There’s a calming effect nature has on us the moment we step into it. I notice it mostly when driving to my parents house on vacations. It’s the moment we cross over to the U.P side of the Mackinaw Bridge I feel it, my blood pressure drops instantly. Busy highways are replaced by two lane […]

      I love Portra, it’s my go to film from now on. I over exposed the shots and still, they look wonderful. The color is also the truest and prettiest I have found in film. ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

Yesterday, I tried to think of a good SP for the post this week but I feel like I am playing inspiration catch up from our Las Vegas vacation and then the girls having Spring break. Any angle I tried was meh so I decided to simply grab random objects and practice the art of […]

    Your film photos are lovely, Kim!
    Yeah, you can be pretty amazed at what film can do even if your metering is off.
    Love the Impossible shot of the little one in the pool!ReplyCancel

    All the colors are gorgeous, so soulful and filled with depth. That is the reason why I love shooting film. I have been leaving my digital in the room more and more, and just shooting film. Always enjoy your photos, and yes I LOVE Old School Photo Lab. ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

      @ Renee and Melissa I find myself shooting primarily film on vacations. The only reason I brought my digital camera was to get one photo for my 52 wk project, but then I didn’t do that because we were always on the go. ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

Every click of the shutter I ask myself why am I taking this photo? If you’ve seen the episode of Seinfeld where Elaine hoards the “sponges” you’ll really understand when I say, I really ask myself; “is this photo ‘sponge’ worthy?” For a while I used to take photos for other people. Thinking… “OMG, I […]

    Amazing post Kim!!! You eloquently describe the bumps of being a “momographer”. Thank you for sharing your thoughts!ReplyCancel

    I love your photos followed by your post, I can connect to your story being a mother myself to four kids, no matter what I do there is a camera in my purse, or in my hand nearly all day. People ask me why I take so many photos and my answer is simple, I need to remember these little moments. Every time I look back at a photo I can remember that exact day it was taken, I need my kids to remember all the joys and steps we took in life together as a family, if someone happens to leave this earth early its the photos and memories we have that will connect us back to them and the special times spent together. I don’t know if it was my dads passing in 2007 that triggered this camera/photo obsession or just the fact I have always loved photos, it doesn’t really matter to me anymore, all that matters is that I document every part of our lives with photographs. From the best moments to the saddest moments, its just all in photographs for us. I think our kids will love all that we have done photo wise when they grow up and become parents themselves, I am sure we are passing to them some wonderful moments and the importance of documenting their own children.ReplyCancel

      Agree 100%. My girls hate when I pull out my camera but later in life they will laugh at them all. My memory sucks at times so I need to be able to remember this life. ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

    I love this! I feel the same about photographs of my cats (bad comparison, I know…but it’s true!). Personally, I love seeing your photos of your children. You have such a creative eye and it is nice to see creative photos of kids for a change. Another photographer who takes a lot of kid photos is Jen Altman and I never get tired of hers either. Keep them coming! ๐Ÿ™‚

    P.S. Nice sponge reference. ๐Ÿ˜‰ReplyCancel

      Your cat is important to you, snap away! ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

We are all longing for the warmer temperatures to appear. The girls and I love rain, but not when it’s windy and freezing cold. Look the girls need rain boots and winter jackets with hat’s and gloves. Just doesn’t seem right. I’m glad they love their colorful rain boots because they cheer me up. Both […]
