Sara Jolise Burton, Owner and Photographer

" We come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly."

My name is Sara Jolise Burton.  I am the proud owner and primary photographer of Jolise Photography. I am also wife to a loving husband and mother to a beautiful baby girl.

As a mother, I know about and have experienced first hand the struggle of having a post-partum "mom bod." I have my good days and will continue to have my bad days- as we all do. I love that it is my job and privilege to make women like me feel their best and restore confidence in themselves. With today's impossible beauty standards, I strive to connect with each of my clients and empower them through self love. As Theodore Roosevelt said, "Comparison is the thief of joy." Each woman is unique, beautiful and 100% themselves. You should never compare your beauty to another's. I love that I get to photograph unique women of all different shapes, ages, lifestyles and stories.

I cannot wait to meet you, hear your unique story and chat with you about how you would like to be photographed!

Be sexy. Be real. Be alive. Be in love.

Angela Reno, Hair and Makeup

Coming from a family of artists, it was not a surprise I would follow on the artistic journey. I have been surrounded by art my whole life. It started at a young age with an influence of an art teacher, my aunt. She introduced me to different paints and forms of art. I continued to study painting and fashion throughout school. I became intrigued with designing clothing and  painting women’s portraits yet I was still unsure of the the path ahead.

I knew I had a passion to create and I never wanted to stop painting.

It was not until a girlfriend asked me to do her hair and makeup that I realized what I was meant to do. Not only was I still painting, but my art was alive and real. It had emotion. It had confidence. 

I began my career working in New York City alongside some the industry’s most influential photographers, models, and designers. I worked on set assisting designers and photographers styling the models. Between fashion shows with Vera Wang and Catherine Malandrino I was working with major music performers like Glee and my experience continued to grow. Commercial work began to follow and I had the pleasure of working with some major talent like Burt Reynolds. Weddings also became a big part of my business and with that expansion I began to build a team of trained artists to work along side me.
