gallery of grace // portrait session

I was so excited when the leaders of the women’s group, Gallery of Grace, contacted me to photograph a portrait session for them. My friend Chris assisted me on the shoot (he’s also a photographer himself and you can find his work here. =)). Our shoot was centered on Jesus: each of the girls had to write a word to describe their lives before they knew Jesus and one word after knowing Him.  I got to capture the beauty and radiance of these girls as they depicted their lives filled with the love of Christ and it was so meaningful & touching. This is what ensued…

I found the concept for the shoot to be so meaningful and I wanted to contribute! So Chris took these of me…

Intense, I know. But don’t worry, this was taken 30 seconds before ;).

It was such an honor to photograph and get to know each of these wonderful women and I’m so happy that we got to create such a rewarding experience together.
