Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I am a wedding and creative branding photographer based out of Pittsburgh! Here you will find just about everything you need to know about me and my most recent work! Thanks for stopping by!
HAPPY NEW YEAR, friends!!! I’m excited to share some of my goals for 2016 with you all! Aside from goals, I also wanted to come up with a word to focus on for 2016. I didn’t have a word for 2015, until October when I started studying scripture and everything I could on contentment. I felt a tug on my heart after the Pursuit Conference to really pursue what that word should look like in my life and I have really felt a difference in the way I’m making decisions and living out my life and my faith. I plan to continue to study contentment and I hope to write a whole post on that soon, but let’s get back to 2016! My word for 2016 is going to be genuine.
Genuine is defined as: truly what something is said to be; authentic.
I have a real desire to work on being more genuine in many areas of my life, to resist the pull to be someone I’m not. I want to be comfortable in my own skin, and I want to own every bit of who God made me to be – quirks and all. I want to own the scars that make up my torso, I want to own the stretch-marks, I want to own my sometimes loud/sometimes shy personality, and most of all, I want to own my faith. I want to own it all and be the person I was made to be – whether it be on Instagram, this blog or in person, I want to be more authentic. I want to stop people-pleasing because let’s be honest, that isn’t helping anyone or anything…and it’s exhausting! Also, I want to be more genuine in my relationships. I want to get to know my husband more, my daughter more and my friends more. I want to have deep, meaningful relationships. I want to be sincere and take the time to slow down more and listen to those I love. I could go on and on, but I’ve got a lot of praying and studying the Word ahead of me to get to the where I want to be.
Let’s continue and take a look at my 2016 goals…
