Sadie James Photography, LLC

I LOVE my clients and sometimes I am fortunate when they share some of their "happy thoughts" with me, so I thought I would pass them on.... :)


Check out what our Fans on Yelp! Have to say too!


We were referred to Cheryl of Sadie James Photography after I saw a friend's unique and gorgeous baby photos. My daughter was hoping for a senior picture that was not just the traditional studio or cap and gown portrait. After looking at more of Cheryl's  photos, we knew she was the one! We drove up after school, hasty and rushed. Cheryl warmly greeted us and made us both feel welcome and comfortable. She asked my daughter some questions, figured out her personality, and then styled her to look beautiful but still natural and herself. We went to two different outdoor locations and the photos turned out amazing! Cheryl took her time and was able to make her feel at ease so that her personality shone through. The range of effects, backgrounds, lighting and moods of the photos made it impossible to pick a favorite. We will return as often as we can for these unique documents of our family's important moments. - Kati B.


Dear Cheryl,

I wanted to take a minute to thank you for the gift you have given me and my family with your photos.  We have had “professional” pictures taken many times, but this is the first time we have had such a memorable experience with such fantastic results!  I have to admit, I did not quite “get” all of the clothing recommendations, on location props, etc, but WOW!  There is not a person who has seen these photos that has not commented that they are some of the best photos they have ever seen.  In fact, I had a flight attendant on a plane ask me if I would show her all of the blog pictures when she saw my screensaver, and then she asked me to show them again to some other flight attendants!  I am already envisioning next year’s photos, and cannot wait to see what new tricks you have up your sleeve.  You are professional, caring and a genuine pleasure to work with on all levels.  Thank you for a gift that will stay in our extended family for years to come.  - Lorraine M.


My experience with Sadie James Photography has been awesome!  I came to the studio when my baby was 5 days old and Cheryl was great with baby Jackson!  I loved the pictures and the announcement was amazing!  I cannot tell you how many people have commented that  it was the cutest baby announcement they had ever seen.  I cannot wait for my next session; I cannot wait for my Christmas cards; and I cannot wait to see the book at the end of all my sessions!  The memories we are creating will last a lifetime.  - Kerie R.


We purchased the baby plan 18 months ago, (can't believe its already been that long!), with the hope that we would have great pictures to capture the first year of our daughter Abigail's life, and we have been impressed after every session with the quality of the photography. We just recently had to choose 20 pictures for our baby book, and it was so difficult to choose only 20 shots! Every picture is so precious to us, and Cheryl is such a great photographer, we are so happy to have these pictures from such a wonderful time for our family. We knew Cheryl was the one for us when our newborn had an "accident" all over her studio backdrop at our first session! What other photographer would have not only laughed, but said, "I wish I could have captured that on film!" If that is not the epitome of patience, I don't know the meaning of the word! We feel we have found a family photographer for years to come.  -Carolyn C.


My husband and I took our son Gunner to get his newborn pictures and family pictures taken at the beginning of December 2009.  We had a great experience.  Cheryl had great ideas to make his pictures unique and they turned out great!  She took her time and made the session fun and knew how to work with my son to ensure he was comfortable.  The family pictures all turned out awesome also.  We have received compliments on all!  We also did a holiday card/ birth announcement and Cheryl was able to get them back to us in time to send them out to our family and friends before the holidays.  I definitely plan on coming back!!  Thank you Cheryl! -Britney L.


Cheryl your the best! We love your pictures. They are always beautiful and you are very talented at what you do.  Thanks-The Hobgood's


Cheryl actually shot my boudoir session for me. She made what is normally considered an awkward and uncomfortable experience, totally fun and relaxing.  It was also a very empowering experience.  She also gave me pointers prior to my shoot, such as how to wear my makeup and what to wear.  Not only that, she even had some props (such as jewerly) to add to the photos.  She spent hours with me, guiding me on how to pose. Ultimately, I LOVE how my album came out.  She did such a great job shooting AND editing. Needless to say, my now-husband loved his wedding gift! - Elsa F.


I have had the most amazing experience with Sadie James Photography. I purchased a Baby Plan package from Cheryl, and was able to capture each milestone of my son’s life from newborn through his first year. Cheryl’s style, technique and ability to work with children are outstanding. She is flexible and caters to each clients needs. I have also had Cheryl do my Christmas Cards two years in a row and have gotten so many compliments on how cute they were. Everybody was asking, “Who does your pictures?” I will use Cheryl for any photography needs I have because I know she will capture the moment and do a great job.

I purchased a baby plan for my son and could not be happier.  The only frustration I have ever had is narrowing down which pictures to order! We have had 2 particularly challenging photo sessions with my son but you would never know it by the pictures.  Except for one, where he is throwing a total fit after an outfit change.  I love that picture and it is framed in my living room.  Cheryl has great patience with little ones and a talent for capturing the right moment.  I get so excited whenever Austin or my niece has a shoot with Cheryl, I check the website constantly for the first glimpse!
