PHOTOGRAPHY DO'S & DON'TS BLOG SERIES || PART 1 of 3

Hi Girls!

A couple of weeks ago we had a WONDERFUL time at the Peter’s home for our Girls Photo Shoot. Ami and Alison Photography came and captured gorgeous headshots of each of the girls! If you were at the photo shoot and have not received instructions on how to get your pictures, then please e-mail me as soon as possible. If you want to see more fun group shots from the event then >> click here <<. Since everyone was so cute and dressed up we had a "tea party" style lunch and then all gathered for a talk on the do’s and don’ts of photo taking and photo sharing (online and through text).

It is my hope to recap that lesson here for you through a series of three blog posts. I hope that you will not only use this as a tool for discernment on what you should share online, but also as a resource when sharing your heart on this matter with your friends. We must rally around this together in order to see change and bring God glory in this area!

Today, I want to discuss why we need to be mindful of how our pictures look and what we share with others. In the next post I will walk through a list of questions to ask before you even take a picture or post a picture. The final post in this series will wrap everything up by asking the question, “How hot is too hott?” I hope you will check out each one!

As you know, our purpose as God’s creation (and the heartbeat of this ministry) is to glorify God first and foremost and in all things. 1 Peter 4:11 says:

“If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.”

Sometimes we can forget that “in all things” actually means ALL things. Glorifying Him in church and in service projects seems like a no brainer. We’ve also talked about honoring Him with your clothing choices, with boys, and how you treat others…but do you think to glorify Christ in your every day tasks like texting, facebook, and through your photo albums?

Check back on Monday for some practical ways in which you can seek to glorify God in theses areas.
