LOVE LOVE LOVE

I cannot say how much I love Sara’s podcast. You can tell they are being authentically themselves and it feels like listening to a friend.

As a newbie who just started her photography biz, I appreciate Sara’s guidance on just being yourself and to stop trying to be and offer all of the things to appeal to the masses.

Thank you Sara!

YOU NEED SARA IN YOUR LIFE

I have looked up to Sara since I started my photography business over four years ago. She has always been approachable, kind and eager to share insight long before her podcast. TRUST ME when I say her information is invaluable. Every time I listen to one of her podcast episodes, I feel inspired. She also has this way of connecting with you even over a podcast recording! Thank you, Sara, for always being so transparent, real and generous with your insight - YOU ARE ONE OF A KIND!

So helpful and genuinely nice to listen to!

I LOVE this podcast! As a photographer, I'm always looking to learn more and Sara has helped me so much just from listening while I edit. One thing that I really want to note is her voice! If you're like me, a good voice is crucial to being able to listen to a podcast. Saras voice reminds me of... your favourite aunt who is full of the best advice but is also comforting, a little bit silly and honest. She just wants to genuinely help others. Shine and Thrive was the perfect name choice! I could go on and on. Also note: I've never left a review on a podcast before but I googled how to do it JUST so I could leave this one :)
