The Story of a Girl

I’m Sarah and I am so excited you are here! I’m not the most eloquent person when it comes to describing myself so what you’re about to get is authentic, a little bit all over the place, and 100% me! 

I don’t know what to say when people ask where I am from since I’ve moved around to about 15 different towns in my 29 years of life, but I generally tell people that I am from Gurnee, IL since I lived there for about 8 years. I’m not a small town girl, but I’m not a city girl either. I guess I’m your right in the middle town girl trying to find my place in this world. Right now that place is Nashville!

I was such a tomboy growing up, so naturally I love sports (football and hockey are my faves - Go Packers & Blackhawks) and my dad taught me all the names and cities of every NFL team by the time I was four, so I’ve got that going for me. 

I am a First Lieutenant in the National Guard and an instructor at Pure Barre White Bridge in Nashville. I like to be able to balance my life with the other passions I have like leading, coaching and fitness. And while I do my best to stay in shape, I truly do plan my life around my next meal. Any time I am traveling or meeting someone somewhere, I have to know when we’re eating, what we’re eating, and if I need to bring snacks beforehand. And it is always okay if the answer is pizza. 

It’s no surprise that I focus my job on love, music and those who create. I am such a music nerd and I have a slight obsession with song lyrics. All the music knowledge and history, I love it, so throw it at me! One of my goals is to take a shot used for a musician’s album cover. From there, I will be able to add more goals.

If you were to ever to come to my home, you would also know that I have the same love for Corinthians 13:7. It basically explains how I live my life and a lot of the time, my friends have to stop me from buying more home décor with any part of the verse on it when I see it.  

I worked a lot with creatives and models in my earlier photography years but have been working more with couples since 2012 when I graduated with a Photography degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Whether you are a couple, family or creative on the journey to build what you love, I am all about it! My focus is bringing your authentic story to life!

My favorite part of capturing your story is that it is one step closer to writing mine. We really are all in this together. I love what I do and those that have been and continue to be with me along this journey. So if you think we would jam well together, let’s!
