It has been a few months since I first met Lori at the celebration dinner for the Launch of the You Matter App. We were first introduced by our good friend Doria, the founder of the You Matter App, and the rest is history. Flash forward to a few months after we met, Lori contacted me about updating her headshots for a book she will be releasing later this year. I was so excited about the opportunity to work with her and get to know her better. The funny thing is, that through months of planning, texts, and emails, we got to know one another better than we ever imagined.
On the day of Lori’s shoot, we met downtown, at Erie’s beautiful Bayfront. We had such a great time talking about life and enjoying the golden light while capturing Lori’s headshots but also we spoke about the topic at hand, her book. I’ll leave you all with a few words about her book and a few favorites from this Erie Bayfront session.
“The purpose of this book is to inspire individuals to bounce back! We all have found ourselves caught in so many “hallways of life”. But we cannot die in those hallways. It’s not always a physical death. Sometimes people die to hope, dreams, faith, courage, purpose, etc. But it’s awesome to know Christ died too. However, the purpose of his death was to restore where we have lost life. So the power of transition lets us clearly know we can avoid so many things and people in life. Yet, transition in itself isn’t one of those things. You don’t have a say so in that matter. But, you do have to choose. Choose to have faith, choose to develop courage choose to allow the hallway to develop your character so you can find your purpose and walk in power. All our lives have hallways, just don’t get stuck and not reach your destined place. Be your authentic you.”
