I have some news to share! Over the years, if you manage to follow my blog when I got a chance to write, you could see where it all started! Cake decorating, party decor, invitation design, and so much more. While I still love all that stuff, things changed after taking a photography class.
I have always loved photos and have a sense to look deeper into photos, like they take me back in time. I like to dissect the images to try to reveal the story behind them. I get lost in images and stare at them for a while, just reading its story.
After some thought and prayer, I have decided to pursue photography. There was a time just recently that I couldn’t see it being more and I couldn’t let go of design. I thought that holding onto it for some reason would be good. Like seriously, I could not let it go, but after praying about it, asking God, if that’s what he wants me to do, make it easy for me to let it go and pursue what he has for me. I have always had a love for photography, but didn’t take it any further than just the occasional family and fun images……And then there a photography class that I HAD to take for graphic design. Makes sense right? NOT, but that is when things started to unfold.
Some photos will be fun shots of whatever, some will be from photo shoots, but I want each photograph to tell a story about each moment that will bring joy for years to come. Sometimes in the end, all we have to hold on to is a photograph. I know that for a fact that after my mom passed away, all I have to hold on to are photographs. As I had gotten older, we didn’t take many pictures together, but the few we do have I cherish forever.
So with that being said, I will be offering photography services for you, your children and your family. If you are local to the Charleston area, I am building my portfolio and would love to photograph you! Check out the Session tab at the top of the page.
Don’t worry, I will still do design stuff from time to time, and I am sure, there is more evolving to do as the years go on as God continues to work on me and show me the way. I still have a lot to learn, but I am stepping out and taking a leap of faith!
Here are a few photos from one of my favorite places, Middleton Place Plantation, in sepia. I just love the history and how far it goes back. I also love the immaculate landscaped grounds and I can’t forget about the sweet animals!
