  • Sharie makes taking family portraits actually fun! We were so worried about having a photo session that was forced or felt contrived. She has a remarkable eye and an ability to create pictures that bring out true personalities. Her appreciation for authenticity and art shines in her photographs. Sharie is also extremely versatile in different styles of photography. We cherish the pictures that she has taken of our kids from nursery school to high school!

  • For our 8-year wedding anniversary my husband and I decided to take some professional photos. We had the pleasure of working with Shelby who does excellent photography! Shelby was very tuned in to the feeling we wanted to portray and she did an amazing job of capturing our essence. We love the fun, love, and sweetness that comes through in each of our photos.

  • I to acknowledge the beautiful pictures taken by master photographer “Sharie Cohen” When we talked about doing the shoot, I didn’t want to do outdoor shots. But she is a master of the perfect outdoor lighting–she shoots in the last light of the day, what she calls the “Sweet Light,” so we went down to the beach right at sunset and I am very glad. They are the best portraits ever taken of me!
