Why I Choose To Serve Women

Why I Choose To Serve Women

 “Not all of us can do great things.  But we can do small things with great love.”  This quote, by Mother Teresa, is one of my favorites.  All too often, I have nagging thoughts that I am only one person, and that I cannot make a difference.  Perhaps that is true, but this quote reminds me that I don’t have to do big things to make a difference.  Doing small, everyday things with great love can make a difference. That’s what I’m hoping to do with my photography.  As I mentioned in my last post, the desire to serve others is leading me to make some important changes to my business and to my work.  And as I work through these changes, and the ideas and plans that come to mind each day, one thing remains the same.  I want to serve women.   This has always been a constant for me.  While I have always been open to photographing and teaching both genders, I am consistently drawn to connecting and giving to women.  The reasons are countless, but the foundation of my new plans are based on these three points. SERVING ALL WOMENEvery woman knows that her family is the most special, that her children are the most beautiful, her sisters the most fabulous, her girlfriends the most amazing.  And I would go so far as to say that every woman should have tangible reminders of ...

Building Something I Can Believe In

Why I Choose To Serve Women

It’s been awhile since I sat down to write a blog post, and even longer since I tried to write one this meaningful.  Perhaps, like so many others, I have come to the end of one year, preparing to start the next, and have these deep moments of reflection and planning.  This year seems so similar to past ones in that sense, and yet it feels so completely unlike anything I’ve felt in past years. The last time I wrote here, I spoke of a new journey I felt led to start.  At the time, I had very little idea about that journey, only that it involved a desire to give and to serve.  That was about five months ago. A lot has happened since then, both in my business, in our home, and in our country and world.  I’m sure you could say the same.  Five months gives a person a lot of time to think, to live, to experience, to grow.  Our family experienced the joy of moving into our “long term” home.  We lived through a few bumps and bruises, and were grateful for nothing too serious.  Business got busy through the beautiful autumn months, and we celebrated another holiday season together, thankful for each other and for the many gifts we all gave and received.   We also witnessed a lot in our city, in our country, and throughout the world.  We watched the news, like all of you, and we discussed ...

Teach Me How To Give

Why I Choose To Serve Women

Today's blog post will be short and sweet, but I hope will spark conversation, or thought, or even better... action.I have been thinking a lot lately about giving.  Between the current state of our country and its politics, the wonderful stories behind the Summer Olympics, and even the inspiring stories I find on social media each day, I am struck by how much we can give, and how sometimes, we forget to give.I've also been reminded a lot lately of my faith, and what God calls each of us who call ourselves Christ followers to do.  Give.  Love.  Serve.And so I've been thinking a lot about this.  I want to give more, love more, serve more.  Particularly with my camera.  I'm not writing you with an answer.  I am at the beginning of this journey, but want very much to pursue giving and serving with my camera.  I write you today with a desire to hear from you.  I write you today with questions.Where do you see love and service in your life?  How can you give more with what you've been giving?What about me?  How can a woman with a camera serve those around her?I'm all ears and would love to hear your thoughts!
