One Step Closer!

IMG_20150717_093519

Finalmente alcancei 1000 curtidas no minha página de fotografia no Facebook. Eu criei esta página há quase um ano. Meu único propósito era compartilhar minha jornada fotográfica com amigos, família e qualquer um que estivesse interessado. Minha paixão por fotografia tem aumentado no decorrer do ano, e com o amor e apoio de cada um de vocês, eu adquiri confiança para fazer disso minha carreira. Sei que ainda há um longo caminho a ser percorrido e muito para aprender, mas com seu apoio contínuo e a graça e a permissão de Deus, eu sei que conseguirei. Estou extremamente agradecida e lisonjeada. Obrigada.

Rumo às próximas 1,000 curtidas!

I have finally achieved the 1,000 likes milestone on my facebook page for photography. I started this page almost a year ago. My only objective was to share my journey in photography with friends, family, and anyone else who was interested. Over the year my passion for photography has grown expediently and with the love and support of each one of you I have gained the confidence to pursue this as a career. I know I have a long way to go, and much more to learn, but with your continued support and the grace and favor of God, I know I can do this. I am so incredibly thankful and humbled. Thank you.

To the next 1,000!

And a special thank you to my lovely translator: Gabriel Campos

Piano Shoot

The last shoot I did before leaving London was with a very dear friend of mine who studies and plays piano. I can say with full confidence that this young lady is incredibly talented in what she does. I have had the privilege to hear her play, and I was blown away by her talent and dedication to her work. I was so excited when she approached me about taking some pictures for her to use for concerts in the future. I have been a wee bit busy since doing that shoot about a month ago, but I have finally finished and I couldn’t be happier with the end result. She is so full of energy, smiles, and laughs, and I think I successfully captured at least a glimpse of these beautiful characteristics. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Share Your Smile

Smiling is definitely one of the best beauty remedies. If you have a good sense of humor and a good approach to life, that’s beautiful.

-Rashida Jones

I think everyday I learn to love my smile just a little bit more. Not so much for the benefit of myself though. Sharing your smile with the rest of the world is one of the most simple but powerful things you can do. Especially in the world we live in today that is full of negativity, war, cruelty, and other things that makes it hard to keep hope in humanity alive. But for just as much bad as there is in our world, we can fight back with just as much good. You might not think you have anything to offer, but if you are blessed with the ability to still smile, you have a powerful tool. A powerful tool that can change someone else’s life. Seriously, when you are walking down the street you have no idea what battles people are fighting in their private life, and something as simple and kind as a smile could be that small spark that helps them make it through the rest of the day. And okay, maybe it won’t change their life right then and there, but there is definitely no harm in smiling at people. Who knows, maybe your smile will make someone else smile, who will make someone else, who will make someone else smile!

So learn to love your smile! If you don’t love your own smile, you will never share it with the world, and you will be depriving others of witnessing such a beautiful thing. I can speak as someone who absolutely hated her smile growing up. It was mostly for the fact that I was a chubby kid with a really round face, so in my opinion, smiling only made my face look even more round and chubby. I had a serious self-image problem and therefore I avoided smiling in public whenever possible. As a result I was depriving myself of happiness. There has been tons of research done on the health benefits of smiling. Smiling (even if it is a fake smile at first) will literally get your endorphins up and running, and your mood will naturally improve. So yes, because of my poor self-image, I refused to smile and unknowingly was making myself more miserable. But at some point (around the time I decided to adopt a healthier life style) I started to smile more. I can’t remember if I started doing it as a conscious effort or because I just had more things in life to smile about, but I started smiling more. I started to smile at myself in the mirror more and learned to embrace the smile God had been me. The more I accepted my smile, the easier it was to share it with others. I’m still not 100% in love with my smile all the time, but I’m getting there and I definitely smile more often than not now.

I know it’s Monday, but smile anyways. Go out and make someone’s day brighter!

Sunday…not so #Funday

It is Sunday. The day you are supposed to take off to relax. Most of my Sundays are just that. Unfortunately, today is not one of those Sundays. Today is day 3 of my genius plan to work like a madwoman and finish the last of my uni assignments this weekend. I must say I wish I was further along, BUT I am making progress, and I choose to focus on my small victories instead of freaking out about how far I still have to go. This is easier said than done. But with the Grace of God I know I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. But that doesn’t mean I don’t feel exhausted and sleep deprived! Uni has been a crazy roller coaster of life lessons I’ve had to learn. As appreciative as I am for all that uni life has taught me the past few years, I can’t cover up my desperate excitement to be finished with it. That’s why I have set this ridiculous goal for myself. I am just that tired of having uni assignment deadlines hanging over my head. I just need to be done with it. I know my academic freedom is so close; I can see the metaphorical light. Things that have helped me not completely go mad the past few days has been taking lots of breaks to either work on my blogging, playing around with doing makeup on myself (I think I was a MUA in a past life), changing my hair, getting kinda sorta back into my yoga, and having pictures to document it all. These little things make me happy and momentarily distract my mind to keep my mood from getting too down in the dumps. Ahh, but enough of about me, I want to know how your weekend has gone, or how you plan to spend relaxing on this lovely Sunday. Comment below!

Have a great one guys!

Me Sunday morning. #literallywokeuplikedis

Healthy and Happy

I’ve been plenty busy the past few days finishing the last of my uni assignments and honestly I haven’t been taking the best care of my body. But I woke up this morning determined to do something to benefit my body. So I did some simple yoga stretches. Though simple, they had a huge impact. I feel lighter, more at ease, and ready to get back to my essay writing.

It is so essential to take time to take care of your body. We only get one. 98% of my childhood I was overweight and I didn’t have a healthy lifestyle at all. About 4 years ago I decided to try out the vegetarian life style because it put me in a position that I had to be consciously aware of what I was putting in my body instead of the mindless eating habits I was accustomed to. Soon after I decided to start working out and doing exercises that I enjoyed and that gave me results. Since then I have learned (and am still learning) how to make my health a priority. I have found that if you are good to your body it will be good to you! So do something today that your body will thank you for, anything from picking up some fresh fruit to going for a 5k run if that is your thing. #LoveYourself!
