Family Photography on Film


I choose to incorporate family photography on film for my sessions because I adore film photography for many reasons. Film is quite different than digital photography, and these differences are part of why I enjoy it. I also love photographing my own family on film. I will often carry around my 35mm camera to document important occasions or moments, from vacations to nature walks. It is fulfilling for me because I can be creative but not tied to my camera. You can’t view any initial previews on film cameras, so I’m not constantly checking or retaking images. I can take a photo, then enjoy the moment. I want to be fully present when I’m with my family, so film helps me be more available.

Below are some of my favorite images taken on my 35mm from this past fall. Hope you enjoy.
