There are those times in life where the universe decides to remind you that you are taking it all too seriously. I was in such a mood when this shoot started…just ask Jason my photographer.. Poor guy was getting the brunt of it.. and then the universe decided to let me know that I was taking the woes of the day all to darn serious.
Here’s the story..
I had just received some awful family news earlier that day… but I decided to try and not let sadness take over. We had about 10 minutes to get this shoot done before we ran out of light and I had about 20 minutes before I was suppose to be at an event. That coupled with the earlier news I was a itsy bitsy bit moody….
And then came this little angel.
Here’s the best part. She was walking to the bus stop with her mom and older brother and sister. They walked right past me and as soon as I saw her I said “hey there beautiful”.. she smiled a huge smile and they kept walking. We proceeded to shoot. About 20 seconds later she broke away from her mom and came running back to have her picture taken. She never said a word.. just jubilant giggles and smiles.
That 10 seconds of watching this little being so absolutely thrilled and happy ABSOLUTELY made my day!
So I leave you with this. Life is not always happy, joyful, fair or perfect.. but with a few jubilant giggles and smiles it absolutely can be.
