Playing… I mean, WORKING, with Kelly :)

Web-9692Surely it can’t be considered work when it’s so much fun, right? I was just thinking when my boys were seniors, the whole “senior pictures” thing wasn’t even a big deal. Maybe more for girls, but not so much for guys. But I still remember how emotional and bittersweet that whole transition of life was. You realize there will be one less person who will always be at the dinner table because they will most likely be away. No more “every night at a game or practice”, and you Web-9703wonder: Will they have so much fun they won’t want to come back? Will it be the same? But then… you’re so proud and so excited for them. It is surreal the intense emotions!

The senior pictures portion of the transition is like a special day to pay tribute to how special they are — how beautiful and “princess”-worthy they are. And it’s a day to see how many ways you can put them in settings that say, “This is my baby at this time in her life, and I want to remember it and in some way hold on to it forever!” That’s the fun part!

Especially with someone like Kelly! She is an amazingly accomplished athlete, taking her Churchill team to the regional soccer playoffs as a goalie. So, although she is Web-9791strikingly beautiful and feminine, she was willing to do anything! Climb up windmill ladders, lay on railroad tracks and in piles of bluebonnets. Switch outfits in the blink of an eye — certainly too fast for anyone to take notice 🙂 And best of all! She wanted her best friend, Ally, to be honored in her photos, which makes her SUCH a girl after my own heart! That dog was PRECIOUS!!!!!

It was such a fun day! And I love the end result that came from our connection! Best best BEST wishes, Kelly… and Mom, Laura! You guys have so much to be proud of!!!!!







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!
