Bless! Truck 2016

Today was so SUPER SPECIAL.  We (Gateway Church Frisco) got to go all over Frisco Texas today to the first responders and pray with them, give them a tub full of goodies and to just simply THANK them for all they do.

I LOVED it and the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than myself.

Bless A Life Day

On Saturday, November 14, Gateway Church in Frisco Texas went out into the city on a quest to BLESS people with kindness, recognition, acts of service & care packages. The event was called Bless A Life – Serve Day.  I was drawn to attend the 1st responders group which was called “Bless! Truck”.
We went to Central Fire Station, Frisco Police Department, Centennial Medical Center & Baylor Medical Center at Frisco.
While there we had the AMAZING opportunity to thank them, pray with them and HUG them.
Take a look at the images that made November 14th so special to me.

Behind the Scenes and Below the Waist

Was recently doing company head shots for a client of mine & ‘THIS guy’ walked up …. he said “It’s just from the waist up, right?!”  Of course MY response was “For YOURS, we need to do a head to toe!” He agreed.  ; )

Seeing him MADE my day – so enjoy a little peek into my world — Behind the Scenes and Below the Waist.  ABP_0806

Roxie LOVES goats

I recently met DELIGHTFUL Roxie and these 2 little precious goats.  It was here that I discovered her LOVE for goats and living life to the fullest.  They had a little corral at the ATT Stadium for their goats and there was a steady stream of people coming by to adore these 2 beautiful creatures.

Piper is the brown one and Poppy is the white one.

Feed My Sheep

I recently had an  A M A Z I N G  opportunity to join with other fellow Believers to make ham & cheese sandwiches for the homeless people that frequent Presbyterian Night Shelter in Fort Worth.  I saw on facebook that a friend of mine was extending an invitation to anyone who wanted to help.  Their goal was to make more than 1900 total sandwiches.  Trinity Cumberland Presbyterian Church does this every other month & I cannot wait to go back in May.

There were 2300 ham & cheese sandwiches made & when we ran out of ham we kept going and made 257 (double) cheese sandwiches!!  The total time to assemble all the sandwich makings was 1.5 hours.  They hit a new goal, 2557 TOTAL sandwiches were made and delivered.

Each sandwich = .28
Feed My sheep = PRICELESS

Thanks to Mary

Another HUGE thanks to Mary for the A M A Z I N G cookie treats she put together for me this year.
The only directive I gave her was “do what YOU do best”.  All of my clients who received these were WOWed & TOUCHed beyond belief!

Driven by Passion

I was recently on an assignment and met a woman that was driven by her passion.
Passion can be defined as an intense, driving, or overmastering feeling or conviction, as well as a strong liking or desire for or devotion to some activity, object, or concept.

Her passion was about flags and the respect of them. http://www.usflag.org/flagetiquette.html.

The flag she was so passionate about was not being flown properly …

When we had the chance to look again at the flag, her PASSION had driven her to the proper authorities & the flag was waving proudly for all to see.

I was inspired that day by someone who stands up for what they so strongly believe in.

It’s just that simple

I am so very IMPRESSED with the NEW Eye-Fi card
I recently purchased the Eye-Fi Pro|X2 [16GB + WiFi] along with the ShutterSnitch app … and OMGoodness!!

I have it set up to tether small jpgs to my ipad mini while the RAWs  go to my CF card.

During shoots, my assistant can monitor everything as a 2nd set of eyes.
Once the shoot is done, I sit down with my client(s), have them “star” their ‘SELECTS’, then we review all their final choices and I email myself their list of FAVS … it’s just that simple.
