It’s Golden Hour!

What is Golden Hour? To a lighting designer or Director of Photography (DP), this is a magical time, but it can also be a prime opportunity for a well-educated makeup artist. Sara gives you a taste of what makes Golden Hour just so beautiful.

Sara’s Lighting Background

It all started with birth. No, we’re serious! Sara’s mother was an artist and art history teacher, and Sara grew up the subject of many of her mother’s paintings. In all this, Sara began to learn about color and lighting, and once she went away to school, it was clear she was passionate about it.

** Note: The adorable baby in this video is Sara’s youngest granddaughter who was happy to participate in the impromptu video filmed by her daughter.
