Welcome

If you found this page via http://www.blueivyphoto.com don’t worry- you are in the right place!  I am still Blue Ivy Photography, but I started a new space to share my passions, creativity, and faith.

I am pleased to announce the birth of our third child and that I am coming back to my business starting in April 2019!  Its been a long and necessary break from my photography, but I am so excited to be back taking photos of the wonderful people in my life.  Please use the contact tab if you’d like to book a session 🙂

 

A little back story:

August 2017 I felt God firmly telling me to close down my studio. My photography business (Blue Ivy Photography) was my baby- 6 years of pouring my heart into it and just like that I had a choice to make. After lots of tears, conversations and prayer, I decided to let it go for 6 months.  Then after that 6 months, I got pregnant!  It was the hardest pregnancy and the toughest year of my adult life… but now we have another sweet little boy and our family feels complete.

In giving up my business I was honestly afraid that we would struggle financially without my income- but God provided income. I was scared to lose a part of my carefully crafted identity- I didn’t and God provided wisdom. The truth is that I held onto this traditional idea of what I *should* do with my passion- but I failed to consult the only one whose opinion matters- all out of fear.

My friends- fear robs us of the blessings! God desires us to hold the things in our lives  with an open hand. He has taught me so much about being intentional with my choices- not letting FEAR be the driving force.

That is what this page is all about.

Being intentional. Loving my life. Enjoying the gifts and passions he placed in our lives- all in a way that honors HIM.

I’m so very excited to have you here on this journey with me. My hope is that this page encourages you to love your life as we laugh and maybe cry a little together. Either way you are welcome here- to be uniquely you.
