NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS | THE BOOK OF RESOLUTIONS | NEW YORK PHOTOGRAPHERS | NEW JERSEY PHOTOGRAPHER

NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS | THE BOOK OF RESOLUTIONS  | NEW YORK PHOTOGRAPHERS |  NEW JERSEY PHOTOGRAPHER

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

THE BOOK OF RESOLUTIONS…

New Year’s resolutions are a bit cliché, no?  We make promises about things we “think” we will make us happier. But sometimes I wonder, is something out there I don’t know about, something beyond my wildest imagination that could make my life exponentially better?

Every day, clients and friends visit us at the studio; We’ve learned some of the most amazing new things that enrich our lives.  Ideas on parenting…gift giving…romance…art…love…organization…the list never ends. It got me thinking, what if all this wisdom and inspiration was collected and went viral?  WOW. Instantly, our whole world would be better.

Our castle studio is a place of comfort and inspiration; a haven of positive energy, creativity and liberation, not just for Natalie and I but all those who work with us. Not a day goes by where we don’t learn some ingenius new tip, a beautifully touching story, or even a wonderfully insightful comment about their photo session experience. Then it occurred to us, “What if everyone could benefit from all these spectacular ideas as much as we do?”

As we felt 2013 approaching, created a beautiful NEW blank book to document the wonderful stories and ideas of our visitors and guests.  Part journal, part visitor log, and all-inspiring, this book is going to document 2013 in words and ideas to pay the vast wisdom forward. Consider it a recipe book for life!

2013 is a book just waiting to be written! This is the time to master the art of perfecting our lives. Not just THINKING about change but finding ways to make it happen. It’s an opportunity to commit to ourselves and to START doing the things that will make us all better, happier individuals.  Our book is a way to disseminate the information and enjoyment of the ideas that connect us all.

So now, we’re asking everyone who visits our studio to take a few moments to jot down something helpful.  It can be a thought of the day, an idea, some new thing they learned about themselves, a note about their experience, the outcome of their photos, a tip on love, parenting, whatever!  Whether it was a photo shoot, a consultation with us, a giddy moment of laughter, helpful tips, or a life lesson to share…we want to know.  With each entry, we’ll begin to share one by one the creativity and wisdom of our clients.

By this time next year, we fully expect to have a fabulous treasure trove of imaginative, practical, and glorious insights from those who mean the most to us…. our wonderful clients and friends.

Even if you can’t visit us, we invite you to be with us in spirit! Post your thoughts and ideas here on the blog! We’ll happily add you to the book “virtually!”
