my new photography blog!!!

Now it’s a work in progress, but I wanted to get it up and running since I had my first official paying customer photo shoot yesterday!  What a blessing to be able to do what I love for other families!  As of now, I have another photo shoot booked for May and 4 other interested customers!  Wow!

Last summer, while reading A Praying Life by Paul E. Miller, our wonderful “facilitator” encouraged us to pray for something that we never would think to take to the Lord because it seems too selfish.  But God wants to be part of all the decisions we make in our life. So my request was to pray for a photography business one day, not because I need to get a job, but because I love taking pictures and editing them!  For pure enjoyment!
And now, here we are 9 months later, and God is opening the door for me to step in!  Honestly, I never would of attempted to start anything right now because I feel like Austin has so many wonderful, creative photographers and there isn’t room for one more!  But God had other plans.  A sweet blog reader of mine left a comment and asked me to take their portraits and I just couldn’t say no to that!  Seriously flattering!

So, please, go on over and check out my new photography blog!  It even rhymes-JulieP Photography! Heehee!

Here is a “taste” of the photo shoot from yesterday, no pun intended.  (well, maybe it was.)


sweet thing!
