Here’s a real thought that I have been mulling over lately. Stick with me ok? Why do we become disenchanted with who we are? Why don’t we ever get ENchanted with who we are? That might be a bold way to start this post, but hey…that’s how I roll (yes..I did just say “that’s how […]

  • Linda Mae Churchill - I so love reading your blog. You have beautiful photos and inspiring words. Let God use you to encourage others, especially those you are not in direct contact with. God has given you this desire to write and so just do it! Let the words flow through you whatever they might be. Be honest and people will continue to read, be awestruck and inspired. Keep it up Amy. I will continue reading. <3ReplyCancel

  • Juanita - Amy, I SO look forward to each and every one of your posts! You are a fantastic friend, a wonderful example and I value your honesty. How many of us feel exactly this way and yet are afraid to voice it…because of how we will be perceived…because we might shatter an image that we work so hard to create…because…well there are a thousand reasons. I am working on this myself and I never would have thought this was a struggle for you and yet that gives me hope! We have so much to be thankful for and we have a hope, that so many don’t have, but the truth is, this is a daily struggle. If only we could see ourselves as He truly sees us, as an amazing work of art, that He put thought into and lovingly created. I truly am praying for that revelation, not just as head knowledge, but to REALLY know it in my heart…I will pray it for you too. Love you friend!ReplyCancel

  • Sarah - You have so much to give, so much to say! And so do I! I love this post Amy, well done!!! <3 you!!!ReplyCancel

  • Amy - Thank you for responding!! I love hearing your hearts as well. I think it is even more so for stay at home moms. Bind together….follow the Lord’s leading…and obey when He says to be real. That is what my goal is right now.ReplyCancel

Every now and then I get an email full of questions about photography. What has happened in the past is that I would take the time to write it, be personal about it…and then the person who asked never writes back, *sigh*.  So here’s a Q&A post that more than just one person can benefit […]

  • Dayna - Hey Amy – Thanks for posting this! So funny – I’ve actually been wanting to shoot you an email to ask what camera you would recommend! Thanks for your insight…I will be trying this whole concept of capturing the light! Bless you guys – DaynaReplyCancel

  • Dayna - oh – PS! haha….also – with the 50 mm lens – do you find that it is difficult to catch spontaneous stuff with it? I’m always feeling like I want a zoom so I can be out of the way and try to capture natural things going on without people feeling I’m in their space., but zooms are also heavy and can be awkward. What do you think?ReplyCancel

  • Amy - Hi Dayna! I do agree that with a prime lens we can be in people’s spaces. There are lots of pros to having a zoom lens, I just don’t mind moving around a lot and don’t find I miss the shot all that much. You’ve got to be fast though!!ReplyCancel

I remember one family gathering when I was a young girl, we were at my Aunt’s house I believe (a place that we didn’t go very often). These family reunions happened once a year, mostly at Christmastime. Now as a young woman I understand why we had such distance, but at the time I didn’t […]

  • Jessica Deane - Sigh- seriously love it. I want one too!! hehe. Your husband is so talented. Maybe I will request this out of mine too….. but… I dunno how great it will turn out! haha,ReplyCancel

  • jeanette Krzyzek - Love it. Jeremy did a wonderful job. I wish I could shrink myself down and live inside of it for a couple of days! Looks so Posh! Love love love! :)ReplyCancel

  • Juanita - Jeremy did such a fabulous job, I am very impressed. I never had a dollhouse growing up and totally wanted my girls to have one. We brought Bryttain hers, for her 3rd birthday and all 3 kids play with it still on a DAILY basis. So fun!ReplyCancel

  • Renee - These photos are so whimsical and girly, I love itReplyCancel

  • Jeremy's Dad - I love it. I didn’t know it had a chandelier or a photo of the family on the wall. Truly a special touch. Makes one wonder why an aunt would show a young girl something they couldn’t touch.

    You and Jeremy have made up for that. What a blessing you guys are!ReplyCancel
