Hi my name Cindy and I am 43.  I am the mom of 5 beautiful kids 23,21,20,17 and 16.  I was married for 22 yrs to a good man who was a good father but never really interested in me.  I left him for a man who appeared to be all about me and 6 months into a new marriage he was jealous of my kids and anyone I came into contact with along with taking all the money I had from my settlement from a marriage with a good man.  I am nearing the end of an ugly divorce where I find myself in debt over my head.  I have been an Elementary School Music Teacher in a small town and have always enjoyed photography with my 5 beautiful kids.  Over the last couple of years more and more people have asked me to take pictures of their families and it has been such  great therapy.  I have taught myself thru classes online , reading books and being a part of a wonderful network of women photographers and my business has grown so much.  I am ready to take the plunge and do it full time.  

The main focus of my photography is to celebrate family and help people to see what is  right in their house.  I would like to glue families together in a way I neglected to keep my own together.  I made a horrible mistake and it feels really good to help other families appreciate each other through an image.  I have had such great response from some of my sessions.  I am trying to get my work out there and I am hoping an opportunity will present itself to me to leave my current job and use my photography gifts to do good full time.  I love when I have captured a mom loving her kids  and she can see how her kids respond to her thru one of my images.. It makes all her hard work worthwhile.  We need to see images of those we love loving us back. It is so needed to have something tangible and real to remind us what we hope is true in our heart.  Our connection to the ones we love is more important than where we live, what we drive or what job we we love and who loves us back is the most important thing !  I want to help others remember that thru my images...

If you are moved by what you see please pass along my site to others.

I will come to you and take pictures of your family in a way that helps celebrate the connection you have with each other.

    • Welcome, nice to meet you.

      I absolutely love your photography.

      Interesting that you posted today, because just yesterday I was learning about the works of Cindy Sherman the photographer.  

      Have you ever seen her work?

      Her photos are very deep & meaningful, different than yours of course, but i just thought I’d mention it.

      Keep up the great work!

    • Thank you so much for commenting so quickly Stephanie.  That is my sister’s name :)  Thank you for taking a look at my photography too !!

      I wasn’t familiar with Cindy Sherman’s work but I googled her name and their were a couple of different photographers by that name I don’t know if the one I saw was the one you were referring too... Do you have a link to her website?  I always enjoy seeing good work :)

      Have a great day !!

    • Cindy,

      You are incredible, where are you located? Loved your gallery of photos, I do have one question, is this a recent picture of you?  

      And you are 43? and this is without photoshop?  

      WOW, even though you are a very talented photographer, I think you are on the wrong side of the lens.  

      Welcome to our community.
