The big things that happen in our life create a big impact don't they? Change of house, career, new routines in life, children...... all of these things are BIG changes and we all know that they have an impact on our day to day life.
How often though, do we acknowledge the little things? The difference the little things make on both our lives and the lives of others. I've recently received an email from a client that has reminded me of both the big and the little things. The big event in their life was their 20mth old daughter commencing Chemotherapy treatment for a brain tumor this year. Hard to comprehend unless you've experienced it. They had a photography session with me recently and as part of their package (which they didn't know) I included a little photo book with 8 images from their session. It is my gift from me to my clients to say thank you. Thank you for booking me. Thank you for taking the time to allow me to photograph their life. It was was lovely this week when this particular client emailed me to thank me for the photo book and mentioned how perfect it was for them to take to the hospital when their daughter was going through treatment so she could have the photos of those nearest and dearest close to her while something not so pleasant was happening.
So to that client of mine, thank YOU for reminding me it's the little things. The little things that can sometimes turn out to mean bigger things to other people.....

I love weddings, families and friends getting together to celebrate a beautiful union. Yes Weddings can be stressful however this one was different! This couple held a relaxed wedding in a local park with their nearest and dearest with them on a Saturday morning. It was one of the most easy going events I have ever attended let alone a wedding! After a brief official ceremony and a few drinks to celebrate the bride and groom along with theirs guests had a few hours to themselves before reconvening at another venue for a Mad Hatters Tea Party themed reception! It's a reminder that weddings should not about the 'event' rather than celebrating togetherness and having some fun with those that matter most.
