Exciting News!!!!


Well, for starters I bought the camera I've been wanting for FOREVER!!! I love it, I really do. I am about to start a new venture in photography. I have always loved the creative process behind photography. I started using my Dad's old manual film camera when I was a kid and continued to play around with my trusty ole' point-and-shoot just to be creative. Now, the timing is finally right to pursue this passion more seriously.

I now reveal to you..........(drum roll please)...........




Go ahead and check out my new website and facebook page! This is really a dream come true. Even so, I know it will take a while to get rolling, so there are more job opportunities that I'm praying about. Still, who knows where this could go? To be honest, I have a lot of fear and feelings of inadequacy. (I mean, there are a TON of great photographers out there for goodness sake!) Still, I know this is the direction I am supposed to go. I know this is going to be tool to bring glory to Christ. I pray He uses it for His Name or takes it away. How will photography accomplish that? Well I'm not sure, but I know this is what He called me to and that He can do anything. He doesn't call the equipped, He equips the called. So here I am on the brink of a new journey. I'm excited to see where it will lead. I'm learning to trust His voice and depend on Him for each day's purpose. I'm so grateful that He has put a new tool in my hand to use for Him! I really pray that it NEVER becomes about me and what I can do, but about Him and about what He can do through a nobody who is willing to be used.


Can you tell how much I love this little guy? :) I feel like a kid on Christmas morning these days!

Well, if any of you guys live in the south-eastern states and need a photog...you know where to find one!

Wow! She's a beaut! Really great that you have the tools of the trade and can learn more and more. So exciting! We've had a blast with our camera...and it's such a part of our life that we really couldn't go without an SLR!

I thought you were gonna announce a baby! ;)
BUT that Canon baby's pretty cool too!
Loved your thoughts on 'calling!'

LOVED that last picture of you and your new baby :) I think you're a very talented photographer and best of luck (and prayers!) with your new venture.

Alexis Kaye said...

So exciting! I can't wait to see what fun things you come up with! And as a side note, I completely believe in using our talents for God's purpose. An LDS guy in my area, Mark Mabry, Is super famous and he made a big art exhibit [which also had been turned into a book] that were photographs reinacting parts of Christs life. With real people! It's incredible! They even shot him walking on water! You have to google it. It's call Reflections of Christ. I think there's a youtube slide show of it. By mark Mabry! It's amazing! brought tears to my eyes!

Rachel said...

CONGRATS!!!So exciting!!! One of my dreams as well!From the looks of it you're a great photographer,I wish you the best! :)

LOVED this quote "He doesn't call the equipped, He equips the called."...I needed to hear that! I do some photography in my little town and it's so hard (or maybe it's just me) to not get insecure and self critical, so maybe watching you so strong in your journey will help me out!

The Soul Anchor said...

Wow! Congrats on this new venture! It's really ironic that you're posting this because this past week, I had yet another person offer to pay me to do their senior pictures. I've never taken a class, never advertised myself as a pro, and all I have is a decent point and shoot... I posted on my facebook that I wonder if I should pay attention to this (people asking for my photos) and now you're venturing out to see where this could go! Hmmm...

Well I hope it's fun and a great learning experience for you!
