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 photography.

Using professional photos to market and advertise your brand not only positions you as an expert in your field but it gives your clients a more authentic brand experience.

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 for 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. The organizations I volunteer with are Grundy-Three Rivers Habitat for Humanity, Grundy Area PADS, and our church.
