Why creatyd?

“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”It’s the verse that can be found in Genesis 1:27. But let’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 doesn’t blow you over like the Iowa wind, I don’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 it’s a by-product of what I do – I want to record and document God’s creation. And its everywhere. It’s in the face of a bride and in the stillness of a room before she enters. It’s in the wind that blows through the grass as a child dances and laughs in it. And it’s always in the love we share in any relationship.

So when people ask, “So, what do you do?”I hope I will always answer…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.
