B.B. Steel Take 3

Another great concert by these guys! In my opinion, it rivaled, or even surpassed, the first show they did. The skill of these musicians is unlike anyone I’ve met. Also- It was Julie and John’s 25th!

First Senior Session of the Year

Started out this season with a beautiful senior session!

Superweek 2016

This past August featured the latest installment of the Superweek legacy. Jen and Cory Miller, two incredible people have been heading up a community outreach summer program for kids in Midland, Pennsylvania since 2010. They had a great turnout from the get-go, starting with 76 campers and 36 volunteer workers. The days are filled with games and food, and the overwhelming love of God. Throughout the years, word spread and involvement in the camp grew steadily. Eventually, in conjunction with Four Mile Church, The Center opened. It became a flourishing community center in Midland, run by the very same Jen and Cory, and opened its doors to the town. They have grown immensely. Student ministries during the week, bike workshops, music and art lessons, food and clothing banks, adult ministries and classes, field trips, a childcare, and the list goes on and on. The Center has become a home to the community. The love shown for this town was revealed in this year’s Superweek. 7 years later, the camp has grown to 174 campers, with 42 volunteers. Every year it expands and grows, and the children and families grow with them. Just take a look, the photos say it all.

Kidz Blast 2016

Forget cheesy church VBS, forget Presbyterian mumbling. Four Mile Kidz Blast has redefined summer church events. Combining huge family dinners, stories, games and worship, this event has taken over. Families get super excited seeing the event banners go up on the roadside, and registration explodes. It’s all they can talk about. Water games, the story of God, wholesome excellently cooked meals, and a full live worship band, what better way to spend the early summer evenings?

The Maple Syrup Festival

If you grew up in Beaver County, you know that if you’re going anywhere, you do NOT cut through Brady’s Run during the Maple Syrup Festival weekend. It’s quite simple, because it’s going to take you twice as long as any other route. I’ve always avoided the park that weekend, it’s just what you did. But then my friends, some of whom aren’t even from Pennsylvania, have gone for years, and me, a resident, had never been to the Festival. Not acceptable. So I tagged along last year and it was a blast, especially the pancakes. I grew up at events that had all these tents and vendors, I was never a huge fan. But it’s the company you keep y’all.

Christmas is upon us.

Christmas season is here. But that doesn’t mean we can’t fit in a few more photos. After all, the sun comes up doesn’t it?

It was great fun photographing these two families. Both I’ve known for a good portion of my life, and being on this journey through time and having our paths continuously cross is something really cool.
