constancelyu been trying to be more present lately (plus trying to catch up on emails & meetings) so haven't been posting as much non-work related stuff, but will ease back in with a half personal/half work post! a few fun tidbits from the last two weeks or so...a postcard & matchbook from some fun eats in chicago, gifts from @_charlesthomas for this old lady's birthday, and some details from @aimeemazzenga's stunning wedding - it's been good y'all (especially because it's peony season). #birthday #peonyseason 6d

constancelyu sometimes you have days in your lives or careers where you are shown why God has placed you where you are - and sometimes those days also make you question even more why you do what you do. this week we were blessed with the opportunity to document a sweet little family's last moments with their baby girl....no words can describe the deep/endless grief and yet supreme joy in the Lord seen through this mother & father. every minute was a minute to be savored, enjoyed..to be spent loving. their utter and complete love completely eclipsed the shadow of all their grief and even the shadow of death. as we silently drove away from the shoot, all the other things that so usually fill our minds & hearts... little inconveniences, loving praise or material things, beautiful weddings and shoots, social media, etc...just seemed so vain and insignificant and we were deeply humbled. not that all these things are bad, but we must not let our lives be defined nor our hearts captured by them. beyond our tiny little worlds are real people with burdens so deep and pain so sharp that we cannot even begin to imagine its touch. we need to be thankful for all the good & "bad" things in our lives and love ever the more...the beauty of what we do is that we get to document love - sincere, self-sacrificing, deep, patient, relentless love in all its imperfections and trials. -- "i know now, Lord, why you utter no answer. You are yourself the answer. Before your face questions die away. What other answer would suffice?" (cs lewis) 1mon

constancelyu "instead of that, having passed out from under the old covenant into the new, and resting in our risen Lord, who once was slain, we commemorate his death by a festival most joyous. it came over the Passover, which was a feast of the Jews; but unlike that feast, which was kept by unleavened bread, this feast is brimful of joy and gladness. it is composed of bread and of wine, without a trace of bitter herbs, or anything that suggests sorrow and grief. …

the memorial of Christ’s death is a festival, not a funeral; and we are to come to the table with gladsome hearts and go away from it with praises, for 'after supper they sang a hymn' (matt 26:30)" - spurgeon //
love that good friday means good monday, tuesday, wednesday...etc. we come rejoicing because we who are unworthy are forever secure in Christ & can near to Him everyday! #goodfriday #goodeveryday #thankyoujesus
