Happiness

Personal

christine_kbp_0003What is Happiness ?

To me it is :

Smiling just because. It’s not wanting to change a single thing in your life – well except maybe winning the lottery and getting a maid to clean my house weekly !

You can’t buy yourself happy – no books or magic star is going to “give” you the life you desire. Only YOU can !

I am not self help guru or expert but one day I just choose to be happy. Even on the days I want to scream, cry or break plates. I take a deep breath and choose joy. Even when you think you can’t, like when the kids are screaming, the bills are piling up with a depleting checking account, or the fridge is empty.

Choose Joy !

Focus on the on one thing that makes you happy – your home, your kids, the trees blowing in the wind, a pet, a plant – anything. Then take a deep breath and remember all the love your life has given you.

Sometimes I am not ashamed to say that I randomly dance, and sing to get a little happier. Just ask a few co-workers of mine ( Brandon loves my little boredom dances – and Justin has laughed so hard when seeing my happy dance ! ) Yes you read that right I do a little butt wiggle when I am happy – and I jump up and down with a WHAHOO! Even when I am driving I will bust out a little happy dance to the song on the radio – I have made a few people next to me giggle – happy to have made their day.

With Love – Christine

Greatful with a Thankful Heart
This time of year we are all thinking of everything that we are thankful for - and I have said this before (many times) but you seriously have no idea how freaking thankful I am for each and every one of you! Every single person that I have photographed, met at weddings, emailed, liked my posts, read my blogs and all you cheerleaders out there! You guys all ROCK MY WORLD! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I cannot express exactly how thankful I am with words, but the way all the love of "likes" on Facebook, the emails and the phone calls make me feel. There are times I look at Justin and I tell him "I have met and worked with some of the c ...

See you in the New Year!
Justin and I are heading to his families this weekend to celebrate Christmas! My side of the families Christmas is New Years Weekend - which so happens to be my Birthday too!!! So many reasons to celebrate! With all this traveling happening (and last minute shopping) we are taking a step back from our business. All while getting ready for some awesome thing coming in the new year! Even though I have have been in business for nearly 5 years (real years!) I feel like the past year I am starting over. I have been honing in on my brand, style and voice! At the beginning of 2016 I starting a re-brand, and it is coming full swing at the beginning ...

What do I do when I am not working?
So I have been asked a few times what I do when I am not working, or photographing awesome people? Well this past month I have gotten to spend two days a week with two little humans! These two little people are my niece, Josephine, and my nephew, Reid. My Sister and Brother in Law were in need of someone to watch them for a few hours before they got home for a few weeks. Of course I said YES! These two little people are so stinking easy to watch! We play, have laugh, dance, play music and have fun! Those two days a week are filled with some of the best moments of my week! Especially this last Monday, little Man Reid wasn't feeling the best. W ...
