Sleep My Child

  • by

When I first seriously thought of guardian angles I was about 16. I figured my maternal grandmother was around, protecting me. I was only 5 when she passed away. I hardly remember her. I know her from photographs, the many paintings that she created and from a vague understanding of how difficult her life must have been.
More recently I have remembered a woman I knew in Boston. She was such a force who shared her faith through song. We visited with a friend about 4 months ago who had her sing in the church where he was the organist. We had all witnessed the strength of her voice in our own Sunday meetings. He told us about the reaction of those in attendance at this other church and the spirit she brought to those meetings. Once, while driving to a choir rehearsal I thought of her, remembered her voice, her strength and her love.

A Boy and a Camera

The kids have been playing with this little camera for a few days now.  This guy wouldn’t stop taking photos of me.  What goes around…

Portrait of my man.

  • by

Have you ever had an image in your mind and you just can’t shake it? Lately this image, or one like it, has been living in my brain. After having a pretty busy fall and winter, it’s nice to not have any client work during these cold winter months. I get to photograph for me, myself and I.
This was also my submission to week 6 of the “Wish You Were Here” project

Wish You Were Here… January

  • by

This year I have joined a group of women sharing their slice of life each week in a sort of digital postcard. Every Wednesday we share an image showing something from our week. These are the images I shared in January:

What I’ve been up to…

  • by

I have been neglecting this space. Since the crazy Christmas rush I have been trying to be good and start my taxes, which then makes me reevaluate what I want to do with my job as a photographer, which has pushed me to photograph for myself.
I have also joined with a few other photographers in a couple projects. One is a digital postcard project entitled “Wish you were here” where we share an image each week from our place in the world. It’s pretty cool, you should go check it out.
My other project goes hand in hand with what I was beginning to photograph on my own… yet it’s different enough to keep me thinking and exploring. I’m very grateful to have discovered a wonderful group of photographers online and hope to meet a few in person this year.
The photograph below is one I created over the summer and finalized in January for the artist circle I am part of. It is very nice having a group to present things to, if only to give me a deadline. This piece currently lives among the many curiosities displayed on our cabinet. With this cold weather I’m itching to create more of these little pieces. I’ll keep you updated, my poor neglected blog.My Heart Stacie Ann Smith Photographer
