The fundraiser is a very unique Christmas photo shoot. Guess who sorta volunteered to shoot the pics? Our daughter is a professional photographer and she taught me enough that I'm dangerous!
I pulled my Nikon D80 out of mothballs and snapped 4 pics and it proceeded to die! Not only was I extremely sad because my Nikon was dead but in 3 days, I was suppose to shoot pics! I didn't stress too much over it....many people have some kind of digital camera today....but I was used to shooting a Nikon and I love my lenses. So, that night I went to church and mentioned it to a friend and she said....
"oh I have a camera you can use. My daughter is a professional photographer and she gave it to me to learn how to use, but I've never had it out of the bag. I have no idea what kind it is, but you are welcome to come by and get it."
To God be the glory! It was a Nikon and I did a little happy dance!
Jehovah Jireh! God our Provider!
I've been shooting pics every Sunday afternoon for 4 Sundays. Then I spend a few hours each week editing and sending them by email...in East Texas high speed internet....leaves a lot to be desired! The Lord keeps reminding me to serve with gladness and joy.
It's been fun....but I'm pooped after standing on my feet all day and doing squats. After I come home and edit them during the week, I'm filled with joy and you might hear me telling a few adults in the pics....keep your eyes on ME! heheehee...never fails...they have ADHD!
Not only was this the best $20 people spent for a fundraiser....they got awesome pics!
Here are a few. Don't ya just love the Texas touch!!! :)
