When your life centers around photography, it is important to have a camera on you at all times. Whether it be my iPhone, DSLR or in this case a disposable camera, I have learned to appreciate the art of capturing life through many different lenses. I’m drawn to the 35mm film of disposable cameras, because the photos tend to feel more nostalgic. I enjoy the excitement of getting a roll of film developed and seeing what memories I have in store. This year I’ve gone through 4 disposable cameras; here’s a few memories from spring – winter 2018.
In life you meet people who were destined to be apart of your life for some specific reason. I’ve encountered quite a few of those people- Dustin Harewood being one of them. Harewood is my Art Professor and has pushed be to grow artistically in ways I could never imagine. I’m producing work that far exceeds any artistic abilities I thought I had. On top of that, he’s such a heavy supporter of the local art community, particularly with young people.
Upon the reveal of his art show, he came to me in hopes of capturing these monumental moments. With no hesitation, I agreed. I was happy to, not only capture parts of this night for him, but to be apart of it all. To me, it was such an honor.
On May 4th, 2017, I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to Key West for the weekend to photograph a wedding! My best friend Jessie, her mom and soon to be husband came to me in hopes that I do my part in capturing their special moment. Humbled and absolutely floored, I accepted the offer and headed south towards the Keys. Not only was the destination gorgeous, but I got to spend time exploring this gorgeous place with one of my best friends!
The wedding ceremony took place on a sail boat, which was a first for me! I’ve been on many boats in my life, but never a sail boat. I was in awe from our gorgeous views and just being able to feel the wind in my hair.
