OB/GYN office) and loved it. Once I saw the finished product, I knew we'd love our purchase and we do. Communication was great, and we felt super prepared for our session.
Working with Sarah was a dream. The way she handled our baby and posed him was so gentle. She made posing for family pictures a breeze. She's very easy going and fun to work with.
There were so many great images it was hard to pick! The work of art she created was amazing. We love our canvases and prints on the wall. She's the best.
The images Sarah creates are amazing. You will want her to photograph your whole family for life."
-The G Family
From her Dad:
"The absolute best photographer in Austin! Schedule early and prepare to be amazed! We cannot thank Sarah enough for highlighting our daughter's milestone of life!"
From her Mom:
"Sarah was filled with creative ideas and very organized in helping us create beautiful memories of our daughter! You cannot put a price tag on perfection!
Sarah's communication was spot on, and she was very accommodating. The images were unique and highlighted our precious daughter and family. "
"Hands down Sarah and her work are awesome! We have used Sarah for several sessions now, starting with our maternity and newborn sessions, a couple mini-sessions, and are now in the process of scheduling a cake smash and lifestyle session. We highly recommend her.
Sarah makes my entire family comfortable in front of the camera. I feel like I have known her forever. She is more than patient with my exuberant 5-year old who never stops moving and his camera shy parents. She goes above and beyond to get great shots.
We love her work. Pretty important qualifications, I think, for someone who is capturing memory snapshots of your family that you will keep forever. Speaking from experience: Embrace the camera and don't lose this time."
-The H Family
"Highly impressed with Sarah's work! We were equally impressed with how amazing she was with our infant and our two older children. Our family truly enjoyed the entire process.
Sarah is a dream to work with - as well as extremely talented. There are many beautiful options to choose from.
We are so happy we went with Miles of Smiles Photography, as we now have some truly priceless pieces of art!"
-The V Family
"I love how organized Sarah was. The information on how to prepare for the session was clear and I felt like I knew what to expect during the session. Love how Sarah tailored to the baby's needs, and I felt comfortable that Henry was in good hands. I started using a couple of her calming tricks at home! I appreciated Sarah helping me pick which photos work the best together. I can't wait to display them in our home!
Sarah was amazingly friendly and down to earth. It was fun to watch all of our baby's different poses and outfits! Loved how confident Sarah was in her posing of our baby. It made me happy that Sarah saw the beauty in our baby and had the talent to bring it out in her photos. I was happy with my experience. Sarah is organized, experienced, friendly and very knowledgeable."
-The D Family
"When I first started researching photographers for our upcoming little one's arrival, the options were endless. Since word of mouth recommendations have always been my best friend, I asked a coworker who recently welcomed a little boy.
I contacted Sarah and was amazed by the images on her website. I knew I wanted a photographer that captured how precious little ones are but not in a cheesy way. I also wanted to make sure we got a few family photos which was not a common option amongst the other choices I had contacted.
Sarah's use of props were simple and didn't distract focus away from our little one. My husband and I loved being able to watch Sarah work, as beyond family and nurses, no one else had handled our precious cargo! We both felt so at ease with Sarah posing our little one as she is beyond cautious.
When it came to viewing our final images, both my mom and I were brought to tears with the beautiful images Sarah captured. I didn't think I would have a hard time picking my favorite images but narrowing it down was incredibly difficult as we were blown away by how perfectly Sarah captured our daughter.
We have actually been told by so many people who received our birth announcements that the photos look like they belong in a baby magazine! I would not hesitate and have already recommended Sarah to other people looking for an awesome photographer, particularly when welcoming a new arrival into the world. Working with Sarah was easy and fun!"
"The Baby's 1st Year Plan made the most financial sense, pics were great, and Sarah has all the props and outfits/accessories to choose from so it is a huge added value also.
Sarah is excellent in working with kids.
Thank you - I LOVE it all! Pretty much everything hanging in our house is from you!!! I have saved a few open frames too to print pics so once all that is hung our entire home really will be your work."
-The B Family
"The whole experience was great from beginning to end. Sarah was so great in being flexible with us when baby Charlie was getting his molars in and was not feeling well, (so we rescheduled the date). I loved that the entire shoot was done in 58 minutes!
We were thrilled once we got to see the images and all the grandparents were blown away! Everyone asked how Sarah got him to pose in so many positions! We did not get newborn photos taken of Charlie and this was really important to me to capture his one year milestone. I now see this as an important investment for our family which is why we scheduled our family holiday photos with Sarah too! Thanks again for everything!!!"

"We first heard about Miles of Smile Photography from the advertisement in our neighborhood newsletter. We decided to contact Sarah for our newborn photo session because of her emphasis in newborn photography. Sarah was very pleasant to work with, from the very first phone call discussing the session through the delivery of our photos.
Initially, we were only going to do the newborn session, but as we were looking at her website in greater detail, we decided we had to have Sarah capture moments throughout our daughter's first year through her Baby's First Year Plan. Her photography is stunning!
We had such a great experience during our session. We were amazed at Sarah's talent and patience! She is very detail oriented, which made our pictures that much more special. We were very pleased with how the pictures turned out and with the products we purchased. We can't wait for our next photo session!"
(Click here for a blog post from their newborn session.)
"I have never met a photographer so kind and motivating in my life. You might feel like you do not know what you are doing (being the subject of a photo shoot), but Sarah really makes you feel comfortable and takes away all the nervousness. She is so creative with her work! I was amazed at how a colorful wall could be used in such a way to make a great photo. Book Sarah now! I promise you, you will not be disappointed."
"Sarah - Thank you for pouring your heart, spirit, talent and love into your artistry. We have been so tremendously blessed and I am very pleased to have had such a pivotal time (Baby's 1st Year Plan/3 sessions + Maternity) for my family captured by your gift.
We will certainly connect with her for our photography desires again."
- The C Family
"We loved our pictures from our last (middle child's) Newborn Session, and wanted the same for our new baby's pictures. Sarah is easy to work with, friendly, and delivers a beautiful product!
You get what you pay for, and the value of having nice family photos is something that we will not regret down the road. I appreciated all the guidance when preparing for the session... from outfit suggestions to having me think through where I want our photos displayed in our home.
Sarah is wonderful when it comes to working with newborns and children. The Studio was adorable and comfortable and we love the final product!
I really love that she incorporates parents and siblings into the Newborn Session. It's a huge reason why I love her newborn sessions so much. We are very happy with the artwork we received.
I love the sibling and family pictures, and capturing our babies when they are babies... but I also love capturing all of us at this point as a new family too. And I loved watching Sarah pose my baby. She made it look so easy, and I know it is not!"
-The D Family
"As intimidating as the thought is about a family photo session, it ended up being SO easy, enjoyable, and very laid back. Sarah was so good with the kids!
We had never had professional pictures done before Sarah. Money was one of the biggest obstacles in ever having a family session done before. But now that we had the artwork up in our house, it is priceless! ("The Trio" wall collection of 3 Canvases is AMAZING!)
The communication from Sarah was incredibly efficient and timely. There wasn't a pose that I wished we had that wasn't captured by Sarah in our session. It was stress free and even my husband didn't mind it. :) Seeing our kids pose together was precious.
It was fantastic!!"
-The Z Family
"We have made it a tradition to have a photo session with our family and children with Sarah. She is so talented and it shows in her photography.
The artwork that she has produced for our home has been timeless and we look at these pieces as art to pass down to our children. Sarah is amazing with our kids, and she can make even the fussiest baby smile and giggle!
The Studio was wonderful... my daughter loved the fun props and outfits.
Sarah is the best. I loved seeing my kids having a great time hamming it up and being silly with Sarah."
