Today we’d like to introduce you to Kathryn Brown and Jacqui Brown.
Kathryn, Jacqui, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
We’ve known each other for about seven years, and as of this past month, we are sisters-in-law! Less than a year ago, you would have seen us as friendly competitors with photography studios. Yep, you read that right. In May of this year, we were on the phone chatting, when Jacqui spontaneously said: “Hey what do you think about combining our businesses?” We talked for three hours that night about this crazy new idea, and instantly knew it would be a great fit. About a month later, we made Cedar & Sage Studios, LLC an official photography business, and have been building our diverse portfolio ever since.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
From the beginning, our photography styles have always been in line with one another. We love natural, candid images that capture our clients’ true selves. Our hope is that they not only receive wonderful images but also have a memorable experience as a whole. Our customers range from newborns to grandparents and everything in between.
One of the reasons we balance each other so well starts with our background. We both had experience in weddings and family portraits, but Jacqui mainly photographed newborn, and maternity sessions and Kathryn had captured a lot of senior portraits. Combining our work portfolios was a huge reason we’re able to offer such a variety of photography services, unlike many other businesses in our industry.
Every session begins with a click. Our customers schedule a session with us through our website, and from there we get to know our client and their specific needs. We research locations, check lighting, purchase props, and offer advice on what to wear, all while considering the ages and needs of those photographed.
As an artist, how do you define success and what quality or characteristic do you feel is essential to success as an artist?
In a lot of ways, we’re already successful. We’re doing what we love every day and pursuing our dream with Cedar & Sage. We know we’ve done our job when our clients are in love with the images as much as we are. To be successful as an artist, we believe that you have to stay true to who you are and what you’re passionate about. We’re blessed to be on this journey together and are most thankful for each other.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
People can see our portfolio and book sessions on our website. Please support us by following us on social media, and feel free to reach out if you’re interested in collaborating on a special project! We’re always looking for models to practice new shots and styles.
