this would be a nice way to print out and use with the Journal. Print out enough for each scripture, make a binder, or add to a folder to help you continue to grow in the WORD OF GOD~

Loving Jesus ~ showing it through photographs

I have worked in many venues with photography, weddings, pets, portraits, and some video work, but I was tired and bored of the same old wedding and portrait scenes. I just didn't have that flare or desire to do that type of photography any longer; I seriously pondered putting my camera on retirement mode;

I had a job a few years back, the manager was interested in photography, so we talked shop often; I decided to bring in my portfolio one day, and as she got finished viewing it (singing many accolades to my work), she closed the folder up and said "So, what are you gonna do with this?".
She might as well punched me in the gut! It seriously took my breath away. It woke me up - and for a few weeks after that, I would say a few times a day, what IS my gifting? What DO I do with this? I have zero desire to photograph people, dogs, babies kids. Been there done that. Grateful for the experience, but moving on.

I would say after the course of about 3-4 weeks, I started shedding layers. I knew I was done with what I used to do with the camera. And started reviewing what I LOVE to take photos of; which is landscapes, travel, and candid shots.

So, I continued to pursue and think of how to create a line of work, and what to do, how to go about it; I knew that I really love the whole techie world, with Photoshop and Illustrator etc etc; So, I started playing; Which led to creating.
Then I started having some God moments, with specific topics and ideas, which landed me to create the first booklet, which is "Who I am in Christ".
I started to market and show folks, and it has been successful ! That version was with pink peonies, (not so great for most manly men), so I made a barn version for the guys, and a kids version as well;

I now have a file full of ideas that I can hardly keep up with - and I am so enjoying the process of learning more as I go; Doing the research on how to market and using various outsources to help in this endeavor, that I hope will lead to a full blown business venture;

So, I encourage anyone out there, to not go along into the mold of what everyone else expects, but utilize the talents and gifts YOU have to offer; You will be successful and enjoy life to the fullest when using the gifts God gave you to give back into the world!

    Having a camera in hand to capture candid moments, beauty in each season, drawing and writing are gifts to share. I create simple stories and keep them to share with loved ones and to be reminded of special thoughts and stories.

Welcome to Photos by Design!

I hope the items created here, capture the love of photography that I have, as well as using Words that encourage and build up.

Life sometimes has its challenges, yet through the tough times, like the death of my husband, I have learned to take life one day at a time, I enjoy my wonderful family Taking time to look, and appreciate each unique personality they bring to this world. When we look up and around, the enjoyment and wonder of buds on the trees, and various colors of flowers that are growing all around as well as the glistening snow and a moonlit evening, bring comfort and tranquility to my day.

I have come to realize, and appreciate each day! My ultimate goal is a day to enjoy, learn from and value every moment!

Using each platform, by way of photographs, mixed media, greeting cards and journals along with painting, I hope you feel and experience the words and what is in each design, whether it is simple or complex, andgain the message expressed.

I have so much overflow of creativity, love and joy, not to hoard it but to put it to good use by volunteering to help women grow by encouraging them to bring up their gifts, even in the midst of struggles they might have, and sharing the Love of God, through my heart, my voice and giftings! I hope to inspire others by encouraging and lifting up the people I meet.

So as you look through my store, each design has a moment captured in a photography and various projects created to hopefully encourage your every day walk.
