For as long as I can remember I have LOVED photography! I was (and still am) the person that ALWAYS wants to take pictures. I find such joy and beauty in capturing moments. It’s a creative outlet for me to take pictures. &As much as I love being in front of the camera I equally adore being behind it. I am at the point in my life where I have decided to start to make a business out of my passions. I have started styling people, I love to make people feel beautiful and comfortable in their own skin. It gives me an immense amount of happiness to see someone shine and feel beautiful. As the years have gone by I have, weirdly, become good at makeup! As a result of that my friends have asked me to do their makeup for one of the most important days of their lives, their wedding day! Nerve wracking to say the least but I love that they have the confidence in me. So that leads me to this post.🖤📸 Yesterday, I spent the day taking some beautiful shots of my friend @paigeweinberg . I took the pics, styled the shoot, edited the pics, did her hair, her makeup and helped her see her beauty! It was amazing. I will be sharing some of the pics here as well as my blog ‘The Lex Factor’(link in bio)! I will let you know when the blog post is live! Xx

“I ask you to choose greatness”-President Donald J Trump. My thoughts on the SOTU.🇺🇸 I found the State of the Union so unifying and powerful tonight. President Trump delivered such a great speech. So many moving moments. The bipartisan USA chant was POWERFUL. That will go down in history. I felt unity tonight and healing. & loved that everyone sang happy birthday to a holocaust survivor, what a cool moment. Proud to be an American and a Trump supporter. Feeling inspired and excited for America. Love seeing all that has been accomplished in these 2 years. What were your thoughts? What did you like or dislike? Share with me below👇🏻❤️💙 (Please be respectful)

Money doesn’t buy happiness.💵 >yesterday my friends and I spent the day at an extremely nice house, EVERYTHING you could even imagine, this house had it. It was unreal and we had a blast! As we left the house to go get some dinner we started talking about how wealthy you have to be to get to that level, what it takes to get there and is it worth it? You might think we are nuts to even think that because who doesn’t want everything they could imagine and enough money to last forever? But the reality is money doesn’t buy happiness and it can be a very sad and lonely place to have “everything”. More often than not you have to give up your life and freedom to get there. This isn’t a blanket statement and I know very grounded wealthy people but when my friend shared he was happier when he was making less because he had more freedom to live his life, it really got me thinking. So think about that the next time you are wishing you had someone else’s life, what did they have to give up to get there. We all have had to make choices and sacrifices to get where we are. Xx

Let’s get deep. A few days ago I received a dm from someone asking me to share a story of God’s goodness in my life. I wanted to share, because the Lord has shown me so much goodness in my life, but I couldn’t think of many specific stories. I decided to think on it for a bit before replying. Fast forward to last night. I was scrolling through instagram and ended up on some celebrity pages, per usual, but what was strange is I had an intense feeling of darkness. I have always had a gift of discernment but I can honestly say I have never felt this feeling before. I have always had a draw to that glamorous lifestyle but last night I wanted nothing to do with it and felt a feeling I had never felt. That entire world felt so dark to me. I saw instagram in a completely different way then I normally do. I immediately went to my page to see if I still felt and saw darkness, but I didn’t, I saw complete light. In that moment I had an overwhelming feeling of God’s goodness in my life, what He has saved me from and the life He has given me. I looked at my life and thought, “WOW”. This is all I want in life, LIGHT. Today I was meditating on that feeling from last night and that dm popped into my head, I smiled and thought to myself THIS is God showing me a small snippet of His goodness in my life and what He has protected me from. I obviously, still like instagram and like that glamorous lifestyle but I truly feel like my perspective has infinitely changed. I feel blessed to be where I am in my life because I know that I am being protected from things that would harm me. I wanted to share this with you guys as a testament to where you are in your life, YOU ARE THERE FOR A REASON! Embrace it and look for God’s goodness. Xx
