Hey Friends!

Welcome to the blog!

I'm Sara Johnson, a free-spirited, travel seeking, Birkenstock wearing Wedding and Senior Portrait Photographer based in Rockford, IL! I'm also addicted to Mid Century Modern design and am a strong believer in creating something bigger than myself. 

Kirsten and I have been friends since third grade.

Let me just start by saying that these two are some of my favorite people in the whole world. Kevin + Jennie Goss are unbelievable people. First off, they’re HILARIOUS…both amazing actors (uh hmm, actress to you, Jennie!) who love to goof off and let their personalities shine brighter than everyone else in the room! […]
