ll Emme ll Senior Photographer

When you get a text on Saturday saying “what are you doing Monday? And do you want to take my senior pictures?”

It was quite a spontaneous shoot really, stopping by the side of the road to catch the golden peak of sunrise, then on to the next destination.

The light that day was absolutely perfect, and getting to watch the world wake up is truly one of my favorite things!

This is going to pretty much be a ‘hardly any words’ post. Just because I’m at a loss of what to say. These pictures speak for themselves.

Sheer joy, delicate yet strong life, beautiful, miracle and so much love.

 

Absolutely loved getting to photograph my friend’s 2 week old, Carolynn Rose. Isn’t she precious?!

‘Thank You’


How do I say thank you Lord

For the life that You gave, the cross that You bore

For the love you poured out, to ransom my soul

My heart pours out, this thankful song!

 

 

Lyrics from “Thank You” by Bethel Music

Have It All

You can have it all, Lord
Every part of my world
Take this life and breathe on
This heart that is now Yours

Morning frost

Oh the joy I’ve found
Surrendering my crowns
At the feet of the King
Who surrendered everything

Blade of grass

Oh the peace that comes
When I’m broken and undone
By Your unfailing grace
I can lift my voice and say

Morning frost

 

You can have it all, Lord
Every part of my world
Take this life and breathe on
This heart that is now Yours

 

Morning bokeh

There is no greater call
Than giving You my all
I lay it all down

Morning dew

 

There is no greater love
No higher name above
I lay it all down

 

Reflections

You can have it all, Lord
Every part of my world
Take this life and breathe on
This heart that is now Yours

 

DewConstantly reminded of His goodness to us! Just being out there this morning as the sun slowly melted the frost off these simple blades of grass, that right there was making me want to praise my Redeemer! My heart is full.

Great and mighty is your faithfulness, O God my Father! Great is your faithfulness.

You are so, so good!

What are you praising Him for today?!

Lyrics: Bethel Music “Have it all”

Winter

Grander earth has quaked before
Moved by the sound of His voice
Seas that are shaken and stirred
Can be calmed and broken for my regard

DSC04995_

Through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
Through it all, through it all
It is well

DSC04981

Far be it from me to not believe
Even when my eyes can’t see

DSC05002_

And this mountain that’s in front of me
Will be thrown into the midst of the sea

DSC04987

Through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
Through it all, through it all
It is well

DSC05018_

 

So let go my soul, and trust in Him
The waves and wind still know His name…

And it is well, with me.

Lyrics by Bethel Music “It is well”

Senior Session ll Susanna

Weekend autumn photo shoots that include cool colored doors, brick walls and exploring the woods is always so much fun! And what makes it even more amazing is when you have a gorgeous friend to do it with 🙂

Sue, You are such a genuine friend, and seriously so much fun to be with!!! 🙂

Morning Dew

There’s a wreckage, there’s a fire
There’s a weakness in my love
There’s a hunger I can’t control

DSC00068

Lord, I falter and I fall down
Then I hold on to chains You broke
When You came and saved my soul.

DSC00074

Hallelujah
We are free to struggle
We’re not struggling to be free

DSC00066

Your blood bought and makes us children
Children, drop your chains and sing

DSC00149

So, why Lord, do I still fail,
Do I wear thin?
Why do I still give in to temptation?

DSC00132

On my own, I am bankrupt,
I don’t trust You or take You at Your word
What You’ve promised.

DSC00075_
Hallelujah
We are free to struggle
We’re not struggling to be free

DSC00110

Your blood bought and makes us children
Children, drop your chains and sing

DSC00105

 

Hallelujah,
Death is overcome and we are breathing
Hallelujah,
Our stone hearts become flesh that’s beating

DSC00155

Hallelujah,
Chains have been undone and we are singing
Hallelujah,
The fire has begun. Can you feel it?

DSC00076

 

Hallelujah,
Death is overcome and we are breathing
Hallelujah,
Our stone hearts become flesh that’s beating

Hallelujah,
Chains have been undone and we are singing
Hallelujah,
The fire has begun. Oh, can you feel it?

DSC00097_

Hallelujah
We are free to struggle
We’re not struggling to be free

Your blood bought and makes us children
Children, drop your chains and sing!

Turn-Around-Macro

 

Ever been in a ‘rut’ with photography? It’s NOT fun!! But it is a tad nice cause it forces you to try new things, learn new things etc.

That’s where I’ve been lately, and sometimes I don’t like to go out and shoot. I just don’t feel the creativity right then. But I force myself to!

Looking through a filter for this pic. Framing the flower. Love how it turned out! 🙂
Through the filter

 

 

These next two were pretty awesome to do! I call it turn-around-macro. It’s where you take the lens off, turn it around and take the pic. It’s really tricky, And since the lens ins’t attached, you can pull it away from the camera body just a tad and get some cool sun flare 🙂 (Hence the pink hues)
