Don’t Take Life Too Seriously

Serious Playtime

Life can sometimes be difficult. Life can bring hardships. Life can also be smooth sailing and full of joy. The trick might be in learning not to take things too seriously, not to introduce drama unnecessarily.

Easy to say, right? It’s my goal to make things as easy as possible, so I thought the beginning of a new year might be a good time to give a tutorial in just that. While Gep and Kat were here, Gep wanted to play with the new lighting system he bought for his photography. To do that, he called upon Kat and Shasta to help out; what follows are prime examples of not taking life too seriously.

What? Hey, can't you see I'm eating?

Pose? Like this you mean?

Is this better?

Hmmm. Maybe Shasta would be more cooperative.


Bailey, help me out here!

It took a long, long time. Time filled with giggles and a few grumbles, but the end result was worth it all.


If you’re into making resolutions, maybe one of them should be to just let go and have fun. As much as you can. Don’t overdo it though. If you do, you might be accused of not taking life seriously.


About Carol

    I think they’re great shots of people not accomplishing anything, as Kat pointed out.
