in Inspiration, Studio

studio photography of model surrounded by balloons


Some things in life
should be compulsory,
with fun being right at
the top of the list

No matter the age
or stage we’re at,
laughter is the tonic
that tickles our souls

To be spread around
with gay abandon,
like freeing a handful
of helium balloons


Inspiring Quotes:

“If it’s not fun, you’re not doing it right” – Bob Basso

“People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.” – Dale Carnegie

“If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.” – Katharine Hepburn

“Life, like all other games, becomes fun when one realizes that it’s just a game.” – Nerijus Stasiulis

“I think of life itself now as a wonderful play that I’ve written for myself, and so my purpose is to have the utmost fun playing my part.” – Shirley MacLaine

The balloon pic above comes from a shoot I did recently in our photography studio for a beautiful bride-to-be, who wanted some photo’s for her wedding invitation. It was a creative CD compilation, including a personalised cover pamphlet, together with her and her fiancรฉ’s favourite songs.

Here are two more of our photographs, purely for FUN!

They ARE lovely photographs. And what an important message. If I am not enjoying something I find it really difficult to engage….

Thanks, Kate ๐Ÿ™‚ So true…one of the reasons I enjoy your writing so much; it’s clear that you love it!

What a FUN post! And Colorful too! ๐Ÿ˜€

Thank you, Nancy – also for the mention in your stunning post, inspired by the colourful theme! (Just noticed again how our spelling of colo/ur differs – one of those odd things :-))

As you can see, we had so much fun in studio with this shoot ๐Ÿ˜€

I like the idea that you are doing what you love. When it’s this much fun, there’s no such thing as work.

I see an interesting tattoo on Claudia’s foot. Unique location!

So true, Amy. I’m blessed beyond measure ๐Ÿ™‚ Claudia has a number of tattoos. Come to think of it, that could be an interesting theme for a photoshoot….thank you ๐Ÿ˜‰

I *LOVE* fun!! And balloons…they are all sorts of fun! (hmmm….maybe I should dig out the water balloons…)

“…laughter is the tonic that tickles the soul…” ~ I love that line, too…so, so true…
