Favorite Colors

In my Color photography class at UVU we had to do a series of photos displaying our favorite color. I've always said that my favorite color is yellow. I guess because it reminds me of the sun, summer, heat and it's just a bright happy color. I think I gravitate towards that color because that's always what I've been on that one color code test. But honestly, I love all colors! Especially when it comes to photography. My all time favorite colors would have to be yellow, turquoise, green, and black. And yes! Black IS a color! And I looove it. I especially love wearing it! It's always so sleek, classy and looks good on just about everyone! So here's my tribute to the color yellow ;)

Creativity for Creativity's Sake: The Start of a Project

Photography is more than just a job for me, it's a way of life and expression. I am obsessed with a lot of things, but two things in particular are my outlet for creativity and all the inner workings of my mind. Photography and Videos. I've been wanting to start a project like this for a while now because I used to do things like this all the time! 

There were many inspirations for this project. Alex Stoddard, Cig Harvery, and my friend Marcie Pagliaro are all creative geniuses when it comes to inspiration and expressing themselves through photographs! 

I'm not quite sure what I'm going to call this project just yet. It's not one of those 365 projects, or anything like that. It's more of a series that I can let lose with and try crazy things. Express certain emotions through video and photos that I'm feeling or have already felt in my life. Depictions of memories, thoughts, quotes and dreams. Basically anything that my mind and heart can conjure up!

Sometimes you just need to do something for you, to remind yourself what you truly love and that you can create something worth remembering and hopefully inspirational along the way.

2014… Our Year

It was so cold outside. I had no idea what you were doing and why you were leading me out into the falling snow. Your hand was warm in mine and you were almost running out of excitement.

We stopped in the middle of the street.

I gave a small smile. One of those smiles that lingered with curiosity as I watched you pull something from your pocket.

An Ipod.

You touched my face before slipping the earphone into my ear.
My smile turned into one of pure confusion as I watched you trying to press the buttons with your freezing hands.

A song played.

"I'll be seeing you…" 

You pulled me into you and we started to dance.
I laughed. Probably a little bit louder than necessary. 

"In that small cafe…"

The snow was falling around us as you twirled me around.
Nothing mattered.
Not the cold, not the snow that was clinging to our faces, nothing.
Just me and you.
Dancing December away.

"I'll be lookin' at the moon, but I'll be seeing you…"

As the song ended you dipped me like dancers do and gave me the sweetest kiss.

"Happy new year sweetheart."

Our first new years together was magical. Something I'll never forget. But the next new year I celebrate will be my favorite because that one will be with you.

So here's to 2014. Or as we have dubbed it. "Our Year"
I'll be seeing you sweetheart…
Finally, this year.
