Welcome to the first blog post for Anchored Fine Art and Photography! It’s been a long time coming, but, I finally got enough courage to sit here and write these words. First things first, my name is Lindsey Hogan and I love to create. I am an artist by nature. When I was a child I carried a bag of art supplies with me almost everywhere I went. Today, I still paint (mostly in acrylics) and in the past 6 years have adopted photography as my own. I’ve grown to love photography as much as painting and have passed the love to my husband, Buck. He has gotten so good, he’s now a second shooter here at Anchored for weddings and large events. I love working with him so much! He’s really my better half. 😉
Anyways, back to why I’m here…
For so long, being an artist for a living was a far away dream and it seemed totally unrealistic by the worlds standards. The fear of failure and of what other people would think held me back from fully pursuing my dream(s). I wondered, ‘What will they think?’ ‘Am I good enough?’ ‘Could God even use me?’ ‘Will I fail?’. So, that’s why I’m here. I have a dream that I want to see fulfilled and I’m going to kick fear in the face to do so. These blog posts will soon be filled with stories from our life, photo shoots, and paintings. I hope you will keep coming back to see what Abba God is doing through this adventure. Let’s kick fear in the face together! By the way, here’s one of my favorite scriptures that has helped me to overcome fear.
‘For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.’
2 Timothy 1:7
Realizing that fear is not from God has been a constant for me. I have been given power, love and self-disciple! Wow. God’s grace astounds me every.single.time!
Thank you for stopping by. In the next week or so, expect another blog post where you will get to know us a little more.
