Me - *looks curiously at bush* Rachel - “You want me to get in there don’t you..” Me - “I mean..I don’t NOT want you to get in there.” @rrachelmorriss was it worth it?? • • • #youcanalwaysputthechainsbackon #rebuke #lookslikefilm #yeahTHATgreenville #socality #postthepeople #untoldvisuals #visualscollective #adventurealways #hypebeast #createexploretakeover #peoplescreative #portraitmood #livefolk #ig_mood

Every day I grow to love this car a little more. I took a day last weekend and just drove around on dirt roads in the mountains. Got lost plenty of times, but eventually I had routed a pretty fantastic figure eight trail through the mountains in North Georgia. I’ll be back soon. 😉 • • • #lostintherightdirection #subaru #kinglouis #dirtroads #optoutside #getlost #mountains #georgia #offroad #trailride #youcanalwaysputthechainsbackon #rebuke #lookslikefilm #socality #untoldvisuals #visualscollective #adventurealways #hypebeast #createexploretakeover #peoplescreative #livefolk #ig_mood

“Move your hand..wait put it back. OKAY DON’T MOVE.” 😂 Thanks for being patient with me while I pretend to be a photographer. • • • #youcanalwaysputthechainsbackon #rebuke #lookslikefilm #yeahTHATgreenville #socality #postthepeople #untoldvisuals #visualscollective #adventurealways #hypebeast #createexploretakeover #peoplescreative #portraitmood #livefolk #ig_mood

Happy Bangs Blitz Day! Last week I took a little hike into this amazing flower patch that happened to also be yellow, like my Bangs. Looking forward to finding more of these little gems around Greenville.

Debated posting this last one simply because I’ve posted so many pics of myself recently, which I don’t usually like to do. // I’ve been trying to figure out why...I know part of it is because I LOVE featuring other people and, of course, the outdoors. // Another huge part of it is because I feel like if we use Instagram, a social media platform originally designed to promote photography in an accessible way, to just post pictures of ourselves that we didn’t take...what’s the point? You know? If it’s all photos of ourselves, it just feels like self promotion. I obviously can’t make that assumption about anyone, but I can say it feels that way sometimes. What are thoughts? (really, share them!) Anyway..I think yet another reason, and the one that’s bringing me conviction, is some kind of false humility that I’m realizing I’ve been walking in. I hesitate to speak up about things I feel I’m good at, or operate in gifts I know God has given me, or post picture of myself, simply because I fear people will think I’m tying to promote myself or raise myself up...once again, doesn’t that sound stupid? // I’m not going to operate in my strengths and be proud of the things God CREATED ME TO BE GOOD AT, because I fear man? Really? Come on, Timmy. // So..here’s the point. When you operate in your gifts in a way that glorifies the One who gave them to you, they should point people to the Father so evidently that you won’t have a choice but to surrender any credit you could take for yourself and give full credit to the Giver. // (speaking of credit...once again, thanks @middleriddle for the amazing photos) • • • #yeahTHATgreenville #socality #postthepeople #untoldvisuals #visualscollective #lookslikefilm #adventurealways #hypebeast #createexploretakeover #peoplescreative #portraitmood #livefolk #ig_mood

For months now I’ve been going through a process of allowing myself to be creative. // I’ve constantly struggled with comparison. I design something, then see something someone else did and immediately start comparing, wishing I could be that good. I constantly think to myself “what if people don’t actually like this?” Let me tell you something, folks; that language isn’t even in God’s vocabulary. On the contrary, He has constantly said things like, “hey..I like that. A lot.” //Shouldn’t that be what matters? If we’re doing our work unto the Lord, should we even be concerned what others think? When it comes to businesses, sure. What people think of THE WORK ITSELF obviously matters. But am I really going to let fear of man hold me back from tapping into potential that was designed IN ME since before Creation itself? That sounds so stupid when it’s said out loud...but it sounds pretty sane and reasonable when it’s a small, soft whisper from an enemy whose primary goal is to stop us from tapping into those intricate, beautiful pieces of His image that He so carefully embedded us at the very core of our being. • • • pc: @middleriddle #creative #design #yeahTHATgreenville #socality #postthepeople #untoldvisuals #visualscollective #lookslikefilm #adventurealways #hypebeast #createexploretakeover #peoplescreative #portraitmood #livefolk #ig_mood

Lately I’ve felt a little empty when it comes to Instagram. I’m currently pursuing social media consulting as a career choice, so I’m constantly testing things on my own account, while also keeping in mind that I need to brand myself as a service. That means I constantly pay attention to how posts are performing, what time I’m posting them, how much engagement they’re receiving, etc. Nothing wrong with keeping track of those things as long as I am not getting my identity through them, right? Right. However, I feel I haven’t been as real as I can be. Let me clarify.. I don’t mean to say I’ve been fake, but that I have a lot more to say that I haven’t been willing to share because I worry about being too “serious.” I’m full of passion and a desire for truth, and with that comes the desire to share that truth. So. From here on out I want to make it a priority to share my heart on my Instagram. Is self image more important than transparency? It better not be. That was a little jumbled, but in my defense it’s been a quite a bit since I’ve tried to type out my thoughts.. 😜
