Sisters | East Bay Family Photographer

Had to post these today :).  Couldn’t resist…

Aren’t they so sweet!  I love this sequence and just had to share it!


For what it’s worth, while these images connote a serene, loving, tranquil atmosphere – the actual experience of capturing these images was nothing like that.  I’m pretty sure that at one point during the shoot there was a dachshund barking LOUDLY in my left ear.  If I remember right it took 3 adults (drinking adult beverages) to actually get through the entire photo session and earlier in the evening one child actually bit the other one (not these two…different ones…ones I am legally and morally responsible for…).


Taking pictures is crazy and nuts.  It never goes the way you think it’s going to go and it’s always stressful.  But I love every minute of it.  I love it because I know that hidden in those moments of chaos are moments like the ones documented above.  And because we stuck with it and didn’t get discouraged, we now have those moments forever.   We experienced the chaos but will hold onto beauty.  It’s worth it.

(Sort of like parenting.)


Is your family a little chaotic, loud and unpredictable :)?  Bring it on…we will capture amazing moments together.

Merrilee - Oh Sara! These are so beautiful and so very sweet. I can identify with you on every level :) It’s most definitely worth the chaos for moments like these. Just precious!
