I've seen a couple of postings asking for a photographer, and I have an amazing person to recommend. Having needed a photographer for our family, our company's website/brochure, and my wedding, I know how hard it is to find a really good person for a reasonable rate. Sara Goetz will come to your home or place of business, and she takes beautiful photos that not only look professional but incredibly natural. She has taken photos of babies, moms, families, weddings, and most recently is going to do photo shoots for our company's brochure. She has experience providing the image in whatever print or digital format you need. I can't say enough about how easy she is to work with and what a great eye she has.
