Throwback Thursday - Saunders Fine Arts Portrait Photography

I haven’t shot any portraits in a long time, so for #ThrowbackThursday, here are a few of my old favorites. 

Maybe it’s time to talk Patrick Saunders into sitting for another portrait. - Kimberly

Saunders Fine Arts POTD - Maui, Hawaii

#TakeMeBackTuesday to our 2018 trip to Maui.

We explored the entire island, and there were stunning sights and views everywhere, but we will especially never forget the bamboo forest in Haleakalā National Park, and a beautiful morning spent on the trail to Honoloa Bay.

The trail to Honoloa Bay leads you through an enchanting tropical forest so beautiful it doesn't seem real. Photos hardly do it justice.

Saunders Fine Arts POTD - National Adopt A Shelter Pet Day

For #NationalAdoptAShelterPet day, here's an image of one thousands of adoptable dogs I have photographed who especially tugged at my heart. 

Gypsy the collie mix was scared and shy at the shelter, afraid even to look directly at me or the camera, but oh so gentle and sweet. She was adopted, fortunately. 

There are so many like her in shelters everywhere who would make wonderful additions to any family. - Kimberly
