About Me

Sarah Rose Smiley is a visual artist based in Boston, MA.

Art is her love language.

Most significantly, it has been a way to express pain about oppressive expectations of beauty and ways of being, and celebrate what feels more real.

She believes you do not have to "get ready" for a photo. You are always inherently "ready," and worthy of being photographed, documented, and loved without changing a thing.

“Our photos are so special. For the first time in almost ten years, I feel like we have photos that actually look like us. Sarah did a beautiful job.”
