Amazing Reward for an Amazing Memory!

In case you can’t tell from my website & if you know me… from just knowing me… I LOVE photographing children being children! There is something so pure and soul filling about a still photo of a child just celebrating childhood! It’s my goal in every photograph I take of a child to show that celebration and purity of soul.

This is an image of my granddaughter, Abby, on a very happy day together at a Texas beach. She was just being Abby. My heart is warm and happy remembering the memory of that day.

So today, the memory has been made even sweeter when I was notified that this image was juried into a Texas Photographic Society photography exhibit called “Celebrations”. And even sweeter still, it was awarded an Exhibit Honorable Mention by the juror, Harvey Stein, who is a New York photographer, lecturer, author, and university teacher with credentials a mile long – credentials that make my heart flutter imagining what it would be like to be so accomplished!

The exhibit will be on display at the A Smith Gallery of Art in Johnson City from November 23rd thru December.

I love love LOVE you, Abby Kristine! Thanks for the memory, and for celebrating childhood every day the way you do!!!

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 ( any time! I LOVE meeting new people, sharing stories, and best of all, changing the "ordinary" to extraordinary through photography!
