If you've been following along you know that I love taking photos of members of our awesome church, Greenleaf Vineyard. We started out tiny, meeting in the basement of a bank. Now, we're a flourishing and diverse community meeting at Culbreth Middle School thanks to the incredible guidance of Rodger and Angela. I've known Rodger and Angela since 2008 when I first wondered into the chank (church + bank) as a freshman with tons of questions about my faith and seeking a homey church.
In between my senior year of high school and freshman year of college, Drew and I and a few other friends took a summer long trip to Costa Rica where we volunteered with a great church, we helped start a recycling program, and we served in an after school community development program. So coming off that paradise high, I was looking for a church that was authentic, a people that cared for the community, and approachable pastors with genuine, God-centered hearts.
Ta-Da! Our church's motto is:
Honor God. Love The Community. Live Like Family
How perfect! After all this church has given me and and the amazing community our pastors have fostered, I was so happy to take Christmas card photos for the Otero's. We went to Hank Anderson Park in Carborro and walked around the path by a small pond. Angela specifically wanted a few photos that centered around her daughter to match some family photos when their son was around this age. Such a strong, amazing, and beautiful family!
