Christian Creative: Porshia Hernandez

July 1, 2016

Today, we are meeting Christian Creative, Porshia Hernandez. She has the most stunning photography work and is such a delight to talk to. This beautiful lady has a beautiful story.

Tell me, Porshia. What are three of the quirkiest things about you?
Three quirky things about me, Hmmmmm You will defiantly hear a snort come out every time I laugh, Bacon burgers are pretty much something I think about daily & I am the worst dancer.. Like for real!

When did you start your photography business?

I started my photography business towards the end of February of 2016, I always Had a desire in my heart to tell stories & testimonies of people I encounter, It wasn’t until I picked up my camera that the vision fully took off.

I know you are just in the beginnings of business. What obstacles have you had to jump through?

Some of the obstacles I’ve had to overcome when starting my business Is not letting fear have control of it, Once I've invited fear into this  Satan automatically is taking control of it & that is something I refuse to let happen, Yes I love taking pictures but when all said and done I am just the vessel behind the lens  and this ministry belongs to God. So Satan better back up!

 I am just stocked with tricky questions today. What has been your favorite photography session?

As far as my favorite session so far? Gosh that’s such a hard question when your soul purpose in photography is to tell stories, I will say one of my favorite MOMENTS is definitely when I did a shoot with a local model in town, She is absolutely beautiful, BRIGHT red hair and a face full of freckles, & for so many years of her life she has been bullied, When I take her pictures I can see her coming alive, at that moment nothing else matters.. That encourages me and is a constant reminder of why I am doing this

What would you tell your sixteen year old self?

If I could give my 16 year old self any type of advice it would definitely be to love and value yourself, & not to allow people to have so much power over your life & dictate who you are. Your value & who you are comes from God not people, as soon as people become your everything and not God you loose your identity in Him and it begins to rest in people & that will cause inner wounds that can take years to heal .

What has God been teaching you lately?

What God has been teaching me lately is to take time to look at all that He is doing in my life, And to not get so caught up with the busyness of owning a business, When I allow myself to become overly busy doing Gods work I've completely lost the passion and the vision behind it & I know once the passion is gone He has the power to take it away. So having Selah moments are a MUST.

Okay, here is a tricky question. Ready? If you could photograph anyone, who would it be?

If I could photograph anyone It would for sure be Tamera Mowry. Yes! from Sister Sister haha! I just her! She keeps Christ the center of her life & has no problem telling the world that, She proves that you can be on TV & still glorify God!
