Hope and Memory Photography bio picture
  • I help clients capture their child’s personality. Oh, and I’m really good at acting (I used to be a performer in a former life), terrific at eating dessert (my fat jeans would definitely agree), and my Russian accent is stellar (Russians have confused me for an actual Russian until I give them a blank face when my Russian vocabulary runs out). Clients love my creative whimsical photos and are always commenting on how I’ve captured them in such a unique and beautiful way. Personally, I think my ability to return emails faster than Superman’s flight speed is pretty impressive. My Momma thinks I’m determined and that I have great hair and beautiful eyes. My friends envy my ability to balance everything on my overly full plate (they should be envying my husband because I certainly couldn’t do it without him). My clients love that I effectively capture their family and bottle moments in time for them to savor for years to come; I help them hold on to their memories.

Ophelia looks disgusting and there has already been at least one high chair picture. In my defense, she is at a super-fast-run-around-and-never-stop-long-enough-for-mom-to-grab-her-camera stage and just about the only time I can catch her is when she is strapped in. So there. Plus, she enjoyed her first mochi ball here, which accounts for the “What is that gross oddly colored slimy stuff all over her?” factor.

Juliet was able to write her very own Valentine’s for the first time this year. I was pretty proud of her considering she is only 5 and not even in kindergarten yet. I never said that they were all legible, but she tried and for the most part did a good job so it counts in my book.:)

My Sweetheart

I thought today would be a perfect day to show off the amazing Mr. Vasquez, my darling husband. Let me introduce you.

This is my love.

This is my favorite picture of him (pretty much of all time) because it shows a side of him that most don’t get to see.
I love that special smile that is given to so few people.

Chris is pretty amazing at literally everything. If you replace gold with success, then he is kind of like King Midas. He has so so so many talents that it confounds (and frustrates) me. Unfortunately, this darling man doesn’t have time to devote to any of them. Chris is working full time and going to school full time while still trying to be a Daddy and a husband. It’s hard on all of us, but it is especially hard on him; not only does he have to do go to school and work but he also has to deal with knowing

how disappointed we are when he walks out the door. I know it is a huge burden and yet he still is so strong through all of it, usually with a positive attitude and a joke or two to boot.

When I met and fell in love with him as a little naive 13 year old girl, I could have never imagined where our life would take us. All I knew was that I loved him and I let him know it often (much to his chagrin… and my embarrassment when I look back on it). We got married right out of high school after only officially dating for about 11 months. Obviously, people assume the worst when a not quite 18 year old marries her 19 year old boyfriend. It was not a shotgun wedding, but we were blessed when Juliet showed up 4 days after our 1st anniversary. The following year we moved across the country (to Seattle, yay!) and continued our life-journey. I graduated from College the Summer before Ophelia showed up. Through this very condensed version of our life together this man has stood by my side and supported me in whatever way he could. He has loved and cared for our daughters to the best of his ability. He has his faults and we’ve had our rough patches, but he is the perfect one for me. He is my soul mate. He is the love of my life and I wouldn’t trade him for anything.

erica - *eyes watering*
Beautiful post. Thank you for sharing.
This is one of my all time favorite pictures of yours.
Superb…in every way.

Sarah - Thank you, Erica. He is such a special man and rarely gets the credit he deserves. I love this picture too! It is hanging on my living room wall in the form of a canvas. :)

Jim White - This was indeed a wonderful post Sarah . . may our dear Lord keep and bless you all . . hope to be able to visit some day soon . .

DefinitelynotMe - What a pimp!

Holly C - This is so fun to read! My husband is going to school about 13 hours a day right now, so I know the feeling of that, and though he and I are 7 years apart, we started dating when I was 16 (had known each other for a few years), and got married when I was 18. Landon arrived 11 months into our marriage…and I would never ever change it. :)

Project 52: Week Five | Seattle Family photography

I’m beginning to think I will never post a week’s photos on the actual week it belongs to.  Partially because I don’t always get the photos done until Sunday night and mostly because I’m really good at procrastinating.:)

I’ll admit it, I’ve been feeling un-inspired this week and was really struggling with getting shots that aren’t repetitive.  Everyone is always commenting on my girls’ eyes (even though they are so starkly different) so I thought I would do a couple headshots because they are easy to show off those eyeballs that get so much attention.  I’m kinda sad that I put them in black and white because I would love for you to see the depth of color but the lighting was so very very different (and bad) in these that I didn’t really have a choice without spending far too long fixing them, so black and white it is (plus, I secretly love playing with new black and white conversions)!  There are still 47 weeks left to get their eyes in color so I’m not to worried about it.  Here’s hoping next week brings me some inspiration – maybe in the form of some gorgeous flowers… are you listening, my darling husband?;)

Project 52: Week Four | Seattle baby photography

Man, this week went by fast!  It has been a busy week for me and since this is from the week of 1/23/11 – 1/29/11 I am WAY behind.  So, rather than really attempt to do along schpiel, I’ll simply show you this week’s (and by this week I think we all know I really mean last week) set.

Juliet has been very into the Star Wars Lego Xbox game recently.  This picture shows her defeating the evil AT-ATs on Hoth.  She was excited.:) The goal for Ophelia this week was to catch a smile.  She smiles a LOT but Momma is always the one making her smile.  Or Juliet.  But there is no way I would show you a photo of our perpetually toy and laundry laden abode, so that really cuts down on the times I can catch Juliet getting Ophelia to smile.  Instead, we went to the park and swang (swung? swinged?) hit the swings.  That was a surefire smile-getter.  So, here she is, with a coy little half smile.  It isn’t ideal, but it proves she does make more than one facial expression.   Until next time…

Project 52: Week Three | Seattle children’s photography

So it turns out that it is surprisingly

hard to get different photos for each week. I guess that is sort of the point of this (well, one of the points anyway). It is so easy to just go to my old standby shots that I know will work, but I already have 9,781 photos of Juliet’s face – I love close-ups, if you hadn’t noticed;)– so it is good to push myself to find more interesting other perspectives with my own children. That being said, this week

(read: “last week,” yes… still catching up!) finds Ophelia sharing a special moment with her Daddy during supper – I swear, she isn’t naked all the time… just during most meals, and she seems to eat constantly – and Juliet showing off a cut in her Irish step dancing class. Someone asked me “Does Ophelia ever smile?!” the other day. To which, I responded, “All the time! Why?” And that’s when she pointed out that Ophelia is not smiling in any of my recent photos of her. Next (this) week’s goal: get an Ophie smile!
