If you’ve been to the Kenmore studio of late some of you may have notice the new big ass artwork hanging above the desk. Yes its me and my kids and the hubster.. a snapshot into the crazy life that we lead. Whose isn’t?! To be honest photos are not my thing.. never have dare I say never will be but.. what ive learned is that photos aren’t about you?!
Well they’re of you but not for you! Looking thru the last 6 years of photos which included 2 pregnancies, motherhood and numerous birthdays, anniversaries and life as i know it, I have 9 pictures of myself.. 9 yes just 9!! And these are only photos with me included in them. Not of me solo. Be it that I’m the one taking the pics or running around looking for a knife to cut the cake or the hard truth…. Im actually not very fond of being photographed. I’m terrribly uncomfortable with them and being seen in them. ( issue alert!)
But what happens when I’m gone and my children and their childrens children look back on the life they had growing up in photos.. Where is their mother? grandmother? what did she look like? what did she do? was she happy? kind? fun? A pain in the butt?
I love tralling thru my grandmothers black and white photos of my gramps, my aunts and uncles as kids and all the places they went to and the crazy clothes they were made to wear, knowing there is a story behind each image.
When was the last time you bought a picture frame or better… a photo album?
For me.. I could not tell you!
So my beautiful friend and photogrpher Amanda from Salt Mama Studios came and took these candid pics of my family and of …ME! It wasn’t to mark any special occasion but to capture a glimpse of the life we have at this particular moment. Something tangible, something my children can look back at .. and for me. And they’re beautiful!! So beautifull that Amanda donated these to the studio so people could see the magic she found in the simplicity of everyday life.. my everyday life, which I bet for most of us is not too dissimilar.
Don’t wait for that special occasion to be photographed. Be remembered especially in print ..theres nothing like it. Be seen by those who love you for years to come.

I hope you are having a great start to your New Year!!
It’s a time of massive goal setting and directed action. New big plans of health, quality relationships, and prosperity are set across the globe. All these ideas can be high pressure, high intensity, and a whole lot of stress. It can be a little crash and burn, ya know!!
The goals, you’ll blow past. Don’t worry about them. When you get really good at whatever your doing, you’ll begin to enjoy the process a whole lot more than worrying about a goal.
