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…….
