“To the mountains and beyond, wherever the wind may take us
Darling, I will always be by your side.”
The thing that I’ve learned about being an entrepreneur/photographer, a wife, a mom is that you have to choose to operate and be in those roles as God has called you to, not from a place of comparison. Take for example, the creative side of me. The side that loves capturing images and investing into people’s value and worth. It’s so easy to look at what other photographers are doing and believe you’re not good enough or that you should shoot more like them. But God. God created me. When he did, he planted a creative seed in me that can bear fruit that is specific to his calling on my life. While all us photographers may have creative seeds, each one of ours produces it’s own fruit. I pray that I can look not to what others are producing, but to what the Lord has created me to produce. The same can be said for my other roles. It’s amazing and freeing to work from this place. I don’t do it perfectly, but I practice it. And as a result I’m on a beautiful journey with my business and my family. We are starting a non-profit that will serve displaced and homeless youth by providing mobile photo shoot experiences (getting them their senior photos for free while investing into resorting their value and wroth). Had I operated just as a creative instead of focusing on the fruit the Lord made me a creative to produce, I would have missed this calling. And it’s a glorious one. He is so good, and so faithful.

Their love stories inspire me. Their joy motivates me. I truly love what I do.
I’ve met so many wonderful souls through this journey and it’s amazing that each of them hold one unique story.
Tiffany, this beautiful mom,wife and entrepreneur is not the exception. She is quite talented and the journey that the Lord has given her is incredibly beautiful.
As I photographed them I couldn’t help to notice the overwhelming love this family has for one another. This reminds me, I am not here to photograph perfection, I am here to embrace the raw beauty that is known to many as “flaws”. To me it’s simply beauty.
We started this session in a local park in Richland, Washington. Until the sunset arrived, we embraced the golden beauty of God’s creation. With a view to the mountains surrounding the Tri-Cities. I was just overwhelmed by it all.
God is good!
