MEXICO MISSIONS!

What a wild summer! Wedding almost every weekend (check out Mosaic Photography for some of the latest weddings I’ve done), seniors, family sessions, and two mission trips! I couldn’t have asked for a better summer. It’s crazy to think in just one month I’m heading to South Korea! That’s right, you heard me right. I’m off to Seoul to teach English for one year. I’m excited to head back to my heritage roots and get a taste of the culture where my mom was born. Keep checking back for my latest adventures in Seoul.

Okay, back to the title of this post. I just got back from photographing an unbelievable missions trip in Mexico with Clint Rogers Ministries. My heart was broken by the people, culture, healings, and the miracles Jesus did. The team consisted of thirty people from all over the US to help preach, minister, and pray for the lost and sick. Our lives were changed as we saw hundreds of people came to the Lord along with the countless miracles the Lord did…the blind can now see, the deaf can hear, tumors disappeared before our eyes, and pain left at the name of Jesus! I get goose bumps the more I think and write about this! I was honored to be apart of the media team on this trip. God ministered more to me by capturing the miracles and hearts of the people than if I were to ever pray for a single person to be healed. What an honor the Lord gave me to portray His heart and His people the way He sees them.


These were the dorms we stayed in at the orphanage the first 2 days.


Prayer and worship every morning…

This expression is priceless!

Nothing can separate the joy of hermanas (sisters):). Their eyes sparkle…

Love all the emotions going on here…

The second day, a few team members helped feed children at a dump. These children literally live at what used to be a garbage disposal. The houses are built on the garbage that has been packed down by a layer of dirt. The woman that feed these children explained that if a really hard thunderstorm comes, the houses would just wash away. The people that live here sift through the garbage as soon as it’s dumped to pick out the best “garbage” to try to earn money by selling it to the stores. To think one person’s trash is another person’s treasure…what a different world!


Two boys playing at the dump…

Joy in the midst of poverty…


No longer bound by chains…

Tears were streaming down my face as I captured these images at the crusade…There is nothing like a mother’s embrace.

Such a story to tell with these hands…so powerful…

Being touched by God’s love and power. This woman was deaf and now can hear!

This is one of my favorite images. I somehow connected with this man as I found him kneeled to the cement, completely oblivious to his surrounding, heart exposed, experiencing something greater than himself. He was on the other side of the fence beyond the crusade with no one to see him (except for the photographer;)Only him and God face to face as if to say, “Here I am God! Only you and me, I surrender all I am no matter if anyone sees me. All that matters is you!”

I just had to throw in my artistic pictures! Gotta love the smoke…

Look at that dramatic sky!

Saved the best for last. This one is my ABSOLUTE favorite picture of the trip! The vibrant colors…the smoke…the lense flare…the message…the passion…

The Mexico Missions team! You guys are such a blessing!

Anonymous - What can one say to this photographer, other than, that God has given her more then just the gift of being an artist. He has given her an eye to see what He sees and we are blessed to get a glimpse of that through her captiavting pictures. Her work shall be at the top of my recommendations. Thank you Tanya for being good at what you do best!
