New year. New possibilities.
This time last year, we faced our first full year of being full-time photographers…and we had only 2 weddings booked.
Everything was uncertain.
Often we want to make our lives look so picture perfect – everything falls in its perfect place and perfect time. Look how pretty our pictures show our lives to be! But, as you live life…it can be so freakin’ messy. Chaotic. Uncertain.
That’s why I love the new year. It’s a new start to look out to a scary but anything-is-possible for these next 365 days. Every January, we have to push ourselves to dream again, to try again, to fail again, to get up again.
Know this for sure: If you’re going to pursue anything great in life, you’ll fail. You’ll make mistakes. You may not know what you’re doing half the time. And, because many people would rather take the safe route” in life, you’ll be moving against the flow of traffic. But how exhilarating a feeling it is to walk the other way!
“I DREAM, I TEST MY DREAMS AGAINST MY BELIEFS, I DARE TO TAKE RISKS, AND I EXECUTE MY VISION TO MAKE THOSE DREAMS COME TRUE.”
- WALT DISNEY
For this new year, we urge you. Dream. Then, work to make that dream come true.
We want to thank our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, from whom all blessings flow. We wouldn’t be here today without His faithfulness and lifesaving love.
We also want to dedicate this post to everyone who made us believe dreams can come true.
Lastly, this post is for our precious baby. We’ve dreamt and prayed so much for you and we cannot wait to finally hold you in our arms this August.
