My Heart Behind Kelby Maria

Today I want to share with you the heart and why behind my business… And that is to serve.

My clients are not just customers to me, we become friends. And because they are my friends I want to serve them with all my heart. Taking care of them, to very best of my ability. Photography is a tool of service in which I am able to bless others by capturing in a frame, a photograph, that represents a piece of that person.

A week ago, my family and I were at a picnic where a past bride was there as well as her mother’s family. I was talking with the mother of the bride when she mentioned the photographs and tears came to her eyes. And I knew then that my mission was accomplished. She had been served well.

There are so many things in the world grabbing for attention…social media, television, radio, all the way down to the billboards on the highways trying to reel people in. But if they were just trying to serve, I believe it would make a world difference.

It's an easy treat to make and it can be served on its own with something warm to drink, or topped with creamy vanilla ice cream...or if you're like me, both!
