Gayton Youth Mission Trip 2011

  • Novinger, MO

best way to take a break and gain perspective is to stop thinking about yourself and spend some time helping others.  This past week was absolutely insane, in all the good ways. I left sunday afternoon and arrived in Novinger, Missouri at 2am on Monday morning.  The rest of the team, 71 teenagers and 21 adults, had been there since Saturday and they were ready to start helping the Novinger community. What you need to understand is that Novinger is a town of 534 people.  That’s it. We could walk from one end of the town to the other…. easily. The people of Novinger

  • The Business Side

have emailed me about wanting to start their own photography business. They want to know where to start, what to purchase first, how to get clients they love and when they can charge more. WHEW! If I responded to all of those questions thoroughly, it would be a 10 page email!!   When I first started my business, I had no IDEA what I was getting myself into.  I knew that I loved design, I loved photography and I loved people.  Perfect! I’ll just create a business! ….. It’s not that easy. I’m afraid owning a small business requires a HUGE amount of responsibility and there are so many things I wish I had known when I first started out.

  • Meet Michelle | Michelle Cross Photography

to meet possibly the sweetest girl on the planet! Michelle came into my life two years ago in Vegas. It sounds sketchy but just bare with me. We were at WPPI when Jessie and I met this soft spoken, beautiful girl who joined us for dinner one night. The Rainforest Cafe was LOUD and the fake birds were chirping overhead but I think Jessie would agree that that night was one of our favorites!  Michelle’s calm, genuine personality makes it easy for anyone to fall in love with her… immediately. She’s married to the love of her life and together, they look like they just walked out of a magazine.
