Let me start by saying lately I have been getting into positivity and practicing daily gratitude, which has changed me and my world in so many ways. Practicing gratitude is the daily reminder to your self that everything is well and appreciation of everyone around you is essential to a healthy lifestyle. As you submerge yourself into this state of mind opportunities just come to you, whether its an opportunity to help others in need, or just noticing certain things you clearly missed before. When I got an email form this client my heart just melted. I knew this opportunity was a blessing and I had to be part of it.
Here is this beautiful family that was celebrating life, that’s it just celebrating life and all the blessings they have. I have done so many family events, but being a part of something as amazing as this will always stay with me. Everyone at the party was there to celebrate gratitude, each other, family, love, accomplishments, and all things positive. Each smile I captured made me smile too, every hug I saw as people walked in was a true, loving, and genuine hug. The type of hug to give to someone when you just feel so good inside and want to share the warmth. Just writing about this is giving me goosebumps, it takes me back to that night when the family of four got up and talked about their memories good and bad, and the love they share for each other. I saw guests cry, laugh, smile, and even blow kisses as they heard speeches, watched dance performances, and reminisced on memories through a beautiful slide show.
I remember coming home that night and telling my family about how wonderful it was to witness so much love in one night. I am so grateful for this family for inviting me to their event to capture their celebration of gratitude and blessings. We can all learn from them and their way of life.
