Oh, it's June...time for a quick hello.

Sorry you haven't received an update from me for a long time, but I'm afraid that camp has taken over my life (at least on week days). From the time I finish breakfast til the time my head hits the pillow, I've got a camera around my neck or a laptop on my lap. Every day is busy, busy, busy and even though everyone technically gets a break from 3:30-5 pm, I use that time to upload pictures, edit them, start on slide shows for the weekly DVD, and edit video footage. Often at night I'm needed to take pictures of the nightly skits, pool parties, and dance parties.

My job really is amazing, and I still can't believe that I'm getting paid to take pictures! It's a dream come true, but it's also stressful, so please pray for wisdom, strength, and endurance for me as the summer goes on. Thank you!!

Camp life may be hectic, but it's also fun and rewarding. Derek knows how to make campers smile with the funny stories and jokes he loves to tell.

It's great having another photographer around, even though she's a counselor so she spends most of the time with her cabin kids. Sarah is such a loving friend and I've enjoyed talking about photography stuff with her. She's pictured above surrounded by the girls she counseled last week.

So that's what I've been up to this past month, and what I get to do for another seven weeks. It's a blessing being able to work here at Pleasant Vineyard Ministries Camp, and already God has worked in the lives of campers and staff in so many ways. I'll try to pop in every once in while to share what's up with me, but for now, ta-ta. xx

Hi Jess,

I'm having a problem with my photography blog. I changed the name and URL and it seems to be causing a problem for my followers. I don't want to lose you! My new name is His Print Photography and the new URL is Would you mind going to your reading list to see if I am showing up there. If not, would you mind adding me there or going to my blog to refollow? This is such a pain and I hate to bother you!

Thanks for your help!
