Signs of Spring + a reminder {Oklahoma Lifestyle Photographer}

My favorite season.

A fresh start.

A new beginning.

Old things made new again.

A promise of renewed hope, just as Jesus promised a new life in Him.

I love these images… not because they’re technically perfect by any means.  But because of what they represent to me.  A reminder that we are never too old to start something new, to set a new goal.  It’s never too late to realize your passion in life and finally do something about making your dreams come true.  We can’t just sit idly by without doing the work though.  We have to put the wheels in motion.

After all, isn’t that what the tulip does every spring?  It sits dormantly yet faithfully during the cold winter, believing that the promise of rain and warmth will give it the strength it needs to work and push itself up from the dirt to produce a new little sprout.  Then, with time and nurture, it grows into a beautiful flower shouting to the world that God is in control.

It is He who calls us to believe and have faith, but He also calls us to act… Something I am striving to do.

“In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. ” James 2:17

“You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did.” James 2:22

These little “flowers” are all over our yard right now, but they make a pretty picture, don’t you think? :)

Speaking of acting… I’m really starting to fall in love with the entire editing process, experimenting with different textures and colors.  It’s exciting to see how images can go from flat and boring to bright and beautiful, full of pop and depth.  Some of these photos showcase Michelle Kane’s textures.  I just love her work. Go check her out when you have a chance. I promise you will be wowed!

And I have to mention one of my all time favorite heroes, Laura from Pretty Presets for Lightroom.  Nearly all of my edits begin in Lightroom and she makes it so much fun! I have learned so much from her this past year.  She is amazing at her craft and blesses everyone in the photography world with her talent.

Until next time!

Be a blessing,

Missy
