Thought For The Day...{Amy Beckley Photography} I saw this quote today and it really inspired me to live this out! "At the end of the day I don't want life to be about what I accomplished...I want it to be about what God accomplished in ME.! I am a notorious list maker. I have colored notepads all over the house as well as colored pens and pencils to make my "lists". I'm even so serious about my lists that my kids know not to write anything on them because I only want my handwriting on them. I'll even rewrite them if I'm not happy with how they look. I make my grocery lists by the layout of the store and add * beside things on sale and things that I have coupons for...Crazy I know! I have TO DO lists for the upcoming week and I have lists for things that need to be accomplished by the end of the month and even the year! Robbie and I even walked around the whole house last week and compiled a 6 PAGE list of things that need to be fixed or updated around the house. BUT This is not what God wants of me! He doesn't look at me at the end of the day and say "Good job Amy, you got so much accomplished today. You scrubbed the toilets, caught up on all the laundry, went grocery shopping, took the kids to school and picked them up, made an incredible, healthy meal, completed your work on the computer and worked your part-time job." While I know he cares about that stuff. He does say to "run with perseverance the race marked out for us." (and for now this is my race) but He goes on to say "Fix your eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of out faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning it's shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12:1-2. Yes, we are to "run our race" but not to the detriment of our primary purpose. I am a MOM! I have many responsibilities but at the end of the day, I want to know that I loved my children, that I cared for them and they went to bed knowing how special they are to me. That I disciplined them and taught them either by my actions or my words how to live a Godly life. I want my husband to know that he is appreciated and loved. I want everyone that I encountered that day to be able to say that they didn't see just me that day, but that they saw the goodness of God in me. That I smiled and offered a kind word. That everything that came out of my mouth was positive and pleasing. That I went about my work wholeheartedly and with purpose. I am to "fix my eyes on Jesus." If I do that God's work will be accomplished in me! So...
Additional Spring Mini Sessions are booking NOW! I've been waiting for my daughter's Softball schedule to be posted so I could add some Mini Session dates to my calender. I will be offering 2 more Mini Session dates. I've decided to try two different packages this time. I've never offered a digital package before and I'm interested in how many of my clients may have a desire for this. The Print Package: $150 will include 5 Gift Prints (8x10 or smaller), 1 Wall Portrait (16x20 or 11x14) and 25% off additional print orders. ($300 Value) The Digital Package: $300 will include High-Resolution Digital Files with Full Copyright Release for Prints. $100 is required to book your time slot. This fee MUST be paid within 5 days of booking to reserve your spot. No exceptions. The remainder must be paid at or before the session. A week after your session, you will be directed to a private, online gallery of your images. All orders must be placed within 10 days of your session posting. April 6th on the Natchez Trace: 1:30-5:00. There are two time slots to choose from. I recommend the 40 Minute Sessions for families. This location is beautiful this time of the year and is perfect for smaller children and families. 1:30 (20 Minute Session) 2:00 (20 Minute Session) 2:30 (20 Minute Session) 3:00 (40 Minute Session) 3:45 (20 Minute Session) 4:15 (40 Minute Session) 5:00 (40 Minute Session) May 5th at The Quarter on Lakeland Drive. These will be 20 minute sessions only. This location is perfect for older children and young teens as well as families. It's more of an Urban setting with beautiful brick and ironwork...very New Orleans! 1:00 1:30 2:00 2:30 3:00 3:30 4:00 4:30 I will keep this post at the top of my blog and I will update when sessions slots are filled.
