Fitness Photo Shoot || Hannah Fankhauser ||

Earlier this fall, I was assigned to photograph some fitness style photos for The Overflow Blog. I thought, "No problem! This will be fun." But each time I attempted to find someone for the shoot, it fell through. One girl had something come up on the day we were supposed to do the shoot, and another girl wasn't sure she was the best fit for a workout session, and decided to cancel too... 

"Why is this so difficult to find a fitness model??" I asked myself. (All my models are incredible volunteers, so that may have something to do with it). I was about ready to write to my boss and ask for a different assignment and explain that I just didn't have the right resources for this one (and it had gotten very cold that week... Making it even harder for an outdoor shoot). But then I realized my friend Hannah, who I see in a class once a week & at Bible study, would be amazing for this kind of shoot, if she would be willing. 

When I asked her, she very enthusiastically said "Yes! I'd love to!!" And I am SO grateful she did!! {Y'all it felt below freezing the day of our shoot and it was on the verge of a thunderstorm, but she was so gracious, and an incredible model!}

So thankful for Jesus' provision in every single photo assignment I have had this year! Hannah's willingness is such a testament to His faithfulness to under guide even the little details of our lives!  

I love this poem by Amy Carmichael:

“Thou art the Lord who slept upon the pillow,
Thou art the Lord who soothed the furious sea,
What matters beating wind and tossing billow
If only we are in the boat with Thee?
Hold us quiet through the age-long minute
While Thou art silent and the wind is shrill :
Can the boat sink while Thou, dear Lord, are in it;
Can the heart faint that waiteth on Thy will?”
