What an honor it was to be able to do pictures for Dr. Sarah Shoemaker! Not only only did she just become Dr. Sarah Shoemaker but she helped deliver two of my babies! You can imagine the pressure I was feeling at her session! I ALWAYS want to do my absolute best no matter who I am photographing but when someone has given so much to you already you just want to be able to give back! Sarah was there for me as my doula when I wanted to do a 100% all natural birth. Without her I am not sure that I would have been as well prepared to take on such an AMAZING experience. I am so incredibly thankful to Sarah!
The best thing about Sarah's session is she is not the type of person who wants to put herself in the spotlight and she definitely wasn't the biggest fan of being in the spotlight for an hour in front of my camera! It was so much fun getting her to relax and capture that happy-go-lucky attitude Sarah has! A mutual friend of ours came along so it just felt like we were there hanging out! Sarah has the best laugh and smile so it would have been so sad to not capture all of that on camera! Not only that, but I told her that she shouldn't think of this as an all about me session but more of an accomplishment. People don't do senior sessions just because. They get to do them because they WORKED HARD to earn them!
Sarah, or should I say, Dr. Shoemaker, thank you so much for letting me capture and show off your hard work! You deserve the spotlight for this! Congrats to you for going after your hard earned dream! I am so happy for you that you get to spend doing what you love for the rest of your life! Now go deliver those babies (and then come back and tell me all about it!) :)
