Five years ago Ben and I started dating. After a few weeks, he took me to meet his aunt and uncle and cousins. (We were in college in Utah; Ben’s family lived in Virginia so we couldn’t just go to his parents’ for dinner.) That was the first time I met Jeni. She was a […]

It’s no secret that I love shooting film on my little Canon A-1. I love my digital camera and even my iPhone, but sometimes I feel like film captures the emotion of what’s happening a little bit more (im)perfectly. And it’s the best. A few mornings ago, Ben, Jack, Max and I woke up early […]

A few days ago, we decided to move our bookshelves into our bedroom. (The reason behind this was a certain 3 foot tall person with blonde curly-Q hair who loves to climb.) This led to one of our walls being completely blank. I knew I wanted to hang photographs on that wall. I toyed around […]

Maxwell Bryon Biggs June 16, 2020 | 7:44 am 8 lbs 14 oz | 21 inches Completely perfect. I was surprised how many people said they wanted to hear about Max’s birth! I mean, I guess I shouldn’t have been because I love reading/hearing other mamas’ birth stories, too. I did my best to make […]

This year for my birthday, we really didn’t have any plans. We were thinking that maybe once we put Jack in bed, we’d watch a movie. I know, we were dreaming big. But then my mom-in-law called to chat. And we realized that Ben’s brother was going to be in town from Idaho, it was […]

I’ve said it a lot of times over the last few weeks, but I think that capturing mamas and their littles is one of the greatest privileges I have as a photographer! It’s near and dear to my heart and I can’t think of a better way to honor mamas and their hard work. (This […]

A little while ago, I wrote a post about some Portra 400 that I shot of Jack and how I felt like I had found my “forever film”. Hahahaha. That was good. Little did I know that I would also love Portra 800 and Fuji Pro 400H just as much. And don’t even get me […]

I have a new little friend! His name is Felix and he is the best! Before we get into how much I love this little boy and his parents, I do want to put out a disclaimer that we did this newborn session during our quarantine and felt comfortable doing so because *we have all […]

After a few rolls of muddy successes…I moved on to different stocks. After shooting my first roll, my next assignment was to try out different brands and speeds of film. There are so many brands – Kodak, Fuji, Ilford, etc – and each speed corresponds to the ISO they should be shot at. The first […]

I have been a long-time admirer of film photography. The look is remarkable. I love how soft and dreamy the images can be. The color. The grain. The bokeh (blur in the background). It’s all just so good. I had just purchased my Canon A-1 on eBay at a really great price and was waiting […]
