Out with the Old, In with the New

by Teresa Smith on January 5, 2015

It’s the beginning of a new year. Out with the old and in with the new. Don’t we all wish it could be that easy. Don’t you wish that with the each new year, new month or even each new day… you could fully let go of things that don’t serve you anymore and embrace [...]

A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine told me about a park that is an hour and a half away. The park had wolves, otters, raptors and a planetarium. This place sounded like a great road trip for the day so I headed out in my car with a friend Saturday morning to [...]


A Work of Art

by Teresa Smith on December 8, 2014

I’m always looking at things when I’m driving. Now don’t be upset. It’s not that I’m not paying attention to my driving and I’m all over the road. I am…taking in everything I see. I notice the trees, thinking that some look more powerful and stronger than others. Some trees have character. I notice colors [...]

I amazed that the holidays are upon us. We’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving later this week and Christmas in a month. During this time, I always like to look back through the year of what I’m thankful for. I guess the big thing that stands out this year is that my brother came out of a [...]

When you love photographing nature, it’s rough to sit inside an office working on a beautiful, sunny day knowing the weather forecasters are predicting blustery gray skies for the weekend. The past few Saturday’s have been just like that. I’ve been heading up to the mountains every time I can, to capture the beauty of [...]

Plan C

by Teresa Smith on November 3, 2014

Sometimes you have an idea or plan and things don’t work out the way you planned… but better. That happened to me this weekend. A few weeks ago I went to the mountains with hopes of capturing the beauty of fall. At the time, the leaves hadn’t really started to change, so I was excited [...]

Do you ever notice how many distractions you have during the day? You can be accomplishing great things and then one phone call can get you off track. You might have your whole day plotted out and one little small distraction might change the direction of your day. I’ve even been noticing how many little [...]


Do It Anyway

by Teresa Smith on October 21, 2013

I was hoping that both Saturday and Sunday were going to be great days to be outdoors. The leaves are starting to turn and I love taking photos of nature this time of year. Saturday ended up being cloudy and cold. I stayed indoors, did some work and watched college football. Sunday was another story. [...]


Creativity with Facebook & Instagram

by Teresa Smith on June 10, 2013

What brings out your creativity, what makes you happy.  I think I was born with a camera in my grip.  I was trying to recall how many cameras I’ve purchased over the years. I think back on the pictures that I took with my Kodak Pocket Instamatic camera with the 110 film. Ha… film. I [...]


Messages In The Wind

by Teresa Smith on May 5, 2013

Many times we may have an upcoming event in our lives and we want it to turn out well. Prior to the event, we may ask God for safety, good weather, a good outcome. Well, all of that occurred with me last week. Several months ago, I met a wonderful woman in a photography class. [...]
