Welcome to my site. I take photos, and learn life lessons. I hope you are inspired by what you find.

Ezra 7:10

“Now Ezra had determined in his heart to study the law of the LORD, obey it, and teach its statutes and ordinances in Israel.”

Just a Girl...

… does she even know that she just changed the world?

Pat Summitt…

Mia Hamm…

Billy Jean King…

Serena Williams…


What do all of these people have in common… You guessed it… They all have two X-chromosomes. In laymen’s terms (which is what I understand…) they are all girls.

What else do they all have in common… they all changed the world in some way. Most of them are sports heroines. Pat Summit is the all time win leader for women’s college basketball. She has two Olympic medals, a silver as a player and a gold as a coach. Mia Hamm is the third leading goal scorer in the history of women’s soccer (she was number one when she retired). She has 4 NCAA championships, 2 World Cup championships, and 2 Olympic gold medals.

Billy Jean King was the winner of the famous tennis match that pitted men vs. women. She also won 39 grand slam titles, and was ranked number one in the world. She went on to become a leading voice for player compensation and gender equality in sports. Serena Williams is the greatest female tennis player ever… and arguably the best tennis player ever, male or female. She’s been ranked number one in the world 8 times, totaling 319 weeks. She has 39 grand slam titles, and 4 Olympic gold medals.

Mary… well, the Mary I’m thinking about this time of year was the mother of our LORD and SAVIOR.

Matthew 1:18

“This is how the birth of JESUS CHRIST came about: HIS mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the HOLY SPIRIT.”

Mark 1:30-33

“But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with GOD. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name JESUS. HE will be great and will be called the SON of the MOST HIGH. the LORD GOD will give HIM the throne of his father David, and HE will reign over the house of Jacob forever; HIS kingdom will never end.”

On November 20, I was honored to do team and individuals for another bunch of ladies that I’m sure will change the world in their own ways. The Fort Osage Women’s Basketball team and I met to do a poster/banner shoot. The team had some great ideas on poses, and worked very well with me to create some interesting team photos. The seniors that did their individuals were very respectful, and willing to try different things.

Coach Thompson, you have done a great job with these ladies, and I’m excited to see them play throughout the season. Good luck and thank you for letting me be part of the fun!
