About the Owner

Photographer & Artist

My Story

Hi! I’m Sarah. I am a portrait photographer, artist, and designer based in central Iowa.

I fell in love with all things art at a very young age, then photography in high school.  I went on to get a professional photography degree and a bachelors in french studies. (Yes, once upon a time I spoke french near fluency… but now I can only read it well). After school I started up my photography business and have been doing that ever since. In addition to running my own business, I completed an online social media marketing certification and I am the marketing manager for another local business.

Art to me is a form of worship and connection. I have a genetic disorder and other chronic health issues. When I don’t feel well I pour my feelings into creating- art, music… it doesn’t matter what it is.  Point me to something creative and I’ll probably latch onto it!

I got married young, had my first two kids young (plus one more bonus baby). I come from a very large and very loud family- so this extrovert thrives in chaos.

I look forward to creating with you and encouraging you. Whether you are looking for a photographer to capture your special moment in time with patience and compassions, or just another person to encourage you as you pursue your passions. Send me a message and we can have a chat!
