At Jade Norwood Photography we can barely believe summer is over, let alone May being here – and with it comes Mother’s Day 2014! We’ve been wracking our brains about something new to give our mums, but there is always the one idea that we come back to – family photos.
Mums put a lot into their families – most of which goes unnoticed – but we sure know when they aren’t around because the little things start falling apart! Sometimes it isn’t until we move away or become mum’s ourselves that we truly appreciate everything our mum has done for us, so that’s why making a special effort on Mother’s Day 2014 to show our love is so important.
We think the best way to show mum your thanks for everything she has done is to make her feel beautiful in some family photos. You might have plenty of family photos around the house, but how many of them include your mum? Probably not many, as she is the one behind the camera instead! By booking a family photography session with a professional family photographer you are giving your mum a mothers day gift of beauty and love that she is no doubt going to treasure forever – especially as you, her beautiful children, grow up and change through the years!
To step up your Mothers Day 2014 present even more, why not pick your favourite photo from your family photography session to display on a wall art canvas in your home….or better yet, a heap of your favourite photos for a family photo album?
Jade Norwood Photography offers vouchers for all of the above, family photography sessions, wall art canvases and beautiful family photo albums, so that you can really spoil mum on Mothers day 2014. Contact us today – [email protected]
Celebrating Mum’s for Mothers Day 2014
A beautiful family photography album makes a gorgeous mothers day present.
There is a lot of focus on health these days, from the extremes of severe illness to extreme bodybuilding and all that is in between. Everyone has their own interpretation of what is good and what is not, but the fact is we only have one body to take us through life and the better we take care of it, the better we will look and feel.
When you work so hard to look and feel healthy and fit, you should take the chance to celebrate it. So to reward yourself for the fitness work, for the healthy eating, for the time and effort you are putting into taking care of your body so it performs at its best, photograph it! Take the chance to really look yourself over in a styled photo-shoot, because a lot of the time we see the imperfections in front of the mirror, but when someone takes our photograph and presents it in a beautiful print or album it is hard not to feel proud of where you are at.
You don’t have to be 6 foot, chiselled and consider yourself sexy to empower yourself with a styled photoshoot. Cherish yourself regardless. Love yourself and people can’t help but love you too. Celebrate you!
I’ve just gotten back from one of those walks where I was so lost in my playlist and the rhythm of my steps that I was startled by the view of my house looming so soon. It was the kind of end to an exercise session where you felt like you could do it all again, like the stressful tightness in your body has melted away and you felt stronger, healthier and fitter – both physically and mentally.
But I couldn’t go ahead and share that feeling, because (wrongly) there are people in the world that bring you down for pursuing that healthier feeling. They attribute your clean eating and working out to vain tendencies, when in reality you are doing it for yourself and your health – not for other people.
I heard a great saying the other day; “I don’t work out because I hate my body, I work out because I LOVE my body!’ Looking after your health means you are looking after the vehicle that will take you through life – it’s the one body we have and we can’t move through life easily and happily without it functioning at its best. So when you workout and you have worked that hard to feel good about yourself, you should celebrate it!
Whether you have gained it by walking, running, clean eating, circuit classes, swimming, riding – whatever, celebrate your strength, show off your power, display your fearlessness.
When we work hard at our jobs, we reward ourselves with a new pair of shoes or holiday, so when you have done the hard yards to look and feel awesome – why shouldn’t you celebrate it? Reward your results with an empowering photoshoot and finally capture the lifelong change you have made in stunning photographs that will leave you in awe of even yourself.
“Nature has provided all the pieces necessary to achieve exceptional health and wellness – then left it all up to us to put them together.” With a Jade Norwood Photography fitness styled photo shoot you can show off your completed puzzle with the pride it deserves.
A couple of months ago I headed to Queensland and New South Wales for a working holiday. While in NSW I was so lucky that I was able to met Chelsea and her horse junior in the beautiful setting of the Sugar Pine Walk… oh and did I say it was snowing… My first ever time in snow, in fact Juniors first time in snow also! Junior was such a champ, he was so well mannered.. Chelsea; you did such an awesome job staying out in the cold and were super easy to work.
Combing my two loves, horses and photography… could I be any luckier?
Oh my gosh, cant wait to head to NSW again and see you in a few weeks Chelsea for your wedding…
There is little denying the love between a horse and its owner. It is a special bond that isn’t often replicated, a trust, a love and a mutual respect that can be seen in the eyes of both human and animal. Something so cherished shouldn’t go unacknowledged.
Capture the love between you and your horse with an equine portrait photoshoot. Equine photography will truly capture the love between rider and horse. Whether it is a themed equine shoot or natural photography of you and your horse, equine photography is the best way to capture the true bond between you both.
“A horse is the projection of peoples’ dreams about themselves – strong, powerful, beautiful, graceful, spirited – he gives us escape from our mundane world.”– Pam Brown
