At nine years old, Sara stood in a darkroom learning the art of film development with a fashion photographer family friend and fell madly in love with the medium. Soon after, her mother an artist herself, bought her a camera and her photojournalistic shooting style took form. Documenting the Brooklyn neighborhood where she lived, in ways she felt others didn’t see it, was a “think outside the box” style that she’s been shooting ever since. A deep love of documentary style infused with mood and spirit of the moment is something she strives to capture with every click of the shutter.
Ansel Adams, Edward Steichen, Annie Leibovitz and Yousef Karsh are some of her earliest inspirations. In her twenties she assisted a friend who was an up and coming photo journalistic wedding photographer. But it wasn’t until a recent collaboration with one of the Hollywood’s top photographers that her artistic need manifested into a necessity. And well… the rest is history.
Beyond the lens, Sara is a novelist, a literary publicist, graphic artist and great friend. She has a daughter Chloe, a husband of 17 years, Sean and two fur babies, Duncan and Murphy. One day she hopes to spend her days snapping pics and traveling the world.
