Change

I am currently sitting in Triangle Park, waiting to meet a model to help build my portfolio for my portrait business. The roar of the water is calming. I’ve always liked this fountain. It’s a cloudy day, and the wind is blowing and the trees are swaying.

I remember when this park was being renovated. My sister called me and said, “They took away my trees!” Ashley tends to get attached to the parks around Lex. Looking around now, you probably wouldn’t be able to tell it was renovated only a few years ago. You may think “This is a pretty park,” while relaxing under one of the shade of a tree.

Change. It’s inevitable. Something is going to change eventually. Sometimes it will happen slowly. Such as becoming an adult. The change we notice most, however, happens quickly.

In the Bible, God shows Jeremiah a potter and the clay. When a potter is working with the clay he may find rocks or sticks that must be removed. It leaves holes or dents in the clay. Then the potter will fix and mold his creation.

Sometimes change can hurt and we don’t understand that hurt. Later down the road, however, people will look at you and say, “What a beautiful person.” Maybe even, “What a wise person.” If only they knew the change that came about a few years prior that molded you.

Maura & Matthew- Wedding Photography in Taylorsville, KY

I have known Maura since college. She is for real the kindest person I know. She asked about wedding photography about a year ago and I was so excited when she hired me. When I photographed their engagement session, I could tell they were going to be very happy in their marriage.

Maura and Matthew were married in their church surrounded by family and friends. Let me tell you, I laughed the entire day. This is such a fun family!

Whitney & Joshua- Wedding Photography in Eastern Kentucky

Set in Pine Mountain, Whitney and Joshua’s wedding was a dream. The chapel was built in the 1800’s, giving this whole day a classic + rustic vibe. Her dress was stunning, and her ribbon and floral hair accessory is a fave of mine now. Joshua was joyful the whole day. The proof of his love is definitely in his smile when he is with Whitney…
