A Tribute to 2 Furry Family Members – Smokey and Chief


It was a tough 90 days for me and started on the December 19, 2009 the day I lost Smokey after 13 great years together!  Then on March 25, 2010 I lost Chief!  Both to cancer, but different types of cancer.  I miss you guys but I know you are still with me in my heart and soul! 🙂  See ya both again someday at the “Bridge!”  In the meantime, have fun playing together!  🙂 

Smokey my fuzzy, sometimes goofy bestest friend ever, will always be with me and he has truly touched my life in a very very special way!  From the first time he looked up at me he instantly won me over with those wonderful eyes of his and that special loving look of his! :)  If you care to read more about Smokey, you can do so here:  http://wp.me/Pr4IS-bl

This is one of my favorite pics of Smokey!  🙂

Chief was a very special dog, companion, friend, teacher, mentor, family member, who I shared a very special bond with! He lived a great life for 11 1/2 years, he touched a lot of lives, and was loved by all that met him! Both my son and myself fell in love with him the first time we met him. This was so common, he was just one of those dogs that you instantly fall in love with, not because of the beauty he was graced with, and he was beautiful, but for that wonderful energy he had about him!

Chief in his lifetime got to do and see so much, more than lots of dogs and even more than some people get to experience. He was a Therapy Dog who helped a lot and I mean a LOT of people.

Chief had such a wonderful calming and healing energy to him! He got to work with cancer patients, elderly in nursing homes, adults and children alike! He helped many to retrieve their lives by giving them hope and love! He was just that way! Always giving what he could give!

Sunshine and her Pet Human! :)


Sunshine brought her pet human Katie to our studio for some portraits a few weeks back!  Don’t let 1st impressions fool you!  🙂  I know, at first glance Sunshine may look a bit “intimidating” but she is really a sweetheart!  Katie is too!  🙂 

They were both great to work with and fun to photograph something a little different then the “norm.”  🙂  

Thank you Sunshine and Katie for choosing Visions Photography!

   

 

 

 

As Always have a great day and Stay Positive!

Simplicity Show – A Smith Gallery


This is just too cool!  I had to share!  🙂  Back to back shows!  “Doing a Happy Dance”  LoL 

My image “White Moth” shown below has been accepted into A Smith Gallery’s Simplicity Competition juried by Robert Hecht.    Of the 571 submitted images, 49 were selected for the show. 

You can see all of the accepted entries here:  https://asmithgallery.com/Simplicity_Accepted_Imag.php With the quality of the accepted entries, I feel truly honored to have been accepted into this show!  🙂 

This is the 6th gallery show in which I’ve had fine art images accepted. 

Dates for the show are February 25 to April 17, 2011, Opening Reception is February 26, 2011 4 to 7 PM at A Smith Gallery in Johnson City, Texas. 

As I stated above, I’m currently  in another show at A Smith Gallery, Romance. 

THE STORY BEHIND THIS IMAGE  (Every picture tells a story)

The image was taken almost exactly two months after loosing a precious furry friend by the name of Chief to cancer.  (Chief’s story)  I had been thinking about him a lot that week.  I was in my bathroom doing what people normally do in a bathroom and felt an energy change, a good energy change, full of warmth! 

This white moth just came out of “nowhere” and started fluttering around my head and finally landed by the shower.  Hard to explain but it just “felt” like Chief was there with me in the form of this moth.  He landed in the perfect place as the late afternoon light was pouring into the bathroom and bouncing off the mirror to the spot in which it landed. 

My camera is always just a few steps away, grabbed it from the kitchen  and took a couple of shots of this white little guy.  Yes he was still waiting for me when I got back with the camera and right lens.  🙂  Anyway very soon after taking the shots, the moth flew away into the hallway, and I never saw him again…disappearing as quickly as he had appeared.  (I included my favorite image of Chief at the end of this post.)

White Moth

I LOVE being a photographer, and LOVE being able to use my skills for both my portrait and wedding clients, and creating family heirlooms for them.  Precious memories of a lifetime!   For me there is no better feeling than to see the happy faces on my clients when they see their images for the first time.

I also LOVE doing fine art photography and participating in gallery shows.  The Fine Art work I do helps keep me inspired to keep producing quality images for my clients, but it also helps me to consistently improve my skills, my understanding of light and composition and how they work together.  Photography is truly a life long journey, you never stop learning. 

Photography is my reason for being here, I truly believe it is why I was put on this earth! 

Chief

As Always have a great day and Stay Positive!
