Life, Lately

Simple moments of my life captured on 35mm film from the last month or so. As always with film, these images feel so personal and intimate to me. I will always love how film captures my feelings and mood, in addition to what I see.

Nothing beats the first image from the roll.

Life on Film

Last year, I started a project which I affectionately called 2018 on Film. My goal was to take one photograph a day to document the simple, quiet moments. Around May, as things go, life got in the way and I didn’t finish out the year. I did pick up my camera periodically, taking a photograph here and there, but I didn’t complete the roll until this month.

These film images span from May 2018 - January 2019. I lost a few images in the middle of roll because I opened the back of my camera prematurely. My favorites from the roll:

As film goes, I was surprised to get back these little treasures of my life, moments I completely forgot about. So glad that I did!

Needless to say, my film camera is loaded once again. No hard and fast rules, but it feels really good to see my life through film.

April 2018 on Film, Part 2

The second half of April 2018 images captured on 35mm film. I wrote a bit more about my personal photography project for this year here. You can also view the first half of my film images in this post.

April brings the awakening of flowers in our yard. Also in April, my husband and daughter built a small garden in our backyard. Trips to the beach are a must as the weather warms up, one out of focus image and other quiet moments around the house documented.

Once again, I used my Pentax K1000 and Kodak UltraMax 400 35mm film for capturing these images.

May film images currently underway. I will share them in June.

April 2018 on Film, Part 1

I have had these images developed for over two weeks now, and I am just now getting the chance to post them! May is proving to be quite a busy month with end of the year activities for my girls, and of course, Week In The Life, which I participated in last week.

Nevertheless, I am still committed to this personal project and excited to share my quiet moments of April 2018, photographed on 35mm film. You can read more about my photography project for this year here.

A few of my favorite people are captured this in the first half of this month - my parents and my youngest daughter. My parents were in town for a week at the beginning of April, visiting for Easter.  So happy that I captured the portrait of my mom.  You'll also see her famous gumbo, captures from a dinner party, walks around town, paintings, afternoon baths, and simple corners of my home.  I also love how you can tell the weather is getting warmer from these photos.

Once again, I used my Pentax K1000 and Kodak UltraMax 400 35mm film for these images.

Second half of April on film coming soon.

March 2018 on Film, Part 2

The second half of March 2018 images captured on 35mm film. I wrote a bit more about my personal photography project for this year here. You can also view the first half of my film images in this post.

Our Spring Break was the last week of March this year.  I had originally packed my digital camera, and realized that I forgot to bring a memory card.  Hence, you will notice that I took more than one image in Asheville, North Carolina simply because I couldn't help but document the beauty that I encountered there. Being flexible with this project and making it work for me.

This month, I used my Pentax K1000 and Kodak UltraMax 400 35mm film for capturing these images.

Film images in April currently underway.  And as always, I will share in this space in May when I develop my film.

Quiet moments of March 2018, photographed on 35mm film. I wrote a bit more about my personal photography project for this year here.

I love how this project is keeping a camera in my hand. Sometimes I forget how much I love photography. Sometimes it feels like a hassle to carry my film camera wherever I go.  But getting my images back just makes my heart melt. And for that, I am grateful.

The beginning of March found me in Scottsdale, Arizona on a girls' trip. It was extremely hard to take only one photo a day during that trip! Also, Spring has begun to pop up in my images. I love how that is reflected in and around my home.

This month, I used my Pentax K1000 and Kodak UltraMax 400 35mm film for these images.

The second half of March, soon.

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.

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!

More pictures from our trip to Québec City, Québec. You can see my first installment here.

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.

Azzari Jarrett | Film | Quebec City

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.
