  • Senior Models

    Anna Pociask Photography, LLC Senior ModelsThis is the heartbeat of my business. And a big reason I do a full blown out senior shoot out is to get to know more teens in my area. I truly hope these girls will always remember this day and take away with them an experience they take captive and never forget, so on those crummy days when they may want to believe the lies of the mirror, they remember how beautiful they truly are. My prayer is to impact one girl at a time that their imperishable beauty comes from having a gentle and quiet spirit. I love working with seniors and giving them a unique photoshoot that screams their name.

“You were running well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? This persuasion is not from him who calls you. A little leaven leavens the whole lump” (Galatians 5:7-9 ESV)

So, you were running that race of obedience, wind blowing your hair behind you gently, barely even perspiring. But, in the distance you saw a sign on this road you had  run on many different days that had not been there before. Out of curiosity, you slow down a little and jog toward it. Still not able to see what it says, you strain your eyes until they are completely focused and want to know where it came from. Next thing you know, you realize this was not the path you had taken before at all. Night time was approaching, the warmth of the sun is barely at the horizon. Not able to see any longer, you  hover close to this sign that distracted you, as you know deep down someone must come down to this road to find you. You begin trembling, you fall to your knees and cry out for help….begin running aimlessly in the night. Determined to get out of the darkness, you see the sun rising, and the rays of sunlight shine right on the sign that was in front of you the whole time….Follow me. This way. I am the way, the truth, and the light.

There will be detours in our life that may slow our race of obedience down, but they are never a dead end.

How determined of a racer are we? How many times will we let our curiosity sway our calling? The closer we get away from what God has called on our life, darkness will have its way with us—and its one goal is to slowly destroy us, and to run in the complete opposite direction of what God has for us. Let us commit today that what God has asked of us, we will do in knowing His gifts are way sweeter than any gift from this world.

He has called you to Him. He was waiting on you to let Him guide you. He is waiting for you to realize He wants you to have life, and to have it abundantly.

This wedding took place up on Burrit Mountain, which gave us a lovely view of a storm that was trickling down in the far distance. And I just may have caught some glorious flashes of lightening that made the strong winds and light rain all worth it. This bride…oh my, this bride. She is the definition of beautiful…INSIDE AND OUT. Her style was perfection, and gave us much to work with the day of the wedding. I hope you enjoy a peak into your wedding day!

    Anna…your work is so completely stunning. You have a bright future in this work.ReplyCancel

“O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire” (Matthew 15:28 ESV)

When I first read this, the focus became about me. And how much I do desire to be a woman of great faith. This is a great desire; but there is so much more to this that was revealed to me. This Gentile woman did not make this about herself, but humbly had faith to allow Jesus’ healing ministry to operate.

Here is why this pierced me individually. As I have been running to earthly pleasure in man, even when God asked me gently to give Him a year of my devotion, and to write on my journey to reach many other women dealing with the same traps of giving our bodies and empty love to an earthly relationship. I realize often that I am being no different than the world. The desire I have to not commit to Gods calling on my life is not changing me, it is not growing me, it is only opening more doors to darkness. As O. C. said…”turn away for one second out of obedience, and darkness and death are at work at once.”

My disobedience and my lack of faith keeps me from the light, and keeps me from the blessings of Jesus wanting to use me for His healing ministry to many aching hearts of women.

O.C. also reminded me in his wisdom over the weekend—“Obey God in the thing He shows you, and instantly the next thing is opened up.”

I don’t know what God is wanting to show you, only you know deep down. When will we as women give our whole hearts to the Lord and stop running to what our bodies want. Obedience requires sacrifice. And I know my sacrifice will be giving up the pleasures of being told I am beautiful by a man, cooked for, admired, that instant text if I want it…but what are these things compared to the steadfast love of the Lord. To the blessings He showers down on us each day. And to the constant pursuit of our hearts. Today I pray for my heart to be opened to these blessings as more than enough. That I will take the plunge to “cause my faith to continue to grow, O Lord” (2 Cor. 10:15)

You are not alone in your struggle. You are not alone in wanting man over God. You are not alone in your disobedience. You are not alone in your tears. You are not alone in your confusion.

May you and I let the struggle become a stepping stone for Jesus’ healing ministry in our life and others.

May you and I give our whole hearts to the Lord today. So we can taste true satisfaction that doesn’t linger with guilt and shame.

May you and I obey to what God is calling us to do today.

May you and I pray for one another today as our tears are not meaningless.

May we remember that God is not of confusion, and when we are confused we cast it out in Jesus name as this is not of God.

God is clear with His commands, it is up to us today to obey and commit for our spiritual growth.

Lady in Waiting,

Anna Pociask

    So very true, such a blessing, God’s love for you will give you strength!ReplyCancel

A little about me. I take pride in being called an artist. And if I could make every image spark something within you to gaze at it a bit longer, I’d feel I was doing my job. I want to create emotion. moodiness. and motion. This is what gets my fire going when I am shooting. I mainly shoot weddings, engagements, and seniors, but deep down I wish there were more people that would trust me in their homes, capturing momma with her coffee and bedhead, her 3 year old wrapped around her leg, and the dog running off with her morning read. Why do we always do the typical in the fields, pretty outfits, forced smiles (most of the time)…when kids are so much more apt to be real in the comfort of their home.

This picture below is my son and daughter. It melts my heart, it makes me stare at it because of the emotion and moodiness, the not typical pose, and I can hear their giggles when I look at it. I so badly want to do this for others. You will begin seeing more images like these in my feed, as there are two mommas I will be photographing in their homes soon.

Is this something you desire to have as a keepsake? Contact me and lets make it happen.:)
