The 411

I sat here imagining what it is that I wanted to portray to those of you who happen to stop by and ponder who I am.

I sat for a pretty long time.

I considered, maybe, that I should start with a cliche quote, such as 'pictures are worth a thousand words'. But I didn't want to sell out on a simple quote like that.

So I sat and pondered some more.

And really, the one thing that I can say about who I am is a photographer, is this:

"Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name goes all the glory for your unfailing love and faithfulness" Psalm 115:1

I have been blessed with a passion and a gift, and I seek it out everyday for a purpose greater than my own. I find joy in capturing the true personalities of my clients, because I desire to pursue my passion with integrity.

So, I could sit here and tell you a story about pictures being worth a thousand words, a million words, maybe even an infinite amount of words. But not one of those words would speak truth to who I am or what I do.

So, instead, I give you me. What I do and why I do it; to the core. 

Honesty is the best policy, right? (Ok, one cheesy quote is acceptable).

ShareIt isn’t that uncommon to hear someone talk about how they need ‘me’ time, ‘alone’ time, or a quick breather.
