wanna-be.

the last few weeks, i have really been getting back into one of my favorite pass times:
photography.

here's a few of the things i've been able to do. i hope you enjoy them. because i sure enjoyed taking them. 

these first few are more from my institute project:

this first picture comes from Matthew 13:45-46
"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it"
(shout out to my homeskillet, Michael for being the merchant man.) but i'm so grateful for this scripture-- it was pointed out to me that the kingdom of heaven is the merchant man. ie. the kingdom of heaven wants ME. and YOU. and ALL OF US. we are that pearl of great price. what a blessing.

this next one comes from Moses 7:44
"but the Lord said...: Lift up your heart, and be glad; and look"

(thanks McKenna! :])


these next two come from the classic "light on a hill" scripture. ya know, Matthew 5:15-16
(shout out to my girls: Cara, Cat and Lyd.)


and then the next few pictures are from McKenna's Senior Pictures Shoots (yes, plural. i'm practicing here)


and then i was lucky enough to help out with announcing an engagement for McKenna's dad and soon-to-be step-mom. :)


i really love photography. i'm definitely not a professional. just a wanna-be who is constantly learning new things. i am so grateful for those that have helped me with my institute project and for those who have just let me take their picture so that i can continue to practice. thank you for your patience and kindness! you know who you are. 

any tips, suggestions, models, questions, comments, concerns, etc. are greatly appreciated and welcomed. talk to me. we'll set something up and have tons of fun. :)
