About Me - Cynthia Hedgecock Photography

Hello World!

Artist’s Statement

I’m happiest on the edge, pushing limits. I see through a lens and the only way I can make time stop is to push the shutter. My life’s memories are in images – images of light and beauty, laughter and tears, places and beauty and history and people. The diversity of our world and the beauty of faces fascinates me – what a wondrous creation we are part of and I want to see, capture and share it!


Originally born in Canada, I am an only child, now an orphan. My mother was an artist and a huge influence on how I see. I always wanted to be an artist – but I was told I needed to get a job that made money – so I was first a special education teacher, then a college instructor, a property manager, a retail stock broker, a real estate salesperson, and a professional consultant. And a wife, mother and grandmother. Through it all I took photographs and now, I am a photographer. I cannot NOT take photographs.
