I feel like I say this a lot, but I am so grateful for friends! I originally asked Keith to show me this location for another shoot I was planning to have. As the day approached, I asked Keith if he was interested in having a small shoot with some color powder I had leftover from the Color Run. Don't ask me why I decided to have a shoot with color powder all of a sudden (I had that powder for a while), but I figured Keith would be pretty open to it and he was! I also asked my dear friend Suzanna if she would help us, and she was more than happy to join us (to throw color at Keith haha).
While we were driving to the location out at Mokuleia, we had a pretty interesting conversation that I'm sure almost every "twenty-something" has at some point: life after college. Things like moving out, finding a job (or even a career), and the uncertainty of every step in life to get to those points.
We agreed that we were so fortunate to have family that doesn't pressure us to move out and throw us out into adulthood, but at the same time, we want to throw ourselves into it. We want to get out and make a name for ourselves, wherever that may be. But (and there's always a but) we really don't know how to get to that point. There always seems to be something in the way: expenses, obligations, or whatever else you can think of.
As I started editing these photos, I realized that our conversation about the unknown really stuck with me. As suppressing as the journey in life can feel, we also forget about the potential the future holds. That's what I see in these photos, the colors represent the different opportunities we have in life and all the potential they hold.
Just a gentle reminder to myself and anyone else out there who worries about the future. The potential is always out there.
