My Pursuit

I'm very much the type of person to be thankful for each and every day. Life isn't easy and because I really never know what to expect each morning when I wake up, when there are good days, to me they're more like incredible days. I think that's God's way of showing me that I need to be grateful for the simplest things and that I have to stay humble. 

The winter was slow for my business, as it is for many photographers but I think it was harder for me because I dropped everything to pursue photography and it didn't seem like much was happening. I prayed and stayed patient and trusted in God with my whole heart, knowing whatever his plan was, it was a good one. Since spring has come around, I see an exciting journey ahead of me! I don't really know fully what it is but I am so blessed to be doing something I love and hanging out with wonderful photographers all the time. I'm constantly learning and when it comes to photography, I actually want to learn, which is a new concept for me. Hahaha! Photography is something I get excited about each morning!! What more could I ask for?! 

A lot of my friends are in college and some of them know what they want to pursue and some don't. I know how frustrating and scary that is because I was there. Before I got my very first DSLR, I literally had NO idea what I would end up doing and not having a plan was my worst nightmare. Although I think I know what I'm pursuing and I want to think it's photography, I really don't know where I'll end up in five years and that's the amazing part about trusting in the Lord. Each day I wake up, I know there will be trials but I know that they won't last forever. God has my best interest in mind and that's the most freeing thing in the entire world.

  1. These shots are gorgeous. And I know what you mean. I want to do something along the lines of photography or graphic/web design, but I know there aren't a lot of jobs/opportunities for those... So I'm so confused as to what I'm going to do (and supposed to do).

  2. Amen girlfriend! It is scary relinquishing control to God for sure, but that's the beauty in it as well! You don't know what you'll do or who you will be, and it's fun! He DOES have your best interests in mind, you are right! xo
