On The Photo Blog: Saying Goodbye

My thoughts on photographing a funeral are here.

My Country Life . . . good dog, Mac!

Please pray for the soul
Of Mr. Mole
Whose day turned black
When he met up with my Mac

Add this and the other day when Maccabee got himself a rabbit while on our evening walk through our property.

Good dog, Mac!  Daddy's garden has one less varmint feeding on it.

My video work for the Diocese of Knoxville

I am pretty proud of this.

I was engaged by the Office of Marriage Preparation and Enrichment to help them produce a series of videos on Natural Family Planning, called "It Takes Two - Naturally:  Natural Family Planning and You."  We are still putting together the informational videos, but we are also doing testimonials from couples in the diocese.

So meet Melissa and Justin, a hip, happening, and holy couple talk about how using artificial birth control left them empty, but NFP has proven not only to work, but to improve an already great marriage - yes, it can get better!

On The Photo Blog: Baby Lexie

I recently did a photo shoot with a sweet young thing, Lexie.  Go check her out on my photography blog.

And . . . give me a call if you want to capture a child's infancy or other occasions.  Or heck, email me and ask how to improve the snapshots of your munchkin that you're taking.

Alcoholism Meets the Gospel

I am very honored to be able to call as friend the man Colin O'Brien.  Colin is erudite, witty, and very sincere in his witness for the saving power of God.

Please, listen to this talk that he gave during the Archdiocese of Washington DC's "Theology on Tap" at St. Ignatius Church last Saturday.

And share it with someone you know is suffering with alcoholism or has someone they love who is.

Thought o' the Ding Dong Day

And what if an atheist proved me wrong when I breathe my last?  Better to have spent this life in faith, hope, and charity that made it all the more bearable and worthy because if there is no God, then death brings me only the dreamless sleep.  However, if I am right - what does it bring the atheist?
