Live Love & Take Pictures
Life is way too short! Live life each day to the full, with positivity, love and laughter!
Document your life.
Taking pictures is so powerful. And you don’t need to have a big fancy camera to do that. Whilst I might be a professional photographer, I still have my iPhone on my every moment which is the perfect camera in some situations! I have a terrible memory, and taking a picture for me prolongs that memory, and in years to come I know that I will look back and it trigger what exactly was happening in that moment! How do I now, as I have years and years of photographs that do that to me all the time!
If I can tell you one thing to do, it would be get your pictures of your computer! Set a date in your diary to print your photographs and then when you receive them, or if you print them yourself, but them in an album to be cherished, not to just stay hidden in a folder on your computer.
As we are approaching the New Year I am reflecting on this year. What I have loved, enjoyed, what I would have changed, if I could do anything differently. This year has been absolutely incredible and I am so grateful everyday for my friends, family, support network. There have also been some really tough days, ones that have been pretty dark and lonely. I am thinking about what changes I can make in my life to make sure that I don’t get there again and enjoy each day as it is.
So my new motto for next year, reminded to me by one of my best friends Sarah who sent me this lovely postcard recently.
Live! Enjoy life, say yes to all opportunities, continue to explore and be creative and set goals.
Love! Spend more time with my family and friends, tell them how much they mean to me and spend quality time with them.
Take pictures! This one is kinda a given, since my business is as a photographer. But this coming year I want to explore more personal work and travel photography, on the side of my wedding photography. And not be afraid to push my boundaries!
What’s your motto for the coming year or life in general?
Much love, Charlotte
