Hello

I'm Sara.  I'm starting a blog for three reasons.  First, it seems like a great way to launch my photography career.  Second, for therapy.  Let's be honest, it's a lot cheaper than a psychologist or drinking.  Third, it seems like a hell of a lot of fun...  so we're going with blogging!

I'm an artist. Born and raised in Grand Rapids, MI, I moved to Chicago three years ago to attend college.  As much as I love traveling, I never want to leave this city. My entire family is from the Chicago area, so growing up I would just tell people that's where I was from too.  It's really nice to get to say it without lying now.  The last three years in the city have definitely "toughened me up" and prepared me to be successful in not only my career, but in life.

I'm a photographer.  I graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a major in Photography, concentrated in Fashion. The images and artwork you see in the pages of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, that's what I want to do.  Columbia is great, because you get real world experience creating professional-quality photographs that are your very own.  Since graduating in May of 2016, I've been thinking a great deal about with what to do next.  There are endless opportunities in this profession.  I know where I want to end up but getting there takes passion, hard work, and a little bit of good fortune.  I know many other photographers and artists in the fashion industry that are in the same boat.  I believe that each of us has the ability to create our own luck, so here I am, giving you a look behind the curtain into the industry that I love and am proud to call my own.  This page will provide insight into some of the "dos" and "don'ts", a unique look at the craziness that is the fashion world, and hopefully a few good laughs along the way. Now go subscribe below! ;)
