I am Sarah-Jane, SJ for short and never Sarah!

I am a Wife, Boy Mumma, Groodle lover, Photographer, Designer and Art Teacher. I was born on a farm just out of Ganmain, NSW (you may need to google that one) and now reside in Bendigo, Victoria.

When I’m not photographing or designing you can find me enjoying the outdoors with my family, visiting cafes, travelling, cooking, trying to garden, supervising our home renovations and styling our house.

From the moment I held a Kodak analogue camera in my hands as a young child, I was captivated by the art of photography. The anticipation of waiting for the film to be developed only fueled my excitement. As I progressed through my education, I faced a pivotal decision in high school, where I chose to switch schools to chase a Photography subject. Little did I know, this choice would set the stage for a remarkable career.

In my pursuit of knowledge and artistic expression, I enrolled in a Bachelor of Photography and Graphic Design at Charles Sturt University. It was during my second year that a lecturer approached me with an opportunity to photograph a wedding. Nervous yet eager, I embraced the challenge, and it turned out to be a turning point in my life. Thirteen years later, I am still passionate about capturing beautiful wedding moments that couples can treasure forever.

Driven by a thirst for knowledge and a desire to share my passion with others, I made the decision to further my education. I returned to study, focusing on Visual Arts and the opportunity to teach the younger generation about the wonders of Art.

Today, you can find me imparting my knowledge and creativity as a part-time art teacher at a local school in Bendigo. Balancing my teaching responsibilities with running my business, all while raising two young boys, has become the perfect harmony in my life.

Yes, there are challenges along the way. The road of an artist is seldomly smooth. But when I reflect on my journey, I wouldn’t change a thing. The fulfillment I find in capturing cherished moments, witnessing love and joy, and nurturing the creativity of young minds is immeasurable.

At High Meadow Studio, you can expect not only stunning photographs but also a heartfelt commitment to capturing your most precious moments with passion and love. Let me be a part of your story, and together, we will create memories that will be cherished for a lifetime.

Thank you for considering High Meadow Studios. I look forward to connecting with you and embarking on this beautiful journey together.
