    Thanks so much for these. Brought tears to my eyes, remembering my family’s years amongst Old Order Anabaptists.

    Wow some beautiful pictures! A little different than I have of childhood memories. The sisters dresses are longer and much more colorful. And there are many more smiles.

    I just saw a slideshow of your photos from a link on Facebook. I wanted to take a minute to tell you that your photo coverage of the conference is out of this world and the quality of the images is outstanding. This is exactly how an event should be shot. Viewers are drawn, to each and every image. Great work! Thank you for the opportunity to look at your photos.

      Mike, thank you so much for your kind words. It means a lot to me. I wanted to capture this group as I saw them – warm, unique and yet normal, a real community, and people of faith. It was an very positive experience for me.
