Little would Melanie know that our session this day sparked something in me. If you’ve been in a profession for any length of time you may know that you sometimes begin to wonder if you’re doing what you were meant to do. That’s where I was at the time of this session. It wasn’t anything photography related or anything specific that she said that reminded me that I’m doing what I was created to do. You see, I love photography but also love relationship & it was the friendship that Melanie & I have created that stuck out to me. We talked & walked & took some really fun pictures of her and her little Valentine (Happy Valentine’s Day!). We shared dreams, desires for the moment, needs, God, & hung out longer than or time allotment for a mini session but that was okay because. . .relationship! So, you see, this thing I do is more than pretty pictures, technique, & the right light. It’s about investing in the lives of the people around me if simply by just listening.
Besides getting some time to catch up with Melanie it’s always fun to watch her’s & Lain’s relationship & learn what he’s into these days. This fall it was all about football season & going to football games. He’s got a pretty good throw so be on the lookout Auburn Tigers (go Bama!). Love you guys!
