Hey everybody!

The other night I was at a networking event and there was a stamp-bracelet maker there and his slogan was "what's your one word?"

What a great word "create" is, whether you're an artist, a chef, an actor, a mother, or whatever. Putting something into the world that wasn't there before... what a gift.

As a photographer, I often forget that I have a unique gift from God to create via personal projects. I spend most of my days creating for clients: capturing memories and creating art. However, when it comes to creating for myself, it often slips my mind. I don't know that that was always the case, especially when I first started in this profession.

Here's an image I created recently (you'll see a shoot I did at the same location on the blog soon), and I just have to say... I'm thankful for the ability to create.

Talk to you soon,
