Long Summer Days on the Beach

One of the things I love about living near the coast is the ability to drop everything and head to the beach. It truly soothes the soul. Every problem I think I have, every decision I am mulling over, can be eased by sights and sounds of the ocean.

Sometimes, I have to remind myself. Two miles inland and you might think you are Anywhere, USA. But there is nothing better than making a detour to the beach. Bonus points when I get to capture our adventures on film.

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.

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.
