Spotlight: Cathy Jackson

Behind the Lens: CATHY JACKSON

Meet the photographers of SeeingHappy. Each photographer is nominated by another member of our community.

“The happiness that I get from photography begins with picking up my camera and is ignited several times along the entire process. It is both tangible and intangible. I love seeing the wonderful pictures submitted by so many people – they often give me pause to reflect on so many joys that people are capturing. SeeingHappy is so aptly named!”

In each of Cathy Jackson’s 343 photos she exudes the essence of why we started SeeingHappy: make the world happier by encouraging others to be mindful of the good, to focus on it (literally), share one photo at a time, and create a communal work of art. 

Ever since Cathy’s first photo was submitted on May 9th in 2021 (pictured below), it has been a pleasure to see her happiness evolve throughout SeeingHappy’s existence. To put it simply, SeeingHappy would not be SeeingHappy without Cathy Jackson.

“I will often post a picture that I see as “in keeping” with the theme of one of your latest topics, and also with the overall theme of Happiness and positivity. Having a theme to draw on can help inspire me to post a shot (or 300!!)”

Cathy Jackson first learned about SeeingHappy from one of her friends, and the rest was history. Cathy, a lifelong lover of photography, demonstrates what it means to be an enthusiast. Whether it is photographing moments of connection, beautiful landscapes, adorable animals, or vibrant varieties of vegetation, Cathy’s photographs celebrate the beauty that can be uncovered in moments both large and small. 

“I strongly believe that the feeling that you matter, that your existence on the earth is somehow touching another person in a positive way, is the most important feeling to have. I know from my own experience that if I feel like I don’t matter – whether at work or in my personal life – I don’t have energy or enthusiasm. I am so very excited about the direction that SeeingHappy is growing – it’s a wonderful journey with endless opportunities for joy.”

Thank you Cathy for sharing your wonderful eye for all things positive as well as your infectious enthusiasm for making the world a better place. We love you!
