“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.

Wind

So I don’t know how many of you have taken a ferry ride but they are both beautiful and boring, also noisy. So to make the trip my family and I took over to Victoria more fun and entertaining, I made a little photo shoot.

You have to know that my one sister is pretty crazy. Ok well both of them are, but you only one could make it on this trip with us, and I made my sister do a photo shoot on the cold and windy boat ride.

Not only are me and my sisters complete nuts but the views those two days where stunning and out of this world.

I love both the sunny-ish views from the first trip and the cloudy moody ones on the way back. Pretty much any type of weather can make for a fun photo shoot.

The first day was cold and so windy we could hardly see through our hair because of it creating a medusa like hair do. It did give us some major cool photos though.

Never doubt the skills of wind and its power of creativity.

On the way back it was so cold I thought my hands would fall off but it was so much fun and so still. I couldn’t stop my self from staying out and taking pictures.

There is nothing like cold, windy, family fun.

Hope you enjoy the little bit of Canadian beauty.

“Have I gone mad?”

I went exploring a few months ago. I found a world of wonders

One of the reasons I love the Camera is looking at the little details of life. The little parts of the world that you just cant help but want to look at for ever.

“I’m afraid so. You’re entirely bonkers.”

I saw these little parts of the world, but not like the one I see everyday. No the things I saw made me feel like Alice. Like I feel down a hole to another world.

It was beautiful and full of imagination.

“But I’ll tell you a secret..”

So go look at the world with wonder and imagination and see what new world you can find to be a part of. Look close for new worlds that are being created around you everyday.

“.. All the best people are.”

A Little Sun for the Rainy Days

A while back I went on a wonder filled adventure to whistler Canada.

It was sunny with warm sun that came out to play, the smell of BBQ all around (there was a  competition happening that day) and the laughter and music of the active all around me. Having that day spent with my family was super inspiring and really fun, it was just what I needed. 

There was laughter, naps, heart-felt talks and even some death-defying moments. Okay maybe not but some of us (aka me) thought so.

Nothing can replace the love I have for my family and the adventures we have together. I’m pretty lucky to have them. I love these little moments in my life. It’s the days I love looking back on, that make me smile ; the ones I need when I’m feeling down.

More soon,

Moons and Stars

I don’t know about everyone else but I am in love with stars and moons. pretty much all things nighttime. I have no clue why but I just love it. So when you put a super moon + a lunar eclipse together, you of course get an impulsive Emma with her camera driving around after the moon.

Oh but wait, just like true Emma fashion I would forget my tripod. In trying to make a makeshift tripod to get photos of this amazing event  I of course went through my car and found a sweater, opened my sunroof,moved my body around so I could see through the view finder and started playing around with my favorite accessory.

It was everything I love about photography. A wonderful view, the random and sometimes painful places you go to get those photos, but always fun and always worth it.

Hot July Day Getaway

Hello my amazing people,

I have traded my wonderful Oregon seaside weekend getaway for a quaint lakeside escape in Washington.

This July has been an inferno of heat. So because of this my family and I took it upon our self’s to  escape the hottest day by heading to this lake for a picnic. It was fun and enjoyable, the perfect recipe for cooling off. Of course due to the fact that I can’t pass  up on a time to photograph, my trigger finger raced to keep up with the gorgeous views. I even got my sister to pose for me. Not only did I get the great family time I also got to just relax and dip my feet into the water and relax. I swear it’s the number one way to unwind, letting your feet hit open water. Take your pick of ocean, lakes, or river. It doesn’t matter.

So I think the moral of my little post is to go and dip your feet into some water and just listen. Take it in and breath.
