The daily desserts of beauty in the MS Delta wasn't something I appreciated. Until I left, that is. To go back to that beautiful land brings me such joy now that I do not get the daily experience of cotton blooms and dirt roads filled with tractor treads. While my list of fav-o-rite Delta things runs long, a Delta sunset has to be in the top 5. What our daughter, Celie, calls the Cotton Candy Sky seems to last for hours, and there is something peaceful about that deepening of color from pink and purple to orange and red. If I could, I'd reach out and grab a big handful of that Cotton Candy, knowing it would melt in my mouth with sugary sweetness. Thank you, God, for such beauty and for an appreciation for it that only came when I didn't taste it every day.
"No," said Peter, "You shall never wash my feet." Jesus answered, "Unless I wash you, you have no part with me." "Then, Lord," Simon Peter replied, "not just my feet but my hands and head as well!"
Why am I a photographer? I want to bring joy to parents and families by capturing the beauty of their little ones with pictures. Children are a precious gift, and I am amazed God allows us such a blessing.
Why Muddy Feet? First, it reminds me of my Savior, without whom I would be sentenced to drown in a puddle of my own sin. Second, it pays homage to my husband, Jonathan, who for 20 years has carried the nickname, Mud, and encourages me to follow this dream of photography. Third, it describes my style of photography, which is to capture families having fun together and loving one another. And, sometimes, that means you have to get dirty.
Thanks for visiting the Muddy Feet Photography blog. Please return often and call me to book a session. I'd love to help your capture those sweet smiles, precious faces, and muddy feet before they are only a memory.
