“Life is short”

One thought has been nagging me my whole life, but particularly through the last year+ of this pandemic.

Life is really freaking short.

I’m an Enneagram 4w3, which means that I like to sit in feelings — to name, analyze, ponder, discuss. My gut instinct is to live by my heart and I have a strong desire to encourage others to do the same (which is not always a good thing). There’s a lot to unpack there, and I’ll get more into that another day, but my main point here is that I perceive the world through a thick lens of nostalgia.

I’m very aware of how precious life is. I always have been. Like, always — I recently found a note that I wrote for a time capsule when I was 8 years old that said, “Smile, you’re living a miracle right now. Life is a gift!” No joke.

My brother surprised me the other day when he told me he recently started making an effort to wake up for the sunrise each day. (Despite being my literal opposite, he is the same Enneagram as me — 4w3. That basically means that, even thought we express ourselves & process our thoughts very differently, we have the same intrinsic motivations.) I don’t really know how much he follows through on that sunrise statement as a college student in a fraternity but the guy has a point! The phrase “life is short” is often used to justify crazy adventures and wild experiences. But how often is it used on the little things?

I want to make an effort to enjoy life while it lasts. To close my eyes and savor that first sip of coffee in the morning. To wake up 30 minutes earlier each day to see the sunrise. To stop during my trail run and take in the beauty of the nature I’m running through.

This is why I love my job. Engagement and marriage are relatively short seasons of life, but they are jam-packed with emotion and vibrance. I want to help couples make the most of their love so they can look back at pictures of themselves in 30 years and be instantly transported back to that moment, feeling wild and free, drunk on young love. UGH. I’m tearing up as I write this. THAT is what life is all about.

Don’t let life pass you by.

This week’s calendar quote is from The Tempest: “We are such stuff as dreams are made on; and our little life is rounded with a sleep.” You don’t need to go skydiving to make the most of your life. (I mean you can, but that’s not the point). All it takes is putting in the extra effort to appreciate the little things.

“Gabriella was absolutely amazing!!! Words cannot even describe how perfect she was, but I’ll try my best. Right from the beginning, I knew she was the one. She was so caring, calming, organized, and just a genuinely happy person. She made me feel even more excited for my wedding. She was so helpful throughout the entire process right down to the big day. AND THE PICTURES - OH MY GOD. They are absolutely breathtaking and she definitely tells the story of your day in the most perfect way. She captures every precious moment while having a smile on her face the whole time she’s with you. I can’t say enough amazing things about her. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to have the BEST photographer for any occasion. We had such an amazing experience with Gabriella and we can’t thank her enough!”

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and we could not have asked for anyone better to capture our proposal! I had intentions of interviewing multiple photographers, but after seeing her work and talking to her over the phone, I immediately booked with her. Her passion for photography is so evident. She goes above and beyond to make your shoot about YOU. She does a great job of taking control and guiding you with poses that you will love, and her candid shots are unbelievable. She had a smile on her face the entire time and we felt like a close friend was there doing this for us. Would recommend her 100 times out of 100!

Gabriella was absolutely amazing. She made the photography session so easy and effortless. Her personality is so warm and inviting, she made us feel so so comfortable during these pictures. Gabriella went above and beyond for us and I’m so grateful my significant other found her as a photographer. I would highly recommend!

Gabriella is not only an amazing photographer, but she is an amazing person! She was incredible to work with and made everything from our engagement photos to our wedding day extremely easy. She really understands your vibe and does everything she can to help make that come true! My husband is extremely camera shy, but he was so comfortable with her and the photos were amazing!

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and needless to say she went above and beyond our expectations! She was hired by my fiancé for our surprise proposal and she did a phenomenal job at capturing every single detail of it. She made our lives easy by understanding us, our personality, the way we wanted to be captured and she did just that! From showing us every beautiful inch of Longwood gardens to telling us about different poses to capturing the beauty and essence of nature! She made my dream come true with these beautiful pictures. We spent 2 hrs with her and there was sign of rush of ending the session and it was more like whatever we felt in the moment which is what I truly enjoyed. She sent us our sneak peak pictures the day off just several hours later and needless to say not only did our jaws dropped but every single person who viewed those pics while asking who the photographer was! We proudly share her information with every member of our family and friends because she truly deserves the best❤️ Thank you Gabriella for capturing the most beautiful and intimate moments of ours and We can’t wait to work with you again!

Gabriella captured our special moments perfectly! She photographed our proposal, Holud night before the wedding, and wedding day. She was very easy to work with and always communicative and responsive. She was able to handle a 300 person wedding with ease and always got the shot. I've only seen the sneak peek from our wedding weekend but I am already in love with the pictures. She truly captured the joy and happiness of the weekend through her photos, which I will treasure forever. She is also just a genuinely kind person, which makes working with her even better :) Highly recommend.
