I had a lovely one night camping trip this weekend it was just a very needed get away! It rain pretty much the whole time, but it was still very relaxing. I also was able to have a wonderful time in the Word and one verse just really popped out. So I want to share it with you... Ephesians 3:20 "Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us."

I just loved that verse...because its so obvious how big God is yet He is bigger and greater than we can even begin to fathom....that is just amazing.

Beauty, Surrounds Us.

Saturday was just one of those days where you need to go get some fresh air. So I journeyed up the Sandia's originally heading towards the crest but decided to take a few detours along the way. It was a blast to just marvel at the beauty of God's creation, and it is just amazing how GREEN New Mexico is! We've gotten so much rain and it just sooo wonderful to see everything soo ripe and colorful!

...also it was a wonderful sunset that evening.

And as a friend pointed out walking back from watching the sunset the moon was just lovely...what a wonderful day! I just absolutely love standing in awe in the Lord's creation.

What's in a Name....

Searching for the Light first began while I, the photographer Emmy, began shooting with my Nikon Coolpix point-and-shoot during my first year away from home in college. I was utterly fascinated with capturing and recording the memories of my life away from home in innovative and interesting ways. I began looking at things from different angles: going on my knees and under things just to see how different it looked upside down, or from either side. I also found myself always trying to get the sun within my pictures; whether it was making the object I was photographing a silhouette or placing subjects in just the right spot for a beautiful sunburst to appear within the picture. After a period of time I came up with the name Searching for the Light, because I was always searching for new ways to capture a subject and trying to incorporate the sun within my photos. As time progressed I realized this wasn’t always possible to capture the sun within all my photos so I then resolved to look for the best lighting. Although this is all the literal meanings, there too is a deeper meaning to the name Searching for the Light. As I’m sure you will come to find as you work with me, I believe that this world was neither happenstance nor a combination of particles randomly coming together but rather created by an amazing purposeful God. I believe He created it all just for us, to live in, to rejoice in, and to enjoy. Using photography as my point to share my faith in our Creator, I like to say that I’m searching for the actual Light: Christ. “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” John 1:4-5. I want to share and show the world the beauty He created by searching for God in people, in creation, in anything and then reflecting that within a photograph. I pray daily that my photography isn’t just a business but a means to capture and share beauty beyond our comprehension.

Here are some photos from the year I first began, away from home.
