I just want to sleep! Plus March Madness Shoot Revealed!

 

Hello Loves!

I have a confession to make. I'm a tired mama/boss lady!

It's been a looong month. Since you don't know too much about me let me introduce you to me.

Hi! My name is Pamela Bentick. And I'm a... 

  1. wife
  2. mom of a toddler
  3. pregnant lady
  4. babysitter to my amazing and beautiful niece
  5. wedding photographer
  6. AND a business owner in the middle of a major rebrand

I love every single role I play. I wouldn't change it for the world. It's just all these things can really make a girl tired...

I'm sure somebody can relate.

I'm trying to keep up with everything and be the best me I can be. But some days...I just want to, binge watch Netflix, do nothing, and/or sleep. But obviously we're in the real world and that can't happen. 

I wish I had some profound wisdom to share for ya'll on how to do everything and feel well rested. But unfortunately, I can say this though...

God will give you everything you need if you trust and give it all to Him. It may not happen right away. But just know, if you're doing your part, rest assure that He's doing His. It's like that saying "pray as if everything depends on God, and work as if everything depends on you. "

Anywhoo! 

So I haven't been too forthcoming with everything that's been going on in the ElaBee world. BUT my friend Treneka, who's also one of my amazingly talented associate photographers, and I put together a crazy 2-day styled engagement shoot last month

We planned our butts off for 2 months! We initially had 8 couples and several amazing vendors! 

But of course, life happened...

Family issues came up with some of the models, a couple vendors had to cancel last minute, and we almost had nothing for our models to wear. Things just seemed to be falling apart despite all the effort we put into it. There was a point in time where I was considering just to cancel the whole thing altogether.

But GOD stepped in and did His thang!

I could go into the whole emotion of it all, but that would make this post waaay too long. So in short...

I was stressed, I finally listened to God by talking to the he laid on my heart, the shoot went amazing!

Moral of this story...

If you have a dream or vision to do something, don't give up. Keep pushing, keep fighting. You may get tired and want to give up. But if it's something God has placed in your heart to do, trust that He'll make it happen, no matter how crazy things get.

Below are some of my favorites...

Oh! And let me not forget to mention, that the fur coat you're about to see was $20,000!! I've never been so close to so much money at one time...I felt like a celebrity photographer!
