Introduction: **Attention - October is completely booked! Please contact me for any bookings November and Beyond!** Everyone has a story to tell...Yours is the best one yet! Hello! My name is Sara McIngvale. I am a photographer in CT that specializes in creative and candid portrait photography of all kinds. I believe that the beauty of photography is that it manifests itself somewhere between past and present, creating a tangible memory that you can cherish for the years to come. My passion is to illuminate the art in the celebration of life. I want to get to know you so that the photographs encapsulate exactly who you are! I strive to capture images that tell genuine stories and I love collaborating to make something unique, personal, and real. Here's what to expect from me: - From your first inquiry, I will take the time to get to know who YOU are. We can share ideas on the perfect location that holds meaning to you or your vision. - I will provide you with styling and preparation tips to ease your mind! - At the session I will guide you through poses and prompts that look and feel natural. - Afterwards, I will send you edits in color and black and white, retouched and beautiful with all the post processing requests you have. I currently work in and around Southern Connecticut but I am always happy to travel to you!

I scheduled a couples photoshoot as a birthday gift. Sara was prompt and responsive! She really helped us pose and made us comfortable. We love the photos that she took.

We’re actually not really finished - we don’t have our “final products” yet - but we loved working with Sara - she made our family photo shoot really fun, and we loved the imaginative and very warm photos we got as a result!

It was a pleasure working with Sara. Not only were the photos great, she was very flexible in working with us and helped us so much in getting great photos of our two very young kids. I would recommend her to anyone.

Sara weaves magic through the lens, she is hands down the best photographer that we have worked with. She made sure that we were always comfortable and relaxed during the shoot while capturing all the shots that she needed. When the photos arrived, we were fascinated by how well she played with light and captured us so beautifully. She also delivered a great set of edited images and the assignment was great value for us. Sara, you will be our go to photographer now on. Thank you for giving us so many wonderful images and memories. ❤️

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Additional rates apply for travel outside of Southern CT. I also offer to shoot with 35mm film and polaroid for an additional fee (supplies and development) **Discounts** Students and Military get 15% off! Refer a friend and get your next shoot 50% off!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first step is getting to know you! Each shoot is completely customized to your vision. I often ask for any inspiration you may have -- whether it is a style, location, other artwork, music playlist, occasion or anything else that could steer me in the direction of your idea. Once we have the gist of it , we decide the date, time, and location. I'm generally available all hours of the day and night to cater to you! After all the details are discussed, I will send you a contract and an invoice for a small deposit that will later be applied to your total. Next, we meet up to shoot and create some magic! Lastly, I will send you a gallery with proofs for you to select to be edited. After you choose your favorites I will send you another folder with the edited images. Jobs vary, but my general turn around time is 7-14 business days.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    BFA in Photography from The University of Hartford 8 Years and counting as a Freelance Photographer 2018-Current Senior photographer/editor at Luxury Resale Network 2016-2018 Photographer's Assistant to Ellen Carey 2015-2018 Lab and Technical Assistant at The Hartford Art School
