Testimonials

“Sarah, we are so lucky to have found you!  You have an amazing gift!  You have captured so many beautiful pictures for our family!  You were so caring when we brought our special needs son to you for his newborn pictures.  You gave us pictures of a smiling, tearless one year old, when I only remember a session with an uncooperative child.  The most near and dear thing you have done for us is when you met us at Lurie Children’s Hospital with little notice to take family pictures before a major surgery for our son.  I will never consider using another photographer, and can’t wait for our next session!”  – L.J.    (Plainfield)

“Thank you so much Sarah for the recent pictures. Getting my family together is sometimes hard and the guys aren’t ever excited about family pictures! By working together with a list it went so well and the guys never complained once! Also, we thought we might have our hands full with my niece. She normally HATES having her pictures taken. You did so well with her that by the end she was asking you to take pictures of her! Even her own mother was surprised. The entire family loved all the pictures, you can’t beat the price, and the turnaround time was awesome! I already have printed pictures up around the house. You can definitely count on me for referrals!”   – L.D.     (Crest Hill)

“I was extremely impressed with Sarah’s ability to make my two “difficult” daughters feel comfortable during our family photo session. I am forever grateful to her for the moments she was able to capture. Her price and turn-around time were just added bonuses. We will definitely be using her again, and soon.”        – T.W.   (Montgomery)

“Sarah made our wedding very memorable. She was an absolute pleasure to work, very friendly, outgoing and everyone loved her! We wouldn’t hesitate to hire her again, she is a natural professional and captures AMAZING photos!”      – R.M.     (Round Lake Beach)

“I was ecstatic when I learned that Sarah was going to pursue photography. I remember talking to her about it one evening and she had a smile from ear to ear as she stated she won a photo contest. She showed me the picture she submitted and it was gorgeous. Right then and there, I knew Sarah had a gift and couldn’t wait for her to get a hold of my family.

For me, I get so excited to have family pictures taken. I plan and coordinate the outfits, I prep the kids, and do all the background leg work to make it successful. Even though I always hope that my three young children cooperate, that has never been the case. What makes our photo shoot a success is Sarah. She is extremely patient with the kids and knows all the right things to do and say to get a great picture. I have had Sarah take pictures of my family three times, and each time my goal is to get one “good” picture. Well, Sarah has always exceeded my expectations! When she gives me the disk of the edited pictures, there are so many pictures to choose from and I really don’t know how she does it! I have always been extremely happy with Sarah and wouldn’t go anywhere else to get our pictures done. She is the BEST!

Not only is she extremely patient and kind with the kids, her attention to detail goes beyond words. She is prompt with her responses when scheduling appointments, she knows the area and gives insight as to where to have the pictures taken, she is on time which is so important to me because of my young kids, she has great props that make her photos unique, and the finished product is delivered in a timely fashion.                                                                                                                   Sarah has always gone above and beyond my expectations. I couldn’t be happier with her and her work! I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for a true professional to take pictures of their family. I am already looking forward to our next photo shoot! ”    L.A.  (Plainfield)

“We used Sarah Jastre Photography for my maternity photos and after we saw how wonderful they turned out, we booked our son’s 3 month, 6 month and will continue throughout the first year. The pictures were absolutely stunning! Not only were the pictures everything and more we were hoping for, Sarah herself is a pleasure to work with. Looking forward to many more sessions!”    –Sarah and Chris
