Hey there, everyone!
Welcome to the blog!
I'm so happy to have this chance to chat with ya'll. Photography has been a passion since my childhood. I grew, camera in hand, in the shadow of my grandfather. He taught me to always ask questions, work hard, live passionately, and, most of all, talk to the stranger.
As adulthood set in, I convinced myself that I couldn't sell or run a business, art is no way to make a living, and was I actually any good?
After decades in a 9-5 employment, I had finally had enough! I threw caution to the wind and opened "Golden Eve Photography" in January of 2019. My goal was to capture the Golden Years right along side the fresh babies at the Eve of their lives (cheese is my middle name!).
It's been an incredible journey filled with so much triumph, heartache, and stress. The number of times I threatened to throw in the towel is innumerable, but it was through faith and the support of those around me that kept me pushing forward.
By talking to the stranger, my grandfather showed me that the human race is more connected than we are taught. Our struggles are similar; our hearts yearn to know love; and at the end of the day, we all bleed the same way.
I learned recently that life isn't about being like everyone else, trying to fit in. Life is about what makes us unique, beautiful, and, my favorite term, "perfectly imperfect." As posts are shared, it's my goal to connect with you on a human level. To share love, compassion, excitement, and hope with you.
Welcome to Sarah Dickerson Portaits, a business with a heart, passion, and soul. A place where I capture not only a pretty face, but also the person & the soul within.
"I will praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well."
