With the Moment of Focus Facebook group and customer base growing quickly, I wanted to take some time to introduce myself to those of you who do not know me. My name is Karen Berman and I am the founder and artist at Moment of Focus.
I’ve been fascinated with photography and nature since I was a child. That is my perfect combination for pure happiness – put a camera in my hands, set me off into nature and everything else vanishes. I become completely engaged in the moment at hand – no to-do lists, no concerns, just complete focus and enjoyment. Those of you who know me well can attest to the fact that not only do I enjoy Mother Nature’s gifts, but I also am always pointing things out to encourage others to also recognize this beauty…a blooming flower, shifting clouds, waves crashing (just like my mom did when she introduced me to the wonder of nature many years ago). Now, I have friends calling me and saying things like “Hey Karen, did you see that moon tonight?” I love thinking that perhaps I had some influence on their new found joy and appreciation of these small daily gifts.
With all of us living hectic lives, I wanted to find a way to use my nature photographs to bring the beauty and magic of nature to the lives of a people around the world, not just to my friends. I know that we all get busy and can forget to live in the moment, to see and experience what is happening right now, to be grateful for the magnificence of our world. I created Moment of Focus to enable us to bring a small piece of nature’s wonder to our lives. Imagine rushing to a meeting and taking a minute to picture a beautiful sunset. I am sure I am not alone in saying that instantly, I would smile, breathe deeper and feel more relaxed.
Every Moment of Focus piece of jewelry is created from one of my original nature photographs. Wearing Moment of Focus jewelry is not only stylish, but serves as a reminder for us to live for now and to treasure even the smallest beauty in our days. And yes, the name means what it sounds like – each piece of jewelry highlights a specific MOMENT of FOCUS.
Now that you know a bit about me, I’d love to know about you. What brought you to Moment of Focus? What do you enjoy most about nature? What do you want to share about yourself? Use the comment box below.
