But I never set out to be a photographer. I was (and still am!) going to be a writer. And then as I worked toward that writing goal, someone put a camera in my hand and asked me to try telling stories with something besides words. So with an English nerd's love for character and tone, a romantic's love for poignant beauty, and a realist's love for imperfection, I dove in.

That was back in 2010.

Since that time, photography has changed much of my life. It's brought me some of my dearest friends. It's reshaped the way my husband Danny and I view serving others. It has even literally taken me around the world. One thing that hasn't changed: my soul-stirring desire to tell stories that feel so real you're sure you knew them before you heard them. Or saw them. It's my privilege to tell those stories for my clients, and for the generations of their families still to come.

All You Who Are Weary

Friday, October 5th, 2012

We came by plane, by train, by car. We came from far-flung corners of the country — from Connecticut and Maine, from Minnesota and Illinois, from California and Arizona, from Florida and Kentucky, from Virginia and New Jersey. Even from Canada. We came wearied from our travels — from unnervingly bumpy flights, from too many hours waiting in airports or tracking down lost luggage. We came wearied from our everyday lives — from overwhelmingly busy or floundering photography businesses, from broken homes and bruised marriages, from physical struggles and emotional anguish.

And then something happened.

We found rest. The exact rest each one of us needed.

For some, that rest was literal, simply stepping away from business and the internet and phone calls, and sleeping through the morning sessions. For others, that rest meant talking  through the night, going a full 48 hours without sleep because the adrenaline and excitement and release of having new friends to savor was a kind of rest in itself. For some, that rest was in our worship services, pouring hearts and tears out as we sang. For others, it was simply soaking in the beauty of God’s majestic mountains.

But whatever rest we needed, we each found it. We found our rest is in Jesus.To read more about the incredible Pursuit 31 conference at the WinShape Retreat this past week, check back on Monday.
