WHAT MY GRANNY TAUGHT ME

 

When I was younger and we went to visit my grandparents, there was always one place you could find me hanging out.  My granny had a full shelf of photo albums, one for each of the grandkids.  She would put new photos in them every once in a while and write a little note about when and where the photo was taken.  I have spent many hours of my life pouring over those albums (and still do when I go to see my grandparents).  Each photo brought back a memory and usually laughter.  Through the years I watched as our family grew and changed; and when I was in college, granny gave me my album full of memories.  Today, it is still one of my most prized possessions.

 

Hi there! I’m Katie - photographer and (aspiring) writer based in Lubbock, Tx but most days I’m busy being momma to a one-year-old and consuming too much Chick-Fil-A. My husband Craig and I have been married for 7 years. We walked through some really hard days early on in our marriage which left me feeling very broken for a long time. But because of those circumstances, I can look back and see the things that God orchestrated - like our sweet Lynlee girl for one. I saw God redeem our story and see how he is still restoring the things that felt broken and unsure for so long into something better than I could have imagined.

Photography is a chance to celebrate those little and big moments in life. It’s a way to find that little bit of beauty in the struggle and can give you some hindsight on life when you look back and remember the stage of life you were in - whether it was a time of joy, of struggle, or a time of being renewed. It’s a gift and an honor to capture families as they grow and change and to get to love on families through joy and struggles.
