I think some of the best parties are surprise parties, and surprise parties that aren’t a birthday party. Like this one! The pastor’s at Hope Carson have served their church and community for the last 10 years, so it was only fitting that a surprise Luau was thrown in their honor. I have grown up as a pastor’s kid and I have seen my parents bear more burdens than most. There is a whole group of people that rely on them, look up to them and are consistently asking them to give. It’s hard work! That’s why this was so special to me because thank yous are rare (even for a pastor) and a thank you this big is really amazing. I had such a great time capturing the Polynesian dancers and really the love that filled that party.
Thank you, Hope Carson, for asking me to be a part of the fun. I hope your community continues to grow in faith and in love for one another.
