bryce is 18 months

It’s the last week of Summer for the Rose Crew.  Can’t even believe school starts back up FRIDAY!  Looking forward to these last few days (in the 80′s!!!) with my guys as we wish the Summer goodbye and welcome a brand new school year in.  But, before we do and before my two stretch their arms and let out their yawns to a brand new day I wanted to share one of my favorite Summer sessions with you all.  My buddy Bryce and his precious parents met me close to sunset down by the lake.  We ended up at one of my favorite spots to celebrate their boy at 18 months.  What a joy it was.

Hope you will leave them some love.  And, don’t forget….4th quarter opens up NEXT MONDAY.  Go here to read the details.

Have a great week, friends.  XO, SR

Carrie - Standing on that box with his hand in his pockets – precious! Beautiful work, Sara!

Christie Crotts - Such beautiful pics!! My faves are the family pic by the water, Bryce playing in the water with the ducks in the background, standing on the box with his hand in his pockets, and the family pic where he’s kissing his wonderful mommy. That was hard because I love them all!!

booking fall soon

Howdy Friends!

I have had several emails come in the past two weeks about booking Fall and although I’d like to think I am pretty good with keeping everyone “in the know”, I am finding that I may not be!  SO, here’s the plan.  On Monday, August 4th, I will be accepting 4th quarter bookings (October, November and December).  My Saturdays will be limited and Baby’s First Year Clients who have already paid for their session (between newborn and 1 year) will get first dibs.  Weekdays will be available while my guys are in school and I will be accepting ONE sunset shoot during the week (but must take place in Wilson County).  During Fall Break I will be available the 13th through the 16th for Sunset shoots.  My weekends are set for Oct 4th + 18th, Nov 8th + 15th and December 6th.

I know this is  completely different than years past and chances are I won’t be able to accommodate everyone…. but as always, I will do my very best.  I look forward to an AMAZING Fall Season filled with clients who love LOVE, laughter and life.  You can book by emailing me (go to contact tab above) first thing AUGUST 4th!  Retainers will be required to hold your date.

Looking forward to capturing YOUR LIFE during my favorite season of the year!

love, pups and baby

Expecting.  One of my favorite sessions to do is maternity.  I know what JOY is headed their way and I couldn’t be more excited to capture the incredible journey they are about to experience.

Hope you will show the love to brand new friends of mine and new to SRP.  Expecting Baby.

words that inspire me

Happy Monday, Friends!

I thought I’d start this week off with some of my favorite words that inspire me. Maybe they will inspire you?

I love positive words that fill my soul, encourage my heart and just all around lift me up. Sometimes I will pin words that mean something to me during a certain journey in my life (sometimes a little deep), but all are close to my heart.

Are you on Pinterest? Well, if you are and you’d like a board to follow with only words that will inspire then go here.  (you will find all the sources of these amazing graphics there)

Happy Day to you!

kyleigh brand new

I have been so blessed to watch this family grown since big sister was 3 months old.  She turns 5 this year!!  Can’t even believe it.  She’s my muse.  Just gets in front of my camera and performs.  I think little sister is going to follow quite nicely in her footsteps.  Here’s to another amazing year of Capturing Life, their life.  It’s going to be beautiful watching them continue to grow.

Meet Kyleigh and catch up with this sweet family that I love with all of my heart.

banks family

Two blogs in one week!  I am listening….

This year was the first year in a while that I have started to accept new clients.  And, I am so glad I did.  This sweet family is new to SRP and just a JOY to be around.  We spent an early Saturday morning together right down the street from their home.  I told them all I need is a family in love and beautiful light and the magic will happen.  Magic did happen.  This is my kind of family shoot…..

Wishing everyone a safe 4th of July!  Hope you guys are surrounded by those you love the most and making memories to last a lifetime!

addie is 9 months

March was the last time I blogged.  MARCH!  I know I have been posting away on my Facebook Page, but I have got to get better about blogging.  Boys start school in a month (where has the time gone?), so I hopefully will do better about sharing some of the most beautiful sessions I have had over the past few months and those in the future.  Can y’all believe we are half way through the year?  I sure can’t!  But, it’s been a GOOD year.

I got out of the car to meet this special family.  A family that I have been photographing since their oldest was in the womb.  A family that has let me into their hearts since the beginning.  I got out of the car to thunder.  Shelley said “let’s shoot, Sara”.  So, we did.   Shelley knew that no matter what was going on with the weather we could have one incredible shoot.  And, we did.  It was windy for a little bit, thunder for a short time and then rain.  Through out it all we made it happen and just focused on what we were there to capture…Life, Love and Happiness.  Thankful for them.

Sure hope you guys are loving Summer and taking it all in as much as possible.  We sure are.
