{CONFETTI THROW FRIDAYS} NO. 52…

before i reveal this week’s confetti throw fridays, i would like everybody to take note of what this family is going through and hope you can do whatever you can to help- even if it’s just spreading the word or donating $10.  this wedding industry community has been known to rise and band together to help anyone in need.  and this wedding photographer and his family could sure use some strength right now.  i  have been fortunate and blessed to experience what “every little helps” truly means.  take note that for japan with love and for philippines with love did not raise as much money because it was people donating $1000 at a time.  with for japan with love, there were over 1,400 individuals that donated to raise that large amount.  and it’s ok if you can’t help financially, sometimes words and presence are even more comforting.  i’ve had my fair share of dark days this past year.  the amount of emails, text messages, facebook messages, instagram comments and tweets got me through a lot of those.  please in whatever you can, take a moment to read their story and send them your strength.  click HERE to read about Bobby, Lindsay, and Clive.

BENJ HAISCH

 (there aren’t words to describe this one except you just need to go see the rest.)

before i sign off, i touched upon this briefly on the facebook page.  but this week we lost an incredibly kindhearted and talented soul.  he has touched generations and will continue to do so through his films and shows.  he gave life to one of my favorite Disney characters of all time and played a nanny that i wish was mine.  he truly was one of a kind and there will be no other like him.  he truly will be missed.  o captain, my captain.

just a reminder to be a little more compassionate each day.  you really don’t know what others are going through.  have a fantastical weekend all.

{CONFETTI THROW FRIDAYS} NO. 51…

before i share this week’s confetti throw fridays, just had to share this image with you from one of the best in canada, ARON GOSS.  when his travel post of his most recent adventure to switzerland and italy went up, this is the first image that stood out for me and i just stared at it for awhile.  there’s just so much in this image.  truly.  check more of his travel frames HERE.

ok on to this week’s confetti throw fridays.  remember i pick these from wedding photographer blogs i’m already subscribed to or as i discover throughout the week.  it’s just another chance for me to showcase the talent that is out there and an opportunity for all other wedding photographers to cheer on their peers and throw some confetti with me.
