Exciting Announcement | 2013

I’m so excited to finally be able to tell everyone my big news! J Most people know I’m horrible at keeping secrets, especially when they’re super exciting. I have been busting at the seams to tell everyone but I wanted to do it in an official and organized manner. Anyways, I’ve kept you in suspense long enough. The big new is………

Moments of Grace Photography is going FULL TIME starting September 1!!!!!! EEEK!!!

I will be serving the areas of Wichita and South East, Kansas. I’ve had several different 
emotions running through me, as I’ve been trying to make the decision on whether to take this big leap. I’ve felt nervous, scared, anxious but most of all EXCITED!! I know some people might have thought I was crazy when I told them (like I said, I’m horrible at keeping secrets.) J I’m pretty sure my husband was one of them, however; he’s an amazing and supportive man. He makes me think things through and helps me stay somewhat level headed.

I have dreamed of being a photographer since I was a little girl, I remember telling people that’s what I wanted to be when I grew up. Nevertheless, someone must have told me that it wasn’t a very “practical” dream. Fast forward to today and I’m making that dream come true.  I feel empowered and ready to see what God has in store for me. No matter what I’m photographing, it’s all because of God’s loving hand and I want to document this for everyone to enjoy. I personally know the importance of capturing those special moments with your loved ones, having lost my mother at a young age the pictures of my mother are the only things I really have left of her besides my memories which sadly fade over time.

I've lost more than a little sleep lately thinking about what to write in order to give you an insight to my decision to go full time. It may be slightly crazy and I know that the journey ahead of me is going to be a long and tough one, but I also know that it will be worth it! Although I am fully prepared to put in the time and energy necessary to make this transition a success, I cannot do this alone. Above all I will rely on God’s guidance and grace as I move forward with my photography career, but I will also need you guys to help me through this journey. You can help by lifting me up in your prayers, referring Moments of Grace to your friends, or sending me words of encouragement. I’m abundantly thankful for all those in my life that are supporting and encouraging me to purse my dream. Thank you to those that have challenged me to be a better photographer and friend. My number one goal for Moments of Grace is to glorify God in any way I can.  That can range from capturing the special moments of a bride & groom confessing their vows to each other or a mother & father’s loving arms around their beloved children. It could even be as simple as photographing the smile of a rambunctious toddler. I’m excited to discover new friendships with future clients and strengthening the bonds I have with those I have already photographed. I look forward to sharing laughs, smiles and even tears together. J I can’t express in words how grateful I am for all the amazing people God has placed in my life and will continue to introduce me to. 
Thanks again for reading this long and emotional post.
In God’s Love,

 Joee Seibel
