A Family Affair a wedding is in the air August 12 2017

 

Celebrating a bridal shower with family and friends

Matthew and I

 

The future Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Delisle Matthew and Lauren

In just a short few weeks we will have one of our 4 boys getting married. These moments are both exciting and hard for this moma bear! The fact that your children grow up and become exceptional young men, we encourage they to be good to others, as well as to themselves. Hopefully they can find someone who they can share every moment with, who truly loves them for themselves and be able to enjoy each other’s company.

Matthew and Lauren met while in high school, being together, getting to know one another and getting those calls in the middle of the night that one of them needs help or has been hurt, has been nothing but scary in those moments, but also lucky that they have found each other. They suit one another. Both are sports orientated, both are caring and loving and family orientated. Although sometimes they may not want to be around family, they know they can always rely on us on any given moment for anything.

Love is unconditional, internally inside and out, makes your hands sweaty and your heart hurt when they are not there anymore. Love is such an emotion that together they can grow, mature and make a life with each other that will make any parent proud.

As we begin to countdown the weeks into days, we take the celebrations as they come, for some are no longer here on earth to share these moments with us. We never take anything or anyone for granted and enjoy every day as it comes.

Congratulations to my son Matthew Delisle and finding your soul mate, Lauren Cartwright!!

Congratulations Lauren Cartwright for surviving our families and becoming a beautiful addition!!

This was such a great experience to witness to be able to share this adventure in the Czech Republic with my son Matthew and his team mates and new family members as they call themselves. 

The buildings and area is so beautiful and full of history, there is not one place that has some kind of history attached to it. Even visited a Concentration Camp in Theresienstadt, Czech Terezín, town in northern Bohemia (now in the Czech Republic), founded in 1780 and used from 1941 to 1945 by Nazi Germany as a walled ghetto, or concentration camp, and as a transit camp for western Jews en route to Auschwitz and other extermination camps. (1)internet info.  This site was so cool and eerie at the same time.

It was the first time ever in Europe for most of us and a learning experience at that, getting use to all the customs and the food let alone the lack of anything cold to drink there. The weather was very hot and not a day that was bad weather wise. But the lack of air conditioning was another rude awakening or the fact that they don’t use wash cloths. The staff would not let us have drinks with our food, something we were use to as if we were home. After a few days with the heat, we got the drinks anyways. The variety of food is very different to get use too for sure. Breakfast was different too, they eat alot of pastries, warm milk, cheeses, meats, tomatoes, cucumbers, as well as some soft boiled eggs and juices. The first few days there we explored the area and found falfal’s we all liked and ate those! The grocery store wasn’t too far away too. We found ice here!! YEAHH!!! To have cold drinks!!

Being involved in the games was interesting! Knowing that these players were ages 20 years old on up to 40 years up, playing against one another took on another level of stress too. Being this was world international ball hockey the rules were a bit stricter THANK GOD!! The way some of them were playing would make you think you needed a doctor or a nurse on staff at all times!

I can tell you the best day was when we all 25 of us, got to experience Prague with a guided tour on motorized scooters! So much fun! We were split up into 2 groups, with each group and guide took off exploring the areas. Our guide was so fun we went to the top of the mountains and down again, even with a few wipe outs! me included, we all survived a great day!!

Now that the month has come and gone and we look back at all the photos and see the social media posts, the websites for stats and game reviews, the guys can look forward to the next years game in Russia or Solavakia, another great experience for the team mates to enjoy and possibly take home some medals!

Being 4th in the worlds is now small feat, but a well accomplished one and earned for each of the guys on the team.

Until next time, enjoy your time together and remember the time aboard.

Congratulations to @greatbritainteam2017

Looking to keep accountable *Strength* *Courage* *Adventure* *Business* A Review within

226557_10150592576070551_8180877_n

 

There comes a time in your life where we realize things need to change either within ourselves or around us,  in order to do these things we need to make those things happen for us personally. Vulnerability, accountability, courage, sacrifice, encouragement and patience are all things we need to work on and grow with. Whether it is for you personally or in your business or both, it can be with your family and friends, no matter which you choose, it only needs to start with you.

My passions and strengths have changed over the years, as I get older, these are becoming more and more a constant in my life. My passion for Photography has never changed, it has evolved over time. When I was younger I loved to take photographs of nature and of events we had gone as a family in our younger years. Shrine Circus, clowns, parades, parks and recreations events, sports games-just to name a few. Then I moved on to families, friends, and even some animals. Then Life happened- we got older and moved on.

My courage- sometimes this is a challenge for me to have. You may see it as a smile, as a nod, but I may be scared straight too. Like the Lions in the Wizard of Oz-we all need the courage to help us grow and move forward. Getting that at times may be the issue and then how do you use it to grow within yourself? We do need to keep moving forward, try and try again, until you find what works for you. Once you do it will be quick and easy and exciting. These levels of courage can change over time, so keep moving forward and never fear the unknown as sometimes the things that await you can bring you the best news yet.

Having friends and family encourage, support, and believe in what you do may also keep you in check with your lives. We all need it no matter our ages, races or accomplishments in time or business, or personal, we are all human. As I embark on this year, I am making, attempting, being honest, to change myself and how I look at things or accept things in life, personal, business and otherwise.

Patience, understanding and courage are going to take the roll for me this year, as I move forward and switch things to better suite me as a person, as a mother, as a business owner.

I have openly accepted many things over the years, I need to also accept that I too am a person who is worthy of others. So I begin this journey with a bit more open eyes, a few more lesser why’s, and whole lot of love.

I do plan to be more adventurous this year. I would love to explore more options to photograph many things out there, and I will accept that journey openly. My life’s dream was to become a travel photographer working with Time Magazine. Although that is a far cry now, I will keep an open mind and heart for what will come. My passion and true love for photography is in my blood. I see so many things at varies times while I am with others, or working or just visiting people and wish I can take a photo or two!  I think that I may just have to be buried with my camera when the time comes!!

 

Business is hard, at times it can be ruthless for others, but at the same time rewarding as well. It is never easy or simple. Things are always changing or adjusting in some form or another. But I cam honestly say, that working for yourself has allot more advantages then working for others. Time is always on your side, you just need to make sure your time is well spent. Having said that I will be working on allot this year. Challenges, growth, improvements are always needed. Learning various options to offer to others, getting feedback to help with this is another way to grow and learn about how others see you in business. We all need to pay attention to how we treat one another in business, personal or otherwise, it affects you in many ways. Let’s go and make the world believe in you as a person, a true human being, someone they would continue to do business with. Get your values in check, do your research and get accountable for all your actions and explore all the options that are out there to grow and move forward in our ever so changing fast paced world out there.

You never know what life will throw out at you, so remember to live it to the fullest and enjoy yourself and family and friends, take your passions and run with them!! Have a purpose in life to keep going forward and making others have a reason to smile and look up to you!!

Personal Growth and Accountability

words from Anne Marie

THANK YOU!!!

Whacky Wednesdays!!

11990445_10153251928678878_6055958145677635938_n

Knowing all the things you have endeared in your lifetime, isn’t it nice to know that you do have the power to go forward in life and make a difference? All we have to do is believe in our selves and perhaps have a few friends and family members to keep us on track and be able to tell each other how we feel at different times to assist in those moments, we all have to be able to go forward and make it work. Having the faith and belief that we can, as well as having the positive enforcements of others, makes us stronger. 

Being in business for yourself certainly has many challenges, keeping up with all the information needed to learn how to effectively keep it running, accounting, marketing, customer service, dealing with all situations keeps you on your toes most times and also very grateful for those who have worked with you thus far and continue to do so. There are many classes out there to help you with the various options you need to help run your business effectively and efficiently too. Which brings me to updating information. How often do you feel the need to update your educational values for your businesses? Meaning, do you update any certificates or classifications so that your customers have more of an understanding that you are informed properly of your particular business and how it is run? Do you continuously ask for testimonials from your clients? I can say personally, I at times will ask, but truthfully will forget when I get too busy as well for my own business. It is a learning experience knowing when to ask or when not to ask. Having the freedom and the courage is always good.

Courage. Do you feel you have enough of it? Just like the movie, The Wizard of Oz- The Lion seeks out courage from the Great Wizard of Oz.    Everyday we all need courage to keep going forward, and knowing when to ask for help when it is needed. Setting you goals, your wishes for your business will help you keep you courage within your business and personal lives. Positivity and common sense are always needed. Getting assistance when it is needed will help you grow within and keep on track with your business as well.

Just like my logo above, it is a piece of me and my dreams. Photography has been in my blood for many years with many family member’s as photographers. It is my passion that through out the years, I have turned it into my business. I love being able to take a client’s photograph, or an event or even real estate photography, all showing to the clients what it is that I see through my lens. Beauty, passion, peace, Love, and Life!! My Monarch Butterfly is a symbol for me, a new growth and freedom. This transformed after my mother had gone through Breast Cancer over 5 years ago, and now is in remission. The Irish Claddah within the wings of the butterfly is in respect to my Irish husband’s heritage, being born of Irish family from Cork and Dublin, Ireland. One day I hope to see this country and its beauty and history. History, without this we are not anything. Knowing your history helps you get though each day, working for a better world for you and your own families and friends.  Personality, that is how we attract others. What we do, how we do what we do, how we treat others and making sure that what it is your are doing is true to you and others around you.

_DSC5603-74

Keeping yourself true and positive is a challenging chore. If I find the need to reconnect I do this near the water.

Peace, tranquility, being grounded within getting a handle on the things you need to do and making those choices all while listening to the sounds of the water and being able to share the beauty of mother nature will always help you. Perhaps it also helps knowing I was born in February, and my zodiac signs are a Fish, Pieces. This is something that I feel truly helps me stay grounded and become the person I am today. My family and my friends are my world. Meeting new people each and every day makes you stronger as a person.

I hope this gives you some insight on myself and how I treat myself and others, as we all could use some kindness in the world along with some great true meaningful friendships too. Keep your outlook positive and uplifting, if you need a hand don’t be afraid to ask someone.

Have a truly remarkable day filled with love and happiness!!

Ugh. Mondays…

How do you manage your Mondays?
Sometimes for me, Mondays are hard work! All week I am on the road, taking photographs of various events, trade shows, conferences, family photography and of course, my real estate photography.  That leaves me with a lot of editing… and the dreaded administrative work.  Mondays tend to be “I MUST DO It” day.
Trying to organize these daily tasks are always difficult and I get frustrated easily. In times like this, I am reminded June collagethat I need to take a few moments out of my day to reflect, and rejuvenate myself so that I can concentrate and keep moving forward. How do I do that? Well for me, I enjoy looking at one of my photographs.  It brings me back to the moment I took that photo and I dream about being there once again.  I find that these few minutes “away” actually help me focus on the next task on the “To Do” List.
This past month and a half, I have been busy with Real Estate Photography and Event Photography! If you’re wondering where I’ve been, well, I recently photographed the MS Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada’s event “Sing It Like a Boss” held at The Ceeps Bar and Grill, London, Ontario. At this event, various business owners and local celebrities got together and preformed in front of a crowd, and were judged on various techniques and song choices. It was a fun night had by all!
 I have also been the photographer for the 4 The love of Music event, the Autism Society of London Walk, the Purina Dog Walk for Dog Guides, a lot of Real Estate Photography, a few High School Proms, and a 50th Wedding Anniversary! I also recently ventured into taking photos at a Horse Reining Show.  Have you ever seen a cow jump?? So funny!!
As you can see, my photography keeps me busy, and I truly love it. Check back on my website and Facebook pages for all the updated (or soon to be!) photo album’s of all these events.  Here are a few photos for you to enjoy!
Have a wonderful week and remember to make someone SMILE!!

Thirsty Tuesdays- Dealing with transitions, change and improvement.

 

12471402_1709451962617497_4557264916799942653_o

 

 

Change is hard for everyone, no matter who you are or what position you hold in life.

 Over the years I have had to adjust to many variations of changes, loss of loved family members and  friends, change from martial status, to a better one at that! Various moves around the country, all while making my life and these changes, better for my family and myself. Now I am following my passion, something I truly love, my photography.

 

We all adjust to these changes at some point, making them a part of our lives each and everyday. If you don’t change things, you simply can not grow as a person, it is the only way to grow and become a better person inside of you.

It gives me great pleasure to announce my change!

I have left Obeo Real Estate Photography to go out on  my own as Phelan Photography. It has been a hard choice, but a very well needed change. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please don’t hesitate to contact myself privately.

I am still the same person who you are accustomed to as a business owner, customer service and expectation’s for professional photography are still kept in the highest regards, just now will be operating under my name wholly.

My services are always improving, with that I would love to introduce to you an addition to my services, Drone Photography. A partnership with Damieon Vella-Zarb. He is an excellent young man, who thrives at perfection as I do in his work. I look forward to introducing him along with his work to all of you.

 

With the spring market upon us, I look forward to meeting and getting to know each and every one of you once again as Phelan Photography!! I would love to have your feedback and testimonials to share to others about my services, thank you in advance!

 

Thank you for your continued support and encouragement for the past 2.5 years and I look forward to many more to come!!
