Today we’d like to introduce you to Sarah Elizabeth Phouthaboun.
Sarah Elizabeth, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I have always been that girl who has a camera on them. I had a small snapshot Sony camera that I never left the house without. Ask any of my friends growing up, I was the one who took pictures of all the fun adventures. As time went on it evolved to document not only my friends and family but to my children. This is where the passion started to really spark. All the sweet moments captured from my own offspring for not only my husband and I to enjoy, but for our family and friends to experience as well.
A friend of mine, Hailey Faria, was taking our yearly family portraits last year when she was telling me about her workshop she was hosting called Reverie Zion. My husband has always been my number one fan and of course, he pushed me to go. I am so glad I did because that workshop is what fanned my passion into a gargantuan flame. So here I am now, capturing and making memories for not only my own life, but for others as well
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I hope people will look back at our sessions and just remember all the fun we had during it. My goal for each and every session is that each person had a genuinely fun time. I want people to look at their images and have a huge smiles stretched across their faces, happy tears flowing uncontrollably from their eyes. I want them to be filled with so much joy each and every time they catch a glimpse of their images on their walls. That’s what fuels me
What responsibility, if any, do you think artists have to use their art to help alleviate problems faced by others? Has your art been affected by issues you’ve concerned about?
A photographer captures moments. The good, the bad, the worst, it’s what we do. For my art, everything happening in the world has really inspired me to cherish every single moment. Every raw moment, emotion, detail I want to capture it. We could lose everything in an instant. I want my art to be the light in the dark times for each family, each couple, each person I encounter.
