Just for SO much fun

Web-Madi_Sheep

Madison’s picture was taken when she was all dressed up for her first birthday party. It was an “ordinary” photo with lots of “stuff” going on. Certainly not wall art… until I introduced to her to my sheep.

Sorry to make you squirm photo purists… but… this is so much fun! It is THE perfect escape for me. I absolutely LOVE nature. Especially the animal kingdom part of nature.  I LOVE the ones I can see but can’t touch. They look so sweet and beautiful, but… well… you can’t typically get close to them. Or, hug them. Ahhh, but you CAN! In my imagination and through my composite skills.

My tastes for “wall art” have evolved somewhat over the years. My heart is not quite as stirred anymore by straight up landscapes, ever how heart stopping they are. And… I have done so many portraits over the years that it’s hard to make them stand out as super special. I mean, blow up, print on canvas, hang on the wall. THAT super special. So what I am doing now is taking my favorite nature photos over the years, and my favorite portraits over the years and combining them to create an art piece that says, YES! Hang me on the wall… in canvas… HUGE. And every time I look at them, they take me to a place of sweet love for both my “babies”, and for the experiences I had taking the original nature photo.

My kids love it. Now, they are giving me fabulous ideas of things they want me to try and help me achieve. Yayyyyy! Quality time. Love Language. Resulting in art. Ohmygosh… what could be better!

A glorious memory of a day at the beach with the kids. Again, lots of “stuff” keeping this from being all that interesting. But what kid wouldn’t love to soar thru the air with my Avian Angel 🙂

THIS… is SO CARSON!!! His heart is so tender towards every thing and every one. But the original photo was of him hugging my dog, Ellie… but… ummm… Ellie’s butt was the front and center subject of the photo. Until he had a chance to get up close and personal with my award winning baby deer photo.

Madison… she would do this. Play so sweetly and comfortably with a baby wild animal at her side. She is fearless, and makes friends with ANYONE and ANY THING. To me, this radiates Madison much more than the original photo playing in my back yard

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!
