Switching to film to shoot families was a really big deal! In the beginning for some reason, I was so nervous about it. I’d already been shooting weddings on film for a few years, so it seems a bit backwards that I would be more nervous about shooting a family session on film than a wedding! It was a slow process, and I really had to take my time. The biggest fear was being able to get good pictures of the little ones. How do you do that? They move around so much, and you can’t check the back of your screen to check if it looks ok. You really just have to nail it, and know what you’re doing. But as I’ve been shooting more and more, I realize that some the “imperfect” photos are actually the photos I love the most. The ones that show motion and movement, and really portray kids as they are.

This was one of my very first newborn sessions on film : )
