getting my film legs back | personal project | red deer family photographer

Every February I feel the heavy slump of winter and yearn for inspiration. Film photography is something that always boosts my creative spirit and I think I have inadvertently started an incredible personal project.
There is this light that happens this time of year around 10am at our patio door, a light that stops you dead in you tracks. We are lucky to have as much sun as we do in the Province considering the bitter cold that wreaks havoc on us for months on end. Last year I was still relatively new to film (I say new but like most, thats where I started off but got lost in the world of digital) and I wanted to experiment. So, I grabbed 4 cameras, 4 different film stock and my somewhat willing 3 and half year old Jensen and spent 10 minutes rapidly metering and shooting before he called it quits. I wasn’t expecting much but was blown away when I got the scans back and decided this would be a great little growth project I could concur every desolate February. To see those images, please click here.
This year my youngest, Hudson who is now almost 2, decided to join in. It’s hard for me to accurately describe the sense of wonder when I see these, I day dream about putting these all together after the years and seeing how much they have grown.
Thank you for looking…..

I am super excited to be a part of another little blog circle, and this one is all Canadian! what is 10 on 10, you ask? It's pretty simple, 10 photos taken on any given day.

Living in the prairies but being from Montana, Jessica wanted a more mountainous surrounding for her family photos. With her husband and three beautiful children, we trekked up to Spray Lakes in Canmore and found the perfect location for exploring. We were greeted in the most Canadian way, by two giant moose...they were a bit camera shy, which was totally fine, they scare the crap out of me!
