Newborn Photography Session | what little girls are made of
“Summertime and the livin’ is easy.”
This was the absolute quickest newborn session I have ever done. I give all the credit to Mom and Babe! This beautiful little lady was well fed and in a constant state of milk drunken happiness. I adore when all of the cards fall perfectly in place. My job is already a joy, but this was blissful.
How often does that even happen? Can you remember a time when your entire day went by effortlessly? In our culture, we thrive on bad news. We can’t help but wince at the car accident as we drive by. We complain about the traffic it caused. We vent on social media about the bad service we encountered buying our conciliatory latte. Rarely do we celebrate and share our easy, traffic free commute and the smile on our barista’s face as we exchanged coffee lingo. But it’s time to dive into the good, the easy, the simple with wild abandon to enrich our lives, leaving the rest behind and chalking it up to poor luck.
“It’s about living in the moment and appreciating the smallest things. Surrounding yourself with the things that inspire you and letting go of the obsessions that want to take over your mind. It is a daily struggle sometimes and hard work but happiness begins with your own attitude and how you look at the world.” Gretchen Rubin
What are the small moments where you find joy in the midst of chaos? When do you find time to relax and soak up happiness? It’s definitely harder for some than others because our lives are circumstantial, but we can all focus on the beauty that surrounds us in those glimmering moments that pass by faster than a hummingbird’s wings flap. Happy is seeing my son and husband’s laughter, working out or sharing a good talk with my amazing friends. That’s my happy place.
A mom of a newborn is able to stare at a seven pound tiny person for hours on end. Now that is happiness.
Where do you find your happy moments?
