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

Jackie's senior pictures :)

Look at her face and tell me how excited you think I am to be chosen to take her picture !!!! :) What a beautiful girl !!! We had great weather , a beautiful girl and a mom who was soooo helpful! Thank you Collette ! We spend so many hours, tears and prayers on our children and then they grow up right under our noses.. It is such a bittersweet time. You know you want them to fly and yet you hate for them to fly... I have been here and it is so exciting to watch the direction our childrens lives take. It takes courage to be a momma ! All we can do is love them as much as we can love them in every stage of their life... Soak her up Collette.... Jackie, you have a momma who loves you ! That is a huge gift !

triplet boys .....

I had the sweetest session today.... Have you ever met someone new and you just knew what kind of human they were ? Well, that is what happened to me today. These precious sweet little boys are blessed with a momma who has a good heart to her bones. It was all over her ! I am learning over and over that being a photographer probably blesses me more than it could any client I serve. This is a woman who LOVES her boys. She carefully explains anything that is running round in their curious little heads... she hugs them when they fall down.... tells them the names of creatures they come accross and makes sure they follow directions and say yes mam... ! They are smart, secure and very polite... She is dedicating the most important chapter to making sure they are all they have the opportunity to be :) She thinks they are a gift to her but one day they will understand the gift she is giving them... I think you can tell I was moved by meeting this very active little group ! I am giving you a few to look at from our session today... Look at the eyes on all these boys ! WOW, beautiful... I hope this will be the first of many sessions. Thank you for choosing me to spend time with today :)

3 beautiful girls....

I had a first with this shoot.... I met them at a location and then we rode together to where we shot the pictures.. It was about a 30 minute ride and these precious little girls sang to me almost all the way there ! It was sooooo special ! You should hear the voices from these two.. Little angels... This was a very special shoot and I hope you can see what I saw in your images. Enjoy a sneek peek :) Thank you for spending your afternoon with me and my camera.

Friends should be treasured !

Tonight I am reflective and so thankful for the good things in my life ! I have so many good friends.... A sweet friend lost her mother this week and found this poem in her mother's room. Her mom wrote these words and wisdom is a gift that sometimes only comes with years of living and walking in this life. It has been a gift to me today along with precious unexpected visits ( you know who you are, thank you !! ) My sweet pixel Chicks... Thank you for sharing my vision and passion for photography and helping me learn this craft and for being willing to take this journey with me. To all my clients... thank you for letting me into your life !

Comes The Dawn

After awhile you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul,
And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning
And company doesn't mean security,
And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts
And presents aren't promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes open,
With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,
And learn to build all your roads
On today because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans, and futures
have a way of falling down in midflight.
After awhile you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure
That you really are strong
And you really do have worth
And you learn and learn....
With every goodbye you learn.
