Hi I'm Megan

I'm a wife, mother, photographer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I are just beginning our family - we have one little girl and and another baby on the way. My family makes me happier than anything, and, because of that, the gospel is more important to me than anything. I want to keep my family forever! I am a photographer and am currently transitioning from photographing weddings to photographing newborns. I love the creative process that is involved with photography! I have lived in three different states and my husband and I are excited to add many more to our list. We love travel and learning about the different cultures around the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a home where the gospel of Jesus Christ was central, but I didn't gain a sure testimony of it until I was older and had left home for college. I was at a cross-road in my life and I had to rely heavily on my Savior for comfort, direction and peace. I felt his love and his strength as never before in my life. Going to church and partaking deeply of all this gospel has to offer was the only source of solace I had and it made me realize how very much I am grateful for it. A few years later I was married and had just welcomed my first child into our family. Only a few weeks after her birth, my husband and I received the news that my daughter has Cystic Fibrosis. The thought of outliving my child due to a disease was heartbreaking and we spent the next few weeks praying, crying and praying some more. Again, I was able to feel my Savior's loving arms around me, comforting me and lifting me. I knew that her disease would not go away, but I also knew that everything would be okay. I am so very grateful for that peace and I cannot imagine my life without it.

How I live my faith

I was recently called as the president of the group of teenage girls in my ward. I have had the opportunity to leave my comfort zone as I learn to lead and guide them and as I learn how to keep things organized. I can see myself growing as an individual and I love that we get these types of opportunities in this church. I am also learning to love the girls that I work with and serve - they are teaching me and I am happy to have the opportunity to get to know them. I also have the opportunity to get to know several women in my ward by visiting them in their homes each month. I have made friendships and learned many things that I otherwise would not have had I not had this opportunity. This is a church filled with opportunities to serve, but through that service comes so many opportunities to learn, grow, and become a more well-rounded person. I am grateful for all the opportunities that have come my way through being a member of this church!
