This year I was SO hard on myself. Pushing, striving, agonizing, and stressing and albeit growing – growing a lot but doing it in a way that wasn’t necessarily fair to myself. I was weak. You aren’t gonna see that said much. But I was. Still am in a lot of ways.
I worry. A LOT. I worry what others think of me. I worry I will leave this earth without making a difference for the Lord and those I touch. I worry about providing for my family while still being the wife & mama my family needs. I worry about not going above and beyond to serve. I tried to be everything to everyone. So in 2018 my goal is to be present. To be ME. To do what I so want & preach for everyone that I photograph. I say this a lot. And for that brief few hours at @thestudioatchelseacommons it’s real. Women surrender. They let go. They stop worrying and stressing and agonizing. To deeply root myself in the love and confidence of Jesus so that I can STOP looking to the left and to the right and comparing myself to other’s journeys and downgrading my own.
2018 New Year Resolutions
I am gonna be vulnerable. Put it out there. And know that it’s honest. And if you don’t like it…tough cookies. Cause that’s me. The fuzzy boot flouncing, neutral loving, no makeup wearing, cozy nautral seeking, head over heels still in lust (yes I said that) high school sweetheart & mama of two, crossfitting Christ follower. If anything I want Yours Truly Portraiture – To TRULY be. Yours, truly.
