+ a thank you, and lydia. +

An incredible thank you to everyone that stopped what they were doing this past week to encourage me in the form of comments, emails, texts, phone calls, letters at my doorstep, packages in the mail, tweets, food, prayer and hugs. Every time I hit rock bottom I have the ability to see myself a little clearer. I’m doing better: trying to let myself rest, I will be taking an embarrassingly easy load next quarter, focusing on what I love a little more, and remembering to set my heart on things above (*). Thank you, everyone – I love you all and am so grateful for so many that care. I am blessed.

On Friday evening I took a couple hours to shoot the beautiful Lydia. JUST FOR FUN. Yes that’s right, hehe. And it was so enjoyable. I wanted to do some portrait work that was a little softer, a little more feminine and a little closer to what I’ve been feeling over the last few months. Here’s a few photos from the shoot, and the rest you can find here. You can click each photo for a bigger view (I recommend this, hah).
