My journey into the world of photography began in January 2013 using a 35 mm camera and a darkroom. I "officially" began using digital seriously in April 2013. I bought my first ever point and shoot in 2009 during my Junior year in high school. I always liked capturing moments with friends, but never considered taking photography to a new level until my third year of college. I was originally an Early Childhood major at Bridgewater State University. Over the course of three years, I finally came to the conclusion and admitted that I was in the wrong major and needed to make drastic changes in my life in order to overcome my depression. I switched to a Photography major and have never been more happy.
I have accomplished many great things early on in my career, from being featured in several showcases and publications, gaining my Bachelor's degree, and being selected for a National Conference for my Undergraduate Research in Photography at my University.
Recently, I was accepted in Graduate School at Webster University, as well as into a Certificate Program at Sessions College for a degree in Advertising and Marketing Communications. I have been diligently working towards my degree in Advertising and continue to enjoy my love of the Arts in a new and directive nature.
I am also a Jewelry Designer, and have actually been designing jewelry since I was twelve years old, long before I even discovered my love for Photography! I have backgrounds in various other artistic fields as well, such as Graphic Design.
I have been modeling since I was 18 years old, and knew many photographers, makeup artists, hairstylists, fashion designers, and models who helped me to achieve so much in such little time in my career. I am grateful every single day and feel blessed to live my life to it's fullest. Thank you so much for your interest in my work, my growth as a photographer, and your continued support of my passion. -Sara Kelley
