{before she goes to assist on her first destination wedding}


March 25, 2011


Beautiful-girl...

I am so proud of you!! In the last year you have magically (or with the help of Jesus...) grown so much from a timid little girl, to a brave, confident soon-to-be-young-lady, who can conquer nerves and dive into the unknown to do things most little girls wouldn't even dream of!

I can't believe you're going off to the other coast of Florida to shoot a wedding, and that another photographer requested your services! You'll be such an example of what it looks like to be a smart, funny, creative, talented, and courageous daughter of the King of Kings. You make us proud to be your mommy and daddy.

Remember to pray and ask Jesus for confidence and wisdom, and don't hesitate to ask the grownups for anything you need, or for advice if you need it. Be sure to wear sunscreen and rest when you can. Watch your camera settings (raise your ISO if you need to, choose auto white balance if you have a hard time, and remember to watch your shutter speed!) and most importantly, study the life around you. Your eye is important, and your vision is unique from anyone else's... there's a reason YOU have been chosen for this!! You'll see things differently than anyone else can, and you'll give the gift of your perspective through the lens!!!

So proud of you, angel-girl, and so excited to watch you growing in all you can be in your Papa-God. Love you MORE!!!

Mama
