The next step


What to do, what to do? Meaning the next step……

We are in our third month living in this beautiful state of Texas and we are loving it. To say the least it is far more lovley thanI ever imagined it to be.

I have been pondering on what to do career wise. All I have done is taught young humans in a Montessoi invironment that I carefully prepared. I have researched our area and have not found a Montessori school near by. With that being said, I have a coaching business, essential oil business and have dabbled in photography. I love each of these businesses equally.

My question is, do I jump in full throttle with my businesses that I already have and are passionate about and dip my toes in a photography buisness as well OR do I go back to teaching our precious future. I have some time to think and I do not need to rush in making a decision.

XOXOX,

Perfectly Imperfect


I have been working on writing this piece for a while now. Kelsey Shaffor has inspired me in so many ways at her young age of 23. I first began seeing absolutly stunning photographs she captured of my two sons (Casey and Tanner) and their significant others (Alicia and Camryn) and then reading and really getting to know Kelsy. We have never met in person, but fell in love with her talent, beauty, bravery, strength and passion for photography.

Meet Kelsy, a 23 year old that finds her passion in life – photography. Kelsey says her life turned upside down in 2015 , she was diagnosed with brain cancer. In 2016 she had a craniotomy and AWESOME news, no cancer!

“Honestly, after going trough all that, I consider it a blessing. Why? It’s made me a better person. I view things in such a new perspective. I am more empathetic of others and I never take life for granted. the recovering process was and still is to this day a struggle. As soon as I woke up from surgery, I felt like a completely different person. It was insane! Like I said, I consider this whole situation a huge blessing. I finally found out who and what I’m supposed to do in life,”

Like Kelsy stated above, she’s able to view the world with a totally new and improved perspective. Kelsy realized life is far from perfect, but she also realized life is perectly imperfect. There for that is her motto. Kelsy loves kodak, one of ¬†a kind moments, moments of pure laughter, love and above all that show the real ‘you’. She is all about those perfectly imperfect crazy beautiful moments. She aims for the moments that mean something, feel something. She’s far from poses and awkward smiles, but sometimes will crack the strangest jokes just to help make all the tension wash away. Most importantly she loves creating a relationship with her clients. Clearly it works. Not only does Kelsy enjoy photography, but she also enjoys watching Harry Potter over, over, over…..and oh, she loves Disneyland.

“I honestly love Disneyland so much. When I see little kids eyes light up with pure joy, I think its amazing. It’s moments like that we take for granted. Beacuse unfortunately life can change at any moments. So why don’t we live in the moment? As a photographer, that is my goal with my clients, to capture them in the moment. Most of the time I tell them ‘alright so you are going to run into each others arms and I dont care if you fall, because guess what… I’m going to capture it!’ and then we all laugh about it. But hey, it works!”

Thank you Kelsy for allowing us all to see your talent and view life through your lens. Its been an absolute honor and I look forward to see your amazing work in the future.
