Art has always been an important part of my life though something I never thought would be a gift of mine.  As a child I envied my younger sister’s ability to put colored pencils to paper and create what only her imagination had seen before.  Watching her drawings come alive was inspiring to me and made me yearn for a talent I could call my own.  Throughout my childhood I was increasingly moved by musicians, poets, actors and writers, reveling in their ability to move an audience.  It wasn’t until I picked up a camera that I felt as if I, too, could be a part of this band of misfits, expressing myself in ways I had never imagined.

Throughout high school I flirted with photography but it wasn’t until college when I got my first “real” camera that my artistic vision started to form.  It was then that Sara Faith Photography was born.  At first it was only a hobby, but after months of college classes and 9-5 work, I knew my heart truly belonged to my art.

Since 2009, I have been working to create my unique photographic style which I feel is ever-evolving.  I draw my biggest inspiration from photographers Lara Jade and Annie Leibovitz, musicians John Mayer and Dave Matthews and many of the talented friends and models I get to work with on a daily basis.  My biggest dream is to be half of the inspiration they have been to me.

Currently, I’m working toward breaking into fashion photography and representing my vision on a global scale.  I appreciate every opportunity that is given to me and look forward to growing as an artist every day.
