Our theme for this week was “happy” which really made me happy!  At the risk of sounding totally cliche and cheesy….photography makes me so happy.  I am incredibly happy that I can capture these moments for families that bring so much joy to them, and to be able to create these experiences for them that they will remember forever.  I am so happy that I am able to do what I love everyday, and to share that happiness with others.  There is this great quote “Happiness never decreases by being shared.” (Buddha)  What a great guiding principle to live by, whether it is sharing the love I capture through the lens, the extra eggs our chickens lay, a jar of homemade jam, a meal with family and friends, or the simplest sharing of a genuine smile…it is good to share happiness.

Now for a little more “happy” inspiration go check out the blog of Amelia Chiew from Canada. Don’t forget you can follow the links at the end of each post to see what all the lovely photographer’s from around the world are doing for this project.
