Krysta: Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

Sarah: I live in Taylorsville NC and grew up showing and competing in hunter jumpers from the age of 5 through college. My family has always loved horses and raising cattle. Both groups of my grandparents had cattle growing up. From setting up hay in the summer to working the cows during the calving season. I have always grown up around horses and got my first horse when I was 2 years old. I’ve never known a world without horses and in college I was on the App State horse team and started taking pictures for the team that’s where my love of photography and horses began.

Krysta: How did you start your business?

Sarah: When I was on the equestrian team at Appalachian State University, I managed our website and social media. To get footage, I started using my dad’s camera at shows to get content. And I fell in love with photography.

Krysta: What motivates you in your business?

Sarah: It’s a passion like I can’t even describe. It’s definitely a God given talent and I always want to learn more and improve as best I can. I enjoy forming lasting friendships with my clients who keep coming back. It’s definitely a dream job and I feel so lucky to be able to do it every day.

Krysta: What makes your company unique from others?

Sarah: I put everything into this job. I bend over backwards to make sure your experience is amazing. I adapt each photo session to the client and his horse. I have a huge western fashion client closet where clients can choose and enhance their photos to make them feel like they’re in a fairy tale!

Krysta: Where do you want to be in the next 3 years?

Sarah: I want to travel more and meet new clients all over the country. I want to offer equine photography workshops in some of the most beautiful places in the west on ranches. I want to share my passion with others!
