While I’m catching up on emails, projects and sleep…you’ll be seeing a few posts filled with photos from Hawaii. I snapped a lot of photos of my siblings while we were there (How could I not? They’re gorgeous!) They bring so much joy into our lives and I felt lucky to have spent so much time
While we spent time in New York City, I only shot 35mm film on my Canon A-1. Here are some of my favorites from my first roll. I still need to finish my second roll so I’ll share the rest of my photos next week. I’ve missed shooting film! It’s almost like a time capsule.
Today I am thankful for: A supportive husband who can make me laugh at any time A snuggly dog who sleeps in with me on the weekends A successful business The clients who choose to work with me My blog readers Curiosity Almond flour Four seasons (yes, including winter!) Unconditional love from family Our friends
After a whirlwind of travel – our new place is finally starting to feel like home. Light posting + lots of photos this week. Hope you all here in the states are getting to spend time with friends and family. Do you have any Thanksgiving traditions? We’re headed to Indiana to spend time with Adam’s
I’m a fickle person. I change my mind a lot. One minute I want sushi. Then I want pizza. One minute I want to wear cashmere. The next minute I’m in an oversized hoodie. Right now I’m loving winter. Soon I’ll long for spring. For awhile now, I’ve been a little obsessed with film photography
We spent the weekend with the Cooks and their adorable pups Violet and Oliver in Indianapolis. Desh (our cockapoo pictured above) is exhausted from playing fetch all weekend but I had to share some of my favorite shots of my furry friends. Violet (picture above) has the cutest little face and the LONGEST eyelashes. I’ve
I have such a not-so-secret love for Instagram. It’s my “happy place” in the social media world. I’ve curated and chosen to follow those that take breathtaking, everyday photos. I tend to use my Instagram feed to share the little moments throughout my day that either make me laugh, smile or surprise me with inspiration.
I thought I’d share a few shots from our quick stay in downtown Chicago earlier this month. It was such a calm visit. The temperatures were a lot cooler (so cool, in fact, that I ran into a store and bought a sweater!) and I spent so much time just staring outside our hotel room
I snagged one of these White Slim Angel Wide-Angle Cameras from Poketo awhile back and I finally got my roll developed. The roll turned okay alright (36 exposures) and below are some of my favorites from Columbus and then WMC Fest 3 in Cleveland! I forget how cameras like this can’t really handle any dim light
My friend Heather took me to EcoFlora last night for a belated birthday present/terrarium building class! Located in Clintonville (a neighborhood in Columbus), this little shop stole my heart! So many gorgeous flowers, succulents, and jars. My terrarium turned out differently than I had anticipated but I love it. I chose a little succulent and
About a week ago I was able to take portraits of TWO lovely ladies on a Sunday afternoon. I shot film portraits of Jen Myers (above…oh and hint: you may recognize my April Photo Challenge submission tomorrow after this) at Franklin Park Conservatory with her adorable daughter. The lighting was perfect. It had been an
I call this set REFLECTION. I shot a B&W roll (a REAL black & white roll) during a film portrait session and finished it off while I was sitting outside my favorite coffee shop, Stauf’s. For those of you who don’t know, you can’t just walk into any old shop or Walgreens to develop a
Last weekend I was able to get over to German Village and shoot a film portrait session with Matt Martindale. I used my Minolta SRT-201 again (and Kodak Ektar 100). I did some slight color correction in Photoshop but other than that…no actions, filters, or blurring. Cloudy, overcast days treat me well. After doing a few
This week I took film portraits of Janine. How gorgeous is she? And how amazing is her dog, Jax? We had so much fun walking around the Arena District here in Columbus. The weather was perfect–80 degrees and slightly overcast. I shot a roll of Kodak Ektar 100 on my Minolta and a roll of
There’s something truly magical about film photography. Sometimes you load a roll of film and slowly take photographs. For me, this time, it was over a period of 5 months. I took portraits of Matt and must have brought the camera with me to Illinois where I captured that gorgeous shot of my sister (bottom).
I have today off in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I’m a bit bummed because we were supposed to be up at our family’s lakehouse this weekend with all of our closets friends but there were furnace problems. Tomorrow I’ll be back to regular blogging. I have some wonderful posts lined up for the
Winter walks are important. Fresh air. Light snow. A quirky pup.
This past weekend I was able to photograph Colin and Lisa in their beautiful home. My goal is to offer film portrait sessions as often as my schedule allows. Now I just need to get the word out! I shot with my Minolta SRT-201 and my 28mm/50mm lenses. Kodak Ektar 100 film (which I need
