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

sweet.. sweet.. sisters..

we had so much fun !! They are cute , cute, cute !

I have the kindest best neighbors anyone could ever ask for and these are their girls. I have been enjoying spending some much needed time with my kids but had an empty morning and called my neighbors and and asked if I could borrow her girls for some practice. I have some fabric I have been wanting to try out as a background and it worked perfectly for these two little girls. I thought I would put a few on my blog for you all to enjoy !

Gifts should be celebrated..

What do all these images have in common ? They are all precious new people under two weeks old. Babies are always gifts ! Every human life deserves a celebration. There is nothing sweeter than tiny toes, fingers, the tops of their little heads and squeaky noises babies make in that first few weeks. I enjoyed that time so much with my five children and it makes me so happy to come into the houses of my clients when they are celebrating a new person and capture all the things about them that make them who they are. Babies truly are the most wonderful way to start people. Even when they are unexpected it is all in God's plan and they are always a gift . I have always been so thankful that my children were given to me. I know God could have given them to anyone and He chose me . It is so good and right to marvel at the miracle of being chosen to be a momma. Enjoy a few newborn images I have been blessed to take..

Atlanta , Ga.... doors to churches

Have you ever felt the need for safety? Today I began to try to remember times in my life when I felt safe. Where does safety live. I thought about all the church services I have been in and felt completely wrapped in safety and security. I have a real curiousity with the entry ways of churches and with the thoughts from childhood in my head I got in my car and started in my little town where I have always loved these red doors at this local church and how they are so welcoming. I brought my camera so I could freezeframe how the doors made me feel. It was so nice I got to thinking about a trip I made to the High Museum on Peachtree st last week and how much I admired all the church entry ways to the many different Churches on Peachtree st. I had my camera and decided to just go in search of these little peices of safety. I was blessed to be raised by a good Daddy who is also a preacher. What a gift to have been given a sheltered life where I was surrounded by Godly compassionate people.

Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest

Off to Atlanta.....

I photographed every set of entry doors to every church from Buckhead to Downtown. Each unique... Each beautiful... I love what happens to souls inside. I thought I would share just a few...

Psalm 56

Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up: he fighting daily oppresseth me.

Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou Most High.

What time I am afaid, I will trust in thee.

In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.

Every day they wrest my words; all their thoughts are against me for evil.

They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.

Shall they escape by inquity? In thine anger cast down the people, O God.

Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book ?

When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know: for God is for me.

In God will I praise his word: in the Lord will I praise his word.

In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.

Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.

For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?

I am learning !! YEY!!!

I have spent the last few days in Huntsville, Alabama. This is the hometown to Heather and Ben Bookout. They are not only kind, good, Jesus filled people but have a very sucessful Photography business. Heather's work had inspired me long before I knew she had a heart for teaching other photographers. Some of my Pixel Chick girls and I planned a trip to go hear what Heather had to say and learn together. I can't wait to share with you all that I am learning. I am still taking in all the information that was given and I can't wait to apply what I have learned and make my business better for all of us ! I absolutely love the photography business. What an honor take pictures of precious families and have the opportunity to get to know and record the sweet relationships of the families that come to me. I just love it ! I have been given encouragement and wisdom to know how to be even more effective and I am so thankful. I know God has a plan for each of his children and there are those that I have met along the way that I just have no doubt about who put them in my path and why... My Pixel Chicks hold that place in my heart. I am so thankful for good women who are also photographers who are willing to walk this path with me sharing the joy of photography..... and I am also sooooo thankful for those people that have walked on ahead of me and God makes sure my path crosses theirs and has laid it on their heart to be generous and kind enough to shine a light so I don't trip on the path they just went over. Thank you Heather ! The light is shining and I can see my path more clearly :) Thank you for being open and willing to God using you to help others like me.

sweet friends enjoying and taking in Heather's beautiful work ..

Heather working hard showing us how to use fabric in a session... She is a genious with fabric !

My sweet new friend. I am so grateful that Heather felt led to share her gifts and time with so many and I was one of the recievers :) She has so many talents and is so willing to give to others.. YEY, for kindness and Jesus working thru his children.

sweetest family :)

Leigh Ann and I have been friends for years. I have had several shoots with her sweet family. I always look forward to it ! She and Chip are such great parents. These little boys are in great hands. Leigh Ann is so patient with all the boys in her life. She is beautiful inside and out and you should hear her sing ! I miss hearing her sing... I really like hearing her speaking voice because it sounds just like she sings. She is a gifted musician and her little people are in a great gene pool. We decided to go to the river in the evening for the shoot. The light is so gloden and beautiful and two little boys had rocks to throw and water to splash in and bugs to look at. Does it get any better than that ?

I love evening golden light... Isn't it beautiful ??

Look at these two sweet faces. sweet, sweet, sweet !

Thank you for asking me again :) I can't wait until the next time !!! I love getting to watch your sweet boys grow up .
