There is Always Something to be Thankful For - Motivation Monday

There is Always Something to Be Thankful For  

Monday Mornings are always the hardest aren't they?


After a fabulous weekend with my studio mate Erin and a fabulous couple, Laura & Dennis, in Parry Sound to celebrate their wedding, sometimes it is hard to come back to the day to day but we all have to do it (and don't get me wrong - I love every aspect of my day job and my business but being lakeside has me in summer mode already).


Whenever I am having a rough day, Monday or otherwise, I try to put it all in perspective realizing that I always have something to be thankful for. Take a moment, right now, to think of all the things you have to be thankful for.


I will go first. Today I am thankful for...

  • Amazing couples who allow me to be part of their wedding and celebrate their love with them. It's a real honour!
  • Colleagues who like me, see other photographers not as competition but instead as collaborators. I am always honoured to be asked to work with them on a wedding day.
  • Living in a place where I can follow my passion to create, to meet awesome people, and to share my experiences with others so we can all grow and learn
  • To have a supportive family that, though they don't always understand it, always support me in following my dreams.
  • My health - and the opportunity to continue on the journey to by best health inside and out.
  • Amazing resources including books, audiobooks, webinars, conferences and more that make it easier than ever for me to learn new things in my business, my photography, and my hobbies too (I'm working on my calligraphy and my watercolour painting right now)

...and so much more!


What are you thankful for today? Share it in the comments below and you might just inspire someone else to see the brighter side.

Happy New Year!

It's time to turn over a new leaf...

As 2015 becomes 2016, I want to take a few minute to reflect on the year and express gratitude for all the wonderful things that have happened. (Sure, it's been a bit of a roller coaster but I choose to focus on all the positives)

I am grateful for...

  • an amazing husband & daughter (who may only sorta understand what I'm talking about but nod along anyways)
  • new friends near and far (clients, colleagues, fellow conference attendees, mentors and more...) I love you all!
  • the health of my friends and family
  • the amazing memories I have created this year with amazing couples
  • the opportunity to work with so many seriously fabulous wedding professionals (major shout outs to my fellow London Wedding Professionals - you guys rock!) 
  • new learning (from reading, fellow wedding pros, online courses like CreativeLive & the School of Photography, and a chance to change my whole perspective at Shutterfest)
  • another step towards being the person I want to be and the kind of business I want to have (its all about being the best me so I can offer my very best to all of you!) 
  • new slippers and warm cups of hot chocolate shared with friends or sipped quietly as the night winds down
  • an energetic little puppy named Kowa (the only one in this house who doesn't look at me like I'm nuts when I get up at 5am to work)
  • the amazing support from friends, family, colleagues and more (thank you for believing in me)
  • ...and so much more!

Last but definitely not least, of course, I'm thankful for YOU! Thanks for being here and joining me on this amazing, exciting, crazy journey!

Here's to an amazing new year together and all the possibilities open before us!

Yours Enthusiastically,

I am Grateful

I am grateful....- for family and friends new and old who love and support me everyday - for a safe, loving home to raise my beautiful daughter - for the realization that in everything I do I have a choice in at least my point of view if nothing else - for bike rides, long walks, sweaty kettle-bell sessions and the amazing feeling of health and vitality I feel - for nutritious local foods to create dishes big and small to enjoy with those I care about - for the art of photography that ignites my passion - for weddings that turn me to the little girl dreaming of tulle, diamonds, and happily ever after

- for couples that share with me their memories, their lives, their special moments, and their love stories

- for families that call me to help them celebrate their pregnancies, new babies, and lives year after year

- for a world of beauty all around me to inspire me - for the opportunities to grow my business by sharing it everyday through my art and my services - for the recognition of the impact my own words and actions have on little eyes (and big ones too) around me everyday - for teachers and resources who are everyday pouring more and more information, knowledge and encouragement into others to help them achieve success - for a desire to learn and an ability to gather (devour) knowledge - for the freedom and knowledge that I can define my own life through the choices I make, the work I'm willing to put in, and the belief I have in myself, my value, and my dreams!


I am grateful everyday for things big and small.
