What is our Exciting News you ask?
Well, to give you the whole picture we'd have to tell you the whole story & the story is a bit long. But, it is a story full of fun details, obvious signs of God's handy work & bounding with hope for the future.
I am so excited to tell the story, but it's not a story I can to tell all at once in 1 blog post.
I do photography. NOT writing or story telling. :)
In the beginning... ;~)
A long, long time ago. Not far from here. Not some distant land or far off place in a fairy tale, but... GET TO THE POINT! Sorry :)
You ever had someone give you a gift that to you was beyond what you could've expected or imagined? A sort of dream come true or something that only happens in day dreams right before you rear-end the car in front of you because you where so lost in the dream.
Did you take that gift & put it in a closet never to be used again & forgotten? No, probably not.
Well in our exciting news, we have been given a gift. A gift we DO NOT plan on shoving into a closet, but instead using & growing to honor the giver & pursue our passion. So, what's the bloody gift or the exciting news you ask (frustratedly)?
The Dehnerts are making the transition into full time professional photography!
What? That is totally AWESOME you say! Well, we agree. :)
A little over 1 year ago I was asked by a friend Sharon Hinman, who is THE photographer in Enumclaw. Sharon ask me to photograph a wedding/vow renewal for her since she had stopped doing weddings & happen to be gone at this particular time anyways. I of course said yes that would be sweet. And, I'd love to help her out. So, (trying not to make this story to long remember I'm not a story teller or writer) once I finished editing the images, I brought them to her for delivery. While we where talking she does the unthinkable. She steps into my day dream & makes it a reality! :~O
Sharon says something like this. "So, I am pretty sure I will be retiring from photography within the next year & moving to the Seattle area. Depending on some circumstances we may not move to Seattle, but either way I'm DONE with photography. Would you be interested in coming in & taking over my business? I will teach you, mentor you & introduce you to all my customers/clients so you can take off where I will be stopping. All you'd need to do is come to my jobs, help in the editing & processing, watch & learn. I don't want to charge you for the business. I just want to give it to you & give you the opportunity to take over for me. Whatcha think?"
I say something like this. DAAAAAAA. What's up doc?
Well the story get's much, much better! And since I'm not a writer I'll end here & pick up again next week with more info. :) Look for the next blog around Saturday Sept. 3rd.
Till then may our God bless you & His everlasting love shine over you!
