WHY . REMEMBER

  Funny reactions of a five year old.  Toothless six year old grins.  Days with family.   Running in from the rain.

Everyday moments are the bestest.

LIFE . SUMMER STORIES

  Here we are at the beginning of October and I am finally getting around to blogging some of our summer photographs.

Back in June I mentioned in a blog post that I was planning on spending my summer documenting as much as I could about our travels, adventures and daily life.   I did manage to pull together just a few posts that can be found here.

I have more a lot to share ... and hope to do so over the next couple of weeks.  And why not...with the snow today I think it would be good for us to peruse some sunshiny summer photos!

WHY . CULTIVATING GRATITUDE.

  I came across this project after a few mentions from Sue Bryce, and immediately it resonated with me.

I haven't personally created a formal project around this, however I can't say enough about how photography has the ability to cultivate gratitude in life.  The big things, little things or what lies in between.  Making me (and hopefully everyone I work with) more aware of what we can be thankful for.

How about you?

WHY . FALLING IN LOVE WITH THE MOMENT

I don't know if there is anything else that forces you to not only be in the moment, but also fall in love with the moment, as much as photography.   This has been a huge life lesson for me.   And I think that is a pretty good why.

 

WHY.

  I'm kinda sort of a business book junkie.  My collection is relatively big and my wish list is long.  Now, just to find the time to actually get through all of them.

One that I did manage to get through was "Start With Why" by Simon Sinek.  I read through it quite some time ago after seeing his presentation onTEDX.

 

Needless to say, this has really sat with me ever since.  I think about Why often, when it comes to my work and everyday decisions.  Afterall, we truly are what we spend our time on.

So where am I going with this?  I guess I want you to know the why.  I want to know the why.  Maybe I want it to be as simple as sharing my love for photography and helping people understand it's not about numbers and clicking the shutter.

I'm going to keep this simple with an ongoing blog series.  Posting about it when I think of a Why.  It could be a couple of times a day...it could be once a month.  Cause that's how I roll.
