Beauty Revived 50 Beautiful Mothers Photographer Eleventh Hour Goods, LLCWhat an incredible honor to be asked to find a deserving mother to photograph as part of the
Beauty Revived 50 Beautiful Mothers campaign!

When I read their mission statement of,
To uplift, inspire and empower photographers of faith and integrity to shed light on the good, the strong and the beautiful,”
I knew this was something God was calling me to be a part of.

As part of Beauty Revived, a photography movement, I am asking for nominations for beautiful mothers in or near Columbia, SC to be featured in a national magazine.

 The beauty of these women will not be measured by their waist size or flare for fashion.  No, these women will be chosen because of their real beauty, their courage and their countenance.  The winner will be given a free photo session with Eleventh Hour Goods, LLC and a feature in the Mother’s Day issue of
Beauty Revived magazine.

Beauty Revived is a movement that celebrates women with real beauty.
Photographers donate sessions to these women and their stories are featured in the
 Beauty Revived magazine and website: www.beautyrevived.com.

I will be accepting nominations until February 5, 2017 and will then prayerfully choose one deserving mother to donate a photography session to, as well as some other “treats” donated by local vendors.  The mother chosen will be an example of real beauty and will have shown their beauty by their
service when weary, grace in defeat and kindness when tried. 

My goal is that this will not only be a blessing to an undoubtedly deserving mother, but will spark a local campaign of lifting up those around us and sharing
more of the good in our community that may sometimes get hidden under the “not-so-good”. 

Beauty Revived was started as a way for photographers to use their lens for good and shine light on the real beauty that was happening in our communities.
In the last year and a half, more than 500 women, girls and children have been featured on their website and magazine.

“As a high school senior photographer, I started Beauty Revived because I saw the power that a photographer has 
in shaping perception and altering dialogue on beauty,”
Michelle Gifford, Beauty Revived founder, said.

“The photographers who participate in our campaigns not only have great technical and artistic talent
but also have big hearts and a desire to be more than just a picture taker.
They want to be a photographer who changes the world with their work,” 
Gifford said.

In May 2013, my husband gave me a book. Little did I know, this book would start me on a journey. A journey to a thankful heart. A patient heart. A heart full of Christ-like love.

Here are my most recent “Thank You’s”. To read more about how this journey started, click here! 

Here is #101-120 of my journey to 1,000…

104. Feeding Birds

Thank You, Lord, for the experiences You let us share with our children, like feeding birds. He thought this was SO cool (and a little bit scary) and I thank You for letting us share this with him.
Thank You.

105. Fine Motor Skills

Thank You, Lord, for fine motor skills. Tying shoes, clasping a necklace, and writing my name…..these simple tasks I accomplish each day by Your provision.
Thank You.

107. Slow Mornings

Thank You, Lord, for the mornings we wake up slow. The mornings we all pile in bed together and just…be.
Thank You.

108. Cell Phones

Thank You, Lord, for cell phones. That, with the push of a few buttons, I can speak with almost anyone within a matter of seconds.
Thank You.

109. Fireplaces

Thank You.

112. Visits from Friends

This beautiful soul is Mercy (such a lovely name, right?!) She stopped by our home just to drop off some delicious fresh, homemade bread.

Thank You, Lord, for visiting friends and the blessings they add to our lives.
Thank You.

113. Sifters

There is something heartwarming and organic about a sifter. I don’t know why. I loved watching my Granny use it as she would make her famous homemade biscuits. I’d like to think that our own children will think back with fondness on the times they saw me use ours too……though I’ve never come close to my Granny’s biscuits :)

Thank You, Lord, for flour sifters.
Thank You.

114. Cinnamon Rolls

Thank You, Lord, for cinnamon rolls and all their gooey, warm, goodness.
Thank You.

115. Daddy-Daughter Dances

Thank You, Lord, for daddy-daughter dances. Thank You for the way she looks at him and he looks at her.
Thank You.

116. Learning to Smell

Delaney’s newest trick is to “smell”. She hasn’t quite grasped the concept, but she’s pretty funny when she snorts in effort. I looked over to see Cohen presenting her with a freshly picked “bouquet” of wildflowers (I refuse to call something so beautiful a “weed”) as he smiled and waited patiently for her to “smell” them.

Thank You, Lord, for learning to smell, and the entertainment that accompanies it.
Thank You.

117. Picnics and Quilts

I have such lovely memories of my mom packing up peanut butter & graham cracker sandwiches, sweet tea, and our homemade quilt for a picnic. Sometimes under our playhouse-on-stilts my dad made us. Other times under the big oak tree in our front yard. I want to keep the tradition going with our kids….same snacks, different quilt…

Thank You, Lord, for picnics and quilts.
Thank You.

118. Wardrobe Malfunctions

Thank You, Lord, for wardrobe malfunctions. Thank You for letting me be ready to capture this one for our amusement.
Thank You.

119. Working on Pappy’s Motorcycle

Cohen is all about vehicles. Trains, SUVS, firetrucks, police cars, and motorcycles. So the fact that Pappy has a motorcycle is a big deal. The fact that Pappy lets him help work on it is HUGE.

Thank You, Lord, for the opportunity for Cohen and Pappy to work on his motorcycle together.
Thank You.

120. Reminders

When I looked at Cohen in this moment, I could see him as a teenager. I could see him laughing with his friends….trying to impress a girl….working his first job… And having this moment reminded me of just how quickly that time is approaching. Just how quickly this time will pass…

Thank You, Lord, for reminding me to cherish every moment of their childhood. Please don’t ever stop reminding me.
Thank You.

This session is a perfect example of why I don’t reschedule sessions for overcast skies!

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times:
I love golden sunsets.

But what you may not know,
is how much I love overcast days!

Look at all the rich colors in these images!

The Harrison family is simply gorgeous to begin with;
and I know how much work they
(by “they” everyone knows I mean “mom”)
put into their wardrobe.
So I’m glad we didn’t have to reschedule this session or the fun we had together <3

Yay for babies!!!

I know, I know, you’re probably thinking:
Doesn’t your family already have 4 kids?

I grew up with dreams of having to use 2 hands to count my babies, so I will say it again:
Yay for babies!!!

I probably use the term “sweetest family” a lot….but seriously guys:
Davis Family = suuuuuwwweeeetest family!

They brought along their itty-bitty 2 month old baby boy for some Christmas family photos,
but asked if they could get some of just the two of them too.

Of course!
Before there were 3,
there were 2
and that’s something more important than most people give credit for.

oh….and their handsome little man was born on the same day as our oldest son…
I thought that was pretty cool <3

All of my sessions are special to me, but this one had a little extra sweetness to it:
little Langston!

I had the immense pleasure of photographing LaTrice’s maternity session,
so it was such a delight to finally get to meet Langston in person!

And just look at how stunning and cozy the three of them look in their Christmas mini!

It is extremely humbling when a family invites me to photograph them year after year,
and the Lawrence family has become one of those dear families.

But even more wonderful than that:
Emily has become a dear friend…
I like to think that I predicted that after our first lifestyle session together here :)

This time, we were having a Christmas Mini Session….

and seriously
(in your best Chandler Bing voice)
could they BE any cuter???
