9 month old allie girl

Sweet baby girl Allie.  Can’t believe she is already 9 months old AND that our next session will be her 1 year session.  Oh goodness.  All these sweet faces that I have watched grow over the past year are becoming toddlers!!  So hard to believe.

We decided to make this session all about Allie girl.  Met at the Factory in Franklin.  Mom and I got to catch up and I got to capture just how much little bug has blossomed over the past 3 months.  Sitting up, laughing all of the time and loving on her momma like there is no one else in the world like her.  But, there isn’t!  Nothing in the world like the bond between a mom and her sweet baby girl.  So very sweet.

Next session is gonna be lots of fun.  Full of happiness, growth, her sweet big sister and we can’t forget….cake!!  Oh, what will Miss Allie do with her cake?  Check back in 3 months and you will see.

I sure do adore you sweet girl!  See you in 3 short months.

All of my Love, Sara


Heather - Wow sara!! These pictures a wonderful and she is so precious!! I am looking forward to 9 month pictures :-).

sweet baby boy hunter

Meet precious newborn Prince Hunter.  Doll baby, huh?  And one laid back little dude that’s for sure.

Met mom + dad for the first time this visit.  Such a sweet loving duo.  Felt like I had escaped Nashville for a second and landed in the smokey mountains.  And those of you that really know me know that I have a real love for that place.

Anyway, enough about their home.  Let’s talk Hunter.  Strong, beautiful {sorry, handsome}, laid back, already have a special bond both with mom and dad and already geared up to go hunting with dad one day.

Really looking forward to getting to know this family over the next year as I capture Hunter’s first year.  Wonder what we will come up with?  I bet involves lots of Camo, lots of green and brown, but mostly…lots of LOVE.

enjoy this little guy!

See you soon buddy!  All my love, Sara


Desiree - Kelli, he is BEAUTIFUL!!!! We are all gushing over him on 5 Kidd. You can imagine all of us huddled around the computer ooohing and aaahing :) Great pics as usual Sara!

sweet baby girl kensington

Meet the beautiful 1 week old Kensington.  Great name isn’t it?!  I love it!

First time meeting mom and dad….and it was all my pleasure.  I had such a great time getting to know them while capturing Miss Kensie’s beauty.   By the end we realized we had some mutual friends {other than the one who recommended me to mom…Thank You Amber Housley!}  It really is such a small world after all.

I look forward to spending the next year getting to know mom, dad and beautiful Kensington.

On a personal note :: I am starting to get full circle with some of my babies and the end to their “first year” is upon me…it really does fly by FAST.  Especially when I see them every 3 months.  So honored to be THAT person to capture the first year of all these precious babies.  So, Kensie…don’t grow TOO fast sweet girl.  I would like this next year to last a LONG time.

All my love XO, Sara


Debbie Julianna - OMG…..Kensington is fabulous…..just like I knew she would be….God bless you all on this little miracle! Love you you!

Amber - Oh my goodness! The one of Meagan looking down on her is so beautiful! Love them all! XOXO

Allison Weir - She is absolutely beautiful! Such a precious little girl. GREAT pictures. Congratulations!!!

drew + kristy e session

Meet the soon to be Mr and Mrs Schreiner.  Beautiful, huh?  Yeah, I know…tough job I got ya know.  :)

This sweet couple is getting married on the popular wedding date of 10.10.10 and I am SO lucky to have been asked to capture that special day for them.

So, before the BIG DAY you gotta have engagement photos, right?  RIGHT.  So, we decided to go downtown for some fun urban shots since they like a lot of color and a lot of class {check out Mr Drew’s attire}.  Yes, I was impressed.  Pretty lucky to have such a beautiful gal by his side.  But, he knows how lucky he is.

We met at one of Drew’s friends shop and then headed downtown for some fun.  Had a great time with you guys and look forward to your special day.  It’s going to be amazing!!

All my Love XO, Sara


Amber V - Sara these are gorgeous!! Fabulous job!!

beautiful senior heather

I was SO excited about this shoot.  It’s been in my books for about 3 months!!  My very first Senior!!  Fitting that Miss Heather will be a 2011 graduate of Riverdale High School {my alma mater}!  woop woop GO WARRIORS!  Okay, I am not a Cheerleader anymore, but still a big fan of RHS.

Anyway, I threw it out there a few months back that I wanted to add Senior Portraits to my portfolio and I was offering a deal to the first 3 that contacted me.  So Happy Heather’s momma was the first to do that.   Too bad no one else is booked for a Senior shoot…hmmm…I bet they will be disappointed after they see these pictures!

Wowzers Heather is stunning.  But, she is even more beautiful on the inside.  This girl knows what she wants, smart, witty, classy…I could go on!  I look forward to watching her fly once she graduates next year and seeing where life takes her.  I can only imagine it will be to wonderful places surrounded by one loving family and some amazing friends.

Dear Heather — So happy you were #1 for me….I adore you and I HOPE this isn’t the last time I get to spend a few hours with you capturing your beauty!  Make wonderful memories this next year.  Congratulations new friend!  YOU, my dear, will do GREAT things!!

All my Love, Sara


Kelly B. - The one with her in the middle of the road, on the chair with her arm up (in color)–WOW! The shoes, the hat, her eyes! I love all of these! I hope Susan mails me one! :)

dobbs family + the rest of the family

This shoot was hilarious.  Really, truly was.  But, I LOVED IT.  Hey, my tag line is capturing laughter & life….all because of love!!!  And, boy did I adore this family by the end.

The plan..there’s always a plan, right?  Was to get sweet mom Alison & her family photographed, then to capture her precious daughter Lilly and lots more of 6 month Grant.  He was sitting up like a big boy, but little punkin wouldn’t crack a smile for nobody.  Not even for grams and pops…who showed up with Alison’s sister and her family.  Lots of laughs, lots of candid moments…lots of Life.  It was fantastic.

The best part…and there were a ton was when sweet Grant put on his overalls that were worn by previous generations.  So very sweet.

Rule #1 — expect the unexpected.  Rule #2 — kids will be kids.  Rule #3 — see the beauty in candid moments.  {im just sayin’}

Thanks Alison and family for being so fun, relaxed and letting the good times roll!!  Hope to see all of you this fall!

XO, Sara


Jenny - Grant is way too cute and I love that he didn’t crack a smile. Such great pics!

all for charlie and laney

Spent Sunday morning with one of my favorite families.  The Baltz family…well, Brooke is now a Nicholson and Mel is a Scott, but they will always be “baltz” girls to me.  You might remember new momma Brooke and her maternity photos.  She was stunning back then and glowing even more today.  And, boy oh boy does she love 3 month old Charlie bug!!  So very sweet the love between a momma and her son. {i should know I have 2 monkey boys!}.

Anyway, Brooke’s beautiful sister and her adorable daughter Laney came over to join in on the fun.  Sweet cousins, sweet sisters, precious family.

I had such a great time!!

See you pretty ladies + Charlie soon!

XO, Sara
