A bit of future and now

If you can't tell, I'm having fun with this camera! lol
I was able to download a TRIAL version of Photoshop Lightroom 3.  It's awesome.  Like crazy. Awesome.  I hope to get the full version....one day so I can keep the watermark!  Otherwise, no more watermarking.

The name OpenOurEyes Photography that you see watermarked is really for future use, but like seeing how it looks on here.  and no matter what I photograph I will use the same name.

While praying about the name, God kept giving me the phrase Open My Eyes.  And that is really what He has done in my life over this past year with many different things. 

The verses that God gave me: Isaiah 42:6-7, 16

"I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darknes"....... "I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them."  

Anyways....I will discuss more on that later.  You can read as to why I am not divulging all of that now HERE the fist paragraph talks a little on it....

And in the mean time, I am doing photography for no charge for people.  It's just what I have felt God tell me over the past 6mos or so.   I have had people already asking about photography, and YES as my schedule allows I will be doing photo's for people.

I am also (as schedule allows) wanting to help out people who are raising money for Mission Trips, Adoption, etc....I know our church has two Mission Trips coming up....one in Uganda (June) and one in Haiti (Sept - I think).  So how that will work is if you are going on a mission trip or are in the process of adopting and would like to use my services, contact me to set this up.....I would do 30-45min photo sessions for a donation of $100 to go toward your mission trip/adoption fund.  I do not have this all perfectly planned out yet.....but something like one day I will have sessions at Downtown Rogers, another day at Bogle Park....etc  People will pick the location and date they prefer.  After photo's are edited they will get a CD of all edited photos to keep, put on fb or blogs or get printed.  For mission trip checks will be payable to the church with your name/mission in the memo.  For adoption checks will be made out to adoption agency with your name and info in memo (if that's how that can work...not real sure on the adoption one yet as far as specs)....

And here are a few more fun kid pics!  I took these this AM with the 18-105mm DX VR lens.
Dang, my kids are cute.  thanks Jesus
