I used to be horrible at remembering things. I once told me mom to hold on while we were on the phone because, get this, I couldn’t find my phone. 😬 Luckily, I have gotten a lot better at remembering things. ☺️ But if you ever hear me randomly singing to a tune you’ve never heard, that’s just my way of making something really important stick in my head. I may or may not have also used my finger to write words on my pillow too. 😉 Or have written a thousand todo lists... don’t judge 😜
A photo doesn't have to be perfectly colored or perfectly clear to capture a love story. Sometimes, my favorite images from the night are the ones that other photographers would trash because they don't meet the picture perfect quality. My couple had just cut the cake and I was in the process of walking for a different angle when I caught them snuggling in and quickly took the shot . Nope, my settings weren't compensating for my movement or theirs. But look at the beauty of this image through the natural made moment. Now don't get me wrong, I'm never going to send you all of the photos that are out of focus or too dark or where someone is caught with their mouth awkwardly open. But when I see a sweet, real moment like this--even if it's not the best photo job in the world--my clients receive it. This just might be the photo that they look back on during a big fight one day that helps them remember just how much they love each other.
When people ask me what I do.... I laugh awkwardly. I say, like too often. I smile with my eyes which is going to lead to crows feet. I try my hardest. I am disappointed when I fail. 💖 I judge myself too harshly. I refuse to ask for help. I want everyone to see the glass as half full. I expect dedication because I'm dedicated. 💖 I stand on my tip toes and then jump just so I can reach the garlic powder in my top cupboard. I keep telling myself that one day I'll get a spice rack for the counter so I don't have to jump like a crazy person. 💖 I talk in a mom voice to my cat. I read to my girls every day. I hold my husband's hand whenever I can. I go to church every Sunday. 💖 Oh...did you mean what I do for a living? Like, my job? I use everything I just said to relate to my clients and build a personal relationship with them. In all honesty, nobody is perfect and letting people know that it's ok to be themselves around you is the best way to get photos that show how comfortable, confident and absolutely gorgeous the couple is. ❤ 💖 So here's a photo of me being well....me! Happy Monday, loves! Yours Truly, Sara
