Sandra, thank you for capturing some of the happiest moments in our lives. Our family will cherish the photos you took and look back on them often. We hope you will be able to take more photos of us in the future as our family grows.
Our family had the great pleasure of being photographed by Sandra in the fall of 2013 at beautiful Riley Park in Calgary. We are the proud parents of two beautiful twin girls aged 5. We had never had professional photos done before, but Sandra came highly recommended. She was great in the days leading up to our shoot… she helped us choose a location, and also had some good tips for what to wear. The photo shoot itself surprised us all! I think my little one summed it up best by commenting at the end of it all, “That was fun! Can we do it again sometime?”. Sandra was wonderful. She took the time to show the girls her equipment and give them some time to warm up to her before she started. She was just great with all of us! Mom and dad were a bit stiff and nervous at the beginning too, but her warm, kind, and fun approach put us all at ease and we ended up with some beautiful family and individual shots that we will treasure for ever. I’m looking forward to making this an annual event for our family. Thanks, Sandra!!
If it weren’t for Sandra and her talent and patience, we wouldn’t have had any pictures of our twins once they came home from the NICU! At the time when Sandra first took pictures of our family, our twin boys were 2 1/2 months old and our daugher was just over 3 years old- a tricky combination at the best of times. What sold us on Sandra was the fact that she was willing to come to us and she was happy to work around feedings, meltdowns and snack breaks if anything came up. She is truly a kind and patient soul who loves to capture her subjects in their natural states- some of our favourite pictures from the shoot were when our kids were not always the most cooperative. Sandra has a great eye for knowing how to capture those special moments and you will not be disappointed in choosing her to preserve your memories. I HIGHLY recommend using Sandra for your next session!
Our family photo shoot with Sandra Miller was exceptional! We had 7 adults and 3 young children. Sandra took the time needed to make sure we had all of our special moments captured without us ever feeling under pressure or rushed. She puts children right at ease and is very attentive to their needs. She has a positive energy that touches everyone and makes the experience so enjoyable. The photo package we received was above and beyond expectations and to the upmost standard of professionalism. We were all very impressed and thankful!
Sandra is not only a great photographer, she is a great person. Being a mother of a young one herself, she understands the delicate balance of keeping the subject child happy and engaged, but at the same time making sure that the child does not get tired and irritable. Sandra brought toys for my son to play with during the photo shoot and he was thrilled, as was I. Her use of light and colour is wonderful. Even in the face of a not so cooperative husband, she was calm, cool and collected and just kept smiling. I recommend her 100%.
Sandra is one of those people that has a gift. She was born to take pictures. This girl has an eye! I had been admiring her photos for quite some time and finally asked her if she would have time to take some family pictures for us. It was a last minute request. Sandra was immediately accommodating and fit us into her busy schedule at the last minute so we could capture the beautiful foliage of the season. Our session was fun and relaxed. We never felt rushed. The finished product was absolutely fantastic. So good in fact, that my cousin spotted them on-line and came all the way from Edmonton for a session. Such a professional and always looking to perfect her craft, she also welcomes feedback and suggestions to help her learn and grow. She is amazing!
We have been lucky to have had Sandra come into our home to capture precious moments of our family. We have twice the fun in our home with twins and Sandra was here when they were 6 weeks old and again at four months of age. The dedication, passion and patience she has with little ones, our four legged furry family member and with over tired parents shows in her photography. We have some great pictures to always cherish and it is all thanks to Sandra and ShutterBEAN Photography.
