Biz Pics!

I don't think a business portrait needs to be boring. Even a basic head-and-shoulders shot should show the unique personality of the individual.

Fabulous Ms. Teresa was in my studio last week for a biz pic. She is an Arbonne consultant - great products, if anyone is looking for a really wonderful skin care line!

This Isn't Your Parent's Church Directory

That's what one of the members of First Congreg. said as I photo- graphed them for their new directory!

And it's true. My vision for a church directory is NOT the painful, ugly process that we've come to expect. A directory should be a ministry from start to finish. It should be beautiful. It should be fun!

Fun? Church directory photography? I know, I know. You're skeptical, aren't you? But the members of First Congregational aren't - not anymore.

And I've discovered that I LOVE doing this ministry. It's a lot of hard work, but it provides this poor widow a living wage :), it allows me to partner with congregation members to create a beautiful directory AND fund other church ministries, and best of's....(you know it's coming)....FUN! We laugh and talk and get to know one another. The hardest part is leaving when the photography time is over.

The best part is that I feel like I have another church home. Isn't that how it should be?

Interested in having our studio photograph your next directory? Click here for more information. Wow. I sound like an informercial, don't I? I guess I'm just in a happy tizzy about directories. Down, girl... :)
