Luke & Melissa | Wedding


This post is one of a young bride, the vow she wrote and the people that were there to hear it - a post that should have been posted a long, long ways back closer to the time it actually happened. ;-)  Once again, I ...

K Family | Portraits



I'm sure a lot of you photographers will probably relate to this, but I love shooting right before sunset... especially when all the Fall colors are at their best!  That said, I couldn't be happier when the mom of this family told me (in her very first...

C Family | Portraits


It was a cold, windy, no sun kind of day... but these sweet girls didn't let that keep them from having fun and smiling beautifully!  There was an abundance of nose kisses, bear hugs, coat-swapping... and a little bit of licorice baby-coaxing. ;-)  Having so many sisters myself...

Reflections on Business, Worship, and How They Fit Together | Personal


I'm coming back to the heart of worship
And it's all about You,
It's all about You, Jesus
I'm sorry, Lord, for the thing I've made it
When it's all about You,
It's all about You, Jesus
(The Heart of Worship)

You know those songs that you heard so many times growing up  (Hillsong's Songs 4 Worship CD's, anyone?), and how there's just no way that they can't be forever ingrained into your childhood memory?  This song is one of them, and this morning I again found myself humming out the chorus as I was getting around for the day.  When I actually got to thinking about the simple, well-known words I had going through my head, I was reminded of why I'm here. WHO I'm living for.  

It's all about you, Jesus.

Why is it that losing sight of that is so easy??

I want my personal life and the interactions I have with others to reflect Someone who's worth reflecting.  But I want my business to do the same... even though self-promotion is often important for a business' marketing, more than anything I want my business and everything that it entails to shout Jesus' name.  I want my life as a whole to sing a song of worship to the Lord, whether I'm at the grocery store, doing my studies at home, picking up my camera, or writing an email.  I want my life and my business to declare God and His glory because "every little thing I do" flows from a heart that can't help but worship Him.

Photography isn't something I just "do".  It's my way of enjoying and worshiping the Creator of beauty, art, creativity, and my very soul.  Its my way of expressing my adoration for Him.  So even if you're just washing the dishes or running an errand - turn it into an act of worship.  Put your heart into it, and remember who you're really doing it for!

Well, that's the end of my rant tonight.  Kudos to those of you who read all the way through!!  Try taking a break from the computer and go pull out one of those inspirational "kiddie" songs or stories you used to enjoy... just maybe, you'll find a small gem that will bring you a renewed, more child-like perspective!

M Family | Portraits



If you're one of those "long time readers" of this blog, you might recall seeing pictures of this adorable family that I posted back in 2012.  I think this summer marked the 4th time I've photographed the M family, and it's been so much fun to be the one capturing their...

Weddings are wonderful... it's a beautiful thing to be able to witness two people coming together and starting something new.  But something I can't help but love more than any wedding is married...
