Welcome to Cindy Harter's Photography Blog.

I am so glad you have come to visit my Blog. I am a momma, photographer, musician, teacher, singer, friend and a female making my way through this life discovering new parts of me and the world everyday. Come take this journey with me... Through my blog, you can look thru my window into what my eyes, heart and camera lens see on my journey... I can't wait to share it with you !

About Me

My photo
I believe that treasuring the people in our life not only helps the people in our life but helps US. It is so easy to get so caught up in the daily routine of life that we forget the best gifts are the people that live with us. I want to use my camera and vision to show you what you have in the connections to the people you love. It is the greatest treasure we have in this life. When a mom can see how her children listen to her and respond to her she knows her daily energy into her family is building people. When a man can see that the best life has to offer him is in his own house that is a beautiful thing. It is something I can do. I want to be a blessing and that is what heals me ! I love this job ! I truly believe families can be glued together with one really special photograph. It is such a cool thing to walk into a family feel the dynamics that are unique to their special relationships and translate that into a hard copy image. Sometimes we need to have a real image in our hand of what we hope with our heart is true. I want to do that for you ! I am a proud member of the professional photographers association 770.547.1018

Exciting Day

I am still happy about my KODAK POTD. I wish I could have gone to New York to see it on the billboard but it makes me happy that Misty, the momma. got to go :)

An article I wrote about how I view my photography as a way to celebrate and heal family relationships has been featured on two websites this week. http://www.more.com/ and http://www.fabulously40.com/ More Magazine is a great magazine for women 40 and up. I have been inspired by so many stories in this publication for years. I decided to share my photography journey with some of their readers and the editor emailed me today and said they were inspired by my story and featured the article I wrote. It was also picked up by an additional website fabulously 40 ..... It has been a good day...

I hope to glue families together thru my images . It is healing to have something tangible in your hands, a studio c image, that matches what you hope in your heart about the people around us. I have had such great responses from families after they have watched a DVD I put together of their images... My favorite thing is to wait to hear from a family after their session and they have seen their images set to music I chose just for them. I have an extensive music background and LOVE choosing music that I feel reflects the way they love or the session itself.. This is a really fun part of this job.... It makes me so happy to help that feeling they experienced during a shoot with me come back everytime they watch their DVD. Women know when they see thru an image how their child responds to them that all their hardwork matters... Men realize they work hard for these people who love and appreciate them. Husbands are grateful for the kids who are the most adorable little people ever and that their heart could only belong to this woman and these children.... It has been healing for me to use my photography to help put families together in a way I didn't hold mine together... God has a plan and allowing me to use my own mistakes to help others is a gift and healing to me...

Thank you for allowing me to hold up a mirror of your family back up to you... Allowing me to use my camera to reveal what is already there but maybe the rush of life has caused you to not notice... Being grateful for the people God puts in our family is a good thing...and I am so happy to have a part in it!

I am grateful tonight for my five beautiful children and their dad who will always be my oldest friend and all the kindness I have recieved from so many in my path :)

until next time,
