A Bit About Me

As most of my clients know, I am NOT a business person.  I'm a photographer, an artist, a lover of life, a mom, a Christian, a vegan...but not a business person.  So part of my business goals for the year is to figure out this whole business thing.  Part of that is figuring out the blog thing, so I'm kind of hitting refresh on the blog and getting a little personal.  

 

When people ask me what I do, my first response is almost always, "I'm a mom."  I guess I'll start there. I am a mom.  I have two amazingly adorable kiddos who have stolen my heart.  My oldest is 9 1/2 (almost 10) and my baby turned 5 in January.  These two keep me on my toes.  I homeschool the older one (who is in 4th grade) and will start officially homeschooling my youngest in the fall.  I love the freedom it gives us and the time I get to spend with them as we learn and grow together. For the record I realize how cheesy that sounds, but it's the truth, so I'll deal with the cheesiness. :)

 

I am a Christian.  I love Jesus.  I love what he did for me and I'm not ashamed to share that.  With that said, I love people as well.  I don't judge or condemn people (friends, clients, strangers, or anyone for that matter).  I know I am broken and never pretend not to be.  I also know my place isn't to judge people, but to love them, so I do that to the best of my ability.

 

I am a vegan.  Vegans get vegans, but the rest of the world thinks we're a bit strange (and that's totally okay with me...I embrace my strangeness).  I won't preach to you about animal rights, nor will I condemn your food choices at your wedding or any other time!  It's just part of who I am and I like that part of me. 

 

I am a wife.  I am married to an amazing man.  He is my rock, my soulmate and my best friend.  We have fought some tough battles together and have endured them all...together.  I understand love in large part because of him.  My parents love me fiercely, but they're supposed to.  My Mike CHOSE me.  He CHOOSES me daily.  We choose each other daily.  We choose to love and honor each other every day.  We laugh together, cry together and sometimes we go crazy together, but we always choose to love each other!

 

I am a photographer.  I love capturing emotions.  I love freezing time so people can look back and remember.  Weddings and engagement sessions are my favorite things to photograph.  There's something about a love story that gets me every time.  I am reminded every time I photograph a wedding what it means to love.  I am reminded to hold my man close and cherish him always.  And I pray that the photos I take of such memorable moments will always remind my clients to love each other and cherish each other always.

 

I live a wonderfully blessed life.  I love my family, my God, and my job.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. An excellent read. I'll definitely be back.
