Humbled & Inspired.

One of my goals for 2011 is to find and follow websites/blogs of successful Christian businesswomen, especially photographers, to challenge and inspire me as I begin to pursue my own business. Yesterday I came across Natalie Norton's blog, and MAN. I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY.


Not only is her photography simply breathtaking, but the way she communicates her love for the Lord is so genuine. It touches the deepest place of your heart, like it really is the Lord speaking through her. I couldn't read any of her recent blog posts without wanting to weep uncontrollably. Seriously. This week is the one-year anniversary of the death of her then 8-week old baby boy, Gavin. I simply can't imagine the grief. As I read her story about the tragic loss of baby Gavin, in the midst of her pain, her faith never wavered. In fact, it only became stronger. Lord, may I have that kind of faith when faced with the tough circumstances of this life! I know it was a God thing I found Natalie's blog, she is an inspiration, an answer to prayer, and someone I would love to have photograph my family one day (but she lives in Hawaii...hmm? We'll just have to visit!).

Check out Natalie's blog here and be encouraged!


  1. I was looking at her blog and read her amazing story as well as looked at some of her work. Did you realize she was the photographer for Christ Tomlin's wedding?

  2. No, I didn't realize that! I'll have to go back and find their wedding photos. Now I like her even more!
