Happy Thursday! I think today’s inspirational message is one of my favorites I have done! I was on a photography workshop about a year an half ago when we were up on Foothills Parkways doing a sunrise shoot over the Smoky Mountains. Sunrise in the Smokies is so refreshing and magical! As the sun was coming up, I walked across the street to photograph another shot I saw because the sunrise was on the left side of us, when I looked back and saw my fellow photographers exactly like this, I photographed this moment.
I love capturing silhouettes with a sunrise or sunset. But when I saw this moment, I realized how blessed I felt that God gave me the gift of photography and the ability to photograph His beauty. In that moment, I prayed and thanked God for having photography be apart of my life. Photography has given me more then what I have given it. I have met so many people I am thankful for, been on endless journeys, made millions of memories, and already achieved so much, but most of all it revealed my true self.
