Ã¢â‚¬Å“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.Ã¢â‚¬ÂItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the verse that can be found in Genesis 1:27. But letÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t blow you over like the Iowa wind, I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a by-product of what I do – I want to record and document GodÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s creation. And its everywhere. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s in the face of a bride and in the stillness of a room before she enters. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s in the wind that blows through the grass as a child dances and laughs in it. And itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s always in the love we share in any relationship.
So when people ask, Ã¢â‚¬Å“So, what do you do?Ã¢â‚¬ÂI hope I will always answerÃ¢â‚¬Â¦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.
