Summertime in Paris

Getting film back from summer travels is definitely a favorite.

Summertime in Paris, July 2019, all taken with Kodak Portra 400 35mm film and my old, trusty Pentax K1000.

The Notre Dame fire was so, so unfortunate. It is currently under construction. Love these these delicate flowers in front.

Life, Lately

It is so good to be able to share some recent 35mm film. Life has been moving at such a fast pace lately, and we are finally at a point in our summer where things are settling down. The first half of summer was filled with visits from friends and family, traveling and attending summer weddings.

Now we are easing back in our routine for summer, which means a lot of time at home and exploring new creative ideas.

I’m trying to figure out where I’d like my business to go - what avenues I’d like to pursue, where I want to spend my time.

One thing is for sure - my love for film will never waver. I have so much more to share with you, soon!

Travels | Napa Valley

Travels | Napa Valley on 35mm film by Azzari Jarrett

It’s no secret that my husband and I love visiting Napa Valley. I’ve posted previous photos here, here, and here.

We were able to make a quick weekend trip at the beginning of March. We have such good memories there. It’s truly the only vacation where I actually feel rested when I return home.

This time of year is mustard season and Napa Valley is filled with a beautiful blanket of yellow. Here are 35mm film photos I captured with my Pentax K1000 and Kodak Portra 400 film. These were mostly taken at Frog’s Leap in Rutherford, Napa Valley, California.

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.

Puzzle pieces on 35 mm film by Azzari Jarrett

We worked on a puzzle together as a family.

January on Film, Part 2

The second installment of bits and pieces of my January 2018, captured on 35mm film.  And once again, as I stated in Part 1 of this series, these images feel very intimate to me.  The grain of the film definitely captures the mood, and maybe that's what makes me feel so vulnerable in sharing these. You can read more about this project here.

February currently underway. Looking forward to sharing those images in early March.

January on Film, Part 1

One of my personal projects this year to document my days on 35mm film

I am quietly and thoughtfully capturing one moment of my day on film, and waiting until the end of the month to develop and scan.  So far, I've found that taking only one photo is a challenge - I could easily take two, three, or four captures. And of course, waiting until the end of the month to see what I have captured is a treat.

Right now, I am using my Nikon F100 with 85mm lens, but I'm not putting any restrictions on my camera or film - just whatever I have on hand at the moment.   

Here is the first half of January, captured at different times of my day.  Most were taken in and around our home, with the exception of a quick trip to Charleston, South Carolina.  Also included are two photos of my youngest daughter who spends most of her days with me. 

I am surprised at how incredibly intimate these images are for me. Each evokes a since of certain memory for me.  I can't wait to see how this project evolves of the year.

I'll share the second half of January very soon.

Travels | Québec City, Part 2

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.

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.

One more installment of photos coming up - our day trip to Île d'Orléans, a quaint island about 15 minutes from downtown Québec City.
