For those of you that don’t know – I shoot film, medium format film to be precise. I shoot the film on one of my two favorite medium format cameras, send to Richard Photo Lab, and they send the magic back (the abridged version of film photography). Sometimes (and in this particular instance) I save a few personal rolls until I sent in my next big haul of client work. The beauty of this you ask? I get to relive the moment, the photoshoot, the giggles, #allthefeels all over again – & I love it! I just downloaded some gorgeous film images from a shoot I can’t wait to share …and found the sweetest images of my nieces and nephew from their last trip to town a.k.a. my studio. I could squeeze ’em!
