pretty little extras from today's shoot with @empressstationery! πŸ’

night walks with our Leo bud. we're overjoyed to have our fur baby back home πŸ’™ [for those who may not know, we lost our buddy for about 4 days. we were torn up about it but were hopeful for his return and he showed back up at our door early saturday morning☺️]

when you're at the beach and snag the most precious momma and baby snuggles, you can't help but share πŸ’•

ok friends, real life time. the past several weeks have been exhausting. we have moved into a new house, had deaths in the family, marriages, and of course the normal day to day highs and lows. a few minutes before this photo was taken, i was telling a friend how i felt sweaty & gross & my hair was falling out & i was just tired. i was struggling to be in the moment & enjoy this beautiful evening (hubby's brother got married!). i asked hubs if we could snag a picture real quick (while the light was still good, of course πŸ€“) & we took our "normal" cute picture but then he tackled me with kisses! this is totally cheesy & y'all know i like cheese, but goodness in that moment, the feelings of being sweaty, gross, tired, & overwhelmed completely melted away & i could finally just be present & feel the love in the air. from that point forward, we danced & laughed & celebrated the new bride & groom. it was perfect. .
.
what brightens your day when you're feeling gross & overwhelmed? .
.
(PS by hair falling out, i mean my little bun/up-do thing wasn't staying intact, not that hairs are literally falling out of my head more than a normal amount. just to clarify πŸ™ƒ) #bebonafide #reallife #jkinstachallenge

alright friends. the last day of the #jkinstachallenge is to share about goals in your business. i've, of course, thought of my goals, but to actually put them out there for the world to see is kind of terrifying. what if i fail? what if i don't accomplish my goals? well, i suppose i'll never know the outcome if i don't give it a shot (cheesy, i know, but i like cheese). .
.
so, now that you know just how nervous i am to tell you about this, here we go!
1.) work in the creative world full time.
2.) photograph a wedding (hence the detail shot of a wedding dress πŸ‘°πŸ½). 3.) get to know other photographers in bham & build community. .
.
these are all things i'd like to accomplish this year. they are things that are out of my comfort zone but i know are vital to pursuing my dream & growing my business. .
.
what are your next goals in your business? or even in life! for real, i want to know. i want to stand beside you & encourage your growth and boldness. whatever your thing is, you've got this! // #bebonafide #birminghamphotographer

teeny tiny brand new baby feets get me every time. his rockstar momma labored all night & most of the day until he greeted us the next evening. that morning light brought the sweetest peace into the room.

more sweet little feets and brand new baby moments on the website! [link in bio -> family gallery] #jkinstachallenge #newbornphotography #birminghamnewbornphotographer

if you've ever met me, you know how much i love my boys. πŸ’™ if you haven't met me, that's them up there (^^^) & they have my heart! .
.
hubs is austin, pup is leo. these two greet me with giant smiles & kisses & snuggles when i get home. we are unapologetically weird together - by "we" & "together" i really mean hubs & i are doing something ridiculous & leo is tilting his head looking at us like, "mom, dad...whatcha doin'?" my family is a huge part of me. .
.
if you asked them about me, austin would say: "she's beautiful, light-hearted, giggly, & loves dusty blue a little too much. she's a judgement free zone unless you don't wash your hands (germaphobe). she finds joy even in the smallest things." .
.
leo would say: "mom loves snuggles & so i snuggle with her until I get too toasty & then i must go. when i'm looking really cute and she tries to take my picture, i look away because mom don't take my picture, duh." *obviously insert goofy doggy voice* .
.
fun fact: pup is a mini aussie! any other aussie (or other doggy) mamas out there?! #jkinstachallenge #aussiesofinstagram

hi friends! if you don't know me, my name is sarah moore [or s'moore]. my natural habitat includes no makeup, a top bun, & is preferably in the sun. i hate pickles & like lowercase letters. i shamelessly love puns and use them in my everyday language. .
2 questions for ya.
1.) what does your natural habitat look like?
2.) what's your favorite pun?! .
.
.
ok total transparency here: this is straight up terrifying. no lie, when i started this post, the anxiety kicked in and i didn't want to post anything. i don't want to know how many minutes i spent choosing a photo. .
this morning when the challenge of posting a photo with "fun facts" about myself was presented, i was all confident and like it's so fine, i've got this. all of a sudden, i felt like there wasn't anything worth knowing or showing about me. i wanted to look at what other people posted to compare what i'd come up with versus what they had. then i had to stop myself. i will not play the comparison game. i will think about myself the same encouraging things i think about others. and i'm stopping the excessive rereading of this post to be sure it is "perfectly imperfect."
.
so, this photo - top bun, no makeup, freckle faced from the sun, holding a bunch of wildflowers - is my truest me. #jkinstachallenge #bebonafide

Good morning friends! Who likes to start their day with pretty florals? (πŸ™‹πŸ») If only I could wake up to this gorgeous mantle arrangement by @e_kathleenvarner every morning, I think I'd be in heaven! πŸ’• .
.
Her work adorned @bustlegowns the day of the @empressstationery collection launch party and every bit was nothing short of stunning! .
