Sometimes it’s ok to just play.
A few days ago, we were all outside playing and we had an impromptu “family shoot.” I set up my camera and let the kids go nuts with a water hose. They had fun. I had fun. We had fun. AND, awesome pictures came of it.
If you are anything like me, sometimes it seems like life is moving at like 4,391 miles per hour. Regardless of how much you try to slow down, things just keep piling up; that is part of the reason that our family practices a Sabbath once a week. But even then it’s like we don’t get enough breaks. More and more we are realizing that we have to be intentional about stopping. We have to “plan” to do nothing. Maybe it’s just us, or maybe you struggle with this too. If you find yourself seeming to never have time to “play,” you may need to just schedule it. Put it on the calendar. Make it the most important part of your week. The cool thing is, the more we have time to rest and refuel, the more ready we are to get back to work or let our creative juices flow. I LOVE some of the images we got and can’t wait to work this idea into an engagement session. You know you want to be cool like my kids. Email me if you are brave and want your engagement session to be H2O-wsome!!!
