While in Florida this weekend, I found a REALLY old external hard drive filled with pictures from the very early days of my “photography”. I put photography in quotation marks because I had no intention of ever becoming a photographer. It just kind of happened after taking pictures of my friends (for free) for a year or so. I remember the first time a couple asked me how much I would charge for a session, and I was TERRIFIED to ask for $30 to cover the two hour session and disc of all the meticulously PHOTOSHOPPED images. Yeah… I basically had no idea what I was doing. :) It’s crazy to see how God has grown my business and given me such a passion for what I do, and I couldn’t be more thankful. I thought I’d share some of my favorite shots from back in the day, which should give you quite the laugh. :)

I really loved those crooked shots…

Don’t you love that hot pink “Kt”? Oh, geeze.

I hope those brought a little smile to your Tuesday!

    kayla - Don’t hate too hard, you posted two of my favorite pics! Love you and your work!ReplyCancel

It’s definitely one of them. I’m exhausted, I can’t seem to stay on top of my to-do list, and I’m getting ready to go out of town again on Thursday. All of that has left me feeling like a hott mess recently. More emphasis on the mess than the hott. It’s weeks like this that have me repeating Lamentations 3:22-24…

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is Your faithfulness.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for Him.”

I’m thankful for a God that looks upon me with love when I’m failing to get my act together. He is forever faithful to this hott mess, and I lean daily on His compassions.

It’s been a while, and Pinterest has been a gold mine recently… Here are some of my new favorites!

Who doesn’t love a little Harry Potter humor to start their weekend?

I just LOVE string art but have yet to attempt it myself because it looks so time consuming! I think this simple cross design would be the perfect beginner’s project and a great addition to our new place when we move in the fall! :)

Speaking of moving, one of the things I’m most excited about is (hopefully) having some space for an entry table! I love how this one is styled, even though I’m not super crazy about the quote on the chalkboard.

Okay, okay. I KNOW I shouldn’t be posting anything baby-related, or people will start to wonder. And our mothers will start freaking out. However, I couldn’t resist this adorable baby-boy onesie. SO CUTE!!!!

It seems like big, chunky necklaces are already on their way out (can’t say I’m sad), and dainty jewelry is taking over! I love this rose gold initial necklace. :)

I know I’m a little late for 4th of July decor, but I’m just planning for next year! :)

Recently, I have just been in LOVE with hand-lettering, but sadly, I don’t have any skills myself. My favorite illustrator/hand letterer is Lindsay Sherbondy. Her work is TO DIE FOR.

Happy Weekend! :)
