Hello, sweet friend.
I AM SO HAPPY YOU'RE HERE
& KNOW THAT I'M HERE TO SERVE YOU.
I am bold and fearless when it comes to loving my family. I wish I could document everything all the time; every giggle, every first step and even every ouchy that creates this wild yet wonderful journey of motherhood, but I can't do that and neither can you. So I'm here that way when you do get to, I can help pull out those emotions and freeze them for a lifetime! With motherhood comes struggles but it's the most beautiful and wonderful time in a woman's life. Far to often we forget to prioritize documenting this marvelous journey. Sometimes we fear how our kids will behave or we just haven't thought about the day that will come when we can't hold our littles anymore. We don't think about what it'll be like later down the road and missing those memories, not having them in a frame or canvas to remind us of those days when we held their tiny hands; and then life passes by. We all have memories in our minds but to see it helps us re-live those moments more vividly. Your children will grow up to bring their children or even their children's children to show them all the love you had and where they came from. A photo is more than a photo, it's a family heirloom and I strive to capture candid and authentic emotions so you can remember just how you felt in that moment even 20 years down the road. My greatest joy is getting to witness the beautiful transformations you go through on your journey while capturing the most precious milestones in your life.
-From one mother to another-
From the valley to the mountain tops.
A NAME WITH A MEANING.
I don't want to keep you to long but I love to share my testimony any chance I get! The meaning behind the name Captured by Grace;
I was a very poor and troubled young girl who ventured down all the wrong paths and went through some very traumatic events, I won't go into detail on here, but it caused me to shut off from the rest of the world. I wanted to love and be happy like other kids but it just didn't seem to be written in my story. I met my amazing husband right at the turn of my life and we got married shortly after. During that time I finally found a way to process my past trauma and allow myself to heal but my struggles weren't over yet. I thought I'd have lots of time for growing but next thing we knew, my belly was doing all the growing! We were expecting and it was supposed to be the happiest moment of my life but I was terrified. One traumatic birth and some months later I was still battling severe post partum depression and anxiety. My husband didn't know how to help and I felt like I was drowning. One year he surprised me with my first camera and at first I was reluctant but through it, I found a new purpose and a new way to view life. It pushed me out of my comfort zone and has seriously been a heaven sent. Now I get use my gift to help other amazing women capture their most precious moments in their lives! I get to uplift them and encourage them by sharing my story and offering a listening ear. I was captured by grace and this is not the end, it's merely the beginning of my journey!
