We have been working with Sara for almost two years now, starting with our maternity shoot when I was pregnant with our twin girls. However, we have known Sara and seen her incredible work for years more than that, since she has been shooting one of my very best friend’s family for more than half a decade. I was ecstatic when it was finally my “turn” to start the Baby’s First Year sessions with Sara, and could not be more pleased with the moments she has been able to capture in our lives. We just finished our seventh photoshoot with Sara, who I now consider a dear friend.
My life these days with 18-month old twins is a little hectic to say the least. I’m constantly snapping pictures on my phone, but most are blurry since my girls are always on the go. It’s nearly impossible to get one that includes both girls (let alone smiles from both), and few ever include me. So now more than ever, I treasure these pictures from Sara, since these pictures rarely happen in day-to-day life.
But most importantly, Sara captures the life and love of our family in these shots, something that we would not have tangible reminders of any other way. The silliness, the giggles, the looks, the family moments that never get captured except in our hearts. Sometimes on our normal days, I think to myself, “These are the best times, these are the moments that I’ll treasure, I hope I never forget how my daughters and my husband look as they look at me, laugh, play, etc.” Then I get pictures back from a session with Sara and I think, “YES. Those are the looks, those are the smiles, those are the ways we laugh that I want to remember and now I’ll be able to see them forever because Sara has captured them for us.”
Thank you, Sara, for being such an important part of our lives. We love you so much!
