Let’s Smile More |Shining Moments Photography

Here’s an idea…Let’s smile more!

Can we all agree that in the world today, we can use a few more, A LOT MORE reasons to smile? A new self study…Smile more throughout the day and see how my mood shifts.

Pretty heavy news these days. It brings something new to think about, or learn more about. But some days it’s really hard to keep positive with so much negativity.

That’s why I created my own self-study…

3 things a day that make me SMILE

It’s an open journal of sorts to focus on smiling more + worrying less. You may have seen a few of these before + see behind the professional photography curtain.

Every day isn’t sunshine and roses and seeing the personal side helps in getting to know people and tell a story through photographs. I love stories and try telling them through photography.

I want everyone to feel comfortable with me as their photographer, and part of that begins with behind the scenes every now and then.

Each time I do a ‘3 Things That Make Me Smile’ post, I include three photos that have significance to me. It’s a behind the scenes peek, things I’m working on, playing with my editing, or just a little bit about life in general, my photographic story.

This month my 3 smiles took me in a direction that I wasn’t expecting:

  1. I worry a lot about things and it’s really getting me no where
  2. A few different edits to my images changes the perspective
  3. There are so many things to be grateful for

Learning to let go…I am a worrier by nature and it’s caused me some serious anxiety at times. But I’m learning to let go of things that are out of my control.

Worry less, smile more.
