about me and this blog

photography, design, arts & crafts

Hi, my name is Sarita, I’m 39 years old, married to a wonderful husband, mother of two beautiful kids, and dog-mom to our feisty Bernese Mountain Dog! I was born in Leimen, Germany as the child of a pediatric nurse and a doctor in philosophy and geophysical science. I was raised in southwest Germany, pretty close to Stuttgart.


I started this blog to take you with me on my photography journey, to show some of my designs and some arts & crafts I love to do... 


I hadn't the typically career of somebody in the creative sector and I want to show if you never stop to pursue your dreams you can reach them no matter what age you are.

The short version: I finished high school in 1998 in Germany and went on to work through an apprenticeship as an office manager in one of Germany’s biggest mail-order companies. Once my apprenticeship was over, I started working in the marketing department of the same company. Then I moved up to become a Target Group Manager. In 2006, I changed companies and worked as the Head of Marketing and Advertising for Europe’s biggest mail-order company for beauty and hair cosmetics. I studied Graphic Design and managed my own marketing agency in Germany for many years. When we came to the US I started working as a Marketing and Media Manager for a big consulting company but decided I need to learn something new. Photography was always a hobby and so it was a easy task to start studying photography.


I hope you enjoy reading my articles and maybe get inspired to start what you are dreaming of...
