Oh friends. It is a sweet, amazing, tear-filled, happy dance, OMG kind of day for my dear friend Emily Ley. You might know her because of The Simplified Planner but today, she is officially a published AUTHOR and her book, Grace Not Perfection, is available nationwide! WHAT!
It was so amazing to work with Em and her Harper Collins/Thomas Nelson publisher teams on this shoot. Never before had they tried a lifestyle photography attempt at commercial book imagery and we had so much fun bringing the heart behind this book to life! I remember Emily saying “It’s for all women; not just young women, or married women, or women who are balancing a million things. What about the women who wish they were married or who long to have many things to manage? This is for them too”.
I know that many will be blessed by this book and Em’s desire to spur women closer to live’s that are full with things that matter. So much freedom, I know I need it! Good thing my copy arrives this week!
To learn more about the book and see these images in action (I love seeing commercial work come to life in the hands of big, beautiful companies!!), please visit:
