I'd like to introduce you to The Banks Bunch...and yes, this is MY family...these are my most favorite 3 guys in the WHOLE WORLD!!!
My husband, Kelly, has been soooo supportive through this crazy journey I started to take a year ago when I decided I wanted to pursue photography professionally...he has been my biggest supporter, my biggest fan...he's listened to me when I needed to vent and given me his shoulder to cry on when I felt like a failure...he has also given me the biggest hugs when I feel like celebrating and encouraged me when I really haven't done such a hot job...he's been my best friend for 7 years now and I'm so thankful I have him...and did I mention how handsome he is??...he's also an absolutely amazingly incredible father to our two boys Brendan & Corbin...
Brendan started Kindergarten this year and I can't even begin to tell you how proud I am of him! He's got such a sweetness about him---which sometimes goes head to head with his orneryness...but seriously, he is an amazing hugger, he's a happy, playful kiddo who loves his brother despite how much he picks on him...and the sweetest thing about my little B is that he always remembers to tell me that he loves me and that I look pretty.
Corbin is about to turn 4 and bless his little heart, he has my personality through and through...he is a happy little kiddo who loves to be with friends--he plays so well with others...but I tell you what, when he gets his feelings hurt, they get seriously hurt--he does not like to be picked on or teased--he's so serious it's rediculous...this little boy of ours has more rhythm in one little hiney cheek than some people possess in their entire body...he LOVES music, LOVES to sing, and LOVES to get down and boogie! It's been so much fun having time with little Corbs while Brendan has been away at school.
Don't worry, I'm included in some of the pictures...this will ease some of yall's minds who have been so curious to see what I look like now...but let me tell you that these pics are already a month old and I've already lost another 10 pounds...My current weight loss to date is 60 pounds!! Yahoo!!
My name is Candace & I began my photography journey when I was in high school...I found I couldn't seem to remember anything unless I had a picture of it...
My interest in photography grew more when I had kiddos--that was when I decided that my camera would never leave my side--b/c you just never know what you might catch on camera...("oooh, I haven't caught THAT expression on film yet..." or "wow, that's the 1st time he's stuck a pea up his nose!"..."wow, he just LOOKED at the dog poopy & didn't stick it in his mouth," etc--you catch my drift?).
But, to be honest with you, my very deep love for photography didn't truly come until after I had gone through some very difficult trials which brought me to the lowest of lows... and it was then that my sweet Heavenly Father rescued me and gave me a sweet, precious gift...the ability to see the others, not in the way the world sees them, but the way God sees them--beautifully created in His image...
"Every good and perfect gift is from above..." James 1:17
I plan on using my gift to be the hands and feet of Jesus...to glorify Him in all that I do... how do you plan on using your gifts?
