A professionally trained artist, she studied at Blanche McDonald and Make Up For Ever Academy, Paris. Since 2006, Missy has specialized in bridal, fashion, editorial, and creative art with multiple international publications.
Sarah Mickel, raised in Nelson B.C., watched her father develop photographs when she was just four years old, not realizing that photography would soon become her life passion.
Fast forward a decade, teenage Sarah picked up her first camera, built her own dark room and completely fell in love with capturing moments through still images.
Starting out in the fashion world modeling in front of the camera, Sarah often paid more attention to what the photographers were doing, instead of smiling for the camera. Eventually, she made the switch to her true passion of being behind the camera and was soon capturing beautiful baby bumps, specializing in pregnancy photography.
Sarah is now an established professional photographer living in Revelstoke with connections to Nelson, Vernon and Vancouver. As a busy mother of two teenagers, if she isn’t spending time behind the camera you can find her designing ads and other graphic work for her own local publication, managing her 16-year-old singer/ songwriter daughter, Aza Nabuko, or taking long walks with the family dog.
Raising her family and taking on new and challenging projects, are passions that give this artist her continuing drive and motivation.
