Family First

No matter what you do in life you should always put family first.

I was just reading online the other day that Phil Mickelson will be leaving the PGA Tour indefinitely because his wife Amy has been diagnosed with breast cancer. You can read the article here

Phil Mickelson is ranked number two in the world of golf. I understand that he makes a lot of money so he can afford to leave the Tour, but this sort of thing really says a lot about Phil as a person. He’s a man who cares more about his wife than any amount of money. Everyday we must go to work to make money to provide for our families, but when there is no more money to be made, our family will still be there. Will you choose your family over money?

I hope so.

I would encourage everyone to spend time with their families this weekend. There is plenty of money to be made, but you only get one family, so enjoy every moment you share with them. And guys, instead of spending all weekend in front of the television watching sports, why not take your wife out for dinner, or surprise her with her favorite flowers. Or both. Hope everyone has an awesome weekend with their families.

I will be photographing a wedding this weekend and watching two wonderful families come together to form another beautiful one.

Always remember to love your family unconditionally, and put your family first just like Phil did.

Awesome! I really enjoyed your thoughts on this. Thanks for the reminder about how important our families are. have a great weekend!

Tira J - May 22, 2009 - 11:28 am

Thanks for the reminder! Have a great weekend.

Lynn Quinlivan - May 22, 2009 - 11:41 am

I hear that take me out to dinner thing!! I’m going to have to send my husband a link to this blog post! On a more serious note, it’s very touching and brings tears to my eyes when I hear stories like the one above. That is love. Leaving the tour to be with her was probably the easiest decision he’s ever made.

Happy Wednesday

Hey folks! Happy Wednesday. I hope everyone is having a great week and finds some time to relax today. It’s been pretty busy around here lately. I have been working on designing and taking pictures for the Westover Golf Course website. www.westovergolfcourse.com It’s a beautiful golf course located in Granby, Massachusetts, so if you’re a golfer and you’re in the area, be sure to play a round there. It’s one of the best courses in Western, MA for a really great price.

We are getting ready to photograph some pretty awesome weddings with some pretty amazing couples. Wedding season is an exciting time around here. We love getting to know every couple that we photograph and being apart of their very special day.

Larry Reeves - May 20, 2009 - 12:46 pm

Dude, the golf site looks great! Love what you did with each hole!

Lynn Quinlivan - May 20, 2009 - 12:58 pm

Looks great! Easy to navigate and I love the photographs!!

Tira J - May 20, 2009 - 1:16 pm

Great work Jayson!

Laughter

I love to laugh, but more importantly I love to make people laugh. There is something satisfying about making someone laugh and bringing joy to their life. Every time you laugh It puts you in a good mood and makes you forget about the stresses of life. Laughter is said to reduce stress and increase your life-span. I laugh at least once a day. This helps me to constantly stay positive and brighten up the moods of others I’m around. Sometimes all you need in order to go from a bad day to a good one is a little chuckle. Here is a little clip from Planes Trains and Automobiles with the late great John Candy and Steve Martin that makes me laugh every-time I see it. 🙂 Happy Wednesday everyone. Don’t forget to laugh today or make someone else laugh.

Bev - May 13, 2009 - 3:20 pm

That is great news about laughing and reducing stress. This life will pass away one day but how we relate to others will be there forever. Thanks for the reminder that life is too short to stress about things and reminding me to enjoy laughter. Keep smiling, you too!

Patient Photographer

The easiest part about being a photographer is taking the picture. The hardest part is waiting for that moment to arrive. It takes a lot of patience, but in the end it’s incredibly rewarding. For the past couple of weeks I have been photographing images of a golf course for their brand new website. Photographing a golf course is very different than photographing people. Instead of waiting for your subject to smile or laugh you are waiting for the sun to shine. Often times while waiting for the perfect shot you encounter people playing golf. This is where the patience really begins and my job becomes even tougher. My goal is to photograph the course and not the people, so each hole I wait for the sun to illuminate the hole and golfers to exit stage right. Sometimes I just wait for the wind to wave the flag, that could be the difference between a good image and a great one.

Think of all the things that we wait for in life. Our car to warm up (if you live in New England) Our food to be cooked and you wait for me to blog a new post. 🙂 I just read that on average a person spends an estimated 45 to 62 minutes waiting everyday. That’s about 15 days a year spent waiting. So what’s a few extra minutes for that perfect shot. I love my job and I don’t mind waiting if in the end I produce something like this.
