"I will lift my eyes to the Maker
Of the mountains I can't climb
I will lift my eyes to you."

I have been studying Philippians for the last few months, and there is this one verse that has just encouraged me time and time again.

"Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own."
chapter 3 verse 12

God is using this verse in basically every area of my life, including photography. It is so easy for me to see where I am failing, where I am not good enough, and where "everybody" is doing better than me. And I love when God just "wow's" with me with His words.
It's not about me.
It's not about me "obtaining" perfect photographer business-women-ness. It's not about me being a "perfect" photographer. God has blessed me with this job that I adore. He knows me so well! He knows how much I love my work! He knows how hard some parts are for me. He knows where I am doing well, and where I am falling short. And He will never, ever leave my side. I can press on because at my side there is a loving Father who calls me child.

Happily, I can truly say that my job is much, much more a joy and love then a struggle. As my business is growing and getting bigger, there are going to be some changes coming soon.... sit tight and you can look forward to a newer and more improved Kristen Leigh Photography very soon!


  1. He's Perfection, our job is just to do our best and strive for excellence. And then let him perfectly guide us and shepherd us. He is SO GOOD! And he has given you a special and beautiful talent. You are a great photographer and I am always so impressed how I see your heart through your work. Keep on Sister! :)

  2. Blessed insight. In the end it's all about whether or not you have the Son. God is so kind to us, and it is the kindness of God that leads us to repentance. I'm excited to see the new KL!

  3. Hmmm, new website coming maybe? hehe... awesome post Kristen! You are blessed. Looking forward to next week and shooting with you!
