it's all about THE story

I’m Sarah, the PNW native behind BRAEVIN. Outside of the creative world, I’m an extroverted introvert, passionate about Jesus, and deeply connected to my family, friends and husband. I love food, travel and am obsessed with trees and the outdoors. When I’m not designing or photographing, you will most likely find me watching the Blazers, doing something outside (running, hiking, snowboarding) or sharing stories over a good cup of coffee or local IPA.

I've always been inspired by stories. Every human, business and brand has a story, yet few know how to share it, or feel as though it's worthy of sharing. Utilizing my graphic design education from Oregon State (go Beavs!), design agency and Nike experience, and over eight years of running a photography business, my goal with Braevin is to tell your story in a refreshing and captivating way.

The name "Braevin" comes from John 15:5, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing”. In order for my business to grow, Braevin (a branch) must be rooted in The Vine. The word “BRAEVIN” is simply a blending of the words BRANCH and VINE as a constant reminder of where my roots are planted.
