River baptism and family picnic

I went out to Maryville recently to make pictures at a family picnic and river baptism. It was very cool, a slice of times gone by in America. The event was put on by East Maryville Baptist Church and I’m guessing about 400 people showed up, kids played and the adults talked. Only a handful of people were baptized in the river but there was nice photos everywhere I looked It was something that I have not ever had the chance to experience and made some images I really like.
