Internet Hollywood: What’s up Sarah?! Welcome back to the Internet Hollywood universe! This is our very second time doing an interview together and I’m happy to follow up on some things from our previous conversation and what you got going on now. How has the year 2019 been going so far and what are some of the things that your working on now?


Sarah: Hi Justin! I’m so excited to have the opportunity to interview with you again! 2019 has been a wonderful and eventful year so far. The past few months I have been busy with my work in a full-time graduate program, finding new work opportunities, and booking photoshoots to keep my creativity flowing. I’m looking forward to the spring weather finally coming in New England, as outdoor photoshoots are my favorite.


Internet Hollywood: I remember you telling me you were pursuing a career in psychology. How has that been going on so far?

Sarah: That’s correct, my ultimate goal is to become a clinical psychologist. I’m currently in a graduate program for licensure in mental health counseling, which I’m hoping to complete within the next year, then I’ll be pursuing a doctorate degree soon after. My training so far has helped me to grow in many ways, personally and educationally. I feel I have become more knowledgeable in psychology, interpersonal skills and have grown to be a more thoughtful person in general. It’s been hard work, but it feels amazing to achieve goals for something that I’m passionate about.

Internet Hollywood: I’ve been checking out some of the stuff on your page and I feel some of the collaborations you did were just mind blowing. I believe I seen one with you and another model blended in with a tree. I don’t think I ever seen a photo shoot like that. I remember you telling me before that you were into fantasy, conceptual, and emotional concepts. Has that changed now that you entered a new year and what kind of photo shoots would you like to do more of this year?

Sarah: Thank you so much! Yes, I love doing creative photoshoots that are based on expressing emotion as well as using inspirations of mystical/mythological concepts. I usually end up taking on a role of a faerie-like or elf creature, it seems to come most natural to me. I like alternating between two extremes of light, ethereal, soft looks with dark, intense, goth-inspired fashions. The past few years of shooting has given me the opportunity to create a versatile portfolio, and I’m going to continue creating looks of similar concepts as before while also being open to new ideas that come about. A lot of credit goes to the amazing editing skills of the photographers I work with. They have added so much to the creativity of the shoots and helped in making the fantasy visions come to life.

Internet Hollywood: What are your goals and main focus now that you entered into a new year and has anything changed about you now compared to last year?

_


Sarah: My goals for this year are focused on thriving in my career path and continuing to create unique photoshoots. One aspect of my life that has changed has been my ability to create fashion pieces as often as I used to. Time has been limited for the creation process, but I still have a few pieces I have yet to shoot with.

Internet Hollywood: Speaking about your realm of designing, are you working on any new collections, organizing a fashion show, or doing anything related to your skill as a designer?

_


Sarah: I’m not in the process of making a new collection, but I feel like having some time away from designing has given me a chance to step back and think about where to go with my future of designing. New headpiece designs will be coming soon, and possibly an entirely new approach to what I’ve done before. I’ll keep the ideas a surprise for now!

Internet Hollywood: What kind of people are you hoping to connect more with this year and have you started charging rates for any of your services now?

_


Sarah: I’m looking to work with new people with similar creative visions, and I’m going to continue working with the photographers I’m connected with. I do charge rates depending on the project and circumstances, but I still accept trade work as well.
