Hey friends!

Before I start, there is a FAQ at the bottom of this page if you don't feel like reading.





I am taking a small photography hiatus in 2022. I will be completing the weddings that are already booked, and still photographing some repeat clients and friends. I will still be pretty select with shooting repeat clients and friends, it will really be based on a month-by-month basis and what I already have going on. My main goal is to drastically slow it down next year; not stop completely. Which is why I am calling it a small hiatus.


I’ll be keeping my website and social medias fresh and updated, but I am not opening bookings for new clients for 2022. I will return to normal business in 2023, but can’t guarantee the complimentary engagement sessions for 2023 weddings (if the session would have to take place in 2022). So if you’re planning a wedding in 2023 or wanting a session that year, you can still reach out to me!


The past two years have been incredibly busy, and taxing. While I am so incredibly thankful and blessed that so many people have trusted me with their pictures, their vacation memories, and their weddings; it was a lot. And really fast. In 2020 I earned 159% more than 2019 and earned 35% more in 2021 compared to 2020! So 251% between 2019 and 2021. I am so appreciative of the business and the amazing people I’ve been able to work with.


I want to share with y'all a few of the reasons I'm deciding to take a small break. Not out of obligation, but because I genuinely want to share with you. I have friends that will be experiencing major life changes in 2022 (like babies, marriages, moving out of state, etc) and I want to set aside time to be there and be present for them. As well as for my husband and my marriage. Time with my family and my husband's family. And most importantly, my mental health. I have be in non-stop hustle mode for two years. Weekends of shooting, weekday evenings of shooting + editing. Weekdays I'm working my full-time 8-5 job. Missing my family and out-of-town friends has taken a toll. It’s caused strain. And frankly, I need a small break. I’m afraid if I keep pushing at this pace, I’ll start hating the one thing I’m passionate about.


Thank you all for your continued support of Sarah Michelle Photography. I’m sad I’ll miss out on potential new clients for 2022, but excited about the personal growth, time off, and reflection 2022 will bring.
