sarahTell us a little about you…

I’m a full-time senior photographer with two studios in Toledo, Ohio and Tampa Bay, Florida! I love what I do and couldn’t ask for a more rewarding and fulfilling career. When I’m not behind the camera or running my business, I love to travel and explore new places, hunt for rare finds at vintage thrift shops, and play keyboards in a local indie band.

How long have you been in business?

7 years, the past 4 have been specializing only in High School Seniors.

What do you love most about photographing seniors?

I love the opportunity to help my Seniors get a confidence boost and show them how beautiful they really are, both inside and out! It’s such a unique time in their lives when having someone help you realize just how awesome you are can make a huge difference with your self-esteem!

What’s in your camera bag?

My Canon 5d Mark III, 85L, 50L, 28mm, and silver/white reflector. I like to keep it simple! 😉

Favorite type of location to shoot

I love shooting on the beach at sunset… but give me a plain old grass field at golden hour, and that’s my ideal spot!

What is one tip you can share regarding senior photography?

Education is everything! One of the best things you can do, especially early on in your business, is invest in high-quality classes and workshops that will give you the tools and resources you need to really succeed.
