Havana, Cuba (2018)

IMG_7077.JPG

I have always wanted to go to Cuba. I think what really peaked my interest in wanting to travel there was the movie Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights. The first time I watched that movie I was around the age of 17! I’ve held onto the want for so long. It is cliche to let a movie push interest in travel but that film bumped Cuba to the top of my list. Specifically Havana, as that is where the movie primarily was filmed.

I talked about wanting to visit Cuba with my mom and she told me how that has been a place that she has wanted to experience as well. We looked into traveling there. We found a fun option to go on a cruise through Royal Caribbean and next thing you know that is where we ended up!

I was really into the culture in Havana. The art, music and food. I love how the people seem to be holding onto the culture dearly as a lot of these things have not been Westernized and that’s important to realize when traveling. You are organically a part of their lifestyle when you visit a place. Everyday there was something new and eye opening that we got to see. Creative environments, pure joy, bright colors and a lot of sun!

There are a bunch of photos that I took on the trip that I wanted to share and I hope that after seeing these images your interest will peak as well.

Texas & Vintage

One of my favorite things to do is connect with people on social media. A few months ago I had a chance to link up with Sarah Beth and Kenna who are both individuals that I met through Instagram. Kenna is a model and Sara collects Vintage fashion which she sells through her online shop. Both these women are from Texas which happened to be a great coincidence. We spent an afternoon listening to The Beatles, talking about our likes and dislikes between Denver and Texas. We each put our talents into a collaborative shoot after bonding a little bit. It's always inspiring to meet like minded individuals. Below are a collection of images that I captured during our afternoon together xx
