Chris + Sheri

This was the coldest session yet. Chris and Sheri (who are also very dear friends of ours) were such incredible sports as we froze, posed, shot, darted, froze, shot, posed, darted..and did it all over again. :)

Thank you Chris and Sheri for being so easy going and fun, and thanks so much for dinner and conversation. :)

Mary's bunch..

This one was a tight squeeze. One daughter in from school in Duluth for just a couple days, one daughter flying in to Fargo from Texas that morning. And the sun giving us less and less (and less) hours of it's company. BUT it all worked out (thank you Lord) and we got happy faces, cooperative puppies, and beautiful, warm, just before dusk, sunshine.

I love to shoot extended families. The look on "the mom's" face is always so warming. You can see the joy Momma's have when they have their whole family together, it's like they just don't stop smiling. And when that happens, all I really have to do is be there.

Thank you Mary for having me-the pleasure was all mine. :)

The Riley's

Once again with the Riley's. This time we met up downtown for another session at a beautiful old building downtown, which dear friends of ours were gracious enough to let me use. And then outside for some quick, (chilly!) but fun shots in the alley.

I always enjoy working with this family, you can see very clearly how much they love their littln's. :)

The black and whites are really speaking to me lately- SO, here you go. ;)

International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church

Encouraging all my brothers and sisters to spend time next Sunday, November 13th, in prayer for our family around the world who suffer for their trust in Jesus Christ. They suffer and die and are found firm in their resolve that He is who He says He is, and He CAN be trusted.

There are men and women, fathers, mothers and children, who choose to stand with Yeshua in the full face of impending death and suffering. Their faith is real and deep and founded on Truth and trust in the One who gave His life for us.

Yeshua Ha'Meshiach, Yahweh, Jehovah Jireh, God our protector and provider, I pray for my brothers and sisters who choose to suffer for Your name, please fill them with strength and new revelation of Your love and Truth. Protect their families and give them love and forgiveness for their persecutors. I pray for the leaders of the oppressive countries, that You would grant them repentance that they would know the truth, that You would move on their hearts to allow freedom to worship you.
