As the morning sun rises, a soft, orange glow stretches across the horizon. The rays speckle the ground as certain fragments of light are blocked from the hanging leaves of a nearby tree. Shadows are created
, leaving behind dark silhouettes that outline the area of the bright green leaves. The serenity is omnipresent, leaving one wondering how, if possible, could this moment of perfection be captured. Aurora Chalbaud, a Venezuelan artist, has perfected the art of photography
, photographing these blissful moments into still artwork known as Mesmerizing Summer Leaves By Chalbaud. These pieces of art are displayed on the Schmidt Fine Art Gallery
website and are available for purchase for all people.
is a Venezuelan born photographer who now works out of the United States. As a teenager in 1995 Chalbaud moved to Texas, the place where she began her photography career. Photography is not Chalbaud's primary work, as by day she is a professional in the human resources industry. But at night and her free time, her passion for photography takes flight. Her passion for photography began when she was a young girl. She would take photos of people and her surroundings. As she grew older her passion would continue and she would begin to develop photo books to display her photography. Though initially photography was a simple pastime for Aurora, she would quickly develop and create more of a lifestyle out of the activity.
Her personal aesthetic and photographic style would begin to develop quickly, and the quality of her photos would dramatically increase. Her passion to capture moments in time into a single still frame
motivated her, as she did not want the moments to end. She hoped to take photos of such high quality that, when observing farther down the road in life, would create the same emotions that were felt in the moment just by simply looking at the photo. On a trip to Germany, Chalbaud took a photo of a quaint German
village in the fall that would motivate her to work even harder in the future. The entrancing colors and clear quality empowered Chalbaud, pushing her to try and recreate the same quality in every photo she would take after that singular photo. She often pairs her love for photography with her love for traveling, allowing Chalbaud to take remarkable photos while pursuing her hobbies. Along with her three children and husband, Chalbaud has developed into a global traveler.
Her travels have taken her near and far, from Arkansas all the way to Germany. Her husband, Kurt Schmidt, shares the same passion for traveling and photography as his wife. The couple dreamed of owning their own gallery where their hard work could be displayed and sold to customers all over the world. The Schmidt Fine Art
Gallery would be the product of their shared dream. In the future, Chalbraud and Schmidt plan to continue to expand their art gallery
. This will allow them to display more of their own pieces of art
, as well as more artwork from photographers around the world. Expansion of their gallery will allow the couple to continue to travel the world and take more photos of differing scenes. The two hope to one day be able to transition to full time photographers while still maintaining the ability to pursue other hobbies.
Chalbaud and Schmidt have placed many collections on their gallery
for sale and for view. These include scenic outdoor and landscape photos, the specialty of Aurora Chalbaud, as well as many underwater photos taken by Schmidt
. Chalbaud's recent collection, Mesmerizing Summer Leaves

Her photographs are meant to invoke emotion and remembrance, allowing a person to travel back to a peaceful and happy moment in time.
