Photographer seeker,

I would like to recommend Michelle Sauer for your next photography need. She is very excited about the world of photography and is determined and always willing to learn more. During my experience with Michelle, I was amazed by her commitment and dedication to getting the best shots that she could.

Michelle photographed our three children, ranging in ages from 14 years down to 2 years (quite a dynamic). I am so pleased that each child’s personality and uniqueness was represented in the photos. Michelle captured the innocence yet mischievous side of our 2 year old boy, the silliness and sweetness of our 6 year old daughter, and the fun and grown up side of our 14 year old daughter. I am so grateful that I now have these moments in our children’s lives forever.

Michelle will also be photographing our entire family and I know she will do a fantastic job; I will not hesitate to use her again. I can confidently say that she will do a great job for you also.

If you would like to contact me or have any questions, please feel free to email me at lisansteve2@msn.com.

I was very happy with my two-year-old daughter’s session with Michelle. My daughter, Ellie, is very shy and takes quite a while to warm up to new situations. Being a mother of three and a former preschool teacher, this was no problem for Michelle. She gave her plenty of time to warm up and was very encouraging to her the entire time. She was also very flexible. When Ellie wanted to go to a new area or activity, Michelle followed her along and came up with new picture ideas depending on what Ellie wanted to do. I think these are some of the reasons Michelle was able to capture my daughter’s true personality.
Thanks for the great pictures, Michelle!
