In the beginning, when I first picked up my camera and before “industry professionals” decided what I was worth, or how I should run a business, I just wanted to help others, to tell their stories, and to give them beautiful photos of the ones they most treasure in life.
I’m going back to my roots.
I’d spent the better part of the previous 4 years exhaustingly building my new photography business. Suddenly, all that came to a halt to take care of my amazing mother, (goodness how I miss her– more every day), and I resigned from professionally shooting weddings and everything else. That was an easy decision and one I’d do again and again, because you see, my mom was a big piece the deepest parts of my roots. She still is and I thank the Lord for that!
Yet I dearly miss the times where I stayed true to my heart’s passions when it came to business. There I met incredibly beautiful people who allowed me to share their lives just as beautifully. Those photographs make my heart swell every time I see them again, and each experience renews sweet memories and a fresh smile on my face. The best thing I’ve discovered in my retrospectives? Each of those sweet people have solid roots, too.
It’s no secret that one of the most massive and strongest hurricanes to hit our country ever happened just 2 days ago making landfall in Naples, FL.What you may not know is that two of my brothers live and were taking shelter right in IRMA’s path as if they were holding targets for the eye of the storm, targets well hit. Again, my heart’s passions burst from my own body and there’s no holding it back. I can’t wait to see them again! They have a lot of re-doing all things to take care of, but they’re alive, praise God, and they have a pillow to place their heads tonight albeit still without power, water, food and all the comforts I am-as probably you are too-enjoying this moment.
Family: That’s where you find my roots, and that’s where I’ll meet you soon.
If you, like me, wish you could help, I have a plan that will make us all winners.
