â€œSo God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.â€Itâ€™s the verse that can be found in Genesis 1:27. But letâ€™s think about this for a second. We are created in the image of God. Do we know what that means? That means we actually resemble or look like God. Now if that doesnâ€™t blow you over like the Iowa wind, I donâ€™t know what does. And that is where the name Creatyd came from. Because my goal in this calling in life is not just to photograph pretty things, although itâ€™s a by-product of what I do – I want to record and document Godâ€™s creation. And its everywhere. Itâ€™s in the face of a bride and in the stillness of a room before she enters. Itâ€™s in the wind that blows through the grass as a child dances and laughs in it. And itâ€™s always in the love we share in any relationship.
So when people ask, â€œSo, what do you do?â€I hope I will always answerâ€¦I get to photograph Jesus! And when people see my work, my prayer is they will see past the pretty things and actually see glimpses of the face of God.
