    I took pictures for "The Lord's Child" this past Easter weekend. Afterwards I am now their official photographer. The local newspaper requested photos and I sent about six, and these were the two they published in the Tuesday paper after Easter.

    This is of course a scanned copy of the newspaper article.

    Very cool. Damm shame they didn't give you the credit line though! Did you ask for it? That would have been helpful as tearsheets.
    Our local paper will say " Staff Photo by" if it's one of there's or "Photo By" if it's from someone else. ( If ask for) Which I always do.

    Thanks everybody, I'm very excited



    I did tell them who took the photos as well as give them the captions for the photos which they re-worded. I don't know why they didn't give me credit for the pictures though, that does suck. I'm happy they're in the paper though.

    Hopefully now you get "by lines", that is a epic win for anyone.

    Good job!

    what was your original caption? Cause their caption is very weak.

    Ehhh, it seems like your typical caption. It just has to describe what's going on in the picture.

    Nothing special, just a basic overview of who was in the picture. I would have rather seen Photo by ........ rather than my chopped captions
