What Childhood Looks Like (in film) | Personal Alert

I have ventured out of my comfort zone to shoot film lifestyle images of my family. There is such a purity. There is so much soul in every image. In every frame.

It feels amazing to finally have imagery that really suits the emotion and mood I strive to capture without having to alter or edit anything in Photoshop. Yes. These are not edited at all. Whether we are hanging around the house, or adventuring somewhere here in Colorado I find that these images really embody the very soul of my children, and myself.

And this is childhood. This is what childhood looks like from day to day in our family.

Please be sure to follow on to my amazing friend Amy Grace HERE to see what her post is this month. She always takes my breath away.

  • what still three looks like | a beautiful life photo - […] Sarah Cornish puts her whole heart into everything she makes and says with kindness. especially her kids. […]

  • amy grace - sarah, it really isn’t very different, is it? but it is. real life you can almost touch. all of these are so tender, it almost hurts my eyeballs. every one of your kids has that look. and coupled by the way they look at you. all goodness, all of you. their childhood looks wonderful.

  • meg - Every single one of these images are beautiful! So full of life!

  • Kara May - Beautiful Sarah!!! This makes me miss you more. I love your soulful images! xoxo

  • Rachel - Absolutely gorgeous Sarah. I think I’ve just been inspired to pick up my old film camera. :)

  • Jamie - Beautiful! Love film and love these!

  • Heather McDaniel - Absolutely wonderful!! I keep looking for a vintage Canon to use. I picked up a couple of film cameras from thrift stores but the one that is manual has a broken exposure. :/

  • roxanne - there is simple, quiet beauty in each of these. your love for your children, sarah, is crystal clear. and the trust in their eyes as they look at you… the way they bare their soul to you takes my breath away. beautiful work with film!! trying something new always breathes new life into us. good for you for taking on the adventure xoxo

  • Summer Murdock - Oh Sarah…these are so good. How freeing to have ZERO editing to do…I bought a film body about 6 months ago and it still has my first unfinished roll in it. Maybe I should finish it.

  • Stephanie Moore {Tucson AZ Photographer} - Holy cow Sarah these are incredible. I love the grain and the rawness to these images, just stunning. Your kids are so beautiful!

Letters to my Daughters | Dearest Sophia

Every month I write a letter to my children. I have been a part of an amazing group of women for over two years now and treasure these letters and these ladies I share such a special project with dearly!

Please continue on to my amazing friend Stephanie of Lifeographer’s blog HERE to read her letter.

Dearest Sophia,

The winds of change are upon us. Daily you seem to grow just a bit more. Change just a bit more. You are so bright and so incredibly receptive. You soak up life and wonder like a sponge. You have that same curiosity about every little thing possible and yet you have a bit of an old soul and the mature way in which we can have our little chats and conversations warm my heart.

You are so vibrant. So full of life. So beautiful and so incredibly amazing. We spend so much time together and I am realizing that the fall will be here before I know it and you will be heading off to kindergarten with a backpack overflowing with dreams and ideals. I won’t be able to go with you. I will have to let go of my grip, finger by finger and watch you fly. I have given you those very wings. You will do just fine.

Even so, I will miss our impromptu day trips to your favorite store (target) and our Starbucks runs. I will miss our frolics in the mountains and our cuddle sessions while I work and the other kids are in school. I will miss being the center of your world. As selfish as that sounds I will miss that almost the most.

I just love you so much Jelly Bean.

And I am trying not to rush so far ahead I forget to live in the now and get all the extra snuggles and hugs and time alone with you. That is the hardest part of all.

Stay Little Please,


  • shalonda - oh sarah i love her spunk and of course her sense of style is just perfect! i can “see” all of that about miss s without even reading your words, i can see so much of that in the beautiful way you capture her…and the last line…yes to that

  • Rashmi - That stars and stripes outfit is ridiculously cute! What a spunky little girl! Love these photos Sarah. I know you will enjoy these small moments with her before she heads off to Kindy. I still miss those moments so much and my youngest is now in 2nd grade. I wish I had had more time before kindy started.. even just one more year. They grow up too fast. :(

  • wendy - awww… so cute… and I cannot wait to see what you do with film!

  • Debbie Wibowo - I’ve been watching her grow since 2010 and I can truly tell she’s a one mighty girl. One day, she will fly very fine and you will be balling your eyes out because of happy tears.

  • Kirsty - Oh Sarah, when did she grow up so much? She’s suddenly a real little miss and not a toddler anymore. Her spirit is wonderful – it shines from your words and pictures sweetie x

Letters To My Daughters | Dearest Sophia

Sweet Sophia,

It has been quite a while since my last letter and I admit this is somewhat overdue. Our family has undergone a bit of change and you have really began to grow and adapt and live right up to the challenges that have come your way. We welcomed a little baby boy into our family, a little brother seemingly just for you. You were the baby for many years and we all held our breath with anticipation as you met him for the very first time. Since that fateful moment it has been nothing but love behind your eyes. You want to help with every little thing.. and I let you. I let you because you are truly helpful but I also let you because I know that you see how important you are and how much you are coming to mean to your little Ezra. I watch how you coo over him and how his very first smiles are often aimed at you. I see how when you hold him you are careful to support his neck and you whisper in his tiny ears little bits of love and affirmation just as I do to you.  You are another little mommy to him.  I am always in awe of the dynamic and how sweet it is to watch you two.

I also know that despite your brave face there are moments when you need me all to yourself and I do my very best to accommodate you there. Not out of duty, but out of love. I want you to know you are just as special if not more so, and I am proud of you. I am so proud of you. And I love you. And you will always be our baby too.

Love you!

Now please head to my amazing friend Emma of Emma Wood Photography HERE and read her letter to her sweet girl!

Also as a special note thank you SO much to My Little Jules for sending this beautiful dress. It made Sophia feel so special!

  • Cynthia - Such beautiful words and photos.

  • Kirsty - It is SUCH a delight to see these two together after all those months of anticipation – I am not surprised her nurturing side is shining through – she gets that from her Mama and it is beautiful xx

  • Melissa - Sarah, your work is always so beautiful. I love the stories you tell with your photography. Gorgeous!
