  • 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!


It’s About that Time.

A friend recently told me I was radiant.

As she spoke I was analyzing a photo that she’d taken of me.
I felt old and worn. Everything but radiant.

There’s a piece of me at times, that aches to feel valuable.
To contribute to the world.
I can’t imagine what people are seeing when they look at me.
What they feel when they interact with me.

Certain Uncertainty.

I haven’t been blogging as frequently.

Partially because I’ve found it difficult to find the time to write like I’m accustomed to.
Also, because I’ve been reading through some of my old writing, from college.

The Thorns.

Often, I feel fragile.

I’m quick to sway with the wind and bend to the will of the world.
It can feel as though my petals could easily be crushed by the footprint of life.

August Alive.

Hi there.

I suppose it’s right about time for me to talk about my monthly resolutions again.
Have no idea what I’m talking about?
Get the details here.

Now, July…

In the month of July I wanted to focus on learning to say ‘no.’
To not do things just because I felt obligated to do them, rather, to focus my energy on the things that I WANTED to do.
The things that felt fulfilling for me and not the things that felt fulfilling for everyone else while draining me.

I also wanted to write daily letters to myself as a practice in being completely honest with myself and to tap into a deeper level of understanding.

How did I do?
Well, not perfect.
I didn’t say ‘no’ every time that I should have.
Daily letters looked a little more like weekly letters.
But, I did gain what some may call ‘balls’ or feminist friends of mine may call ‘ovaries’ and the generally accepted term of courage.

I’ve learned to stop making excuses for things I don’t want to do.
To not try to be ‘nice’ when turning things down but rather to be direct and honest.
It feels so much better.
For everyone.

I also think the letters to myself will continue.
It’s amazing to filter my thoughts in that way.
I really do feel like I hear things more clearly through that medium.
