expecting baby

I am typically a wordy gal, but today I just want to let the photos do the talking. This shoot was incredible. This family is so very precious to me. And, I am SO thankful to start the journey with them again soon as we capture a new baby’s first year. What a joy, y’all!!

So, here are just about 75 reasons why I love capturing families, toddlers, baby bumps during the summer at sunset.

Love, Sara

live in each season

Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air; drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth. – Thoreau

I loved reading that quote as we walked the Columbus Zoo a few weeks back. We haven’t been to the zoo since I had to carry two screaming toddlers out of the dino exhibit in Nashville, so I was excited about my BIG BOYS experiencing it the way I hoped they always would. In awe and wonder of these magnificent creatures.  We were greeted by a lot of furry new friends and we stayed hush as we passed the sleeping giants. We were in awe and wonder from start to finish. As we were heading out this quote from Martin Luther struck me “Everything that is done in the world is done by hope”. I laid his words on my heart as we entered back out into the very loud world. And, I have thought about those very profound words ever since.

Our reason for being in Columbus that weekend was to support our number one guy. Thankful for the weekend away. Thankful for the lessons. Thankful for the memories.

lily and graham

I remember like it was yesterday. We were shooting Lily’s session in downtown Franklin and mom handed me a stack of shirts to pick for an outfit change. “BIG SISTER!” was on the last one. It was the sweetest way any client has ever told me they were expecting again. Humbling because I was one of the first to know. Baby Graham was on his way.

And, I remember like it was yesterday the day the told me they were moving away. It was last summer. I was so happy for them, but so sad for me. They’ve moved away and Tennessee still misses them greatly! So, I was very grateful to get that email about them wanting to travel in for a shoot. We had the very best morning down in Murfreesboro at Old Fort Park.  We played and laughed and captured life. My favorite.

It means more than they will ever know that they came back for this special day.

Love you guys!

Summertime family session

“In the mommy trenches sometimes its hard to see these beautiful little people that love us despite our faults. I’m so grateful to see the love. Thank you for always being you. It allows us to be us!”

Gentle reminders of grace.

It’s been a great summer, friends. I have loved SO MUCH spending time with the dozen or so of you. I have thought a lot about summer sessions lately and how wonderful they have truly been. Two weeks left. Can y’all believe it? I am so thankful to the new friends I have met. I am so thankful to the constants who come back year after year (you guys truly hold a special place in my heart). It’s such a blessing to watch babies grow up and capture who they are and get to witness who they are becoming. My first newborns are heading into 1st grade this year, y’all!

Gentle reminders of His faithfulness.

“Our family began our journey with Sara four and a half years ago. I was 32 weeks pregnant with Luke, now four years old. We saw Mrs. Sara every three months his first year. Soon after, we began the journey again when we learned of our pregnancy with Ella. Every single time I get the photos back, I think, “These are my FAVORITE!” Every.single.time! She amazes me with her ability to capture these moments that are truly like works of art. The walls in my house are adorned all with images that she has taken over the years. I truly can’t believe that its been four years, but I’m soooo thankful all those years ago I went with my gut and chose Sara. She is more than a photographer. She’s a friend, my kids adore her, and her work speaks for itself. Thank you dear friend for your time, patience with kids who want to play, and these images that portray my family. I see so much love in these pictures. Thank you for capturing that! It means more than words…”

Always thankful.

happiest baby

This sweet angel baby is the happiest baby on the block. At newborn she was a gem, at 3 months she was happy as a clam, and now at 6 months….happy still! We had the very best morning at Ellington Ag Center just making our way around the grounds to capture life.

So thankful for the little ones, guys. They remind me to notice the ducks…the birds….and, the flowers. They remind me that a splash of water on a hot day, a kiss after a little talk, and a hug can make things better. With so much chaos, there is beauty to be found. Always.

Here’s to looking up. Here’s to LOVE.

Love you guys!

Sunshine baby girl

One of the greatest blessings of this job is reconnecting with some of my oldest friends.

I didn’t make the 7th grade cheerleading squad and I remember like it was a yesterday a note Mary gave me that said she was so sorry. But, to not give up. And, I remember the email she sent when my grandma Sally passed that said “I don’t know how people get through tough times without faith”. She was the first person to ever say that to me. We have tons of stories in between the note in middle school and the sorrow we exchanged 5 years ago when she lost her sweet mom and I lost my grandma. Lots of stories. I cherish so many. But, this new story (to me), the one that involves her amazing husband and sunshine baby girl, is my favorite. What a joy filled evening capturing her life, love, and happiness.

I loved this night with y’all, Ranz family. Filled my soul right up.

All my Love, Sara Rose

Mary Ranz - Thank you Sara for your kind words….you know…I didn’t make the 7th grade cheerleading squad either. 😜 Many things in life have not gone as I planned but HIS plan is always perfect although often hard to see. The pictures you took are priceless and I am now officially a Sara E Rose addict. 😄 The time spent with you the other night was wonderful. I love what God is doing in your life. You are pretty amazing and special! Thank you again.
