The 'LOVE IS... Project' - 2014

“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”

― Paulo CoelhoThe Alchemist

I’m quite open about the fact that I LOVE ‘The Alchemist’, a world famous book written by Paulo Coelho. It’s all about the idealistic dream of the universe conspiring to ensure that you reach your destiny when you follow your heart. What could be more beautiful than that?

Every day, people face their own battles. It’s important to realize this before we get angry at others for making simple mistakes as we don’t know what they might be facing in their own lives. You WILL come across people in your life who will wish you harm and if you don’t…. then you are truly blessed.

Do not allow for bad situations to change who you are and the way you see the world. Actions born from jealousy are not real and true, do not allow for them to exist in your life by giving them time or thought.

I’ve recently had an experience to be truly thankful for and I would like to give something back to show my thanks. It was from this experience that the ‘Love is…. Project’ was born.

This project will become a yearly institution, but each year will be different. This year, I’m giving away a full Wedding Photography Service to one couple who will be married in The Netherlands in 2015, in exchange for their understanding of what love means to them.

I’m so excited to learn a lot from this project!
