Sara Rae Design Shop

When I was about 10 years old, I went through a stage where I would only wear white t-shirts and jeans. And usually, the t-shirts were over sized. Sometimes I would even sneak in and take my dad's shirts (sorry dad!). My poor, lover of all things sparkly, mother tried everything she could to get me to wear color. Or a dress. Or anything other than jeans and a white t-shirt. I DEFINITELY was NOT going to be caught DEAD wearing jewelry. At least nothing other than my newly pierced earrings. I was a bit of a tom-boy at that age, and I seemed to have something against anything that might make me get picked last for kickball.

When I was in high school, this slowly started to change. I evolved. A little bit. Slowly. I finally wore 2 inch flip flop heels to my high school graduation. This was quite an ordeal, as I graduated at the Crystal Cathedral and it had a marble stage. My mother held her breath and prayed like crazy as I walked across the stage and managed to NOT fall on my face. That is wear my love of high heel shoes and all things sparkly began.

I was so excited to shoot some pieces from the amazingly talented Sara of Sara Rae Design Shop. Her jewelry is hand made and GORGEOUS! Here are a few of my favorite shots of my favorite pieces!














































And if you can't wait for her website, you can email her at Sarah@Sarahraedesignshop.com, or you can check out her work in person at the Sweet and Saucy Shop in Long Beach where it is currently being sold!

Wow. I love her hair too! I have been following your blog for quite some time....I LOVE your work! I won't go into a long, rambling e-mail, but I would love to hear how you got started....are you self-taught....when did you feel comfortable enough to charge for photos? I have been shooting mainly pics of my grandsons football games, mainly to have pictures of him, but to get practice with my camera (AV is finally down pretty good!). But I want to get moving in my photography, and I'm kind of at a cross-road right now. Financially we can't afford lenses, or much of anything right now, so I'm just not quite sure what to do now. I'm so burnt out in my day job (30 years!) and really want to be able to one day do photography full-time. Any advice would be SO appreciated!

Take care
Dawn
