Have a superb day!

Tell me about a joy in your life…

“Tell me about a joy in your life that came unexpectedly, a moment that you did not even know you were waiting for, that caught you off guard and made you smile…” – Oriah Mountain Dreamer from THE INVITATION

you are always making up the future as you go…

“Take wrong turns. Talk to strangers. Open unmarked doors. And if you see a group of people in a field, go find out what they are doing. Do things without always knowing how they’ll turn out. You’re curious and smart and bored, and all you see is the choice between working hard and slacking off. There are so many adventures that you miss because you’re waiting to think of a plan. To find them, look for tiny interesting choices. And remember that you are always making up the future as you go.” – Randall Munroe

Kickstarter Update on Jump for Joy Mural fund raiser :)

Jump for Joy Kickstarter Campaign - watch video here

Jump for Joy Kickstarter Campaign – watch video here

The campaign for Jump for Joy Mural project and book of 1000 people jumping for joy around the world is going very well. I’ve had incredible support from the media and in pledges. After just one week am at 67% of my base goal! The base goal will cover costs to create the Jump for Joy mural and anything over the base goal will go towards making the book.

It’s exciting and humbling to know that people value the work I am creating and that others also feel JOY is worth spreading :)

Please take a moment to check out the campaign, and if you feel inspired to make a pledge i would be incredibly grateful: JUMP FOR JOY MURAL AND BOOK

strive to become better than we are…

“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we
strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better
too.”
– Paulo Coelho

focusing on the positive rather than the negative…

“Happiness is not a destination, it is a state of mind. It’s focusing on the positive rather than the negative. It’s appreciating what you do have instead of sulking over what you don’t have. A rich man can be miserable and a poor man can be happy. Happiness is all about a person’s priorities, a person’s perspective about life.” – Nikki Doby

Jump for JOY + Murality Kickstarter has begun! @jumpforjoyphoto @kickstarter #jumpforjoyphoto

Jump for Joy Photo Project + Murality.org join forces!

I am excited to announce an exciting art project that I have been invited to be a part of… I will be creating a large scale Public Art Mural with a collage of enlarged jumping photos.

I am now raising the funds with a Kickstarter campaign which is LIVE as of today :)

I would be ever so grateful if you would consider making a pledge, and or spreading the word to anyone who may be inspired by my work. The last day to pledge is May, 31, 2014.

Your contribution will assist in creating this unique large scale Mural of Jump for Joy photos of people all around Vancouver.

I am aiming to make more than my goal amount of $5000. My aim is to cover materials/costs to create the mural and also enable me to compleate my Jump for Joy! Photo book of 1000 pictures of people jumping for joy around the world.

the fullness of life…

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” — Melody Beattie

make a positive impact in someone else’s life… @marcandangel

“When you make a positive impact in someone else’s life, you also make a positive impact in your own life. Do something that’s greater than you – something that helps someone else to be happy or to suffer less. I promise, it will be an extremely rewarding experience. And your small gesture just might touch a wound that only kindness can heal.” – Marc and Angel Hack Life

your best discoveries… @marcandangel

“Some of your best discoveries will likely come when you least expect them, in places you never even thought to look.  What you were not looking for can end up being more than you ever hoped to find.  So seek your goals and dreams diligently, but don’t be so unyielding that you develop tunnel vision.  Do not blind yourself from all the unpredictable wonders and opportunities passing in your periphery.” – Marc and Angle Hack Life

Self-portrait photo by Eyoälha Baker http://www.jumpforjoyphotoproject.com

This was one of my first attempts at doing jumping self-portraits on a trampoline last spring.

I am often asked if people are jumping on trampolines in my photos… only a couple of people have actually done their photos with me on a trampoline.

Jumping on the trampoline is a lot of fun but I think its much more fun and interesting to capture people using their own joy and energy to propel them into the air. I love how surprised people are when they see how high they can actually jump off the ground.

A lot of people have told me that they don’t think they can jump very high and it alters the way they perceive themselves when they see the photos. It always feels good to do something you didn’t think you could do.
