The Alchemist | @alfornobakery // Don't think about what you've left behind" The alchemist said to the boy as they began to ride across the sands of the desert. "If what one finds is made of pure matter, it will never spoil. And one can always come back. If what you had found was only a moment of light, like the explosion of a star, you would find nothing on your return. #thealchemist#paulocoelho#mondaymotivation ♥️ go read this book pls.
Day 15 of the marathon and so I am doing good in this project so far, I figure as much in photography as it is in life it is good to reflect a bit, appreciate the past, and also look ahead, but most of all remember to enjoy the view. #yyc#calgaryphotographer#andreharmsphotography#calgary#403
No, this is not another pregnancy announcement. In fact, this is Jay here. (Although, my wife looks pretty good even when she is pregnant.) This is Joti about 6-1/2 months into the pregnancy with Ethan last year (in Auckland). I don't often write or post much because this is Joti's forté, but I thought I'd take over today
For years, I have looked at her and told her that I love her in our own quiet moments. Women are rising up! Oprah said it best during her Golden Globes speech last week, "So I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon!" For as long as I have known Joti, she has been a creative force that I am incredibly lucky to stand beside and witness. The wedding photography industry is saturated with male photographers and she understands that she has to work just a little bit harder because of this. People are taking notice of the work she does and like I've said from the very beginning, "you will get to where you want to because you are incredible at what you do." Before we head into a busy wedding season, I wanted to say 'Thank You'. Thank you for never backing down. Thank you for your constant drive to push forward even when we thought we were at our lowest. Thank you for being the ultimate role model to our daughter and son - they will be better people because of you. Thank you for being you and never wavering from what you stand for. You are the strongest woman I know and I am the luckiest person to call you my partner. Oprah may have said that a new day is on the horizon, but I wake up next to this light every morning.

Danielle’s Mom passed away from cancer three months before her wedding and the morning of, Danielle’s bridesmaids surprised her with her moms engagement ring and another one of her rings as a gift. There was not a dry eye in the room and it was one of the most touching moments I’ve ever photographed 💕

Finally getting around to submitting my 50 favorite photos to the @shootandshare photography contest from this past year! I forgot about this gem. I’m bias but I LOVE photographing red hair. For those of you who don’t know, my 5 month old son actually has red hair! Turns of it came from my side of the family.
