Hi!! I'm Kristin! Also, known as “Momma Wall”! :) I am a mom to six amazing children, precious grandson Gideon and a wife to my sweet hubby of almost 25 years! I own Lifesong Photography alongside my daughter, Emily. Since April of 2010, we've been capturing love stories as real as they come. I homeschooled all of my kids and still continue to with my youngest. God started forming the vision for Delight in 2011. After its launch in January of 2013, God has been growing it into an amazing ministry! I feel so small to be a part of something so big!
After my great-grandparents homesteaded our family ranch back in the late 1800’s & growing up on an apple orchard in rural Washington, I developed a deep love for tight knit relationships and family from a young age. That’s why having meaningful relationships with girls means so much to me!
I love where God has placed my family and I feel so excited to see what His plans are for our future here especially with the Delight House being right next door! A girl from the North with a heart for the South, I’m a lover of all things aqua, wool socks and anything chocolate, Frasier Fir candles, good novels, and bubble baths. I'm passionate about seeing young women come alive and embrace their beauty and gifts, and to see them appreciate who God created them to be! Whether behind the camera or guitar, a paintbrush or pen, we're all unique and creative, and there is nothing more beautiful than seeing how God brings healing and hope through the arts.
I'm Brandy…I'm a portrait photographer specializing in newborns, families, and high school senior girls. I live on a farm in Middle Tennessee with my wonderful husband Keyunta and our 2 cats - Mr. Kitty and Miss Cleo! I'm a newbie gardener and I enjoy seeing the seeds we cultivate to grow and produce beautiful and yummy fruit/veggies for us to harvest and partake of. It has allowed me to see the intricacy of God's mighty hand at work and appreciate the simplicity of our life on the farm.
I love Jesus and connecting with people over coffee and sweet treats. Being in the kitchen, cooking and cultivating community around the dinner table makes me happy! I most definitely over use emoji's, exclamation points, and the word 'YA'LL' but I'm okay with that!
I am so excited to be part of the Delight team!
I'm Kate...I'm a graphic designer and worship leader. I am someone who craves the presence of God and I'm striving to know His love with all of me, and for that love to pour out of me. I've been a missionary, a history major, and a photographer. I'm a mother and a wife, someone who has grieved with all of my heart and been dealt loss, but someone who has experienced the ultimate Gain as well.
I guess I am kind of a crazy person. I love to live on the edge of life, but I've found out first hand how scary that can be sometimes. I'm constantly reminding myself that "perfect love casts out all fear" because I know that taking huge leaps of faith is the most rewarding thing in the world, if God is in it. Romans 8:31
This is somewhat cliche, but I seriously love coffee so much. I love great coffee....I could be a coffee connoisseur. I have played bass, trumpet, violin, and harmonica, and currently play guitar, piano, and drums. I write stories, I write music, I hand letter and find therapy in art. I love the challenge in and perspective of taking pictures with my phone. I grew up in Nebraska, prairies, thunderstorms, and football are a part of who I am.
I absolutely love designing. I feel like I stumbled into it...it wasn't something that was on my to-do list. It wasn't on my goal sheet. But God had it in mind for me, and He knew me better than I knew me.
Hi, there! My name is Hope. I am also know as the “Den Mom” as I have the honor of leading the online Big Sister’s group. I am one of the Big Sisters here at Delight and when I'm not sitting at my computer or on the phone chatting with one of the Delight girls, you can find me find laughing with the little kiddos I nanny, spending time with my nieces and nephews, enjoying a sunrise or sunset, or singing and writing worship songs to my amazing Savior! I have an obsession with coffee, snow and way that it sparkles, rain, and puddle jumping.
I am all about having heart-to-hearts with anyone, anytime, anywhere. I long to dive deep into the heart of someone and their lives right away. I want to know every detail - even the messy - because it's the messy pieces that God takes and makes an absolutely beautiful story out of, and that is just what He has done with me. He has taken the pieces of my life that the world has deemed "broken" or "not good enough" and made them beautiful. He has given me a story - just my own - to share with the world. A story about His redemption, grace, and love for me and His people.
I feel humbled and blessed to serve the girls of Delight alongside some of the most amazing woman that I have had the honor of meeting. God has done amazing things in and through Delight and I cannot wait to see what the future holds!
Hello! I’m Elizabeth (Beth), a redeemed recipient of unmerited favor, a wife to my sweet husband and mama to my orange tabby, Five. I enjoy being outdoors almost as much as I love curling up with my journal, a cup of coffee and warm blankie. Some of my favorite things are gardening, capturing nature scenes on my phone camera while walking with friends, pilates with my mom, stand-up paddle boarding, seeing the world, sketching, writing, fashion and decorating. To God be the glory for homemade desserts, vintage quilts and long summer days!
As Vice President of the Delight Foundation, it is my tremendous privilege to encourage, pray over and extend kindness to the young women I encounter. We only have so long on this earth to share our lives and I want to make the most of that. I truly love participating in the redemptive process, where beauty arises out of ashes and hope deferred transforms into hope fulfilled. In my experience, the valleys are a little less dark and a much more endurable when we have someone walking alongside of us.
Hi! I'm Callie Beale and I'm a lover of spontaneity, adventure, community and Nora Ephron. (Don't get me started on You've Got Mail.) My greatest joy was born in the darkest time of my life. God loved me in my brokenness and gave me a purpose, peace and happiness that can never be taken away from me. I thought I had to choose a career that would solely serve to provide financially- now I am a wedding and editorial photographer and working never feels like work. God brought me to the place that makes my heart sing- Savannah, Georgia where I feel most at home under the giant spanish-moss crowned live oaks with a view of the ocean. When I am not shooting I can usually be found happily roaming coastal streets of Savannah with a film camera, on the hunt for vintage love letters from the early 1900's or striking up conversations with strangers. I love any opportunity to encourage and fill others with the joy that God has so lovingly provided me. "God sent me to bring good news to the poor, bind up the brokenhearted and to proclaim freedom to the captives." Isaiah 61. I get so excited to help others find that sense of freedom that comes with following Jesus!
