Photo Shoots

Have you ever asked God to show you who you are...and He does? Lately I've been struggling with "my purpose." I'm 32, a graphic artist & I feel I'm not doing what He MADE me to do. So I asked... Then the email started coming in, "Would you be free to take some pictures for me?" "Hey, can I get you to do our family photos again this year?" "Hi...I would love for you to take my bridal portraits...pleeeease..."

Now this made me a little nervous, because I put my camera down a couple of months ago when I was getting ready for the Big Move. In a moment of despair, I cried out to My Father "I'm sorry for shoving your gift to the side. SHOW ME, because I might be blind & deaf, what you want me to do with it!" So my phone rang. My good friend Mel was calling to say, "Okay, I have a precious newborn & we want you to take the pictures." So I did.... with a little fear in my heart...but total faith my Papa God would show me the way. And here are a few of the results.

I've been having an issue with my stuff not "looking like" the Ulmers' or Lyndsay Hyatt-Almeida's (Pink Coffee) photoart. I would love my photos to appear soft & commercial. So what am I missing??? (I ask myself) As you can tell, it's very heavy on my heart....then a friend hit me with a dose of reality. "Kate, maybe your stuff isn't supposed to look like someone else's. You have a style all your own....so accept it, use it & soar above your own expectations." (Letty you're so wise...)


So.....I'm going to give that a shot! Imagine....my own style....
I don't know that I've ever accepted it before!

So, I'm going to use Thanksgiving to try it out! I'm going to take my camera along as a friend, again, to see what we discover together. Perhaps it'll show me what I've been missing all along.

I AM THANKFUL FOR FAMILY, FRIENDS & FAITHFULNESS!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING, O TRIBE OF LOVE & GOODNESS
