Personal // Portrait Photography Memphis TN

Today I am sharing sort of a catch all of some of the fun my twin daughters and I have been having this summer. I try to photograph my daughters on film at least once a month.  Since it is a lovely sunny summer here, this post is full of lots of water play surrounded by our friends and family.  Here you will see us cooling off with our best friend Erin while drinking chilly Sonic slushies, the day the twins learned how to “swim”, and family portraits from Father’s day with their new cousin, Koda.

This post is also part of the Film Mama blog circle. Follow along the links in provided in this circle to see other photographers from around the world, sharing their journey with film. This post also a mixed bag when it comes to film stock and camera, as there are three varieties of each here. I will try to identify for those who are interested. Please check out the next “Film Mama”, Tricia Burrough here.

ps.  Photographing the sky has become a favorite way for me to remember.  I love the look of clouds on film.

I shall love to listen… // Nature Photography Memphis Tn

“(…) you see the grain-fields down yonder? I do not eat bread. Wheat is of no use to me. The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad. But you have hair that is the color of gold. Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me! The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you. And I shall love to listen to the wind in the wheat…”

Yoshino Cherry Snow // Portrait Photography Memphis Tn

Memphis is full of Yoshino Cherry Trees.

The spring time is a pastel dream come true!

Petals softly floating in the breeze,

the sun filtering through the branches,

and new grass seems to be covered in confetti!

I’ve pulled out my old 35mm to use as my “carry around” camera.  I’m getting reacquainted with it & am surprised to see what is on each roll, because I use it in an infrequent, inconsistent manner.  Here is the progression of my orchid’s growth, and my favorite plants right now, succulents!
