Austin is such an incredible city for exploring - It has beautiful architecture, buildings and textures, and at the same time, has places like the Greenbelt. These pictures are from mine and Lauren's trip to Bull Creek, the other day. Thank you to my sweet friend for being my beautiful model and putting up with my "stand over in that light" or "ooh, stand near that rock" requests. I am so glad Instagram brought us together through a mutual love of exploring and capturing God's creation in little 1x1 squares. I have loved getting to know her and discussing life, love, and Jesus with her. She is full of encouraging insight and has been so supportive.
Explorations with these lovely ladies are some of my favorites. I am thankful for their ability to push me outside of my comfort zone and to challenge me. They are always good for a laugh and are wonderful people to discuss life with. Although the four of us couldn't be in more different places in our lives, there is still something that ties us together. We started our friendship through photography, but I think it will continue because of their caring nature and our want to see each other succeed. In a world that is always about competition, it is nice to have such a talented group of ladies on my side.
More adventures to come!
I'm at a point in my life where a lot people frequently ask "so, whats next?". Their intentions are always to start a conversation or to genuinely find out what is new in my life, however, I find it a very hard question to answer. I struggle with whether I want to find a career that is steady, reliable, but behind a desk or if I want to turn my passions and hobbies into a career. While I'm trying to figure this 'stuff' out, I have been blessed with a community of creatives that constantly inspire me. People who push me to try new things, encourage me to use my gifts, and surround me with love and support. One of my favorite things to do is wander around Austin with a few friends and our cameras and see what kind of magic we can find. The eastside of Austin never fails to provide the perfect backdrop for a quick photo shoot. The fact that these ladies are beautiful people (inside and out) is just an added bonus!
