I still can't believe I'm a professional photographer!
I'm living out my dream, but the ironic thing is, I never knew it was a dream of mine until it became a reality!
I never set out to become a professional photographer.
In the beginning, I just wanted to capture photos of Maddie.
My first photo shoot was May 14 last year.
I had taken some classes and a friend of mine really wanted pictures of her little one who had already turned one.
I suggested we meet at the park and I could take some pictures and just see if they turned out. The only thing we had to lose was maybe wasted time.
The pictures turned out amazing!!
That's when I began to suspect this thing I had was bigger than just me.
It was my God-given talent and those pictures were a result of God working through me.
Since then I have shot 34 other photo shoots. I have 5 scheduled this week and a calendar that's filling up!
As I was driving to my photo shoot last night, I was overcome with gratitude.
I've been trying to put into words what I've been experiencing over the past year.
The best I can do is to say is I'm in God's pocket.
"Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you." Psalm 37:5
I like His pocket. It's nice and warm and I hope I get to stay a while!
