Sara has always loved to keep record of memories through photographs, but her passion for photography did not spark until six years ago when her family started showing cattle. She was enamored by the beauty of the animals with a natural backdrop of open pastures and various wildlife. Sara quickly fell in love with capturing the picturesque scenes through her camera lens. It was in these moments when she was “Out 2 Pasture” that she found her passion for photography and decided to pursue a career in it. With constant encouragement from her husband Ron, Sara now photographs horses and cattle professionally and has added family and individual portraits to her repertoire of services.
What is your business? Out 2 Pasture is a photography business that takes your vision and turns it into beautiful images that we hope will be appreciated for generations.
Who are your clients? My work now primarily consists of high school senior portraits, newborn photoshoots, and family sessions. I also work with independent cattle and livestock owners, as well as the Brangus Association, capturing photos of horses and cattle for shows, sales, and marketing materials.
What inspired you to become an entrepreneur? I grew up in a family of entrepreneurs. Both of my parents and all of my siblings work for themselves; I think it just runs in our blood.
What are some business wins? My biggest business wins are each time I see the faces of my clients when they look at the final product for the first time. I get almost as excited as they do!
What are your favorite things to do in Lakeland? My favorite thing to do is spend time at our small farm, but I also enjoy watching a movie at Lakeside Village, getting dinner at many of our town’s incredible restaurants, and walking around downtown.
How has Catapult helped you? The programs + education that Catapult offers have helped me greatly, but it is the atmosphere that has made the biggest impact. You can’t be there without feeling like everyone around you wants you to succeed.
Secret Sauce? Creativity. I always offer my clients traditional images and fundamental packages, but I love to throw in a mix of creative and memorable shots into each photo shoot.
