Studio Manager Sarah Coppola has a passion for art and the emotion it evokes from others. She has long-standing experience in the art world, after growing up in her mother’s pottery studio.
After four years at UNC Chapel Hill, including a semester in Florence, Italy, Sarah graduated with a BFA in Studio Art and a second major in Anthropology. While in school she worked building sets at Paul Green Theater and in Visitor’s Services at Ackland Art Museum. Following graduation she managed an art gallery for four years before coming to Tamara Lackey Photography.
Following in her mother’s footsteps, Sarah also does clay sculpture and jewelry in her spare time to provide herself with a creative outlet. She loves to be around creative people and is thrilled to be working with such wonderful photographers.
Maggie began her photography journey in 1988 when she took her first photography class and has been learning and shooting ever since. In 2012, Maggie earned her Certified Professional Photographer designation after meeting rigorous requirements measuring her artistic and technical competence. Maggie has experience shooting a wide variety of subjects, but she loves capturing children’s expressions more than anything.
