We stayed at the Auberge Saint-Antoine and I highly recommend it.  Located in the Vieux Port of Québec City, it was so convenient to walk everywhere. Such a quaint hotel, and one of my favorite parts of our visit was simply enjoying the room.

We had our own expresso maker in the room, and we spent early afternoons with the windows wide open enjoying a daily cup of expresso.  I enjoyed it so much that when we returned, I promptly ordered my own expresso machine.

Side note: I have been using Glossier skincare and makeup products for a while now and I absolutely love them. May warrant a separate post, if you are interested.

Travels | Québec City, Part 1

Hello Quebec City

To celebrate our wedding anniversary this year, my husband and I decided to celebrate in Québec City, Québec.  This was our very first time to Québec, and we had an excellent trip. Québec City sits on the Saint Lawrence River in Canada's mostly French-speaking Québec province. Almost everyone speaks French, but were happy to switch over English for us!

I packed only my Pentax K1000 for this trip. Mostly because I miss shooting with it. And it did not disappoint.

Cobblestone streets, flowers galore - I was in heaven!

I absolutely loved the charm of Old Quebec. It actually felt like we were in Europe.  Very easy to walk around and we loved the sites and sounds of Old Quebec. 

More photos, soon.

Recently on Film

It's been a while since I have posted any of my film images.  I'm just now realizing how much I miss it.  And truthfully, it is becoming to pretty expensive to buy and develop film.

Here are some recent captures, mostly taken in February and March of this year.

I'm excited to announce that I am teaching my first online class, Pocket Prompts 25 over at Big Picture Classes!  If you've ever wondered about my creative process, or how my layouts come together, this is definitely the class for you.

Azzari Jarrett | Pocket Prompts 25

In this class, I will walk you through 5 of my favorite photo taking techniques.  I will show you how to incorporate film in your layouts (something that is near and dear to my heart).

I will also review 5 journaling techniques that I use in my layouts to help capture the stories of my family.

I've also included in depth videos of how my layouts come together - things to keep in mind when working on a layout.

Numbers Story Theme

I still love working on story theme layouts using Ali Edwards' theme kits.  I enjoy the monthly prompts to document my story as opposed to documenting our family story which I do with my Project Life spreads.

Azzari Jarrett | Numbers Story Theme

January's theme was numbers, and there was so much goodness included in the kit.  Honestly, I completed 4 layouts with the kit!  So many stories to tell.  And as a math minor in college, and a Type A personality, you can be assured that I thrive on numbers!

For the layout I'm sharing today, I printed a 2.5 x 11 inch copy of my photobooth strip from the Ace Hotel during my trip to Portland.

I included the "numbers" piece with a list of numbers that make up my life. I love adding things that are true for me right now.  I know they will change in the future. I added a additional piece of washi tape to the right side of my layout and stamped the date at the bottom.

Here's how it looks in my album.

Azzari Jarrett | Numbers Story Theme

I am using a We R Memory Keepers 8.5x11 Classic Leather Album to hold all of my story layouts.  I slipped the completed layout in a  8x5 x 11 inch page protector.

January on Film

With all of the recent changes in my life, I have been making an effort to carve out time for personal projects on film.  

Capturing small moments never fails to bring me joy.  

A few recent captures ~

This orchid is thriving on our bathroom windowsill - loving the humidity and light.

Shadows and light in my home studio.

Afternoon bubble baths, just because.

Peaceful walks to and from school.

A house is not a home without plants.  These are loving the morning light.

All captured on Impossible Color Instant Film, which I am finding is bit temperamental when developing, but still beautiful, nonetheless.
