It’s all about your heart…

Stefanie and Homer

Stefanie and Homer

There’s a song… I used it for her senior video (I’ll attach it at the end): ♫ ♪ It’s not about your scars… it’s all about your heart ♪ ♫…. It couldn’t be a more perfect song to tell the story of Stefanie Miller and her beloved horses! Stefanie is one of the “mover and shaker” volunteers with my sister’s Equessense Horse Therapy program for disabled kids. But the amazing thing about horse therapy is that the “therapy” doesn’t stop with just the kids. EVERYONE, professional and lay person alike, finds healing therapy for their own soul

Loving Red Rock

through these animals. And, you could feel it in Stefanie’s life. Of course, she wanted her senior pictures with the horses she has grown to love so much, so we headed out there one spring evening, and captured this amazing, beautiful girl who wants to be a veterinarian, and who so obviously knew she belonged there… and she knew she had a wonderful purpose in the lives of those horses — and the kids — kids whose lives and joy are not about their “scars”, but are all about their hearts! Stefanie knew she was so much a part of all the magic that happened on those grounds. She was radiant, and it was such a joy being with her, celebrating this huge milestone in her life.

Web-9251My favorite part is that Stefanie’s favorite horse is a sweet horse named Homer. He is completely blind. That is so like her to love a “scarred” one with a huge heart the most!

Stefanie… You are amazing! And it has been such an honor to celebrate your high school graduation with these photos. You are going to make an amazing veterinarian, so here’s to the beginning… or I should say… here’s to the next step in that beautiful journey!

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!
