I never considered myself to be the ‘artsy’ girl. I was the girl who was going to graduate from high school and go on to college to become a teacher. And I was fine with that.
Then it happened. A friend of mine asked me to take her picture with her DSLR camera. And in that moment everything changed.
I began to notice life in pictures. And then when I purchased my first DSLR, a Canon Rebel XS…a love was born. A love and passion that burned deeper than anything I’d ever experienced before in my life.
And here I am, the girl of contradictions.
I’m the southern girl who drinks unsweet tea. I adore all things vintage, but love and admire modern art. I listen to John Mayer with the windows down on perfectly sunny days, when we all know John Mayer was intended for cozy, rainy nights. And I’m a hopeless romantic, yet I watch a little too much of The Bachelor. The area of my life, however, that has always been rock solid is my relationship with the Lord. I give God the glory for everything in my life. From the godly parents that raised me to love Him all the way down to my little Honda Element that gets me to and fro. While I absolutely love photography and my business, I will always love Him more. God’s grace and mercy sustain me daily and I am ever thankful for my personal relationship with Him.
So now I’m the artsy girl. The girl couldn’t imagine herself as anything other than a photographer. The girl who still might be a bag full of contradictions, but knows without a doubt that she loves what she does.
