Coming soon….this lovely wedding with the perfect colors a photographer dreams of photographing.
Resistance cannot be seen, touched, heard, or smelled. But it can be felt. We experience it as an energy field radiating from a work-in-potential. It’s a repelling force. It’s negative. Its aim is to shove us away, distract us, prevent us from doing our work. –Pressfield
Tomorrow I will be embarking on an adventure of a lifetime (so, I hope)….I am heading to Las Vegas for my first time to WPPI!! I have waited many years to go, and I finally have the chance to go with great friends!
I truly believe this year is the year for me because in the past year the art that has been felt inside of me, has come alive through my pictures…And there are many days I have to fight the temptation of giving up, throwing my dreams away, and doubting who I am as an artist, a mother, a wife, and any other role I may play in this life…It’s easy to get caught up in comparing my work to others that have made it to the top, but when I let the person that God made me to be come alive, all those lies disappear..and I am reminded that my status does not come from the work I produce, or the images I create….but they come from the many hours I dedicate and pour into my children, my husband, and my family….
I have never pursued this passion for glory….but honestly pursued it as a ministry. I strive for each session to reflect the beauty and the romance God has put on this earth.
I wear many different hats that all make me who I am as an artist, mother, and wife…..
These flowers represent my growth as a woman of God, a mother and wife, and an artist……may I only continue to grow and blossom into the beautiful woman God wants me to be….May that beauty reflect… A WOMAN WHO FEARS THE LORD IS TO BE PRAISED. Prov 31:30
Yes, flowers fade….but, when the beautiful flower blooms and then dies, it grows again into a new creation all over again, just as beautiful, but new, stronger, more vibrant, full of life…….may my life reflect a beauty that is always being renewed, refreshed by the One who makes all things new…….
