I asked for a camera for my most recent birthday and when I asked for one I was really thinking the purpose would be to take pictures for Southern and Thankful. Like for t-shirts and things to post online. It has served its purpose for sure and I have certainly taken plenty of pictures from vacations to TCU football games. I love my camera and oddly I have become one of those people that takes their camera everywhere they go because I always afraid something is going to happen and I am going to wish I had my camera. The coolest thing about it is that it has its own wifi, which means when I take a picture I can have it on my phone in minutes. I AM AMAZED EVERY TIME. Needless to say, I love my camera.
I say all this to tell you that a couple of weeks ago my friend asked me if I would take some pictures of her sororities exec team. When she asked I hadn't really thought about the fact that all the pictures I took on my camera didn't have to be for me. I mean I have a nice enough camera... why not help people out, right? Plus, this girl is one of my favorite friends so of course I said yes. I mean it was pretty cool that they thought I took good enough pictures to take the ones they are going to use for their website. I was and still am honored!
Today I had the privilege of taking their exec pictures and it was so fun! Those girls are so fun and I enjoyed it! Fort Worth has also been having great weather, which made for an even better photoshoot. Huge thanks to ADPI for thinking of me and asking me to take their pics! They are all such pretty and sweet girls... I would be happy to take their pictures anytime!
This is just goes to show you that God is always using our talents in different ways. I am in no way saying I am a professional photographer or anything, but I do have a camera and I do know how to use it. Why not change it up and use that for something different? We all have talents and throughout life you will be surprised several times at how God asks that you use them! Today I am thanking God for putting my photo skills to use in a different way!
Use your talents... you were given them for a reason and don't be afraid to use them in a new way... It actually turns out to be fun!
Southern and Thankful now apparently does photoshoots... how cool!
Midterms are in full swing around here so be sure to keep in mind all of us college kids who are just hoping they can make it to Spring Break! I have a test and a paper due on Thursday so any prayers would be greatly appreciated my friends!
2 days... I can do this. I am thankful!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way. A recent graduate from Texas Christian University who loves any creative insta post, all donuts, and dress pants that make you do a double take. I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
