Hello, and thank you for visiting! I am Sarah Jane and I appreciate you stopping to view my work.

Here is a little bit about who I am and what I do… I live, eat and breathe photography! It is my passion, my love and I am lucky enough for it also to be my job. I have been a photographer since I was given my first camera at the age of twelve. From that day forward, creating beautiful photographs was my passion. I was a born artisit and over the past 11 years, I have studied art, technology and photography to hone my skills.

I am proud to have earned a bachelors degree in photography from the University of Central Missouri and have studied under many sucessful portrait and wedding photographers both in and around Missouri. My experiences in weddings range from the simple park to the big city mansion and I have been fortunate enough to have some commercial work make it all the way to the store fronts of New York and LA.

I was born to be a photographer and I cannot imagine myself doing anything but following my passion. My goal is for my love of photography and art to radiate from every image I create. While I like the fast-paced world of fashion and commercial photography, nothing parallels working one-on-one with my portrait and wedding clients. My business is about creating beautifully unique images that showcase the one-of-a-kind personalities of each client whether it be a child, bride, or senior. But more than that, my business is about you. It is about relationships, and for me, providing you with beautiful images is just as rewarding as getting to watch your love bloom, your family grow and your own personality take shape before my lens.

RELOCATION!!! 2010 brought me a new exciting adventure — a new state! In June I relocated to the central Illinois area and I am so excited to be growing and exploring this new area.
