Sara Duckett is a photographer, graphic designer, and boutique owner. She started her online boutique, Sadie Olive, back in March of 2007 as the first of her online ventures. It was a part time hobby while she worked a full time job in the mortgage industry. Then in August of 2007, she was let go during the mortgage meltdown, and was forced to get creative. Sara started Sadie Olive Design as a way to earn extra money while she looked for another full time job, but ended up doing design work full time.
Sara loves her latest venture in photography and the creative outlet it provides. She still continue to run all three businesses, and feels blessed that she gets to work from home doing the things she loves.

Marico began falling in love with photography while using a pink plastic point-and-shoot in the woods surrounding her childhood home. Moving up to an old Honeywell Pentax with black & white film in high school helped define her vision and personal style, based on natural light and strong compositions. She made the switch from traditional film to digital photography in 2005 and the digital realm provided Marico with the opportunity to begin making self-portraits. Inspired by the power she has as both the artist and the model, Marico is mindful that historically a female artist depicting herself or other women was a subversion of the traditional role of women in art: a subject to be passively viewed. Marico continues to explore the connotations of this role reversal in both portraits and self-portraits.
