I enjoy the chance to photograph a few different projects in the off-season. On a chilly November afternoon, at a family friend’s Christmas tree farm, I shot a beautiful group of ladies from Christian Life Assembly. Some of these images were used in new promotional materials for upcoming winter events. I love winter sunshine! Happy, happy, happy.

I’m a big Donald Miller fan. So when I saw a book called “Love Does” by Bob Goff laying around, with a foreword by Donald Miller… I was intrigued. It was a summer afternoon. A Friday. Candace was babysitting two boys at a beautiful house all day — and I took off work. (Rare summer occasion. There’s a reason I remember this day so clearly. Not working on a summer day is awesome.) Upon finding the book, I plunked myself on the couch and read Bob’s words cover to cover. I was captivated. I wrote something called “sifting through memories” that afternoon–inspired by Bob and his desire to write about everything he remembers from his life. (I love the quote included in that post. Read it.)

Being shaken is not a great feeling.
Those little doodads in your ears don’t know what’s what–all the up and down, side to side–the room is spinning. In elementary school earthquake drills we were taught to “FIND SECURITY, NOW.” (Do all schools do earthquake drills? Maybe the South does hurricane drills. We did earthquake drills. Often.) A desk, a doorframe, something steady. Hold on tight until the quake passes.

My brother Brandon has been dating an awesome girl named Jen for one year now, and her immediate family needed updated family photos. Or as Jen told me, their only family photos. Hah! I loved spending some time with these folks on a trail not too far from our home. And as you can clearly see, the star of the show was little 2-year-old Thomas. Unfortunately, I photoshopped out the rug burn on his nose, so you don’t get to enjoy that scab anymore. He’s adorable. And documenting family shoots like this, with a mix of posed and “everyday” life, make me want to consider shooting them more. Just maybe. Happy Monday & start of a new work-week! (This’ll be my last before Christmas, I think. Yahoo!)
