Ya Just Never Know….

I have to show you these pictures! Because before I downloaded them (right after the shoot), I was having somewhat of a panic attack (okay, a full-fledged panic attack). The panic was the only thing that kept me from crying tho, so I guess it served a purpose!

See, these wonderful, gracious strangers… who had paid good money to have me take pictures of their grandbabies (14 mos & 4 mos) came over trusting me, and I was certain that I didn’t get one photo they would want to keep. The older little girl (Auuuuugh… she was so PRECIOUS) in typical 14-month old fascination with life, never once stopped moving or running — not for a single second. It was the girls’ 1st day back at daycare & their dad & grandparents were tired. And they were such troopers to bring them over for a photo shoot. I thought I’d failed them and felt horrible! But out of the chaos… here’s the cute that was born. Moral of the story & Note to self: Just shoot them being themselves, cute WILL emerge!









About Sandy

I'm Sandy Powers, full-time photographer, doing what I love with my life! My passion is PEOPLE! There is such artistry in people, and I love capturing it. Naturally, portraiture is my passion, but I also love shooting for the art of photography for competitions or exhibit. I once watched an interview with Kim Walker, a well-known Christian worship leader. What she said resonated with me and pretty much describes my own story. In the interview, she said she didn't have to force things to happen for herself. She didn't have to push. She didn't have to overly promote herself or call people and beg them to hire her. In fact, she didn't have to do anything except keep her eyes on Jesus and watch Him bring her destiny to her. That's exactly how I feel. I walk each day by faith, and my eyes are on Him! I have watched in amazement as He has orchestrated circumstance to bring my destiny to me. I thank Him daily for allowing me to not only do what I love, but to use what I love to bless others! So, how is "the destiny" unfolding? Well. . . . My work has been juried into temporary museum and art gallery exhibits, I have been featured in Outdoor Photographer Magazine, my portraiture and fine art have won several awards in national and international competitions, and one of my portraits was selected by an Adobe Lightroom blog as one of the top 50 most stunning black and white photos. I'm a member of Professional Photographers of America and the Texas Photographic Society. Anything else??? Send me a note (Sandy@SandyP.net) any time! I LOVE meeting new people, sharing stories, and best of all, changing the "ordinary" to extraordinary through photography!
