I'm a photographer and educator who believes you've gotta build your dreams from the inside out

Sarah Jane

I'm a high-energy and outgoing Mama, a Starbucks junkie, a cowgirl boot addict and a girl that loves a good project around the house. I am Mom to three perfect littles ones, Mason, Ryan & Ava and a wife to my hunky husband, Matthew. Based in Bourbonnais, Illinois, I am a natural light photographer who specializes in boutique style senior and branding portrait experiences.

get to know me!

Being a creative is in my core. My life has taken me down many winding paths from teaching high school art to exploring careers in interior design, even selling telecom at one point! All those paths have lead me to the firm believe that this is exactly what I should be doing. Photography allows me to celebrate people and enjoy all different types of personalities and styles. It allows me to capture the best version of each individual!

As far back as I can remember, creating has been a "must have" in my life

Searching for the right portrait photographer can be a daunting task! This day is all about you! Whether you're one of my High School Senior clients or a Branding client, you have come so far in your life and it is time to celebrate that with the most amazing photo session possible. Hair and make-up? I can point you in the right direction! Clothing choices? Fashion is my middle name. Not sure how to pose? That's ok! I am here to help guide you the entire way. You just show up looking and feeling fabulous, I will do the rest!

So what sets Sarah Jane Photography apart? In an age where we all are feeling like numbers, this is an experience you will feel anything but! From start to finish, I strive to make an experience for you like no other - one that is designed just for YOU! What I offer begins at the first phone call for booking all the way to delivering unique one of a kind portraits, perfectly framed or stunning albums scripted with your own name on every page. This is your year, and I want you to have images that you will cherish forever.

My photography style falls somewhere in the middle of modern portraiture and casual lifestyle moments. I have been making images for years -even teaching high school for many after earning a degree in photography and a masters in art education.

The ability to make someone look and feel as beautiful as they are, truly makes me so happy. There is nothing I love more than bringing out the confidence and the best in people.

Let's capture your unique personality.
