I didn’t get around to writing a Thanksgiving post. I have so much to be thankful for and I didn’t write anything, these thoughts echoed in my head Thanksgiving morning. After I realized it is fine, I can do it next week, my blog, my rules, here I am… although I hope I have readers, this blog has become more to me over the last two years than I think I can I express. I don’t care if it is one person or 30, I am happy to share something with the world one way or another. If one person can relate, I am happy 😉
What I am thankful for is endless. Really. I don’t have a perfect life, but it is my life and GOD has been good to me. My Family is everything. I could not be more thankful for what I have been given in the people who I call family and close friends. From my family to Ivan’s, each brings such a different significant to my life and teach me something everyday. I am blessed and truly grateful to GOD.
I have said this before I am sure but I am so thankful for my passion for photography. For a long time (a year to be exact) I hid the fact that I wanted to learn this, I hid the fact that I wanted something else to add to my busy life. I remember one day coming home for work, having a GREAT work day, the kind that includes adrenalin live TV rushes (not sure if many can relate unless you work in television) and free food. Anything with free food makes me happy. Anyway, I got home that night and cried, because I felt guilty. I felt like I had it all and here I was wanting something else. BUT I thank God for answered prayers, because he gave me exactly what I wanted. I asked him to guide me in the direction that was best even if I didn’t think I could do it. I am a photographer now! It has taken me a long time to say that out loud. I have a second job and that is photography! I am so thankful for this opportunity, it has given me exactly what I wanted… a connection with people through love, through their love for others. A way to give back to people, to serve. I can call myself a photographer thanks to all the awesome people who trust me with their special moments. The people who let me come into their lives for a moment and see the love. I am lucky to call this a job.
I’ve been busy with sessions! I have quite a few to blog, which are all coming soon! In the mean time here are some sessions I have done in the last couple of weeks… love, love and more family love.
