In Front of the Camera { Earthborn Giveaway Winner}

I am absolutely comfortable BEHIND the camera. I love photography and taking video, editing photos, graphics, ALL of that. But put me in front of a camera and my issues with insecurity come out of the closet! My pictures for the blog needed to be updated and I was not looking forward to having them done again. As I forced myself to make the call, I knew that I wanted my sweet friend Elizabeth Ann to be the photographer.

 

 

This girl is the most amazing teenager I have ever met. Her love for the Lord and the people around her radiates from her sweet spirit. EA is not your average teenager. She is becoming a world renown international wedding and portrait photographer, has an amazing little business going on AND she is only 17!! Read this little excerpt about her from her website.

“As a full time student located in Birmingham, Alabama, an international wedding and portrait photographer, and with a heart for Haiti that is second to none, God has shown me that there’s no room for settling. I was not created to sit back and be silent, I was created for greatness. I believe that as children of God, this is what we are called to. My entire life I’ve lived with the belief that I “can’t”. Can’t be good enough. Can’t match up. Can’t reach my dreams. Can’t be all that God has called me to be. For once, I’m choosing to believe that I can. I’m choosing to believe that I was made for more. I’m choosing to believe that I was made for greatness and that I am selling myself and this world short by settling for anything less. I believe that God is calling His children around the globe to see ourselves the way He sees us and rise up in our callings; it’s an honor to be a part of this movement.”

WOW right? God has certainly used this young lady to bless so many lives, including mine. EA took me to Homewood for a little photoshoot and helped me put all of my insecurities aside. She made me feel comfortable and she was quick. The agony was over in a snap. She has a fantastic eye for light, depth and creativity in her photographs and I think she did an amazing job on my pictures.
