Pursuing Your Passion In Excellence

It is a blessing to discover and follow your passion and God’s purpose for your life. Most people fail to pursuit their passions due to fear and doubt. But there are others who take a leap of faith and strategically pursuit their passion. The people who turn their passions into business have a tendency to thrive, especially when they are in line with God’s will. My dear friend, Chef Sondra Corry, is an example of someone who is pursuing her passion in excellence. And it is truly God’s will for her life. Chef Sondra is the owner and operator of Personal Touch Catering here in Charlotte, NC. She is a trained chef who takes pride in her work. Not only does her food taste amazing, but the presentation is always immaculate. Chef Sondra specializes in creating flavor combinations that take traditional dishes to the next level. She not only caters weddings and events, she also provides personal chef services. I had the privilege of photographing her for her upcoming website. It is always great to work with someone who truly loves what they do. Be sure to check out Chef Sondra’s Facebook page, Personal Touch Catering.



Love Is In The Air

I had the pleasure of photographing Michelle and Erick earlier this month. This couple will be tying the knot later this year. I’m extremely excited for their upcoming nuptials. I am so grateful that they took the time out of their schedules to allow me to capture some of their love. I pray that they have many blissful years in a thriving marriage. Congratulations Mich and E!!!!

Forever Family

Growing up, I spent a lot of time with my family. That included time with parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. There was never a dull moment when spending time with the family. We actually talked and played games and cooked meals together. I had an opportunity to photograph a family that traveled from as far as New York City. Not saying that because it is big time NYC. I say that because this family genuinely values the time that they spend together, creating lasting memories. I am grateful that they chose me to photograph them. Here are a few photos from my time with them.

The Gift of Life

Parents are given an amazing gift from God in the form of children. There is an inexplicable bond between parent and child. The love is unconditional, just like God’s love for His children. Psalm 139:13-14 says that He forms the inward parts and that He covers the child in the mother’s womb. Children are fearfully and wonderfully made, by God. My dear friends entrusted their maternity session to me. With this being their first child, I wanted to ensure that I captured their desired vision.  Here are a few photos from their session.

Mission Complete

On February 1st, 2016, I started a digital photography certification class at the local community college. I signed up for the class to gain a better understanding of photography and how to become better at what I love to do. Although I have attended other classes and workshops prior to now, this class taught me quite a few things. I learned the importance of metering. I learned how to meter. I learned how to use flash effectively. I developed an efficient work flow in LightRoom. On February 29th, 2016, the last day of class, we took a field trip to Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. I had the opportunity to see how much I progressed from the first day to the last day. It was a wonderful experience to become a student of photography in order to become a better photographer.
