The Hoilien Family

Heidi and I met a few years back in a music class for our kids. From there we have been a part of a moms group together as well as more music classes. I was able to photograph her beautiful kids last year and this year they were just as fun to run around with! We hit up the warehouse area on St. Anthony and the kids had blast. Here are a few candids from the day!

Children's Desiring God 2009 Conference

For the second year, I have been able to photograph the 2009 Children's Desiring God (CDG) Conference. Here is a blip from the web-site:

All that God has ever done, is now doing, and ever will do is to show the “might of [His] awesome deeds... the fame of [His] abundant goodness.” God is making a name for Himself so that we would “declare [His] greatness.” One of the ways God does this is through one generation commending His works to another (Psalm 145:4-7). Because God is central in all of life, He must be central in all of our interactions with children. He is the center of our prayers, our teaching, our relationship building, our worship, our actions, our speech, and our thoughts. As we understand all of life as it relates to God at the center, we will be more equipped to orient children to the centrality of God. This is the focus of the 2009 Children Desiring God Conference.

Plenary speakers include John Piper, Paul David Tripp, Bruce Ware and David Michael. In addition, a number of diverse and experienced seminar leaders will provide practical help and encouragement for parents, teachers, leaders, and all who are invested in ministry to children and youth.

One of the best sermons I have ever heard is right here. "The God-Centeredness of the Gospel. Enjoy!!

Another Mini Session: The Lepper Family

The Lepper family met me on Saturday afternoon for their mini-session and it was exactly enough time to photograph the 3 of them. Asher, their little man, was so happy and such a joy to photograph. We got some great grins and giggles from him too!
