Truancy

She was neither here nor there.

 

Lost beneath brown eyes and curly hair

 

With jagged teeth and vacant stare

 

She was neither here nor there.

 

It has been almost a year since I last posted. I must say that I had forgotten about this blog. A lot has changed in this last year, including myself. Yet, the feeling of being lost still remains.

Looming

Hello my lovely readers.

Yes yes I know.

I have been absent for a ridiculously long time. I have been struggling to manage varsity and work life

Grow up they said, it will be fun, they said

Anyways I hope to be posting more frequently as  really do miss blogging. In the spirit of my return, Here is a portrait a took a few week ago

Skater Boy

Please excuse the corny title, it has been a while since I last blogged so wittiness is a little on the scares side.

Why hello lovely people of the internet. I know I know, I just disappeared but hey,

Life happened.

Yesterday afternoon I shot a very ballsy skater.

Skate parks frighten and confuse me.

Simply, Bearable.

So we are heading towards the new year and, like every end of year, I sit and contemplate my life and the choices I made in the present year. I think about what I can do to be a better soul(Ronnie Radke fans will appreciate that reference) and what I would like to do differently the following year. This year, my last official “teen” year, I have been striving to be accepted as an adult but feel I have failed to do so. Next year I will officially be in my twenties and I’m ready to “grow up” and not always expect people to take me seriously when I fail to do so myself. I am not saying that a child like spirit is bad but there comes a time in ones life where you crave a different kind of respect. Well, at least I do anyway.

Right, onto the photography.

My childhood nickname has always been bear and although it is a term of endearment, I feel like I hide behind it and henceforth can not take myself seriously. This nickname will always be a big part of who I am but it will not define me. My name is Sarah, and I am ready for 2015

My Flawless Ending

So yesterday afternoon I had scheduled a shoot with a local band by the name of My Flawless Ending. Naturally I was flushed with nerves as not only was this my first band shoot, but The lead guitarist of the band is my friend and roommate so if I did happen to screw up, I feared I would stare into the face of disappointment everyday. So naturally I planned ahead for a nice afternoon shoot. And then life happened…

Afternoon turned to evening and I was forced to use strobe lights

Strobe Lighting:

origin: Google it

A technique that Sarah is very very Very unfamiliar with.

So after a whole evening of panic, I decided to call it a night and pray that my photoshop skills would carry me through.

Here is the final product
