Meet Sarah

I’m a DIYer at heart (more out of stubbornness than creativity) so when I have to hire a professional for something, I often think to myself… ‘They are going to be expensive. It’s going to take too much time. I can just do it myself.’ And then after I finish the project, I realize I should have hired a professional because I’ve spent more time and money than if someone else did it. This shouldn’t be the way with your brand image and photography.

As a one-woman show running a business, I learned long ago that outsourcing is key to maximizing time and profit. Let me be an extension of your business so you have more time to give to other areas.

  • lips

    I've been told I smile A LOT!

  • glasses

    The favorite thing about my job is getting to learn about my clients' businesses and establishing relationships with them.

  • notebook

    I've always been a planner, so I shouldn't be surprised that what I do for my clients now is to help them plan their photo sessions.

  • cheers

    Networking events are my jam! Really they are!

These are a few of my favorite things



These 2 humans are my favorite people in the world! My husband, Eric, and I choose to be entrepreneurs because we never want to miss dance rehearsals or school field trips.

Who doesn't love a good vacation? Since Eric and I are constantly attached to our businesses, it's important for us to schedule down-time to recharge. Our favorite place is Walt Disney World!

I'm always trying to better myself and my business and pass on what I've learned to others. I routinely have a podcast, audiobook, or e-course playing in the background on my computer while I work.



I have first-hand experience seeing the good that comes from volunteering, which is why I regularly volunteer with local nonprofits and our church.

Let's chat!
