“I react, I go, ‘Oh my God, look at that,’ and the camera goes click.”  

Ted Grant


I want to grab my memories, make them warp their emotions and views around me like a cozy blanket.



I think that’s why I love Photography so much. It takes the amazing things I see and gives them a physical way to keep them close.



Each sunset, laugh, shadow, and light is there. Taking me back to the jokes, fights, the cold or warmth.



Like Ted Grant reacts to what he sees, so do I react to what I see and my mind tells my body that I want to have this memory forever. I want a way to go back to this time, place, feeling.



I see the world in photographs. Whether it’s watching a movie and seeing what parts would be the best stilled or if looking at someone when they talk. I can’t help my self from seeing what I could photograph.


 



 

I’m happy that I have my 22nd birthday as a physical memory.



So thanks for going down memory lane with me. I hope you enjoyed it.

January 2, 2016 -Part 1

“I react, I go, ‘Oh my God, look at that,’ and the camera goes click.”  

Ted Grant


It started with a midnight blast of Taylor swift “22”(yes I am that girl), with my sister Meagan.

Then after satisfying that dream, we continued on with watching (making fun of)  Twilight because we got to scared from watching the scary movie before that.

This is how I started my twenty second birthday.

Before I talk about how this was pretty much one of my best birthdays I should talk about how my birthdays have been sort of cursed.

For the past seven years, give or take a year or so, I’ve had the worst luck. It started with breaking my foot and getting food poisoning, in the same year. Then it went to my knee “dislocating” ,not sure what happened to it but it hurt. From there it goes from being sick, and even moving last year on my twenty first.

So with all that back ground, I can say that this birthday was amazing. With a nice peaceful day hanging out at White Rock, BC, taking some fantastic photos, ending with a great dinner and of course going to see Star Wars, it was pretty great.



I think why one of the reasons I loved this birthday was that I reaffirmed wanting to be a photographer one day. What I mean by that is that I always love taking photos of things, I see the world in ways I can photograph it, but I always feel like I may not be as good as the people I look up to.



 

When I saw the photos I had taken, I could see my self being able to sell them, that this dream could be come a reality. I felt like they were good enough for someone else to want. I not always confident in my photography, I know I still have to work on them but the ones that I took with my family and of that day made me so happy. Don’t get me wrong I love each photo I take, because they are my memorizes, and these memorizes are some of my favorites.



So here is part one of my birthday adventure.



 

Hopefully you enjoy them.



Part two to come soon.
