Photos by the lovely Kirstie Dunston

about the artist

I'm a twenty-something, freckle-faced lover of my husband, my golden retriever, and all things vintage. I may have a slight obsession with home organization, anything (fashion, cars, music, interior design, etc.) from the '70s, Game of Thrones, traveling, and finding a great pair of shoes. I would also like to add that I'm essentially a twenty-something granny who may have too many houseplants (I just can't help myself!) – I like an early bedtime, needlepoint, and easy Friday night plans. A typical day of working/editing in the office includes: either iced or hot coffee on my desk, The Lumineers Radio on Spotify, a space heater (don't laugh), and my dog snuggled up at my feet. 

I have been a photographer for four years (one year officially as Sarah E Dunn Photo and Design). I have photographed a variety of life moments and events. I find myself getting lost in the work I do for each and every project. I'm super laid back and aim to make my clients feel comfortable for their shoot. I like to meet up before the session to casually chat about their ideas for the session and to have the opportunity get to know each other.  During our time together, you'll notice I don't necessarily pose my clients for their session. Instead, I want to capture the connection shared between people and what they do and who they do it for. So rather than stiff, unnatural poses, you'll feel connected and relaxed and I'll just be snapping away! I might prompt you to interact with your lover, your family, + your surroundings. I thrive off natural reactions, the art of play, belly laughs, and deep stares. I just know we will have a great time!

I currently live in Lexington, Kentucky. But I've got a passport and would be honored to capture your story anywhere in the world. // Thanks for stopping in!
