a reason to pause | Los Angeles Fine Art Photography

The past two months have been completely amazing to me! I have been busier than ever and although I am loving every second of it, it has left little time for blogging. It's true. I'm a bad blogger. In fact... it's really an understatement. But hey, the first step to overcoming a problem is admitting it, right?! At least in my head it is. With that being said, you would think I would be posting pictures from some of my super adorable shoots... but instead, I am taking the time to post some images of something that literally made me stop in my tracks. breathe. smile. and reflect on just how completely blessed I am.

Every Spring when my favorite grocery stores and local farmer's markets get the most gorgeous supply of fresh daffodils, I just have to buy a bunch [or two or three] and spread them throughout my home and office. They are so bright and vibrant... the minute I see them an instant feeling of happiness, rejuvenation, and inspiration comes over me. One day, as I was walking past our bedroom I peeked inside and caught a glimpse of cheery, glowing yellow and it made me pause. just for a moment. because then i ran to grab my camera so I could capture the feeling of happiness and warmth that these simple, spring-time daffodils give me...

Now... whenever I want to slow down for a moment. smile. and be inspired- I look at these images. They remind me pause. and appreciate everything life has given me.

Good tidings we bring...

As I sit thinking of how to write out everything I really want to say, my mind just keeps jumping back to how quickly this year has gone by! It really does feel like just yesterday that I was posting a very similar Holiday Greeting for 2008. So much has happened this year that has allowed me to grow in incredible ways both personally and professionally! Three weddings [my own included!], a funeral [no really- it's not just a movie- it's my reality], traveling galore, friends with babies on the way [so exciting!], so many wonderful new friends, colleagues, and clients.... the list is endless! I am so thankful for everyone and everything in my life. It is because of you that I am able to do what I love... thank you for continuing to allow me to grow each and every day! With that being said, we here at Cynthia Spivack Photography would like to say that we are....
