  • Hello Beautiful!

    I'm Sarajane and I'm a blogger and photographer based in Asheville, NC!

    On this blog you can find stories from my life, thoughts on the world, and photographs of beautiful people.

    I believe that everyone has a beauty that is unique to them. It's something that we're all unaware of and usually the thing that shows up when you don't realize anyone is watching. It's my pleasure to customize every session to suit the person in front of my camera. Ultimately bringing out that spark that you don't even realize is there!

    Now, grab a cup of coffee {or tea}, sit down, and peruse the images of some people that I adore, read a bit about my life and the heart of what I do!

    Be sure to leave a comment or two and let me know you were here!


The Trouble With Love Is…

Love to me is elusive.
I recoil at the hope of it.
I get a little shakey when I think of all I’ve never felt.
Then, I get contained and reclusive at the fear that the spark that I dream of doesn’t actually exist.

What happens when I connect with someone in all the right ways but, I can’t see it because I’m waiting for some magic feeling?
Have I already done that?

Mornings, Models, and Saying No: This is the Good Life.

It’s been on my mind a lot lately to remain grateful for everything in my world. I think it’s easiest when you feel your heart aching to ask yourself what you could do to feel better. How you could improve yourself to make things lovelier. But, maybe the trick is simply in acknowledging all of the good things that already exist in your life. Just taking the time to breathe them in and admit that things are pretty damn good.

So, here we go.

1. Morning Time.

Dear Sarajane.

As part of my resolutions this month I agreed to write myself a letter everyday. I wanted to treat it like a really honest love letter. Praising myself but also admitting my weaknesses. I never intended to share these. But, as I re-read a few of them I decided to share. Mainly because I’ve found out that we all have more in common than I’d ever imagined and I learned that from sharing.

So, here we go.

This is perfect timing for me. Thank you for sharing.

I do love you so. Here’s to being brilliant and beautiful and funny and interesting and utterly lovely (and fat). <3
(sometimes just saying it out loud takes all the power out of it, doesn’t it?)

Grounded July.

A woman stops me on the street to read me a poem.
A poem by Czeslaw Milosz.
I could chose any that I liked. I chose, “love.”

“Love means to look at yourself the way one looks at distant things.
For you are only one thing among many…”

His words streamed from her mouth.
Rich, thick-like agave.
They were weighted with wisdom and authority.

I complimented the poem and the woman responded, “You can see why he’s well respected.”
I blushed at my naivete.
Of course the poem is good.

But it spoke to me, pierced me at my gut.
