The images below, from a weekly religion assignment, were taken at Friendship Baptist Church in Atlanta. The Sunday morning that I shot these images the church was welcoming their new pastor, Rev. Dr. Timothy Boddie. Boddie is one of only 6 pastors to preside at the church.

Friendship was organized in 1866 and is Atlanta’s first black Baptist independent congregation. Originally the church could not buy property and first worshipped in a boxcar.

The light in the church is amazing! Below are my favorite images.

I love this look of being caught…

I once hated when people looked at me when I was taking their picture but sometimes it works and I love this man and his warm smile.

I love the next two images of this sleeping girl…. the glasses on her forehead, her body language and the light really make this image special (for me at least).
