Happy Birthday! | Oceanside Family Photographer

A family photographer must not neglect her own walls… Just a week ago, my daughter celebrated her ninth birthday. It was a little surreal to think that it was her last single digit birthday. She seems to have grown up in the blink of an eye! I haven’t been able to take birthday photos of…

A Cherry Blossom Wedding

Last spring, I had the honor of participating in a small event for photographers, hosted by Meghan Rose Photography.

  • Bethany Miller - PREACH! This is so true on so many levels!ReplyCancel

  • Rachel smith - Thank you for sharing this and being totally honest with yourself and audience. I sometimes feel like we are only as good as our last goal, always needing to accomplish the next thing to feel validated. I too am starting to change my mindset from goal to intention. The game of goal setting and accomplishing takes all the joy out of life. It makes us like robots, only alive to complete tasks. But intention, lets us live with determination to move in a direction that brings us real fulfillment. It makes us strong and driven, not frantic failures like goals. Within intention we are free to finally be the creatives and joyful humans we are meant to be! I needed to hear this from you, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. Cheers to 2016!ReplyCancel

It’s so easy to get lost in goals and milestones, which makes us forget why we love what we do to begin with!! Here’s looking at a fabulous new year!ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer - What an interesting perspective! I’m so glad that you shared this post.ReplyCancel
