I have been keeping my Nikon F100 on my table this past month, just to remind me to pick it up and capture some of the daily beauty around me.  I find that if my cameras are stored away, I don't use them as often as I would like.

It is taken me a while to work through this roll of film, taking a few shots here and there.   One of the things that I love most about film is that it forces you to wait, to savor those quiet moments you often overlook.  

Currently - December

I can't believe it is the middle of December, already.  

Our days are filled with winter recitals and performances, holiday parties, and end of the year activities.  As much as I love this time of the year, I know it is essential to carve out quiet time for myself.  All it really takes is simply picking up a camera (any one that is loaded with film), quietly composing the image, and pressing the shutter.  Goodness, indeed.

Here are a few things I have been enjoying this month.

Loving Kirstin's 5 tips for winter mobile photography. Equally mesmerized by her film images from Santorini, Greece.

Inspired by Andrea's progress on her December Daily album.  I am currently working on my own album, and I'm planning on sharing an update soon.

Sad that the iconic holga film camera is now dead. 

Excited to try some of Ashley's techniques for including photos and artistic backgrounds in her traveler's notebook. 

Sharing 3 ways to creatively store your instant film photos over at Viewfinders last week.  I always love when I am invited to guest post there.

Stumbled on this article, and I couldn't agree more with #4 and #7.

What have been enjoying lately?

On the Table | Black and White Photography by Azzari Jarrett

I've been away for a bit longer than I expected. 

There is nothing better to recharge your spirit than to get out of your normal routine, change things up a bit, and disconnect for a while.  Add to that an epic trip to the Pacific Northwest, and I feel like my creative spark has returned.  

I have so much to share with you, beginning with my guest post over at Viewfinders. I'm sharing a few of black and white instant film photos and my thoughts on one of my favorite films being discontinued.  

I hope you join me there. Much more, soon.

Whenever life gets a bit hectic, I like to retreat to what is familiar.  And for me, that usually means grabbing my camera and capturing the morning light on my table.  I am always drawn to the shadows and light.

And when I cannot control all of the change going on around me, I love to keep up with little rituals that bring me comfort - preparing my coffee in the morning, tending to my small garden, and keeping fresh flowers in our home.

Change has always been hard for me, I know this and I accept it.  The key is to be able to bend and adapt.  And capturing bits and pieces my life always helps to see me through.

Currently - April

Amazed that it is April already.  2015, slow down...

Listening to my body and took a rest.  I did not intend to be away from my blog for a week - but the demands of motherhood will always come first and foremost.  My youngest was sick with a really bad cold and just as she was starting to feel better, I became sick.  And sometimes it's best to just step away and rest, refuel.  It was very much needed.  

Inspired by Sarah's film images from last summer. And Jade's instant black and white film captures in New York. 

Designed a set of flair badges for Scrapbook and More, complete with phrases of my favorites - film, coffee, documenting. Loved how they turned out & I can't wait to use these in my project life spreads.  More soon.

Loving Kari's black and white project life layout.  So good.

Getting so close to the launch and pre-order of On The Table, Volume 2 - a collection of film images all taken on my kitchen table.  Don't forget to sign up for my newsletter for up-to-the-minute updates. 

Looking forward to spending this Easter weekend with my parents.  I love the holidays when we are together.

So happy to announce that these hasselblad captures are a part of a new series of film images that I captured for my newest photography project - On The Table, Volume 2.  Those who have been with me for a while are familiar with On The Table, a collection of images that were all taken on my kitchen table, entirely on film.  You can see pages from that original self published book on this post

Volume 2 will continue with that theme.  I truly believe that film images are best enjoyed together, in print format.  

If you are interested in following my weekly progress, I will be sending out updates once a week via my newsletter.  Newsletter subscribers will get a sneak peek at my progress as well as be the first to know when the book is published. 

You can sign up here.

So excited to jump into this photography project!
