Monday Mixtape

You know how there are songs that you simply loathe, but they got played out so much on the radio that you know all the words to them anyway?  And sometimes even can't help singing along for a few bars... until you realize that you, of course, have the power to change the station?  It seems weird to be posting a mix of music I don't like, but whatever.... They kind of got into my head this weekend.  Maybe this will help get them out.  (Oh, and I apologize to anyone out there who actually likes these songs.  It's cool; they were big hits, so I'm well aware that a bunch of people did :)

4 Non Blondes - "What's Up"

Jesus Jones - "Right Here Right Now"

The B-52's - "Love Shack"

I shot Ashley's senior portraits a couple of weekends ago, and was completely struck by her quiet beauty and she has this look that can only be described as "soulful".  Her smile lights up a room, but this look simply takes my breath away!

Thus, a "soulful" mix for today...

Christina Perri - "Jar of Hearts

Adele - "Someone Like You"

The Sundays - "Wild Horses"

Kate Bush - "This Woman's Work"

Cowboy Junkies - "Sweet Jane"

There's nothing quite like a heartfelt "thank you" to lift your spirits and make your day.  A couple weeks after I shot her wedding, Yesenia sent me a glowing note of praise and gratitude... I couldn't help blushing when I read it!  To be appreciated like that is such a huge reward for what I do, and inspires me to always give everything I have, to learn, to grow.  And it's a wonderful reminder to appreciate the people in my life :)

Dido - "Thank You"

Alanis Morissette - "Thank You"

Tori Amos - "Thank You"
