Well, another year has come and gone and it’s time to review the year. Each one seems to fly by faster and faster, doesn’t it? I love that I have all of the pictures from all of my sessions to remember the year and relationships by. I am beyond thankful for every face you see below. Each of you has made my life brighter and more enjoyable. You have allowed me to live my dream of telling people’s stories, working from home, and creating art. Thank you for welcoming me into your lives and allowing me the honor of capturing your story. I truly hope to do this for many years to come.
I was trying to think about what 2018 taught me and I think it is summed up in one phrase I heard near the end of the year. “Stop trying to do something that only God can do.” Bam! That word “trying” hit me hard. I try to do a lot on my own. I want to figure it all out. It’s my desire to be everything for everyone but I’ve learned that that is not what I was created for. I was created to lean into His will, let Him be God, and use me in the process.
So, as 2018 comes to a close and I begin to think about what 2019 will hold for me I’m a little confused and wondering where to go from here. One think I know is that I want to hear His direction and do what He wants me to do. There are some fun adventures ahead for the new year and I can’t wait to begin to share them more and more but they need to take a bit more shape first. I know there will be some stretching in 2019 and change but in order to become better and grow we have to do some changing, right? I so appreciate you all, your prayers, words of encouragement, and love! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything!
Now on to the year in review in photos. We’ll kick things off with my sweet families. I love family sessions so much! The bond between family is so different to each and so beautiful! Thank you all for sharing your life with me!
Spring was such a fun time for minis in Jacksonville and Peachtree City.
I got to photograph some really awesome seniors this year too!
Be sure to check back for a few more blogs to wrap up the year of shoots and probably one more thoughtful post about the new year.
