I have felt for a while that I should share how I got into photography, it's hard to know how to put it into just a few words and I fight the fear that no one cares to hear it.
In 2011 I was praying about my future, not knowing what I wanted and feeling stuck. I started looking at university of the nations website (in Kona Hawaii) and was drawn to the photography course. Would have been a normal thing for me to have been drawn to if I took pictures or owned a camera. I mostly was looking for an excuse to go back to living in Hawaii. I couldn't get the course out of my head but didn't think I would actually go. To make a long story short some days later my dad told me he had prayed and wanted to give me one of his camera's. A cannon 5d isn't really a beginner camera, but of course I was thrilled and had that feeling the Lord was up to something. I applied for the school, didn't get in. Okay Lord what now? Well I can't remember the exact amount of time but I got an email saying someone backed out and I got in!
I never imagined where photography would take me. Honestly after the course was over I didn't think I would take photos again. But God had a different plan. Obviously there is so much more to the story before during and after, I will slowly share more.
He put this desire in my heart I didn't know existed and placed my feet on a path that I couldn't see was coming. I don't share this to say look where I am now, but I share this because God is faithful and can work so fast if you let him. "For I know the plans I have for you" He says it and he means it.
