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!

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.

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.

I first met this sweet crew when big brother was just a few years old.  Dressed up in his Woody Costume I knew we would be fast friends.  Now, that big boy is SIX and has a little sis that I’ve been spending this past year photographing at brand new, 6 months and one year!  First year babies will always hold a special place in my heart because I get to watch them grow and I get to know families really well.  I have loved every session with this crew.  We laugh, we play, we talk and I shoot.  This particular February Saturday was beautiful and sunny.  Fill it with a sweet happy family, my new kelbysews heart quilt, a successful smash cake, sunshine and love…well, my friends, you’ve got yourself a session I love!  Hope you enjoy them, too!

Have a great week, friends!!

XO, SR

the geniune article captured and cherished

I have started typing away….backspace….re-typing…backspace.  It’s like I have no idea where to even start this post.  Quite rare.  It’s like I have so much I want to say about THIS session & THIS family, but words aren’t coming out the way I’d hope they would.  So, I am just going to write this….I had a SO-fun session celebrating Emma Cole at 15 months a few Wednesday’s ago.  It was an early session at the Factory in Franklin, but the sun was shining!  The SUN!!!  We haven’t seen it much this year.  But, on this particular day it was shining bright.  I know I am not the only soul who needed it.  Anyway, this particular session was special.  This family always comes into sessions trusting me completely and just letting it flow naturally.  In the past it has taken Emma a bit to get comfortable, but not this time.  Nothing in this world that I want more than the sweet babies to trust me and to have fun during picture time.   I told Amy after the session that this one would be amazing.  Probably her favorite.  It’s easy to capture LOVE & JOY when it’s shining brightly for you to see.

What I didn’t expect is that when I would send the slideshow that Amy would send me the most beautiful words ANYONE has ever sent me after a session.  I cried.  Shared it with my husband.  Cried some more.  This year has been completely different ball game for SRP.  I’ve slowed down tremendously.  My own choice.  But, it’s been different.  Being so busy in the past I never had time to let self-doubt creep in.  Oh, but now…it’s screaming loud in my ear…all of the time.  But, gosh.  When Amy sent this…it was like The Lord told  her to speak to me…. “don’t give up, Sara….keep doing YOU and you will be okay”.  So, Amy…you truly have no idea what your words did to my spirit.  I love this job.  I love capturing LIFE.  And, I pray every single day I get to do it for a very long time for people just like YOU…….
