A few weeks ago I got to spend some time with this sweet little newly-turned seven year old! Bristol's mom called me to book a session because she just couldn't bear the thought of not freezing this season in her little girl's life. She said that Bristol is changing so much these days and she wants to have tangible memories of it.
We wandered around Bristol's hometown, and photographed her in back alleys and side streets. We had a beautiful sunny spring afternoon. It was a bit blustery that day as well, which can be challenging sometimes, but I LOVE the way wind can add movement and life to photos.
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
