Exposing Children to Photography Exhibits

Azzari Jarrett | Exposing Children to Photography Exhibits

Please join me over on Viewfinders today as I share some lessons learned when bringing my daughters to our local art museum.

It is so important to expose our children to the arts, to plant those seeds of curiosity.

Travels | île d'Orléans

Today I'd like to share the last of my film photos from our trip to Québec City, Québec.

You can see my previous images here: Travels | Québec City, Part 1 and Travels | Québec City, Part 2 

île d'Orléans is a small, quaint island located in the Saint Lawrence River, about three miles east of downtown Québec. We rented a scooter to explored the island for an entire day on our own.

Vignoble Ste-Pétronille - beautiful views and winery.

We continued on to Chocolaterie de Île d’Orléans - the absolute best chocolate I have ever tasted.

I ran into this nice lady sitting down with her watercolor pad and watercolors, and immediately fell in love.

A stop at La Maison Smith for coffee and pastries.

We absolutely enjoyed our anniversary trip.

The people of Québec City were so nice, and the city itself, so quaint. I cannot wait to go back!

Up Story Theme

As most of you know, creativity ebbs and flows. There is a time for creating, a time for reflecting, a time for quiet and reflection, and there's also finding time to actually share what you have created.

I completed this layout almost a year ago. Took these photos of my layout almost a year ago. And it is only now that I am getting around to actually sharing it. Sometimes I have put work aside for a while and come back to it. And I'm totally fine with that.

That being said, I love working on story theme layouts using Ali Edwards's story kits. This story kit really spoke to me.

Azzari Jarrett | Open Story Theme

This time last year, I was still getting used to my new city and my new home. I wanted to document the ways that I could open up. And for me, that meant opening up to a slower pace of life, new people and experiences, making time for what's important, and opening up honestly to my girls.

I used peach card stock to match with the wall in my photo, and printed the word "Open" at the top.  Everything else is from Ali's "Up"kit.  I tried to link the kit, but unfortunately I think it's too old now!

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.

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.

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.
