Radiance in Person

Web-9430I know I tend to gush about my clients. Each one is so genuinely special to me, and each one brings an experience that is unique — because each person is unique. I met Taylor years ago when a group from our church went on a week long mission trip together to Joplin, Missouri to help with the tornado relief. I especially connected with her because even as young as she was, she had such a radiant joy in her. There was something so rarely pure… and kind… and well… just beautiful!

So what an honor and a BLESSING to get to take her senior photos. Her mom, Kyle; and her sister, Brook and I Web-9432traipsed all over our Northeast corner of San Antonio, fussing over our beautiful “Rapunzel” princess all the way. We had so much fun celebrating her glorious hair, making sure it was “just so”! It is so pretty, and I loved, loved LOVED the artistry it brought to her photos. But what I loved the most is how easy it was to capture the Web-9488radiance that literally beams from her eyes and smile.

Off she goes at the end of the summer to Oklahoma State University where both of her parents graduated, Ten hours away from home. I have no doubt that the hole that her absence will leave in her family will be HUGE… I’m already praying for them. But Taylor? Ohmygosh… I have a feeling everything you touch will be as golden as you are!

Thanks for a most AMAZING memory of our day together! I just can’t even say how much I admire you — and how glad I am that you came into my life ♥

Her family is huge in to disc golf :)

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!
