My Favorite Client

I love to work with dogs for photos! They are too much fun because they are always on their most REAL behavior. Dogs never hide what they are feeling or thinking, do they. If they break into the trash and make a mess we all know it because their guilty faces give it away.

Are photographs of dogs looking guilty something people would want to use for their own website? Feel free to purchase photos off of my website to use for your own commercial purposes, just so long as you pay for the right license. With a license to use the photo on one project you can use it over and over again on the same website, but you can’t use it on more than one website. You’d need a multiple-use license then!

But that’s really not the point of this post. This post is actually about how much I love photographing dogs because you can always capture their truth. They don’t hide and it’s revealing to me how much people pressure themselves to be a certain way instead of just being. Like a dog. They just be. They just experience and live. If they feel hungry they eat, if they want to run they run! Humans are much more self-conscious than a dog is.

Humans, you don’t need to be self-conscious!!! Just be you! It makes for the best most interesting photos of yourself when you let your guard down and just enjoy being in life.

Addiction Help

I’ve been known to help some of my clients with their addictions. The thing is that I am not an addiction therapist or counsellor but I do believe in LOVE and I believe addicts need love in order to get through it.

Society shuns and shoves addicts aside as if they are worthless. When in reality addiction is something that could happen to any human. We are all facing life and that isn’t easy. Now some people are raised to be able to handle the hard parts of life with ease, while others are wired to have addictive personalities AND they were never taught the skills they needed to fight through the tough times.

Now you take someone in that predicament and you make them feel like they are a leper and then you expect them to heal! I don’t work that way. I don’t feel that outcasting those who are hurting the most does anybody any good. We’ve seen time and again that addicts being treated that way does nothing for them. All that happens is they go face their addictions alone and they fall.

I’m here to help addicts get back up. No, I can’t cure your addiction and you need to want out. But, I can help you get out while you are trying. I can reach in and help pull you safely to the other side. I can wrap a feeling of warmth, safety, security and love around you so that when you do fall you aren’t so ashamed and feeling so down on yourself that you keep on slipping. When you fall and you have the protective love around you, it keeps you safe from breaking.

EVERYBODY FALLS and EVERYBODY FAILS. Nobody has the right to judge an addict. An addict is a human that is going to break if they are not brought back from the brink. Help bring addicts back by giving them protection instead of humiliation. Give them a reason to fight instead of a reason to feel shamed.

Here is a video all about it that I feel really drives these points home.

Hello New Year!!

I’m so glad that 2019 is here and that I have had such a wonderful time helping so many men and women embrace their lives. Now that we’re rolling into the new year a list of resolutions seems so appropriate!

  • I will wake up each day ready to make progress in both business and life.
  • I will cherish the time I have with my family just as much as I do when I am making money.
  • I feel a sense of satisfaction when doing business that I will embrace instead of feeling guilty for.
  • I feel a sense of love for my family that I will allow to grow instead of dulling the flame with selfishness.
  • I will take each day as it comes and face whatever may be with a renewed sense of strength and appreciation.
  • I will travel among people who feel and think like I do with passion and love for both business and life.
  • I will donate to those who are struggling and who need a hand. I will lend my time and heart to those who are lonely and afraid. I will be part of society and not just look at it.
  • I will photograph so many beautiful and interesting photos my website will be flush full of stock photos for businesses and people to buy for either personal or commercial use depending on which license they pay for.

There, I think all of these things will keep my spirt and vibe focused on the right energies to get me through 2019 the best way possible.
