A happy coming to terms with my future career

Not even one whole year ago I was firmly established on the pre-med track, fully intending to become a physician of some sort.

God stopped me in my tracks via the influence of some good professors here at Baylor, and set me on the path for becoming a different kind of doctor.  The pieces had been falling together all along.  I loved learning, love learning, and will always love learning.  Immediately at Baylor I flourished intellectually in mulling over, discussing, and wrestling theological subjects.  I found a passion I never had for studying science.  I found fulfillment, I found myself. 

For the past two semesters (counting summer session as one of them) I have been absolutely on-board and excited about heading in the direction of a Ph.D.  But something changed in my in the past few weeks:  I've made theology mine.

Now let me articulate what I mean by this.  Rather than seeing theology as my future discipline, I see it as my present and continuing discipline.  I no longer see myself as somebody who is going to be a theologian, but somebody who already is a theologian.  For the first time, in conversation, I called theology “my discipline.”

I find that exciting.  I am owning it!  

And it only took me eleven months to get here!

Hannah & Sam were married at the end of January at the loelvy Woodcreek Church in Richardson followed by a fabulous wedding reception at the Swingin' D Ranch in Parker, Texas. The couple chose to do a first look before the wedding and it was a sweet and special moment for them in rejoice in one another and to marvel in how fabulous they both looked.We photographed their couple portraits in the beautiful afternoon winter light and then grabbed their bridal party to finish portraits around the church. Their wedding ceremony was a sweet time of commitment and they finished the service with a time of prayer with their closest family and friends. After the service, I ran over to photograph all of the beautiful and fun wedding reception details Hannah & Sam planned for their reception at the Swingin' D Ranch. Upon arrival, they had a coffee bar and popcorn bar for their guests to enjoy until they opened the reception space. Inside the reception space, they had beautiful vibrant rustic details on the tables with wood crates and jars of beautiful floral arrangements. They had a fabulous cupcake table with a variety of unique flavors as the bride's cake and then they had a custom-made rice krispy grooms cake that was crafted by the groom's sister. The reception was a blast with a variety of music to keep the party going.I hope you enjoy viewing Hannah & Sam's wedding pictures.
