From Hannah at Shiloh Acres Photography.

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this."
Isaiah 9:6-7

"He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed."
Isaiah 53:3-5

A Flower

I like to plant flower mixes, the only problem being I don't always know the name of each flower.

"The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good."
Proverbs 15:3

I don't have anything new to post right now, so I looked through some of my old pictures and picked a few to post.

A Message to Married Women From "Rebekah"...

"Women should be brave and allow their husbands to fulfill God's will. We should not keep them by our sides, but release them for ministry."

A widow in a nation hostile to the Gospel, who's husband was killed because of his witness.

Fall is Leaving...

 But I haven't posted these pictures yet, so here they are!
Both pictures taken while leaving Camp the end of September.
Have a great day!

"And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew. And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And Peter went out, and wept bitterly."
Luke 22:60-62

Of a very special photo shoot.
I probably will not post any real pictures from this shoot until after Christmas, though.

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil."

Ring Family /Northeast OH

 This family has always been very special to me because it is my family!

 How many of you have ever tried to get good pictures of 22 people?
Well, let me tell you, it isn't the easiest, especially when you are in it too!

Here is my family with my Mom's parents, 3 spouses, 1 special friend, and the newest addition to the family.

This is our family (which includes 3 by marriage)

And the silly picture!
(You can't forget this one)

And last, but far from least, is this picture of my Grandparents with one of their great-grandchildren.

Family- one of the greatest blessings God gives

Rose Alora /Northeast OH

Rose's Mommy really like horses, so she wanted to get some pictures of Rose with a saddle/horse.
So, a couple weeks ago I called her to see if it would work to do it then. (The advantage of being neighbors) It was a little chilly (therefore, it was a speed shoot), and overcast, but I think some of the pictures turned out really well. Rose didn't like being away from Mommy, so she let us know about it. : )
Thanks to Anna for the help with the horse!

Here are six of my favorites.

Let me know what you think.

 Her forehead in these pictures makes me smile. : )

Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
Psalm 127:3-5

Do You Know...

what this is?

Anna: Part 1 /Northeast OH

 Anna is one of my 7 sisters. She has taken violin lessons for a little more than a year and half, and has progressed rapidly. This last Sunday evening, the weather and lighting was beautiful, so we decided to go get some pictures of her with her violin. We had a lot of fun figuring out the best places and poses. We also were racing the sun. It seemed to set very quickly, since we wanted it in the pictures. ; )

So here is part one.
Enjoy, and feel free to comment!
 One of my favorites!

 This was my favorite location!

 Anna's favorite

 Esther's favorite

I love the color in this one!

Part 2 to come soon!
