Photograph by Father’s Heart Photography (Linda Cornett-Ching)

I am a wife and a mom of two grown-up kids.  I am passionate about a great many things.  God, my family, and my friends to name a few.  I have been blessed to pursue some of my dreams.  I write for an online Christian magazine, lead a ladies bible study, and do photography.

Photography has opened up a whole new world to me.  My passion continues to grown even as I challenge myself to learn how to get better at it.  This is something I have long wanted to do but with film cameras, I found it to be a tad complicated.  With the new DSLR cameras available, it makes photography a SNAP!

I am inspired by the world around me.  My wish is that my pictures tell a story, or a poem, or are a piece of art.  If they inspire or encourage others, then I am deeply grateful.

My Heavenly Father has loved the hurt out of me and now I see the world as though for the first time.  It brings me tremendous joy to captue as much of it through my camera lens as I can.

Live the life you’ve imagined

From the desk of Jennifer Lee:

All my childhood I thrived on passion, whether it was passion of swinging on the swings at the park or coloring within those lines in the coloring books. To take something ordinary and make it your own is what passion is about. I grew up always wanting to do something great with my life. I could be a doctor, a veterinarian, an actress, something that the world would notice me for. As I grew older and life pressed on, I realized I didn’t need to be noticed, I realized then it was my passion and dream to notice people.
As soon as I could afford my first camera it stuck by me constantly, never left my side.
All my friends always laughed because when most girls were glued to their purses and lip-gloss, I was glued to my trigger button.

My passion and dream is to capture the still images of life’s essences and with each photo, a part of me feels complete.

I am where I am supposed to be.
