A Glimpse into Maternity Sessions with Mike and Haris!

I was so excited to join Mike and Haris in New York City! It had been awhile since I had seen them and they were still that wonderful couple I remembered! Using new techniques to try to make their maternity session as unique and stunning as possible, it was great to capture these wonderful moments before their child arrived. Just look at these two and that adorable baby bump! They were amazing!

You Brighten My World

As people travel the world seeking success and fortune, some things in life take a back seat as they venture on into the future. But no one likes to be alone or not have anyone to share their memories with. Friends, loved ones, significant others – these all are people who hold a special place in your life at some point. Even through the busiest times in life, these people will always be remembered and welcomed to share in on your life….

As people travel the world seeking success and fortune, some things in life take a back seat as they venture on into the future. But no one likes to be alone or not have anyone to share their memories with. Friends, loved ones, significant others – these all are people who hold a special place in your life at some point. Even through the busiest times in life, these people will always be remembered and welcomed to share in on your life.

It goes without saying that everyone is different. Some people are social butterflies while others are more – should we say – conservative towards others. No matter how we view social interactions however, we all usually have that one person that we rely on, tell everything to, and have a special bond with. When something bad happens, you go to this person. When something really good and exciting happens, we go to this person. They are a source of comfort and friendship – someone you look forward to seeing or talking to.

It’s great to see people interacting with others – especially friendships. You can literally see the way their eyes light up as they greet each other and begin to talk about their lives. They seem excited and filled with this lively abundance of energy. Even in the toughest times, your friend can be the one who helps you through it and can cause that happiness again to stir inside of you. Even if you sometimes take advantage of your friends like some do, there’s always a point where friends are always good to have.

Just like in friendships, you can see this same happiness when you look towards a loving couple. A relationship is basically like the ultimate friendship – you have someone to share everything with but it has incredible add-ons. Filled with love, romance, desire, friendship, and closeness, it has a type of euphoria attached to it that is hard to find with other connections in your life. With just one kiss or hug, this person can add positivity to any day. They add a spark to your life that makes you feel more complete and brightens up your life.

Friendships and relationships are two things that will always remain important at some point. Humans are naturally social creatures so it makes sense that none of us “truly” like to be alone all of the time. Friends and relationships provide a way to express yourself and feel a sense of belonging in life. With each moment spent with them, you are able to have beautiful memories to fill your life with happiness. So what’s the point in all this? Well, just remember to cherish your friends and loved ones while they are still around – you never know when you might need someone to share a smile with to brighten your day.

In With the New, Out With the Old? I Don’t Think So!

Whoever came up with the phrase “In with the new, out with the old” certainly wasn’t talking about the past. More than likely they were talking about clothes! Maybe they were even talking about certain items like cars or brushes. Whatever they were talking about, let’s make sure we don’t use this with all elements of our life, alright?

Whoever came up with the phrase “In with the new, out with the old” certainly wasn’t talking about the past. More than likely they were talking about clothes! Maybe they were even talking about certain items like cars or brushes. Whatever they were talking about, let’s make sure we don’t use this with all elements of our life, alright?

Although there is a time and place for everything, not all things should just be thrown to the wayside. There are certain things that should be held onto so that we can remember the importance of what we have. What am I talking about you ask? Well I am talking about remembering elements in our past so that we can have a better future.

Just like items that may be carelessly tossed aside and replaced with new things, sometimes people forget the important things that have contributed to where they are now. In a relationship, a person may forget something that happened a long time ago, but this only makes them forget about why they fell in love with the person they are with. For example, let’s say someone forgot how they met their significant other or forgot what made them attracted to them. Without this to keep them going, they may lose interest or not appreciate the person they are still with. This is true as well if they forgot the struggles they have gone through to be together, or life changing events that only were able to happen due to each other. These things are important to remember. It makes our relationship have a solid foundation and without it, well then you just have a building that could easily collapse under the right circumstances.

If you look around certain places around the world, there are ghost towns that can be found. These ghost towns used to be a booming place for people to live until something went wrong. It’s interesting to visit these places and perhaps see where they had their downfall. But you don’t want a ghost town coming from your relationship, so what is there that you can do? Well remembering your love for each other, events that happened, and also maybe even looking to see where your strong points were can help. Just because you have new memories and new events, it doesn’t mean that the ones in the past are less important. Remembering the past is sometimes just as important as planning for the future. Don’t let your memories be lost to a ghost town of a relationship. Remember, cherish, and hold tight to those special memories. You never know when you might need them.
