You know I’ve been in love for about 12 plus years…maybe more. In a passionate heart skipping, always excited and ready to learn love. A love that fills my soul and constantly challenges me. A love that I have been working at since I was a freshman in high school.
I am in love with photography.
I sometimes get asked, why photography? What brought you to photography? What made you pick it? And I’ve spent the past 12 years trying to figure that out. I don’t have one memory of me picking up a camera for the first time and falling in love. I didn’t have a family member who introduced me to it or built the love in me for it. It was just there. It’s always just been there.
So why photography? Why in the world out of all the options and hobbies out there, why did I pick photography?
Honestly, after much thought and questioning it finally dawned on me…I didn’t pick photography. Photography was picked for me! It was a gift that was given to me for a purpose. I was blessed with the skills, I was given the opportunity to foster it through years of education, I was given parents and family who supported it from day one, I was blessed with the heart and passion for it and the realization that when you have a passion for something you go after it.
GOD choose photography for me! He made the decision that photography would be my skill. My passion. My love.
Why did he give me photography? Honestly, I’m still trying to figure that piece out. I know He has a plan for me. A plan to use this skill to His glory. I’m just still on the journey to discover what that purpose is…but in the meantime I will follow my heart and instincts. I will pray about my talents, my business and where He wants it to go. And I will do everything in my power to be the best I can be! I will keep learning and growing and use this skill to capture the lives of my beautiful clients that He blesses me with!
So why photography?!
I guess we’ll find out as we go along.
Thanks for joining me on this journey 🙂
