my babes on film…

i have been admiring the look and feel of film for a while now.  in fact, my very favorite photographers create the most beautiful photographs using this medium.  you can imagine how excited i was to finally take the plunge and invest in a film camera.  So, right before baby was born i was so excited to treat myself to my dream camera.  I knew it would take some time to learn how to use it but I couldn’t wait to try it out.  In the weeks before baby I took advantage of my downtime resting on the couch reading up on it.  It seemed daunting…shooting without the ability to have immediate feedback i was so used to on my digital gear, but at the same time it had a charm and antiquity to it that I couldn’t resist.  I played a little at home with wee baby brig and a few weeks after his birth, I was SO excited to take my little girls out for a shoot and experiment with the skills I had studied.  The whole approach is so much calmer and each exposure more thought through. i LOVE it!

Well, I got my scans back this week and it was like christmas morning opening the images…they are not perfect, but definitely get me excited to get out and shoot more.  The images produced really seem to help me create beauty the way I see and feel it…and what is more beautiful to a mother than her precious children…

so i share…my babes on film…i hope you enjoy
