I don't know about all of you, but the holiday weekend felt SO. VERY. NEEDED. in my house. I shirked my dirty house, fought a touch of the flu (but powered through and ate turkey, mashed potatoes, and pie anyway), reconnected with family I hadn't seen in ages, watched not one but three movies over the weekend, had an inspiring coffee date with my sis-in-law (the designer behind this cute jewelry shop), got my dreadfully dirty engagement and wedding bands polished up at the jewelers, AND snuck in a little quality quiet time at Barnes & Noble where I finally picked up Big Magic. I'm only 22 pages in and I've already laughed out loud and amen'ed. So I'm feeling all psyched and ready to hit work hard over the next few weeks. As I was making my list this morning, I realized I never blogged sweet Michelle's senior session back in October, so I decided it's high time to share some more photos from her session! Enjoy and have a happy first week of December folks! Michelle is an incredibly sweet girl with a sunny smile and an adorable giggle...
...but she's not to be messed with. Note the photo below. She's her father's daughter and loves guns and hunting. At the session consultation her dad proudly told me how she'd shot her first deer last year. ;)
Michelle, it was so fun to meet you and have you in front of my lens! You are a beauty through and through!

Hey there! I'm Deborah Grace, and this little space you've stumbled into is a peek into my world, and into the world of those who've allowed me into their stories . I'm a photographer, an artist, a storyteller, and a dreamer. I adore the way photography has afforded me the opportunity to glimpse into people's stories. People are beautiful, imperfect, messy and wonderful. I think most times we just need to know that we're doing okay at this life thing. That's why I take photos. I think people often miss the beauty of their own stories because they're in the middle of them. I think my lens is basically just a gift God put in my hands to help others see how wonderful they really are, and that their stories matter. I always feel like the lucky one because I am. Getting to hear your messy, imperfect, hilarious, one-of-a-kind adventure-of-a-story never fails to convince me that in spite of everything, God is making something really beautiful out of all of us. And that inspires my socks off every time. So yes. I'm the lucky one who gets an in to the beautiful stories that people are. I love new friends so drop me a line if you'd like to connect. -xoxo
