I have some EXCITING news to share with my loyal clients and friends…
Today, I officially left my day job and I am thrilled to announce that Overbay Photography is now a full-time REALITY!
I have spent the past 5 years in a cubicle working 40 hours a week and early on photography became my creative outlet. It quickly became a passion that I knew I wanted to turn into something more. This has been a much needed and long awaited life adjustment in the making. I could not have made it to this point without the love and support of those closest to me. I want to say a special thank you to my husband for putting up with me while I balanced practically two full-time jobs. Thank you for helping me thru all of the late nights editing photos, traveling, and having to say no to things in our personal life in order to grow this business. Special thanks to my parents and in-laws also for understanding when family plans did not always work out the way we had hoped due to scheduling conflicts. To Stephanie and Heather, my wonderful assistants, thank you SO MUCH for your willingness to help turn this dream into a reality we can continue to enjoy together. I truly could not have done it without the long hours you put in helping edit, constantly corresponding to e-mails, encouraging words, and enthusiasm to get us where we are today. Most importantly, I thank God every day for the many blessings he has bestowed upon me and my family and for the opportunity to take this step of faith.
I will end this post with lyrics from a song that I heard a couple weeks ago at church that really spoke to me about my future. Ever since I started this business in September 2007 I have tried, through all of my successes, to live out the verse Romans 11:36:“For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever.”
As I continue on this journey I will strive to always put Him first in my work and throughout life.
Jesus, my passion in life is to know You
May all other goals bow down to This journey of loving You more
Jesus, You’ve showered Your goodness on me
Given Your gifts so freely
But there’s one thing I’m longing for
Hear my heart’s cry
And my prayer for this life
Above all else
Above all else
ABOVE ALL ELSE
Give me Yourself
