This is hands down the part that I want to run away from, shut my eyes and blink it out of existence... and I'm not just talking about the house here. I'm talking about the whole darn world around me at this very moment. Now let me tell you something about me. I'm afraid - I am, in my flesh,  a fearful person. I fear germs. I fear sickness. I fear a world that's acting like it's coming off it's hinges. I fear houses that are halfway torn apart and look seemingly impossible to put back together. I fear an economy that looks like it's all going to fall apart and I may never have the money needed to put this broken little house back together. So yeah, fear has been putting in some serious overtime. And let me tell you something else.. I've been looking in all the wrong places.. placing my hope in all the wrong things. You see I've gotten so wrapped up in this house and the way I imagine it should all come together... I've become so wrapped up in the world around me falling apart.. that I've taken my eyes off of the One in whom I say I believe. I've taken my eyes off of  the One who calms the wind and waves and makes my heart be still.  I've taken my eyes off of the One who holds ALL things in His hands.  So what am I left to do when everything around me appears to be in shambles... when it all looks like it's falling apart? As a woman who professes to believe with all her heart, mind, and soul in a Holy and sovereign God... as a woman who claims she trusts that she is safe under His wings no matter what may come... I have a choice. I have a choice to continue to look on at the panic and fear all around.. the headlines, empty toilet paper shelves, a messed up economy and a crumbling down mess of a house... or I can choose to redirect my gaze back to the only One on which it belongs... trusting that He works all things for good. Trusting that even in the darkest, scariest, most rubble filled, shambled places that He will sustain me. Because He is enough.

 

You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, for in YAH, the Lord, is ever-lasting strength.

Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you. He has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; nor has He hidden His face from Him; But when He cried to Him, He heard. Is anyone among you suffering Let him pray.

Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Do not be unbelieving, but believing. Lo, I am with you always.

Out With the Old... {our green acres life part 2} https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2020/1/out-with-the-old-our-green-acres-life-part-2  Tearing down all that's old. Making a way for everything new...

It's exciting to see the walls come down, the drop ceilings gone, the staircase opened up and all the light this little house has to offer.. yet it's so daunting knowing how much work is yet to be done. It's only just begun. Here's to the beginning of #ourgreenacreslife

A New Beginning... {our green acres life part 1} https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2019/12/a-new-beginning-this-old-house-part-one  

renew:

*to make like new: restore to freshness, vigor or perfection

*to make new spiritually: regenerate

*to restore to existence: revive

*to make extensive changes in: rebuild

 

 

All things new...

Welcome to a new beginning.  This broken down, neglected, 1930's farmhouse that is soon to become our forever home is about to be rebuilt and revived. On December 13 we woke early in the morning and drove 3 hours to small real estate office in a small town where we signed a stack of paperwork and were handed the keys to this decrepit little house that we will, over the next year, hopefully and prayerfully make new again.

For a couple of dreamers and over-thinkers, we have spent the last several years mulling over ideas, praying halfhearted prayers and talking ourselves in circles. Not sure how to make any of it happen...we have overthought ourselves out of every plan that we could imagine.

But here we finally are.. stepping into a new year, stepping into an unknown future, stepping out farther in faith... as we uproot our lives alongside the uprooting of crumbling plaster and peeling 70s paneling. Relying on God to carry us into this new beginning, in the form of a forgotten farmhouse on 20 acres of overgrown land, full of potential and hope. Just as God looks to transform our brokenness, he has afforded us with the opportunity to do the same for this broken little home; Asking us to see past the falling drop ceiling and the fact that the house would fit into our current place three times over, so that we might breathe new life into it and so that we may learn to lean on him through each step of this undoubtedly trying undertaking ahead of us.

 

I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.” Psalm 91:2

What May Looked Like... {The gardening life} https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2019/6/what-may-looked-like-the-gardening-life May looked a lot like this over here in our backyard this year... Filling the window boxes with overpriced daisies, filling the dirt with seeds saved from last years harvest, filling the herb garden with all my favorite flavors, but mostly... filling my heart with allll the simple goodness this life can give. It's truly the simple things in life that bring the most joy into my life... and I couldn't be more grateful. I keep telling him we are going to make the very best 80 year olds one day... just give us all the mornings filled with coffee on the porch, birds eating out of our feeders and dirt on our feet.

"Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created."

March on Film ~ Waiting for a New Season {Film Friday} https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2018/4/march-on-film-waiting-for-a-new-season-film-friday It's Friday, April 13 and there is a storm looming in the forecast. Snow... AGAIN. The Three year old inside of me wants to throw a wee bit of a fit.. stomp my feet in protest and demand warmth and sunshine. Apparently the weather doesn't work that way. Seasons... they come and go at their own leisure and sometimes they hang around a little too long. The seasons in our lives can be much the same.. The 40ish year old woman in me knows this very well. Sometimes we get stuck in a certain pattern or certain place... wishing and hoping for it to pass or maybe we are in a season where NOTHING seems to be happening and we just want to see some dang results .. when in reality it's not quite the right time. And you know what I've learned? That no amount of foot stomping is going to hurry it along. And you know what else I've learned? That I'm not the one in control. I'm so glad for that... because let's be real.. Most days I'm not getting it right. But GOD. He knows. And he ALWAYS gets it right. So when the season your in has worn out its welcome...just be still. Fix your eyes on HIM. REST. Growth is happening in the waiting. Things are being made new. Trust in HIM because he knows.. and His timing is perfect. Always.

Quietly... { A Personal Post } https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2017/12/quietly-a-personal-post Suppose We did our work like the snow,

quietly, quietly, leaving nothing out.  ~Wendell Berry~

 

Search me O God and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! and see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting! Psalm 139:23-24

This Psalm has been the prayer of my heart for the last year and let me assure you our God is faithful.

So it is again that I find myself here in this month of December.. at the end of another blessing of a year.  And I've got work to do. The learning kind.. the soul searching, digging deep, sometimes it's ugly and you don't want to see what you find kind of work. Am I really here again? in this same place that I was last year? It seems the discovery is never ending. It's nothing short of amazing how as another year passes God opens my eyes revealing to me a little bit more than he did the year before... pulling back the curtain to shine his light on what's really there hiding in the dark. It's a tangled up mess there in the dark corners of my heart and even though it's hard and certainly not pretty.. I am filled with hope and Joy knowing that what God is working out in and through me will be for my good and all to His Glory. And so here I sit at the beginning of December... the last month of the year, preparing my heart and mind for some deep soul digging and change making. And so it goes.. in order to actually attempt this again I'm choosing to clear out some clutter and unplug from the distractions of social media until January.. when things are fresh and new... like the snow that falls and does its work quietly, quietly, leaving nothing out.

Handsome George + His Beautiful Mama = So Much Love {Wisconsin Motherhood Photographer} https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2017/7/handsome-george-his-beautiful-mama-so-much-love-wisconsin-motherhood-photographer There are moments throughout our days to be remembered and treasured for our lifetime and into our children's lifetime.. memories we hopefully never lose sight of - his small hands hugging your face - his cheeky laughter and delight as you ran chasing after him into the sun.. and the love he returned when you caught him in those safe, loving arms. Mama, I hope you hold onto these special bits of time and never forget these precious days. I hope these moments captured will be a gift to the both of you for years and years to come.

Thank you for getting in front of my camera and loving your handsome little man like only you can!

I love this quote so much and I believe it to be so true. It's easy for us to put up walls..to be quiet.. to hold back or to try to be something we aren't. But when we can learn to be comfortable in our skin.. to let our true self shine.. that's when the magic happens. Thank you Camryn for trusting me to capture your beauty. You are amazing!

Three Cuties... { Menomonie, WI Children's Photographer } https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2017/3/three-cuties-menomonie-wi-childrens-photographer It's been a busy couple of months around here... filled with beautiful little people and I love it!  Would you believe I used to dread doing indoor photos?? Yep, it drove me crazy! I felt so confined and limited and then it dawned on me.. I needed to strip it way back, cut out the clutter and props. That's when I found a groove with my Simple Sessions and I couldn't be happier! Simple Sessions are great for children of any age. These sessions showcase each child's individuality and personality.. But what I love most about these Simple Sessions is their timeless quality. By cutting out all of the "extra stuff" I am able to spend more time chatting and goofing around with your kids and I've found that to be the best way to capture relaxed, authentic portraits and genuine expressions.

Just look at these three cuties...

They were so much fun to spend time with and capture their vibrant personalities!

Sisters ~ Sweet and Simple { Menomonie, WI Children's Photographer } https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2017/3/sisters-sweet-and-simple-menomonie-wi-childrens-photographer

Definition of simple

  1.   free from guile :  innocent

  2.   free from vanity :  modest :  free from ostentation or display

  3.  of humble origin or modest position

  4.   free from elaboration or figuration simple harmony

 

I call these sessions ~ Simple Sessions ~  because that is just what they are. Simple. Capturing your child simply for who they are.. no props, no fuss, no expectations.. just them.. their essence, their innocence, their wildness in all it's imperfectly perfect-ness...

 

(There is still time to book your ~Simple Session~ for the month of March for a special price!  Contact me to schedule your session!)

Ob La Di Ob La Da... { Film Friday } https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2017/2/ob-la-di-ob-la-da-film-friday I sit here looking out the window ever so grateful that the sun is shining through,  wondering how I can sum up the last two months. December was decent but not as awesome as I hoped it would be. It was calm and quite for the most part. My intention of unplugging from "all things internet" for the month was only partly successful. While I managed to stay off of social media.. Amazon and google were a different story. Do you now how hard it is to not shop on Amazon over the holidays?? It was hard.. so hard I broke and shopped away. I read some new books and re-read some old favorites. I didn't pick up my camera once.. not one time during December.. I thought I would have.. but I didn't. Let's blame it on the lack of light.. I feel like it's been a dark, dreary last couple of months... and I don't do well with dark and dreary unless there's a thunderstorm.  We had to put our beloved kitty down the day before Christmas Eve. Her little heart failed her. We only had that kitty for a little more than one year.. and in that year her bold personality brought us more joy than I could have imagined. We miss her.

If I could get a do-over on January... I guess I wouldn't so let's just get through it. January was not awesome in any way. I usually love the fresh start to a new year and all of the hope and promise it brings. My birthday is in the middle of month and this year I turned 40. I usually don't make a big deal over getting another year older but this year.. I was ready to embrace it with a good attitude. except...that didn't happen. I spent the 2 weeks surrounding my birthday in bed.. sicker than sick. Not how I imagined it! But guess what? I'm still 40.. and I feel better than I did a few weeks ago!

So what can I take away from the last two.. (not as awesome as I expected) months? even when your days don't turn out exactly how you hoped...  as the old song goes.. "Ob La Di Ob La Da.. Life goes on.. "

 

Catching up on my #filmfriday Here are a few images from October and November.

 

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

16 Be happy [in your faith] and rejoice and be glad-hearted continually (always);

17 Be unceasing in prayer [praying perseveringly];

18 Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will].

A Heart Exposed ~ a lesson in light ~ { Film Friday } https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2016/12/a-heart-exposed-a-lesson-in-light-film-friday But everything exposed by the light becomes visible - and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. Ephesians 5:13

If you've been following along with me here for the past few months you might know about this little film journey that I'm on. I have decided to primarily use film for my personal photography... an attempt to shoot one roll of film per month and share it here.

I was so disappointed when I received these scans back from the lab. The truth is I was hesitant to share these frames with you - They are incredibly imperfect (and not in the cool kind of imperfect way that I usually love). They are dull, they are underexposed and well.. just plain ugly.

For the last 3 or 4 months when the lab sends my film scans back to me.. they always send along some feedback on what I've done right or wrong. Almost every time they have told me how much color negative film LOVES light... it NEEDS light.. an abundance of light to come out looking beautiful, bright and clean. When it's underexposed it's left a bit dim, lack luster and just not quite right... which is what we have here.

As I was thinking about these photos and not wanting to share them here because they aren't so beautiful and perfect or even perfectly imperfect.. I realized that our hearts are a lot like film.  They need proper exposure to the light or they aren't quite right.  I've been so crazy (gratefully so) busy for the last several months that I haven't taken the time to tend to my heart.. to let it soak up the light {HIS light} that it needs to be beautiful, bright and clean. My heart has been rather self-centered , negative, and underexposed.

In an attempt to recharge, refocus and soak in all that light.. I've decided to take the month of December and focus on simple things like my family, this Christmas season, spending time in the Word and reading a few books. I'm saying goodbye to the internet and my cell phone for the next few weeks... until next year...

For those of you who stop by this little space of mine every so often.. THANK YOU! It truly means so much. 

I'm wishing you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing to you O' Lord my rock and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14

Because It Makes Me Happy... {last nights dinner} https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2016/11/because-it-makes-me-happy-last-nights-dinner Hey Friends. I don't know about you,  but food fills me...and I'm talking more than just filling my stomach. Everything about it makes me happy...  photographing it, thinking about it, talking about it, growing it, cooking it, sharing it and of course the obvious.. EATING it!

So in an attempt to add a little food inspiration and JOY out into the world today.. here my friends, was last nights dinner.

Please forgive the lack of precision... I don't measure when I cook.. like ever.. it takes away the fun..    :)

  • 1 pound ground pork / garlic powder (I use a lot... because garlic is yummy) / salt & pepper / cayenne pepper / panko bread crumbs / dried basil & oregano / one egg.  Mix into small bite size meatballs. Cook in oiled stock pot until done..  browned and little bits stick to the bottom of pan.
  • Add fresh garlic to the pan with the meatballs. (I used about 5 big cloves of garlic..and I pressed it so all the yummy juices were released)
  • Add chicken stock to the pot with the meatballs and garlic.. be sure to stir well and get all of those delicious brown bits off the bottom of the pan. Because brown bits = FLAVOR!
  • I added about 5 handfuls of chopped kale (I like a LOT of kale in my soup.. add more or less whatever you prefer). 2 cans of drained white kidney beans, fresh chopped oregano (a small handful) and some fresh thyme leaves (maybe a tablespoon).
  • I let it simmer for about 30 minutes.. just long enough for me to clean up my mess, cut some fresh herbs (yes it's November and my garden is still producing fresh herbs!!) and break out the bread and butter... and wine.
  • Top soup with grated parmesan and fresh parsley.

This is absolutely one of my all time favorite soups to make and to eat. Enjoy!

Savoring those slow moments of our summer days.. { Film Friday } https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2016/9/savoring-those-slow-moments-of-our-summer-days It's hard to believe summer is over. I'm left wondering how it seems I blinked my eyes and summer disappeared.  Grateful for the busy, the chaos, the tired days and the quiet moments in between.

For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To HIM be the glory forever. Amen.

Romans 11:36

 

This is the third roll of film that I've done since deciding to take up shooting film for my personal work. Though I mostly underexposed this roll of portra 160 the lab did a beautiful job in developing and scanning. It's not perfect but I'm so in love with the colors and contrast it produced.. even after I screwed it up! Still so much to learn but I am so loving this film adventure!

When life hands you cucumbers... {personal post} https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2016/8/when-life-hands-you-cucumbers-personal-post When life hands you a bag full of cucumbers.. you make pickles.

Lots of pickles.  And the refrigerator kind. Because with refrigerator pickles, there are no rules. At least not in this house.  Today's pickle flavors included some kind of red jalapeno looking thing with cilantro and onion,  sweet & spicy jalapeno with onion and celery salt, traditional dill with just a hint of sweetness, and the wildest of all... sweet basil with garlic and sea salt.  When it comes to cooking I like to throw rules and recipes out the window. This heart of mine is happiest when I can chop and mix and concoct as I go along... letting my eyes and nose be the boss. Usually they do a pretty good job.. though we won't know for sure for another 48 hours. ;)

Tyler ~ Class of 2017 {Carlton, MN High School Senior Photographer} https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2016/8/tyler-class-of-2017-carlton-mn-high-school-senior-photographer What can I say about this photo session? Oh my goodness... not only did photographing Tyler take me back to my home town of Carlton, MN but seeing Tyler's face was just like stepping back in time 20-some years ago and looking at his dad! I cannot look at these photos and not smile! Sam, Heidi, and Tyler... I cannot tell you enough how much it means to me that you chose me to capture these photos! It was so much fun to hang out with you guys for a few hours. Best of luck for your senior year Tyler!

This is the third year that I have had the privilege of capturing moments for this wonderful family! One of my favorite things about being a photographer is getting to know new people and watching their families grow throughout the years. Oh and big hugs from sweet kiddos at the end of the session are absolutely the BEST! Tory, Thank you for sharing your beautiful family with me...

The one that almost never happened... {Menomonie, WI family photographer} https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2016/8/the-one-that-almost-never-happened-menomonie-wi-family-photographer I was afraid this family session wasn't going to happen. Andrea and her lovely family of little men came all the way from MN for their family photos. With a forecast full of rain and dreariness,  the skies opened up long enough for us to brave the wet outdoors. The sun even peeked during our time together! Thank you Andrea and Ben for braving the weather. Thank you to the three little dudes who were soooo hungry and waited patiently to fill their starving bellies ;).  Thanking God for clearing the skies long enough for us to make this happen! I hope you enjoyed your time in Menomonie. Your family was a joy to photograph!

Introducing my new love... {personal project} https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2016/6/film-is-not-dead-personal-project What is that saying.. All things old are new again? One might ask (and by one I mean my husband) why in a world of technology and in the age of all things digital would I be drawn back to shooting film?  I love the way film slows me down and causes me to really pay attention to every detail in the frame. There are only 36 clicks of that shutter and I have no way to see what I'm doing!  Sending off the roll of film and having to wait 10 days to receive my scans back from the lab makes me feel like a kid at Christmas.. not knowing exactly what I might find in the package. I'm finding the waiting to be more rewarding than the instant gratification that digital offers. I love the imperfections and that fact that what I get is what I get.. there's no going back to make it better.. it just is. I'm learning how each film stock has it's own character and nuances.. In the same way an artist would choose a type of paint... each stock will yield a different result. What I love most about film is that certain nostalgic feel it possesses .. a softness and grit that digital just doesn't replicate. While film isn't something that I plan on bringing into my client work any time soon.. I am excited to challenge myself to use film in all of my personal projects.

I adore these three with their wild eyes and crazy hair... and their beautiful mama who might be just as crazy as they are. Every so often the stars seem to align and these wondrous moments unfold just so. If I were to share with you my heart in a photograph it might be similar to this photo session... a beautiful mess of chaos and perfectly imperfect...

Nothing like a mama's love... {Menomonie, WI photographer} https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2016/5/nothing-like-a-mamas-love-menomonie-wi-photographer "A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path."

It's a beautiful life {eau claire, wi mother/child photographer} https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2016/5/its-a-beautiful-life-eau-claire-wi-mother/child-photographer  "Beauty is not caused. It is." Emily Dickinson

If there is one thing this photography journey has taught me and continues to prove is that the most beautiful things in life aren't contrived or forced. They just simply are.

Life can be simple and calm or messy and unpredictable. Whether the moment happens to bring perfect peace or a little chaos it's undoubtedly in those honest, real moments that the most beauty is found. 

 

Carmen, you and your babies are absolutely amazing.

catching up with an old friend {cloquet mn family photographer} https://www.angiegreen.com/blog/2016/5/catching-up-with-an-old-friend-cloquet-mn-family-photographer I was super excited to have the opportunity to catch up with an old friend and photograph his beautiful family. I have known this guy since we were about 3 years old and it was nothing short of awesomeness to get to see him, his wife and two amazing little boys. Also a huge bonus that I got to see his dad after all these years!! Do I even need to tell you how much I fell in love with this beautiful sunroom and gorgeous red couch??? I could've moved right into that room and stayed forever!
