What a weekend! Starting Thursday evening our church kicked off a Clean Slate weekend. Clean Slate is similar to Extreme Home Makeover, but on a smaller scale. Last year we did two homes on two separate weekends. This year we transformed 5 homes in one weekend…with nearly 500 volunteers from the church. We partnered with Rosa Parks Elementary school to pick the families. Following the big reveals we hosted a block party to honor the families and celebrate with neighborhors. Each home had a team…and a team photographer. Sunday morning the church media team put together some short slideshows of the homes, but I wanted to make one a bit longer for my team to enjoy. There are some sneak peek pics at first and then the slideshow is much longer with more “before” & “after” pictures….
Our family consisted of two incredibly kind parents and their four small children. They asked that the garage be made over to better ‘serve’ their kids and all the neighborhood kids that enjoy playing there….the garage got a makeover, the yard got incredible landscaping and all the rooms got a bit of a facelift…

And to brag a little bit on a friend….Jeanette was in the first SnapShop class and she did family portraits for the family. She did an incredible job. This is a glimpse of some of the family pics and the family’s reaction to seeing them. (Have I mentioned that about 7 recent SnapShop grads are starting photography businesses…fun stuff.)

Chris was super busy with the weekend, namely the celebration party at the end. Biggest Brother helped him with set-up then had the “job” of helping me with take pictures. The media team made him his own “Event Photographer” badge, he was pretty cute…and serious about it.
