Christianity Today - Surrogacy Cover Story - My Body - Not My Baby

There is a real debate going on out there. Are fertility treatments ethical?

I know where I stand, while I carry my second child at 44, "born" in a petri dish. Every time I feel his little kicks, I know I've been blessed.

What do you think?

Then, of course, there are several images from the story that couldn't make the published story. I love them so much anyway - have a look.

 Surrogacy builds relationships that most of us will never understand. Jenna Miller (right) mother of three, developed a serious health risk after carrying her first daughter. When she was ready to grow her family she found Jennifer Nelson (left) who carried Ryan and Faith. Jenna and her family of three drove from Waco to Houston and back many times a week to keep up with Jennifer's pregnancy. The time they shared created a bond that can't be broken.

 At the center of it all is Gayle Garrett (right) the founder of Surrogate Solutions, a faith based Surrogacy agency in Waco, Tx. Together with Meg Watwood (left) and Melissa O'Hare (center.) The trio have given birth to 7 non-biological children. Many time over they've given families the gift of a life.

LifeSeason collateral for Door Number 3

Door Number 3 came to me with some absolutely gorgeous ideas about the stills they wanted to create. Raw All Natural ingredients that look like Art, not products. Dramatic and beautiful. It was an ambitious one day schedule, but the results are breathtaking.

Published - March Issue of Edible Austin

These past few of months have been wonderful I have had the opportunity to photograph some amazing people in Austin and near by. People who make, grow and eat food. And people who make, sell and drink libations. Edible Austin is a charming collection of food and food related stories with exception photography sprinkled throughout. The next issue, out May 1st, will have a number of images I shot for them including the cover of Kooper Family Rye and thoughtful feature on Hops and Grain Brewery. You can see that work here in my new work section.
