A Day to Celebrate!!!


So, many people would say, a day to celebrate, why??  Well, my response is, why not?

Shouldn't every day be a little bit of a celebration?

There is a Creative Director that I met years ago, when I first moved up to Boston.  I didn't get to work with him very long, but he was one of those people that you just liked.  He was capable, pleasant, had fun and seemed to be the life of the party.  Move forward years and put some distance between my old agency job and this guy, who now works out in the Midwest.  Facebook, yes - that horrible thing called social media, brought us back together.  He posts things that truly help me focus on being a better person.  I welcome his comments and quotes.  He always makes me stop & think and to celebrate each and every day.

His recent post, "Sometimes it's okay if the only thing you did today was breathe" made me stop and say......he's right!  Celebrate today and yesterday and tomorrow, when it comes.......for each day is a gift.  Thank you, Scott O'Leary.

Celebrate today and breathe.

Eat Well. Live Happy.

What's for dinner?

So, what's on deck for dinner?  Something yummy?  Better be.

That's a question that is on everyone's mind each and every day.  Similarly, as Heath is working on our projects each day - he's thinking, "Hmmmmm, how can I make this food look some mouthwatering that you gotta have it right now?"  

It's all about the appetite appeal - the YUM FACTOR!

Heath's studio drives to give each and every client exactly what they want and hopefully just that little bit more, to make everyone exceptionally pleased.  We don't ever want you needing more, we want to give it to you!  And we'll deliver, not to your house though.  Ha!

Eat well.  Live happy.

Yep.  It's LIVE.

We are excited because Joshua has spent a ton of time pulling together a new site.  It calls for a few minutes of your time and yes, may be partial, but I SO think it is worth it.

Grab a coffee or your favorite libation and peruse.  Fun stuff and an adventure at every turn.  It's pretty much just like Joshua.  Fun. Driven. Passionate. Adventurer.

If you have some feedback.  We're all ears.

Black Inside ~ RASCONA

For years, Rodney Rascona, has devoted a large amount of his time and creative efforts documenting and supporting the United Nations Foundation and other NGO's.  His film, BLACK INSIDE, will be screening at the 4th Global Conference on Women's Health and Well-being.  Quite an honor, for the veteran photographer and director.

We wanted to celebrate this screening and invite you to get involved in support of improvement of women's health and wellness issues.

It's all in the Details.

What a majestic shot!  So many subtleties happening everywhere you look.

Ironic to see this right at this moment in time, as so much of our life seems a bit of a blur.  Yet if we take a moment and really study the details, there is so much more to it.  Don't you think?  I believe that is one of the reasons that I love being a part of the creative process because for all of the hurry up and rush - that often happens, there is a HUGE amount of beauty, just need to peel open the onion and check out the layers.

Creativity is really keeping your mind open, pushing the boundaries, seeing things in a different way, taking risks, checking out all options and sometimes thinking out of the box.  We all could use a little bit more of this in our every day life.  Details are massively important - not just broad sweeping thoughts and approaches.  We need depth and texture, insight and communications, friendship and support.

Joshua and many of the photographers that I work with, strive each day for expanding the boundaries.  Thinking out of the box.  Finding the details and highlighting them appropriately.  Working collaboratively and communicating all along the way.  I am lucky - what a great group of people to work with each and every day.  It's all in the details!

It goes on.

With so much going on in the world, I feel like I am constantly trying to make sense of it all.  Many times, I can't make all of the pieces come together to "make sense."

Recently, I had a quote that popped up that actually spoke to me:

"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life:  it goes on." ~ Robert Frost

It spoke to me because I realized that everything does NOT make sense.  It happens.  I need to adjust and move forward as positively as I can.  So, as I approach each day, each work assignment, each issue - I try and take it one step at a time.  Don't get overwhelmed and make more of something than is needed.  Take in that moment and make it count.

Each issue needs appropriate attention.  Each project that we work on, that is our focus.  Give time to make it the best it can be and don't over think it.  It will all fall in place.

It goes on.

Are you in or are you out?

Aren't we always looking to be included?  I don't know a lot of people that truly are "okay" if something is going on and they are not included.  It's like Civil Rights - we are all to be afforded the same rights - no matter what.  That's pretty powerful.

We are ALL supposed to be welcomed and included.

Nature is one place that are all welcome.  In some cases, it is harder to jump in and be involved if one is dealing with a disability, yet there are ways to work around or conquer that obstacle.  Life is filled with obstacles.  Photography is filled with challenges.  Each day normally presents a certain amount of trials and it is all in how you handle working through those situations that determine the outcome.

The outcome, if approached correctly, can be fantastic.  Include all voices and perspective.  Think if it's been a collaborative process and if the answer is yes - you probably have a winner product on hand.  Pure satisfaction and teamwork.   Success!!

Joshua strives for a collaborative process with all of his jobs - he's one of the team to make it happen.  We'd love to be teammates with you on your next project.
