As I look back to how we got started, it's amazing that we have come this far. When I was little, I always wanted to be a photographer. I loved cameras and hearing the sound of the shutter. During the tough periods of life, I would go out and take pictures. It was calming to my soul. As I was growing up, I pushed the dream aside until I had my first real job. It was alright but I didn't love it. That's when I would really dream of being a photographer. I didn't know the possibilities though. It wasn't until I was pregnant with our son that I realized I hadn't become a photographer yet. I had health issues when I was pregnant with him (and afterwards for years) and had a scare in the hospital. I didn't think I was going to make it. I knew the baby would be alright because I was 36 weeks but I didn't think I was going to be alright. In that moment, my first thought is I didn't become a photographer. Little did I know that God had a plan for me. I ended up becoming 'good' as a photographer shortly after that. The right person saw my pictures and invited me to be in my first art show. I loved it! I then started to put bible verses on my pictures. I knew instantly that this was a good thing. I can't explain it but could feel the excitement of what I was doing. Now looking back, I didn't think. I just did. The Holy Spirit was guiding me the whole way. I always had a feeling in the back of my mind that I needed to go through what I was going through. It wasn't until after a few years of doing shows that I realized what a great plan God had for my husband and me. We've worked harder than either of us could ever imagine but we know it has been very rewarding in the fact that we have met so many great people. We always say we have the best customers! Our thoughts are when we are doing a show is that we are going to get to visit with a lot of friends. On the other hand, our kids have watched us fail and seen us pick up ourselves up and keep going. I can't even count how many times we have failed but God made sure we would have everything we would need to keep going. It's been quite a journey and I would go through every single thing all over again. God uses the worse thing in our lives and has a way of making it good.
We are looking forward to seeing you this year! Hope each and every one of you has a blessed year!
