    Amy, what a story you have to tell.  Most of us have a story to tell and most of us face many disappointments in this life …but we survive because God is there for us, always!ReplyCancel

    Amy – Thank you for writing this & hitting “publish.” People need to hear this. Yes, I have been down a road that felt like all yeses & now feels like one gigantic heartbreaking “no” with no idea how or when or if it will change.

Recently, I received an email from a photography client who loved the photos I took of her family, but…ummm…herself? Not so much. She went on to describe WHY she didn’t like herself in the photos and what specific action she needed to take to remediate that problem next time they take family photos. The funny thing is, I…

He called me first. I was on the phone with my husband, so I wasn’t able to answer. Then I received a text. Having received a phone call and text within seconds of each other, I knew the message was urgent and required a prompt and personal response on my part. My husband suggested I hang…
