One year ago today we were speeding to the hospital as I had the most movie-worthy, drop-to-your-knees contractions. We checked in and about 2 hours later had a tiny miracle in our arms.
They are right in life about some things and the old adage, “girls are different than boys” is definitely true from the start. I thought I had been through it all with Levi, I thought I knew how to handle a baby. Turns out your second child will rip anything you may have known about child raising right away from you. This wild, stubborn and high maintenance child has also given more love, more laughs and more cuddles than I could ever hope for. She is our comedian and I’m also sure she will be the one to make our hair turn gray. Girls. They challenge you daily, but the reward is worth it. They are delicate and so special from the start.
I have loved every minute of having a little girl. Lyla has taught me so much in her first year and we have spent almost every moment of 365 days together. Her personality is larger than life, her appetite is insatiable and her smile and laugh is contagious. Baby girl,
“Your little hand’s wrapped around my finger
And it’s so quiet in the world tonight
Your little eyelids flutter cause you’re dreaming
So I tuck you in, turn on your favorite night light
To you everything’s funny, you got nothing to regret
I’d give all I have, honey
If you could stay like that”
Happy first birthday Lyla Grace. We love you more than life itself.
Sarah is prompt, professional, on-point, and incredibly talented. But, more than that she's fun, and easy to be around, she makes you feel comfortable. My husband and I are not really "in front of camera" people, but Sarah managed to make us feel at ease and happy and (if nothing else) make the pictures look beautiful. Sarah is also a wizard. We got our pictures back SO QUICKLY. They're edited, there are a ton of them, they're beautifully shot. You can tell she loves what she does. You can really see it in the way she cares for you.
"Words can’t describe how amazing Sarah is, her work is exceptional and her personality makes working with her so easy. Almost every married couple will tell you that photography is the most important part of your special day and I can’t agree more. The day goes by so fast and I love that we have every moment documented thanks to Sarah. She has a way of capturing every detail and creating memories that will last forever. I am looking forward to working with her in the future, there’s no one better than her!"
"I would HIGHLY recommend Sarah for any one looking for a wedding photographer. She is amazingly talented and did a beautiful job. She gets you your photos very fast, too! She was kind and professional and she clearly has good instincts for her craft and how to fit her photos to your wedding style."
"I could not suggest Sarah more as a wedding photographer!! She takes breathtaking photos, is incredibly professional and easy to get along with. She has incredible "little touches" as a photographer that make the experience that much more amazing. I would've invited her to my wedding if she wasn't my photographer. She's been a professional photographer for many years and knows what she's doing. Her turn around time is great, and she worked really hard on our wedding day, and editing our photos. I felt like her only bride despite her have multiple weddings every weekend this past fall. AMAZING. "
"The Silhouette Studio delivered the most breathtaking photographs I have ever seen for our engagement session, rehearsal dinner, and wedding. The work simply speaks for itself, but there are so many additional attributes of this specific photographer that contribute to the many high quality ratings she has so rightly earned. Most importantly, her professionalism is unmatched. She kept our wedding timeline completely on track while capturing each and every precious memory in a way that did not take away from enjoying those moments. Her clear vision and assertive nature mean that not a minute of time is wasted waiting around on a day that zooms by so quickly. Sarah is a creative leader who captures timeless keepsakes effortlessly. Her commitment to getting to know her clients really impressed me, and it made following her lead easy and comfortable. Her turnaround time is UNREAL as we got to see all of our wedding pictures before we were married one month! I could not say enough positive things about this photographer or her commitment to growth and excellence. We are so thankful to have found a photographer for ALL of our future lifetime events! "
