Mondays with M – Moments that are close to our heart

If you follow our work, you know that our tagline is, “… because moments matter,” and that is the way that we approach all of work, with a keen eye for capturing those moments that you will treasure for a lifetime.  But what you may not know is that while all moments are important to us, there are some that we hold very close to our hearts.  We are from New Orleans, and when you’re from New Orleans, well, food is what you do.  We like to eat it, talk about it, celebrate it, celebrate with it, photograph it, share it … and so on. New Orleanians can start out at breakfast talking about what we’re going to have for lunch, and can linger over cocktails at lunch talking about what we’re going to have for dinner well into the dinner hour.  Needless to say, the thought of someone going hungry is just about unthinkable to Steve and me, and we, therefore, dedicate several shoots a year to projects that help eliminate hunger in our community.  One of those events took place last Friday, the Lenten Fish Fry sponsored by the Lantern Light Ministries and held at the St. Joseph Rebuild Center. With assistance from Chefs Matt Murphy and Justin Kennedy on the Fish Fry Committee, meeting the goal of 2,000 dinners was well within reach.  And then the rains came!  And it rained, and it rained, and it rained.  Our feet got wet, but the spirits were not dampened.  Although things did not go as planned, all had a wonderful time and shared a wonderful sense of community.  We received a note from Sister Vera Butler yesterday indicating that the guests of the Rebuild Center will still benefit from the event as they will be served a few dinners with Fish Fry and all the trimmings this week … an amazingly bright outlook!   Helping Feed the Homeless at St. Joseph Rebuild CenterChef Matt MurphyChef Justin Kennedy of Parkway BakerySt. Joseph Rebuild CenterSt. Joseph Rebuild CenterSr. Vera Butler
