Ministry Photography

I took some new photos for the church's website this past weekend.  Some of them are blah, some I think are pretty cool.

This may be my favorite picture almost EVER





I tried so hard to get a picture of offering, but in the dark room with a high ISO, I still needed a slower shutter speed, and I just couldn't get it fast enough.  I'll keep trying.

Chocolate Cake

I recently attended a memorial service for a sweet little boy who loved chocolate cake.  His mom asked that we take photos of the reception.  I was too distracted by my children to really get that many photos.  But while they were in line for food (spaghetti, pizza, lasagna) I managed to snap a couple photos of the cake tables.  Fifteen feet of chocolate cakes, all made by friends of family of little Logan.





Logan was 4 1/2 when he was diagnosed with AT/RT; a very severe form of brain cancer. He fought for 18 months. It was a hard battle. He went home to be with the Lord on Feb 11, 2012. We remember Logan when we see anything from Pixar's Cars, chocolate cake, CostCo pizza, dancing and corvettes.

Shoot Through Things

Inspired by a post on, I have been trying to find new ways to look at my subjects and shoot through things.

This is Lara, I was shooting through a plant 
The plant I was shooting through

The out of focus wispy is a chain-link fence I was shooting through.

Open Mic - Again

The church had another Open Mic Night and I enjoyed taking photos of all the participants and audience.
