Today we’d like to introduce you to Sarah Izidoro.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
Photography was always something that I was passionate about since a young age. I would take my moms camera to school and snap away. The amount of money my mom spent on developing film was outrageous. I had every “new” style camera as they came out it is what I asked for almost every year for Christmas. I had the mini cannon Panoramic camera when it came out and then when digital happened I had new ones all the time. Once I got to college I took a black and white photography class that I very much enjoyed, however, I did like a more advanced way to edit my photos than a black and white room so back to digital I went. It wasn’t until my life started to get a little more chaotic (getting married and starting a family) which is when I decided to step out of my comfort zone and take photography more serious. I actually won the camera I use at a charity auction which gave me no excuse to really get things going. Soon enough I was capturing my family and friends most precious events from birth announcements to 1-year shoots.
Please tell us about your art.
My focus is on family photography. I love capturing the love and emotion between family. There is so much excitement in these special times in our lives that we will never get back. I do everything from couples/engagement, maternity, newborn, to a family reunion. One of my favorite things is setting up a themed backdrop with props usually related to the time of year or holiday and doing mini sessions with the kiddos.
We often hear from artists that being an artist can be lonely. Any advice for those looking to connect with other artists?
Yes, I can see that but I have actively involved myself in Facebook and Instagram by connecting with other photographers. There are great resources out there that are free where you can learn from your peers and get inspiration. I have noticed with the photography industry that everyone is very supportive and willing to help each other out.
How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
As this is a part-time thing for me I just focus on Instagram to show my work.
