In 2015 I bought my first camera. I worked with a photographer for a year as a newborn photo assistant. I loved photography but candles ended up being the kind of business I set my eyes on. All the while, growing the candle business I never stopped learning photography. I sold some prints and canvases but quickly realized I just wasn't confident enough to do that. I didn't want to loose my joy by making it a business. (NOT EVERYTHING needs to be a business, even if you are really good at it. Sometimes hobbies are just that. Hobbies.)
I have had people ask so many times about it but I also just replied that the photography was my hobby and just for myself.
One thing I've been working on is knowing I have been given a gift. It's not just meant for me to do, but for me to share. I've been sharing my photos for a long time but it was time to step up my game and finally say the words; I am a photographer.
I am a nature photographer.
I am a still life photographer.
My art is good enough because the Lord says it is.
My art is glorifying the Lord because He has made ALL things.
I am simply just taken what He has made and showing you what I see.
Infinite beauty in the every day.
Prints and Greeting Cards are now available on the newly created website, www.cultivatebymnk.com.
I am very excited and nervous for this new facet of the Cultivate brand but it feels freeing to finally see these photos on PRINT.
Thank you Lord for the provision and guidance as I seek your will and voice as I use my gifts to Glorify your name; Jesus. Amen.
