It's Friday and time for another installment of the many furry creatures to be found at the Lynchburg Humane Society!  As this volume will show, sometimes the humane society finds themselves with animals other than dogs and cats - just check out KiKi below for example!   In the past rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, even chickens have all made their way to the humane society.  They do their best to find the best home for each creature that comes through the doors.

I hope you all enjoy your weekend!  Once again, I'm headed up to my home state of Connecticut for sister Vanessa's bridal shower!  Don't worry there will be pictures!

SENIORS | Quintora, Class of 2014

It was through cheerleading that I was introduced to Quintora a few years ago at the National Artistic Sports Academy.  I was taking a tumbling class two years ago along with several E.C. Glass High School cheerleaders from their squad of which she was one!  I got to see Quintora a few more times as I photographed a few tumbling and practice sessions and a game day with the Glass cheerleaders that same season. 

Taylor, another of Jae Studios' 2014 seniors, was also a member of the high school squad and referred Quintora to Jae Studios!  I am so glad!  If you can't tell from Quintora's images below, this girl really loves to be in front of the camera and she is really fantastic at it!  We had such a fun time in downtown Lynchburg earlier this fall - it is one of my new favorite sessions!  I also got to meet her mom for the first time in person and there was a lot of laughter and chatting about her plans for college after she graduates!  I think she's going to do fantastic!

Congratulations Quintora, Class of 2014!

CHEER | 2013 Chancellor's Cookout & Fan Fest

Welcome back to Liberty University for the new academic school year!  Of course, fall means a new football season as well.  We opened last week away at Kent State University in Ohio and came away unfortunately, with a loss.  Today is the home opener of the Liberty University football season - Flames versus the Monmouth State University Hawks in Williams Stadium this evening! 

Two weeks ago, the Chancellor's cookout prepared the incoming freshman and transfer students for the upcoming football season.  The chancellor and his wife, Alan York (the voice of the Flames), Jeff Barber (Athletic Director), and head coach Turner Gill all spoke about Liberty football traditions.  The cheerleading squad performed a short routine that highlighted stunting, tumbling, and dance.  They led cheers on the sidelines and the fight song.  All, while debuting their new uniforms as well!

Here are some images from the Chancellor's Cookout & Scrimmage! Don't forget to cheer the Flames on to victory in just a couple of hours!
