You may have noticed that it has been quiet over here on the blog. Over the last few months I have taken some time to make a business shift that I am head over heels excited about. Soon you will see a brand new website with an unseen portfolio of work showcasing Film Photography in a style that focuses more on portraits that authentically tell your family’s story.
Why the shift?
About a year ago I started to feel a little “blah” when it came to my work. I found that I wanted pictures that were more intimate, capturing more of our relationship with our kids and spouses. I was tired of everyone standing side by side and smiling, I wanted my images to actually help you remember just how in love you are with your family.
The other day my baby girl snuggled in with her cheek pressed against my chest, thumb in her mouth and with her chubby little fingers she clenched onto my shirt. I wished someone was there to take the picture…just minus the messy bun and worn t-shirt with a spit up stain.
This is one of the moments I want to capture- moments soaked with love. I want my pictures to whisper or shout, “I LOVE YOU!”
The second part of my journey involves a shift in mediums.
For the last few months I have been shooting film behind the scenes and I am absolutely in love with the results. There is just something about film that my digital photographs can’t beat. I love the way film captures color, painting each hue in what looks like watercolor paint. Film beautifully softens skin tones giving you smooth creamy skin. A little bit of grain, shallow depth of field and movement in the images add an elegant and timelessly artistic feel is created.
So here I go on a new journey- capturing love soaked images in the medium of film.
The website and blog are getting way more than a facelift in the coming weeks. I can’t wait to show you just how beautiful film is!
So stay tuned… launch day is coming!
