30 Days of Thanksgiving - Day 8

November 8 - Thankful for being able to do what I love

It was a beautiful day so I contacted a girl who I had scheduled for Sunday to finish up her Senior pictures.  I asked if she wanted to meet after school - taking advantage of the perfect 70 degree, sunny weather.  She said it wasnt a problem & we met up...

.... only to get some beautiful pictures...

But I got the best compliment at the end of the session - her mom said to me, "This really suits your personality" ... she told me how comfortable I made her daughter (& her friends that came to another session). 

That just made my day....

I do love to meet people - & talk with them - & learn their stories & who they are, what they look forward to in the future... love to bring out smiles, or catch emotion in a face.

(These are her favorite books... & she's going to college to do something with English)

& I am so thankful for that opportunity to do all of that.

I leave a photo session every time so thankful to meet the people I just met & getting to know them... & thankful that I am so blessed to be able to do what I love... capturing a moment in time for each person.


  1. You are seriously inspiring me, Rebecca!

    Now can I ask...what kind of camera do you have? Did you take any classes, or self-teach? You have so many great ideas for photo shoots; I would love to do something like this on the side, after I am done with my degree in March. You really do have a talent, and it shows in every photo you take!

  2. You do have an eye!

    If you lived closer, I'd see what you could do with this old couple. I mean that!

  3. Agreed, you are very blessed with an amazing talent.
    Your Friend, m.
    p.s. Sorry, I have nothing funny to add to that.
