People Magazine: 1 Year Later

We’re avid Instagram users. We love being able to stay connected to our friends all around the country, especially the ones we don’t get to see in person as often as we’d like. We love feeling like we get to be a small part of their travels, their families, their adventures, and, heck, we even get to know what they’re eating for breakfast. We also just love the pure fun in Instagram. The double tapping, the hashtags, the trends. One of our favorite trends, of course, being #TBT, or Throwback Thursday.

And this Throwback Thursday is a special one for us.

So much has happened in the last year. So much. We’ve been blessed in more ways than we can count. But this moment stands out more than most: getting our work published on the home page of People Magazine Online. We’ll never forget getting an email from People Magazine and wondering if it was real. We’ll never forget sitting on our living room couches, hitting refresh on our computers, waiting for the photo to appear. Every time a new photo posted and it wasn’t the photo, we got a little more anxious. We knew more about what was happening in Hollywood that day than on any other day of our entire lives. With every click you could hear us discussing important world matters like, Did you know Adam Levine got engaged?! Oh! Look! Jennifer Lawrence is on the set of her newest movie! Dang you, George Clooney and your perfectly chiseled face, get off the screen! We don’t care what kind of groceries you got, Jennifer Aniston, just show us our photo! After an entirely unproductive morning of browser refreshing, we could’ve been considered experts in celebrity gossip. But, by the afternoon, we saw four words that we’ll never forget:

Give me a b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l! 

Those were the first four words of not just an isolated photo, but an actual article that featured one of our photos on the most highly trafficked celebrity news sites in the world, with an average of 8.6 million unique users each month and 653 million pages views. Wow. Talk about a moment. One of the coolest parts? They quoted Amy. Photographer Amy Demos tells PEOPLE… Check that off on a list of five words we NEVER thought we’d hear in this order!

We don’t have the time or space here to explain the full course of events that led to this featured image (it’s a LONG story!), and we don’t need to, because, at the end of the day, regardless of how it happened, even though the “photo credit” belongs to us, the real credit, like with everything in life, belongs to God, and if we take the platform He’s given us to promote anyone else but Him, then we’ve forgotten where our voice came from in the first place.

Here’s to a very special “TBT” anniversary and an exciting milestone in our career. Happy Thursday, friends!
