Aleah and Mitch. What a joy. I don't think I stopped laughing the entire time we were together. Breezy and full of giggles, they made my job so easy. You know those people that enjoy each other's company so much that you have fun just being around them? That's Aleah and Mitch.
Photographing happy people, people who let themselves show joy. What a blessing. Let's do more of that.
I'm a big believer in choosing joy. Choosing joy over bitterness, over anger, over defeat, over the glass half empty. Positive trumps negative. Light always shines away the darkness. Night always comes, but so does the morning. So much of our days are just choices on how we act, react, and move on and forward. I think every time we choose joy and choose love, we make that next step easier. I know I'm far from perfect on living out this ideal, but if you are having one of those down mornings, let this be an encouragement to turn it around and turn it up. I'm right there with you putting on my happy face.
