Leprechauns are not the only magical creatures!
I know it can be hard to focus sometimes in the midst of health scares, global economic concerns, with every news station yelling in our ears on the impending dooms day that is approaching... And by all means, we need to stay smart, open eyed and take precautions to the best of our ability to protect our loved ones and our community.
But once we have done the best that we can do, we need to detach and have hope and faith. That is when we need to focus on all the beauty and joy that is here, right now. If it is your children, your spouse, your pets, your home, or sunshine filling into your bedroom in the morning, or a new petal growing on your kitchen plant... Focus on it.
Focus on it deeply, feel its magic, feel its power, and be grateful.
Because life is only meaningful as long as we are able to feel the magic.
With only a few days to go before St. Patrick's Day, schools closing and stores running out of toilet paper, let's all take the weekend off from being sad and scared, and let's all renew our souls and hearts with all the magic currently in our lives.
Let's renew our hearts so that if the going gets tougher later on, we will have our reserves full and ready to keep going. Grab your kids and go for a walk in the woods. Get out to the back-yard to run around with them. Take your camera or cell phone and snap a few pictures of someone or something that makes you happy.
Sending you all much love. Please stay happy, hopeful and healthy. Wash your hands often, eat well, rest well, and stay away from sick people and stress.
PS: A quick note for anyone who is considering a photo-shoot in the coming days/weeks:
As usual, we take great care that the studio and all supplies, outfits and accessories are cleaned and sanitized appropriately. We never book multiple sessions back-to-back, everything that will come into contact with children, especially babies, is pre-washed with non-toxic materials. I wash my hands thoroughly before every photo shoot, and sanitize several times during a newborn photo-shoot. All hard surfaces are also sanitized.
I never show up sick at a photo-shoot or if I have symptoms that can be contagious.
This is just normal business here, as I care for your family like I do for my own, so that you can enjoy your photo-shoot and make memories without other worries.
With much love,
