What do you get when you try to start a blog at one of the busiest times of the year for you? a blog that waits for a year between posts. sorry about that, y'all. But the plus side to that is.... I have a lot to fill you in on :)
One thing you should know by now - I like to do a little bit of everything. seriously. David tried to limit me to just 3 hobbies and I just couldn't choose, so I decided to do the only rational thing when you already have too many hobbies, I added another hobby to my list. This time it was photography!
I have always wanted to be good a photography or get in to it, but never really spent time studying it or learning about it, let alone really trying it. I wasn't really trying to get in to it this time... it kind of just fell into my lap. you see... my friend Lauren was getting married within a month and they weren't going to get engagement pictures taken. Of course, I wasn't going to let that happen [everyone deserves to have pictures of them with their other half and have a chance to share their love story]. David and I received a nice camera for our college graduation present from his parents and I volunteered our time to go and take some pictures of this beautiful couple. I spent some time studying about my camera, the lighting, and found a great place for the couple that seemed to be perfect for them. We did our first engagement photo shoot for about an hour and had a blast.
Lauren and Alassane are seriously the two most genuine people that I know and they make the most beautiful couple. Their love was evident in just the little time we interacted with the two of them and I am so excited to see how God uses them in their marriage to one another. Here are a few photos from the engagement shoot.
add photography to the list -- or maybe it should be called 'story telling.'
