WHAT PAST CLIENTS ARE SAYING

 
When I first started my business, I didn’t have a huge portfolio and I knew people wouldn’t take me seriously unless I had good images that really told the story of my brand. Sandra was able to use her personal brand of magic by taking my raw ideas and creating imagery that showed my audience that I was legit and that my business was legit. I have doubled my bookings and even doubled my prices since my branding shoot with Sandra and my calendar is booked out for the next 5 months!! I feel confident that I can command those high prices because I am worth every penny I charge. I’ve already made back my 4 figure investment in my images (and then some!)
— Michelle, MIshku Studio
My beautiful brand images after working with Sandra have allowed me to raise my prices by 30%. I have booked five times more clients and I have more bookings in the pipeline - all of which are with my ideal clients! I can now pick and choose the clients I want to take on, which has made a world of difference for my work-life balance with my family. Never in my wildest dreams did I think this was possible!
— Sheri, Sheri McMahon Photography
My life has totally changed now that I have these amazing brand images seen through Sandra’s eyes. I used to feel bad about charging for my work and seriously thought no-one would want to pay the kind of prices that I wanted to charge because I had nothing to show for it. But working with Sandra has been a total game changer. I feel like I became professional overnight! Not only have I gone up a level and elevated my brand, I can finally charge what I’m worth instead of always under cutting myself to book clients! I have now increased my prices by 10% and I don’t feel bad about it!

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

 
One of the challenges in working with perishables is finding the time and the right backdrop to photograph my work. Often I won’t have a free moment to do so until I’m on site where the backdrop choices are limited. Sandra’s boards have come in handy in these situations where I want a clean shot. I’ve propped them up behind arrangements, cakes and placed buttonholes on them. They are easily transported and come in a range of beautiful tones and textures. I would highly recommend Sandra’s beautiful boards to any florist.
— Cara, Trille Floral
I’m so happy that Sandra has finally put together these amazing and very high quality textured boards. As a wedding photographer, it can always be stressful and time consuming showing up at a wedding and not being able to find a backdrop that matches with the details of their big day. Sandra’s boards are the secret to perfect and consistent details at every wedding. Not only are they portable, but she creates them in so many versatile colours that you can’t go wrong. Once you have the details in place, you can crop in with your camera for the perfect backdrop.
— David, We Are Origami Photography
Sandra’s styling surfaces are absolutely amazing. The craftmanship and quality is outstanding and I love the fact that my styling surface is a one off design. No two surfaces are made the same which makes my work always unique.
— Sheri, Sheri McMahon Photography
