This baby is about to makes it's debut, like any minute. Melanie is super pregnant and trying to speed things along. Literally, I just saw her dancing at a wedding this weekend! But we are still waiting for baby. I can hardly wait to meet this little nugget! Any day, now, little one!!!
I tried using some film during our time at the beach and had a few shots that were actually keepers so that was a nice surprise! I guess we'll call it a hybrid session. Ha! Below are a few of my favorites from Melanie's beautiful beach maternity session!
Film scans back from Spring Break! We took a couple of beach trips to Daytona and Cocoa. The boys loved playing in the waves and this was Tess's first time in the sand! She was less than thrilled when we sat her in the water. It's still a little chilly. The boys can't get enough of Daytona even though there is construction everywhere and no ramp to get the stroller down to the beach. That was a little bit of an adventure. They just like that there's an arcade and ice cream at the beach. I'm still trying to figure out what I'm doing with this film camera, but I do love the nostalgic feel of film and the pastel colors are my favorite! I still look at the back of the camera every time I take a picture even though there's nothing to look at. Waiting for the scans to come back after sending in a roll of film is definitely a fun surprise! :)
I have been totally obsessing over film images for about a year now. My insta feed is full of beautiful images shot on film versus digital. I always wanted to take photography courses in school but never had time in my schedule as I was taking drawing, painting and other AP classes, trying to decide if I wanted to pursue a creative or business career. I finally bit the bullet and purchased a film camera. The last time we were in Orlando, we took a day trip to Daytona Beach and I brought my Pentax along. So, this is very first attempt at film photography...I have to say, it took me a while to shoot this first roll. I was totally intimated by even loading film into the camera. Thank you, youtube! I think I checked the back of the camera after every shot, even though there is nothing to see! That scary first roll is done and I'm excited to experiment more with this new media!
