THE POSITIVE PERSPECTIVE PROJECT

an invitation to seek and document gratitude, hope and comfort during challenging times

HELLO!  First and foremost, I hope this finds you well and staying sane.  I don’t know about you, but the last few weeks have been an emotional roller coaster of epic proportions.  In an effort to remain positive and productive, I’ve decided to create “The Positive Perspective Project”.  This is an invitation to join me in a daily practice of looking for something good amidst all the uncertainty.  

WHAT IS THE POSITIVE PERSPECTIVE PROJECT

For the next 30 days, take at least one photograph every day.  Photograph anything that is a source of hope, comfort or gratitude.  Write a caption explaining why.  Keep it just for yourself, send it to me, or share it on our community Facebook page.

 

WHAT THIS PROJECT IS NOT

This is not a photo contest.  It’s a calling for anyone with a camera to seek and document the little treasures in life that are getting you thru this crazy time.  That could be anything from your kids to your morning coffee to the new blooms in your front yard.

WHY I’VE CREATED THIS PROJECT

At the beginning of this year I accepted the challenge to document every single day of 2020.  Around mid-March, as COVID-19 began to tighten it’s grip on the US, this project became increasingly challenging for me.  We’re programmed to photograph beautiful things and special occasions.  Rarely do we photograph the mundane day-to-day or the times when life feels especially difficult.  Now, a few weeks in to documenting this time in my life, I am so grateful for this challenge.  I would never otherwise be picking up a camera right now.  And yet, I’m accumulating a collection of photographs that are showing me how much I have to be grateful for, even on the days that I feel hopeless.

 

Photographing the things that bring us hope and happiness, no matter how small, is a way of tuning our awareness to the good things, rather than focusing solely on the stress and heartache.  This practice is a tool for cultivating a positive perspective during challenging times.  

 

WHY PHOTOGRAPHS ARE IMPORTANT

I believe that documenting our lives is an act of love.  It’s a way to capture our love for others.  It’s a way to see the love in our life reflected back to us.  Photographs remind us where we came from, what we’ve been through and what we’re capable of.  When we overcome this pandemic, we will be stronger because of it.  Documenting this time will be a tangible reminder of how we grew closer and stronger as families and individuals.

About

Hi there!  I’m Michele, a Colorado wedding photographer.  I’m here to give you authentic, joy-filled photographs capturing the moments that happen once but want to be remembered always.  When I’m not working you’re most likely to find me camping or flying with my husband (and bff) somewhere around the Mountain West.

Mission

Your wedding photographs should not contain my fingerprints.   My role is to see life through your eyes, not mine.  To witness and preserve, not stage and manipulate.  I want to give you photographs that will bring you joy for a lifetime.
