Born and raised on a family owned dairy farm in Fauquier County, along with two siblings, Amanda and Eric. Graduated Liberty High School and went to James Madison University, where I participated in Kappa Pi Honors Fraternity as well as the Marching Royal Dukes! GO DUKES! Graduated in May of 2012 with my B.F.A. in Graphic Design. I worked as a graphic designer in the D.C. area for almost a year after graduating college and then resided in Warrenton, VA to work for the Piedmont Press & Graphics as one of four graphic designers :) Currently, I am managing to balance my full time graphic design job along with my photography business! It's a hectic lifestyle, but I enjoy it!!! About my photography business: I have learned in the world of photography that it is not just about pretty photos, it is all about the EXPERIENCE the photographer gives to the client. And that is what I am out here to do! Give YOU the best experience that you will not forget! From the moment we schedule the session... to the laughs/smiles we share the day of the shoot... to the moment I hand over the package of your images... I make sure that every step of the way leaves my client smiling :)

  • Sarah - I literally visit your blog daily to see what new things your are doing to your home! It’s beautiful, every detail!
    Inspired me to make changes to my own home!

  • Always Creating™ Blog - I love this! I just bought a home myself and have been slowly pulling together my entryway. I have two 2-shelf bookcases that holds our shows, keys, storage bins, pictures, etc., but a month ago, I completed hated it so I am slowing working my way to updating the space. I love your space, definitely inspired! Great job!

RAIN. RAIN. GO. AWAY. This is the theme song to this spring season, yeah? Although, I’m glad it hasn’t been drenching rain where we have to worry about flooding. There is relief in that thought!!! Just thinking that this consistent rain has been nourishing the plants and trees. Better than a drought! The only thing […]
