  • 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!

    xoxo,
    Sarajane.

MLNA: Day Four

Good Morning!

I sat down to write last night, afraid that I’d forget things, but, I fell asleep with my hands on the keyboard. So, here we are this morning.
Right now I’m sitting at my breakfast table overlooking Lake Nicaragua and wishing I’d arranged to stay on Isla de Ometepe for longer.

The island is beautiful with volcanoes rising out of the water, fresh water beaches, and bright colorful birds that land right next to you like you’re old friends.

MLNA: Day 2

After leaving Carl and his buddies yesterday I met another American living in Granada.
His name is Jeremy and he lives here and rents out property to tourists who are visiting.
He hooked me up with a taxi driver friend of his named Bosco.
Bosco picked me up from my hotel and gave me a ride from Granada to San Jorge.
Beyond being a taxi driver, Bosco plays competitive chess all over the world.
He also knows how to solve a Rubiks cube in under 3 minutes.
A skill which he taught me in Spanish, while driving the car…

My Little Nicaraguan Adventure: Day One.

My travel day started yesterday when my sweetheart of a brother picked me up at 9am, took me for coffee, and drove me to Greenville to catch my flight. On the flight from Greenville to Atlanta I sat next to Daniel, a salesman who works in the credit card industry out of Ohio. He warmed up to me when I gave him a hard time about figuring out how to use the seat belt. Otherwise, he worked the majority of the flight and only took breaks to answer my endless stream of questions and to offer up a bit of sass himself.
He asked me where I was going and then he asked me why. I hadn’t really answered that question fully until he asked it. Before I had time to filter or to try to make myself sound less excited I spat out, “To find an adventure.”

I guess that was the first time I’d really acknowledged it even to myself. Before I would say simple answers like, “vacation” or “because I committed to go out of the country every year and I haven’t yet this year.” Both of those answers are true, but, they aren’t the core of it. The core of it is that I’m in Nicaragua to find adventure and through that to hopefully find a little piece of myself too.
