Well, there is a little story behind the blog name. Years ago I did photography on the side. I've always enjoyed photography and ever since I can remember I've had a camera of some kind or another in my hands. Later in life, my Photography business simply became "Creations by Cindy". I had a website for a long time. When I decided to do a blog it all started out because of the photography so that is how it became "Creations by Cindy". I've never wanted to go through the hassle of changing it so decided to keep it. And....it kinda suits me because you never know what I might be creating. It might be a picture, a meal, a craft, a tablescape or something.
I am a jack of all trades and a master of none!
And when it comes to a camera you never know what I might be snapping a picture of.....
There came a time that I was burning the midnight oil as they say trying to schedule pictures, edit, and all that good stuff that goes along with it and that doesn't count the time I would spend to try and learn the latest techniques. When my grandbabies began to come along it became obvious that my photography would be of our babies. Snapping a picture of them here and there keeps me plenty busy with photography.
Matter of fact I will give you a sneak peek of our youngest grandgirl that will be celebrating her 1st birthday this coming Sunday.
Isn't she just a doll?
One more....guess I better not post any more of her before I show them to her mama. LOL!
I was the photographer that preferred outside pictures any day of the week. Still am!
No matter how simple the picture may be, fun pictures are always the best.
I love doing a collage that that captures the personality.
Anytime there is water somewhere in the picture it is bound to turn out sweet.
And then when you just happen to capture a sweet little face like this...well, what can I say.
And oh this sweet little thing right here will be 13 years old in a few weeks. WOW...
I can remember photographing this little guy to this day. He smiled the entire time and never cried not one time.
Sometimes I would get on this kick of adding a touch of magic...
This little "Creations by Cindy" actually won best creative idea on a Photography Blog once and I received a $50 gift card to a Photo lab and I got bragging rights on the blog! LOL!
Maybe in the next few weeks, I will share a few wedding pictures with you too. I was often told that my specialty seemed to be with kids photography but in all honesty, I loved to take pictures of old barns, churches, old buildings, and well, pretty much anything outside that caught my eye. Weddings always left me drained but at the same time, if this makes sense, I felt truly happy that I had helped to make the couple's special day by getting a few keepsakes for them. But weddings was truly hard work and long hours. Family pictures at times was a challenge especially large families. Mainly because there usually winded up being at least three women that all thought they needed to be the boss and four to six children that took turns peeing, pooping, crying, throwing a temper tantrum, getting a spanking and well......
YES....I will just stick to my grandbabies now. LOL!
I have become lazy using my camera since it's so easy to just snap a picture with my cell phone camera. Even when using my big boy as my man calls my camera, I've become lazy using manual and changing out the speed and aperture and all that good stuff. So easy to put it on AUTO and go! My very first photo class was a college class and I learned how to develop black and white pictures. I still have a few old film canisters laying around somewhere.
But I can truly say that a PICTURE PAINTS A THOUSAND WORDS. Every picture tells a story of some kind.
I am looking forward to the revealing party with Stephanie when we all will reveal our Tea Cup and Mug exchange next week so stay tuned. Hop over and visit the lovely Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose. http://theenchantingrose.blogspot.com/
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
