What do we do when we get to a stop sign. I hope and pray we stop. But what about all those stop signs GOD has given us in his word. Do we stop and talk to the almighty. Many years ago GOD defined my purpose for me for him and it is real simple. This is it.........Confirmed over and over as I said no, wait, not now, I can't, I won't, I am afraid of what they will say....and finally I will. My purpose is to move you closer to him with word and images by any means necessary.

Something New

I love what Paul is saying in Phillippians, I love the hope Paul shares with us and the Phillippians about the almighty power of our savior Jesus Christ. This verse has been all over me for months as I try to encourge myself and you in our journey.

I am not the boss

I am not the boss and I can not do what ever I want to do. With that said....please note...I have joined a new movement, and it is about giving away portraits. Yes, I know I said no more free photo sessions, but like I said I am not the boss. On Dec. 12 2009, I will join many other photographers in shooting people who cannot afford a portrait session.
I will feature some of the results on my new photography blog (design in progress)

All in one day-It ain't about ME, it ain't for ME

Today is this hour I know without one doubt, my life, my presence on this earth just ain't about me. The youngest of four this is so hard to admit. My yesterdays were about Claudia, Tammy, Tracy and this precious unborn child. My yesterdays and tomorrows are about being present and being quiet. Quiet so that I may here from GOD. Quiet so that when I speak, others might listen as Tracy did when I called him yesterday at 8 AM. In a businesslike manner I informed him that GOD had told me to tell him to make wreaths, that’s right wreaths for Christmas, to sell, to support his new family. In my arrogance I told Tracy to use wire hangers as the form to support the wreaths. I know nothing, I am nothing but GOD knows Tracy. Tracy shows up hours later with the most beautiful wreaths I have ever seen. He made them without wire hangers. Tracy's land in the country now has a name and this new business of his has a blog. His land will now be called Vella Farms and his business Vella Creations and with GOD beginnings there is always more. Thank You GOD for using me. If you want to see natural, fresh, beautiful wreaths, click on this link

Since it ain't about ME, it must be about Bob and Connie. I can not wait to complete what we have started.

With much Love SonyaLa

I will give you one heart and a new Spirit; I will take from you your hearts of stone and give you tender hearts of love for your God.

A day in the country

Use your imagination, add a house, add a new house, add a hundred years, subtract a hundred years. Who lived here, I wonder.

A tree with HEART

Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
1 Corinthians 13: 4-7

From where I sit, sometimes I can see the water if I move. I hope you enjoy the pictures of Fall on Todd's Lake.

The studio sits directly behind our home.
“If you can achieve your dreams on your own, then your dreams are not big enough.”

A Pumpkin Tree & Virtual Studio Tour

Welcome to my studio. This is where I create. What I create is based on GOD. Most days I am his worker. I enjoy photographing his children and creating things on paper and on the Web.

It is almost Halloween. I can't say this is something we celebrate, but this year I created a Pumpkin Tree, just for FUN.

This is part of the north wall of the studio.

This is half of my huge tackboard. I made it out of soundboard from Lowes. It measure 9 X 4. So much room for inspiration.

Many resources are housed in these two large bookcases. I love to read.

This is me working at my very old Apple computer, which is loaded with Photoshop, Illustrator and Quark software.

Daughters of the KING work together

Please meet my dear friend Leslie Wilson. We got together on Monday for a photo shoot. Leslie needed new photos of herself for social networking. I met Leslie more than ten years ago while attending Nashville State. We both majored in communication design. Leslie also majored in photography. This portrait was shot by me with her camera in my backyard. Leslie color corrected and edited this portrait in photoshop on her mac.
You can find some of Leslie's photography at

I have been working in the studio this week thanks to Father GOD. The MAC computer is working, the camera is working and this laptop is working all at the same time. Not an easy task for me but for GOD it is simple. So I ask you How big is your GOD? Is he as big as you expect him to be? Expect more, for God always has more for you than you could ever imagine.
This logo was designed on a mac, using Illustrator software. I also designed a simple black and white business card for him to use.

Lillian Grace & Elijah D

Swimming, swimming and more swimming. They are each drawn to the water like a fish. It's no wonder since they were both born in the heat of July. Next month we hope to celebrate the 4th, celebrate Lillian's 13th birthday and celebrate Elijah's 10th birthday. We also hope to celebrate a big McCullough family reunion. WOW

New Doors for my design studio!

On Wed. of this week I got beautiful Old New doors for my design Studio. Since this 10 X 24 building behind my house has no windows, or other openings through which to see the great outdoors, I've been working in there with the doors open and the bugs flying in to join me.

Thank you GOD. I am so happy to see out while I work on designs and images for Eastwind Productions.

A new flower bed

The befor image of my first flower bed. One of the few spots at my house that gets 6-8 hours of sun. So many trees, over 40 on this small city lot. I thank GOD every day for such a peaceful place to stay.

A GOD wink from a puppy pile ... More than a year AGO

I searched for my strongest words and spoke them with the greatest conviction to convince them that GOD had and will provide our dog Eddie with everything she needed to take care of her eight pups. And then the tears came, as I spoke the last convicted words. Did I think my GOD would do any less for me.
