Shooter's Comments: Church services are usually difficult to cover because I want to remain as unobtrusive as possible. But I saw this little girl before the service started and talked with her parents about taking her photo. Kids in church: they're all over the place. So, I just waited in the rear of the sanctuary for Fernanda to do her thing.
