What is an Affirmation?


Affirmations are positive statements that can help you overcome negativity and self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviours. An affirmation is essentially a nudge of positivity.

Speaking, writing or thinking can challenge negative thoughts and improve your mindset. It can also motivate you and boost self-esteem.

Practising affirmations activates the reward centres in your brain. It can even dampen pain and help maintain balance in the face of threats.

You can use affirmations in any situation where you’d like to see a positive change take place in your life. These might include times when you want to:

  • Raise your confidence before presentations or important meetings.
  • Control negative feelings such as frustration, anger, or impatience.
  • Improve your self-esteem.
  • Finish projects you’ve started.
  • Improve your productivity.
  • Overcome a bad habit.

Why is Photography Important?

I’ve read that children feel safe, welcome, seen and loved if there are images of themselves in the family home. I love this idea and think this is something every family needs to know.

You see stories, memories and keepsakes are important. Life is short. Our humanity is what makes us beautiful. The light will never look or be seen the same again and neither will we. We will never have this moment again.

So, let’s capture it!
