Until now, the news of my official photography name has been painstakingly contained within me. I decided, today, right now, as the last moments of 2008 ebb away and we usher into a new year, that I would declare this happy news on my blog:
~Crooked Stream Photography~
It's out now! But I wanted to share the story behind it...because it blesses me so.
For a while now, I've been praying for a suitable and very significant name for my art. I desperately wanted to use something dear to my heart, creative, clean sounding, and just...me- expressing what the Lord has done through this thing called photography. I knew using your own name as a title is a classic thing photographers do, but it just didn't quite match my wishful ideals. Besides, it's not me, it's the Lord, Who is working in me...and that's what He showed me:
My name means "Crooked Stream", and over the years, that has been a treasure to me. I have realized that I am crooked, and the Lord is the straight path that I desperately desire to follow. He is leading me to His glorious City, to be like Him. And when He revealed to me what I need to call my photography, I knew it was the most perfect answer in the entire world. Even down to the verse that I tag right along with Crooked Stream Photography shows His love and care for every detail: "There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God..." Psalms 46:4
In closing, it is my prayer, with all of my heart: to make glad the city of God!
In only a few hours...HAPPY 2009!!!!!
