it was a photograph-ing weekend!

I had a great time this weekend with various opportunities to photograph! It started on Saturday afternoon when I met some lovely ladies from my photography class at Starbucks to go forward with our assignment for the week - community, and a "photo walk". Well we attempted to do our assignment at Starbucks, but after we were told we couldn't photograph inside the store - we walked around the HEB parking lot! These were my favorites from the shoot:

Right after the shoot, my new photog friend, Amanda McNeely let me come on a family shoot with her! {check out her blog & website here!} Amanda is in my photography class & is a talented photographer here in Midland. She has been a great encouragement to me as I start off on my own photography journey & was very very kind to let me tag along on Saturday afternoon. I didn't want to get in the way - but I did get a few good shots!
Here is Amanda doing her thing

Thank you Amanda!
Check out her pictures of the day on her blog too!

Then on Sunday afternoon I headed up to church to take pictures of the families that were getting baptized! It was a special time to get to capture the moments before as they stood together with their family member about to embark on the most amazing journey with Jesus. Then during the actual service I got to photograph baby dedication! I got some great shots & am still sifting through them all. Because I don't think it would be appropriate to put pictures on my blog of people I don't know without their permission I'll just leave you with this one I took before the service started ;) It was a great opportunity and I hope to do it again!
