A couple super fun ones!!!
This is my first personal blog update. I have things that I need to communicate with you guys sometimes and I think this is a good place to start. I am not just a photographer I am an artist. It’s taken me a long time to be brave enough to make that statement but I feel it to be true.. and I SO love the truth.
I am an artist and my photos are important to me. Very important. God gave me a gift and I try to use it in many different ways. I love to make clients happy. I love to have photos of my own family to look back on and I also try to make *art*. Something that goes beyond the photograph. My art comes from things stuck in my brain. I stay up late thinking about some ideas and I feel I must get them out. I hope my art will serve a purpose. But that is up to my Lord.
So that brings me to my point. I have always had a deep sorrow for suicide victims and their families. I am not sure what started it, but its deep inside my heart. I have two causes in my life that I feel compelled to try to help and that is one (the other I will address at a later time).
I say my Rosary and I pray for those seriously depressed, for those ready to give up. Prayer is the most powerful thing in the world and I bet you to join me! I also wanted to help in a more physical and direct way.
I decided to start my own suicide awareness campaign(ish). After doing a couple pics about it on my flickr I thought a picture is worth a thousand words and it may be my way to help. I have no idea if anybody will ever see the photos and think twice when they are broken but I pray it helps.. somebody.
My goal is to not glamorize it, my goal is to show how shocking tragic and permanent such a decision is. We all go through difficult times, we all want to take the easy road and just give up. But you cant, we cant! It will crush so many more people then you can begin to realize. You will change the way the world should have been….
I want everyone I know and anybody reading this to know I honestly do love you. I will always find time to listen. I will be so sad if anything happens to you. You can message me and I will not judge you. I will just listen.. ultimately it is up to you to save your own life. So please reach out to SOMEBODY.
Message me any time GodsEmerald3@aol.com
Pretty pretty please, don’t you ever ever feel
Like you’re less than, less than perfect
Pretty pretty please, if you ever ever feel like you’re nothing
You are perfect to me!
Sweet Emma was 6 weeks old in these photos. So beautifully chubby and strong. She rolled over during our shoot. I was NOT expecting that!!!
