This summer, I took on a new challenge while trying to get more involved with my church (Second Baptist Church Houston). I signed up to be a condo leader on the church’s high school Beach Retreat in Pensacola, FL. I’ve always heard great things about how lives are changed each year at the retreat, so I threw my name in the hat hoping that I too might make a difference in even one kid’s life.

I was pretty nervous going into the trip, because I had never been a chaperone of any kind in the past. But alas, I survived!

The trip there and back was two full days on a bus, with many bus rides in between. We had some sun and rain, and lots and lots of sand. I saw laughter and tears, high-fives and hugs.

The best part of the trip though, was witnessing lives being changed. Over 450 high school students (and a few adults too) made professions of faith and were baptized. It was a beautiful thing to witness!

Being a photographer, I, of course, couldn’t leave home without my camera. So I have quite a nice collection of photos to share from the trip.

Enjoy!

On May 15th, I spent the day providing media coverage for the Greenlight for Girls (g4g) event at Space Center Houston. The event was held to spark interest with girls (ranging from middle school to early high school age) in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through the international g4g program. On hand to help with the event were scientists, engineers and various volunteers from a local industry site.

Throughout the day, the girls participated in hands-on experiments and heard from a few guest speakers including Greenlight for Girls international project manager Jelena Lucin, U.S. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee and retired NASA astronaut Brian Duffy.

Enjoy these photos from the event.
