Here we have MatthewÂ and Tracy.Â As you look at their pictures I want you to think “energizer bunny” when you see them. Â The are a very fun couple to work with, they have great ideas, they are very photogenic, they are flexible and are justÂ a Â great couple to spend timeÂ around.Â Â They love to laugh, cut up, get crazy and just flat out enjoy life.Â Â Â I wish you could hear some of the comments that went on in between the photos. We decided to go forward with the shoot this past Saturday to create all the images that we had previously discussed.Â Â I’m looking forward to working with these two again.
One of God’s gifts to us are our children.Â I had the chance to capture baby Zachary.Â As a photographer I usually have in mind what types of images I’d like to capture.Â For this baby shoot I had “so many” ideas that I wanted to implement but baby Zach wasn’t having it.. lolÂ He let me know real quick that he was the one “wearing the pants” in this “photo shoot” and that no pre-planned shot would happen without his approval.
Â I really thank his parents for hanging in there.Â It wasn’t that Zachary didn’t want to be photographed.Â He wanted to be photographed with the love and comforting touch of his parents.Â He made the rules, we had to play by them and in the end we capturedÂ some priceless images that willÂ be treasured for generations to come.

It is that time of year again where we can experience the powerful story of how Jesus Christ can completely change a person’s life.Â The inspiration for this play was given to Rev. Shirrell McNeill.Â The focus of the performance is to share how Jesus Christ can transform a lost soul into a man or woman of God.
I’ll never forgetÂ the first season of this play where it wasÂ performed by volunteer members of the North East Baptist Church members on NCCU’s campus.Â It was a very powerful theatrical performance where one could tell that the actors went beyond just acting.Â The 2nd season involved professionally designed sets and stage lighting and was performed at the Carolina Theater. As I watched the story unfold before my eyes I literally forgotÂ that I was watching a play because the multiple story lines were engaging. So here we are in the 3rd season. Without breaking confidentiality let me say that the newest play has infused some of the “rawness” from 1st season as well as providing us with “more” development of some characters that hasn’t been seen in previous versions.
