dunn family downtown

“A session with Sara is so sweet and familiar to our family. Like a cup of coffee with an old friend.
We have grown to love our time with her over the years so much. I tell her often, out of countless pictures taken since the twins were babies, the sweetest ones have all been taken by her hands…

She captures the most honest giggles… the sweetest little conversations… the true personalities of our kids at every season of their lives are captured so perfectly by her.
Beautiful, happy, and real. Just like Sara.

She is dear to me in ways I can’t explain. When I look back 30 years from now the people I love most in this life will grow older in her images– in gorgeous ways that only she can capture.
Grateful.”

When words touch your heart so much, you don’t really know what else to say. I love you, Dunn family. You mean the world to me.

owen is one

September has been wonderful. Crazy, but so wonderful. And, I am thankful. I have been asked a lot lately how I am doing. When you lose a dear friend unexpectedly, your life stops and moves and changes in ways you aren’t prepared for at first. I am not ready just yet to write about my beautiful friend and the impact her LIFE and death has had on me. But, I will get there. LOVE changes you. LIFE changes you. FRIENDSHIP changes you. DEATH changes you. But, our Savior never changes. So thankful for that.

Work reminds me that the gift of love, life, and laughter keep going. They keep coming, too. I get to meet new friends. See old friends. I get to help make babies laugh. I get to ask husbands to love on their wives. I get to ask parents to snuggle a little tighter to their precious children. And, I get to watch tired littles crash into the arms of the only ones that make them feel safe when they just want to close their eyes. It’s a beautiful gift unwrapped at each session. And, I get to unwrap it again when I edit and when I deliver them back to the families. A beautiful reminder that life is so precious. These moments are so precious. Love is so very precious.

I had the most wonderful evening with you, Roberts family. Thank you for welcoming me into your hearts!

jack, caroline, and charlie

OH, how I love this sweet family. I have been photographing them since the very beginning and 3 sweet kiddos later, we are still capturing life. It was the first morning, this season, that I could feel fall coming. That’s the beauty of September and getting up early for a shoot. The light is a little warmer, the air is crisp, and spirits are up for what’s to come!

I love that Ellen brought halloween costumes! Here’s to a new season! Here’s to the season we gather together a little more. The season we give thanks a little more. May this season last a lifetime in our hearts.

Love you guys! SR

ps I have been asked lately about availability this fall. All weekends are completely booked for the remainder of 2016. Oct is completely booked. A little availability left in November and beginning of December. I am forever thankful for you guys.

Oh, this sweet family. There are not new to this blog and I hope I get to share them over and over and over as the years pass. I am always greeted at the door by a cute blonde headed boy who makes faces and giggles at me because he knows he isn’t suppose to open the door. “Go get your momma!” I always say. And, he runs and giggles away. I am always greeted with sincere hugs and love. And, I am always greeted with “You do you, girl!” as I take one of the babies away while they finish up getting ready.

There are genuinely some of the sweetest friends I know. So thankful to spend so much time with them as Holcombe and Sanders grow!

Love, SR

sutton ames brand new

This is one of my favorite sessions, friends. It was so sweet and pure and simple and perfect.

This job has been such a gift to me. I get to watch husbands become dads. I get to see sincere emotion come beaming out of their souls that turn into tears in their eyes. I get to watch amazing women become moms for the first time. I can feel their love for their children. I can feel the new love they have for their husbands. And, I see the way the husbands now look at their wives. It’s powerful. It’s emotions that I wish I could bottle up for families and hand back to them 5 years from now…10 years from now….whenever they need it. Maybe the bottle I am wrapping up are these photographs. Yes!

Sutton Ames, sweet angel, you are dearly loved. And, one day, you will un wrap these photographs and know that you were from the very first day. Can’t wait to watch you grow!

All my love, SR

family in springfield

Now, this is how you wrap up a wonderful first year! Logan and Xander always come to play, but this session, was by far my favorite time with them. I loved the finger pointing like “YEAH, Mrs Sara!” And, the arms stretched out like “Gimme a hug, friend!”. This was one of the first shoots I edited after a really hard few days, so you can only imagine the smiles that were brought back to my heart.

I love seeing families so much during the baby’s first year. I get to see new life. I get to see first smiles. I get to see first claps, first crawls, first pull-ups, and first steps. I get to hear the first words. It’s such a special time of capturing life, but it’s even more special time to be right there with them during the peaks and valleys. And, there are tons, am I right?

So thankful to know y’all, Crosslin family. Thank you for letting me into your hearts. You’ll always be a part of mine.

Love, SR
