My name is Cynthia Massey from Cedar Creek, TX... 25 miles East of Austin, TX. I'm 51 years young Photographer/Artist. Creative Images By Cynthia.com is more than just another photography business; it's the culmination of a long and difficult personal journey. For more than 10 years, I built a successful career in wedding, sports and animal photography. I lived life in the fast lane. Then in 1992, my life changed forever, when I was in a near-fatal automobile accident that left me with traumatic brain injury. The experience was a wake-up call that forced me to deal with a loss of memory and many basic motor functions. It gave me the chance to take a long, hard look at who I was and why I was given a second chance to begin a new life with a greater appreciation of the beauty of our earth and its creatures.
The road to recovery meant re-learning simple tasks like walking, talking, eating, reading and even photography. And, it led to a new direction in the way I approach life. As soon as my physical recovery allowed, I took a long road trip across the country, with my little dog, Star and my camera. I wanted to capture the enduring beauty that I knew was out there.
As I stood on a cliff, over-looking the Grand Canyon, I was stirred by a genuine sense of gratitude and awe, an experience that was pivotal in my recovery from traumatic brain injury. After I got home, it came to me when praying, that the hundreds of photos I had taken were very healing for me, and could be a blessing to others. Creative Images by Cynthia is an idea born from a spiritual awakening that I took and turned into the website you see today.
Creative Images by Cynthia lets you select a favorite landscape photograph, include a Psalm or verse of choice, and create a special remembrance to give as a gift or to place on your wall. By selecting the landscape that touches you most, the matte board in the colors of your choice, and adding a Psalm or a verse to give it that personal touch, you can join me in the creative process. Celebrate a birthday, mark a graduation, honor an employee, or decorate your walls with a creation you design.
Whether you choose an image with the serene beauty of sunset on the riverbank in Glacier National Park, the mist rising from an untamed lake in northern Oregon, or the rough and rugged majesty of the Grand Canyon, these photos will remind you daily of the power of creation.
Anyone who recognizes and celebrates the blessing of God's creations and wants to share that marvelous gift will make good use of my online photo matting service.
