After a whole week of birthday celebrating and quasi-staycation with Buck, I’m heading out to Las Vegas tomorrow morning for WPPI— the largest photographer’s convention in the world. I haven’t been since 2012, and I’m stoked to see so many close friends and learn from so many amazing photographers. Each year I go with a very clear intention and goal, […]

Dear world: Today is my birthday!!! Today I turn 30. I’m more excited than is typically expected for a woman reaching this number. But then again, I’ve always loved birthdays. Not so much the celebration part (please don’t make me the center of attention!), but because it marks a new chapter, a new season, something fresh. I […]

Marriage in the coming, and the going, and in the in-between. I’ve mentioned it before— the Bradshaws are in a particularly intense season of busyness, travel, and work. I suppose that technically speaking, this is my slow season (I haven’t photographed a wedding in over 2 months), but work certainly hasn’t slowed down for me. And it’s […]

  • Rici - Thank you for sharing on this personal topic Sarah.
    This sounds like many challenges and I will surely come back to read it over if I face those challenges.

  • Natalie - Girl, I literally just sent you an email and now that I see this blog post… I feel this giant sense of relief knowing that you totally get how precious time is with your significant other… Love you! And this post is perfect!ReplyCancel

  • Ashley Herrinton - Love this Sarah! Thanks for sharing!! Ty and I are hoping to steal some time away as well once we’re back in the same place before wedding season kicks off! I love that you guys are prioritizing the things that matter and being honest about the hard stuff!! It’s so encouraging and uplifting for a girl who is currently missing her husband who is away!!ReplyCancel

  • Ashley - Enjoy your time together!ReplyCancel

  • Lauren - This is so sweet and such good advice! I am still single and can see that it will only get more difficult to meld my life and another’s into one as I get older, but God’s grace is up to the task!ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer Olmstead - One fun thing I’ve gotten to do a few times when Aaron’s been gone or I’ve been gone is either send a package with a few notes / fun things to open each day, or leave them for him if I’m the one gone, labeled by the day (like special things for his coffee, since I’m not there to make it, or just a note, or something to entertain him while he’s gone). Obviously, that’s not sustainable for EVERY trip, but it’s a fun occasional surprise!ReplyCancel

  • Megan Garrison - “It looks like working extra hard when we’re apart so that we can set work aside and take time off when we’re together.” YESS! love this!!ReplyCancel

  • Michael and Carina - Love the devotion and dedication you share!ReplyCancel

Every so often, when going through wedding photos, I’ll stumble on a gem of a picture taken by a second shooter— one of me, in action. I’m rather camera shy, so instead of posting these throughout the year, I prefer to keep them until the end of the season and put them all together in […]

I woke up early yesterday morning, sick. I’ll spare you the details, but let me just say that I was sooooo happy to cancel all appointments and spend the day on the couch. I left the laptop closed for the morning, but even on sick days I have a hard time checking out altogether, so I found […]

  • Allix Ruby - This is such a sweet and wonderful idea, Sarah! I sometimes feel guilty knowing I may or may not get to do full blogposts of all the weddings I shoot but it doesn’t mean I don’t love the work I created there! I’m storing this inspiration away for possible future use. ;)

    And these are wonderful as always! :)ReplyCancel
