TITLE NINE & SRP in HONDURAS
We were so incredibly lucky to travel to Roatan, a small island off the coast of Honduras. It was a dream vacation mixed with the perfect amount of work and play. We got to snorkel in the second largest barrier reef in the world, snuggle with sloths, hang out with monkeys, sip on fresh Honduran coffee and so much more. One of my favorite parts of the day was watching our island guide chop down coconuts with a machete each morning for us to indulge in sweet, raw coconut water. My daughter LOVED it. See behind the scenes images.
Fun little fact - I once lived in Honduras! Between the years of 2006-2008 I lived in Santa Rosa de Copan, worked as a bilingual teacher and started up a non-profit as well. To say my roots run deep in this special country is an understatement. I can't explain how thrilled I was when the opportunity to take my family back to a place I hold so dear fell into my lap. When I lived in the mainland we would jump over to Roatan as often as we could to get a break from 70+ hour work weeks. The island sure has changed a lot in a decade, but the water and the people were still just as beautiful as I remember them.
A HUGE thanks to TITLE NINE for giving me this opportunity and for showcasing these photos in their catalog. This is an incredible company and I am so thrilled to be connected to them. Oh, did I mention they have THE BEST clothing for women, ever?! Go, shop now at: titlenine.com, or visit them on IG at: @titlenine.com
And we want to give a shout out to a couple of our favorite places on the island: Chestnut Gourmet Coffee and IBAGARI boutique hotel. Lastly, and most importantly, a HUGE shout out to Kari Dworkin, our model, Kyle Mears, our behind the scenes photographer, and Marni Dworkin, our shoot assistant. I am forever grateful for all of your support on this dream boat shoot!

Baby carriers! If you have a baby/toddler then this is a MUST for you, moms AND dads! LÍLLÉbaby has quickly become a lead brand in the world of baby carriers and it's easy to see why. From their vast array of colors and patterns to their "easy on the back" design, these carriers have a lot more going on for them than the average baby tote.
We were so lucky to shoot with the wonderful women at LÍLLÉbaby this year. Aside from getting to photograph some seriously amazing product, we had a blast together and braved this beautiful, snowy backdrop in style!
Check out a few of our behind the scenes shots!
Fake baby? Real baby? You tell me. ;)
Mother's Day Sessions will take place on May 20th. We know, that is the week after Mother's Day.

- For the Mother's Day shoot, we want lots of bright, colorful flowers and greens. We are hiring a talented florist to decorate this beautifully lit space. For now, we would love to share our inspiration board with you via Pinterest. Click here to see what we have swirling around in our minds and to see our goal for this shoot.
4. Do you have a recommended wardrobe?

Do you like pet chickens? Horses, dogs? How about the coolest cowgirl mama and her adorable children? Then you are going to love this shoot. Taken in Moab, Utah.
The Knight Family
We all see the best photos from a family session, but what do they others look like? If you are anything like me then you like to see the whole package when you invest in something. I am so happy to share this entire gallery with you guys and I hope that you love it as much as we all do (the family pictured and myself)!
Instead of posing with bunnies or chicks this spring, put on your top hat and twirly dress and dance around uptown! And remember, mini shoots aren't just for little kiddos! Bring your teens over for some fun photos too! Tell your daughter to grab her friends, tell them to put on their prom dresses and dance around together for some memorable photos together! Or tell your son and his girlfriend to pop over and document the first time they ever fell in love. However they choose to take these photos, they will be an amazing memory for them to have forever.

I have to give credit where credit is due and boy oh boy do these two places deserve to be in the limelight!
Wooooooooolllllllllll (I said, "wool" right there in case you didn't catch it). LIVING FELT is based out of Austin, Texas and they kind of know what they are doing. Not only do they have an amazing variety of wool and felting tools, THEY themselves are SO awesome! Their customer service is through the roof and they always add adorable little samples when they send you your goods. And they are fast. Super fast. I couldn't be happier with this company.
Curly wool, colored wool, fluffy wool ... they have it all.
And here are a couple examples of Living Felt wool in use with my newborn photography! Isn't baby Chloe a doll?!
Next up is FANCY TIGER.
They are totally fancy, too. In the best possible way. They are located on Broadway in downtown Denver and they have a large selection of all things, well, awesome! I don't know how else to describe it, but when you take a step into their store you immediately feel creative and inspired. They have THE best collection of fabrics that I have ever seen. Such unique and timeless patterns. I pick up a lot of my newborn posing wraps here. They have an incredible staff team as well and everyone has always been especially friendly and helpful. Particularly for a girl who knows nothing about sewing. Check them out!
Miss Jacqueline is modeling the floral wrap I recently scored at Fancy Tiger. I cut off an end piece and made a matching headband! These are your colors, baby girl. So flattering.
Thanks for stopping in and reading about two of my very most favorite places!
Thanks for stopping in and taking a look at the Sarah Renee Photography studio! This is where the newborn magic happens. We recently remodeled our studio and I am so, so happy with the results. I had to call in a few people for help though ...
A gigantic "thanks" to my husband and father for all of their hard work. They did the big stuff! And my mama helped so much by hanging out with our little Hazelnut while we got to work! Next, a good friend and overall amazing gal, Nicole Edwards, came in and took on the role of "Interior Designer." She did not have to pretend or anything, she has a degree in it and so much experience that I could not possibly list it all. Nicole shared a board with me on Pinterest (much like I do with my clients) and we nailed down a color palette and an overall theme for the studio. She then went shopping with me (so many times) to help me pick out decor that stayed true to my studio vision. She also sent me loads of links to furniture, frames, rugs, etc to purchase online. Once we had all of the things, Nicole laid them out and spatially organized it all before she started hammering away on the walls. That was basically it. It was so simple (for me) and she pretty much rocked my little world. Well, they all did. Thanks mom, dad, love of my life, and Nicole. :)
I would like to quote my most favorite artist in saying,
"... someday when you get where you're going, you'll look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there, and that will be the greatest feeling in the world." (Italics added)
The people who love me are the reason I am here and you're right, Taylor, it is a great feeling.
This is where I edit!
Diaper changing station, mini white stage and other colorful newborn things I obsess over.
A lot of magic happens here. It's quite large and can fit entire families on a couch, standing, sitting, etc!
A view into the sitting area and food table.
Food table and photo wall! If I have been lucky enough to take photos of your little newborn then you know how much food is usually on this table! You don't need to worry about a thing at your session ... we have you covered.
Sitting area. I'm working on filling those frames. I think they are waiting for memories to be made. ;) You can watch Apple TV in here, listen to music, SLEEP (it happens a lot), play the guitar (that happens too), or pull out all of the toys in the chest and play with your older kiddos!
Wraps. Need I say more?
These are the cameras I use to take your photos! Just kidding, but that was funny.
Hats and bonnets and headbands and other fluffy things. If I could go one week without buying a new any of these then I could probably go on vacation. Oh well.
You love taking photos, eh?

I'll show you lots and lots of cool stuff!
