Making a Beautiful Day ♥

You would think…. during the “senior season” that auto pilot would kick in and the sessions would blur together in photographic similarity. But no! I am amazed at no matter how many senior sessions I do, each one is so very unique and special. They are all different, depending on the personality of the senior. This year has Web-0330been a BLAST! I have had not only the most beautiful girls (no boys this year) to photograph, but they have all been so FUN (did I mention stunningly beautiful???)! Each one looking for a different feel to their photos. Each one expressing their own very individual and amazing styles and interests. My heart and soul are FULL with love for the girls — and for the memories I shared with them on “their day” !!

Tuesday night was one of those sessions that I am still floating from. Emily Carroll! I’ve known her and adored her family since she was just a tiny little girl. I still can’t believe she’s graduating! As I photographed her, I had these surreal moments when I looked through my lens and it was Emily,Web-0448 the adorable little girl I saw, crying over some childhood sorrow that had her crawling up in her mommy’s lap for comfort. The next moment, she looked like a glamorous magazine cover! So much love and admiration for her welled up in my heart as we “played”.

So… there are so many of her photos that I think are so amazing… I think this time, I’ll just include the video and share them all.

It was indeed a BEAUTIFUL day!!!!!!!!!

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!
