I have a thing for black & white photography… I think all film photographers do. This series of photographs from Jen Davis shows why it grabs our hearts so.

Snowed in with my kids this winter, I decided to shoot a roll of Tri-X.  Here is a glimpse of our day.
Canon Elan II, 35mm, Tri-x, 35mm, developed and scanned by Indie Film Lab.

I love this series because it reminds me what an artist she is. Things in her world are a mess, they’re disorganized, but it seems as though, there’s a reason for it all. Little doll shoes, sea shells and sequins inspire her. She’s full of energy, laughter and music, but when she’s creating, she’s quiet and thoughtful. I hope she continues to find creative outlets throughout her life. Maybe I can get her into photography!
I love that medium format film comes in a roll of about 12 images. It’s just enough to tell a kid sized story, before they move on to the next one.


Thank you Ami for this fantastic submission! I am loving seeing your work lately and it is clear how passionate you are about film.

film mama friday | top ten

March 29, 2014

This theme of golden was so very much needed in these last dreary days of March. It’s raining here in Virginia right now and these images are making my soul happy!

The next theme will be: verdant  (your interpretation is wanted and celebrated here!)

Part of the beauty of film is in the finite. It’s knowing that you have a limited amount of shots and having the skill to make the most of those few frames. Quite often we have frames left at the end of a session or wedding and we use those few frames on who we love the most… our little ones. Katherine Harte of Sprout Portraits shares with us a shining example of making the most out of just a few frames…

film mama friday | top ten

March 14, 2014

This theme of “little” has been running through my mind all week as I’ve sat in my house – still, quiet… unshowered mostly, eating whatever is quickest, with warm, sleeping babies at my side. Warm from the fevers running through their tiny bodies fighting off yucky stuff. Warm from the piles of blankets on us. Warm from us. The flu is a basic, everyday thing but a mama tends to look at those fragile little bodies and worry seeps out with no warning. And that worry is accompanied by gratitude – knowing that right now they need you and only you – and that will only last while they are little.

I love that this theme celebrates that.

The theme for the next couple weeks will be: golden

From the photographer:

This is my daughter Georgia, shot on a Mamiya 645 on Portra 400 overexposed two stops. Sometimes I can catch her when she isn’t looking.

This theme of “memories” tugs at my heart. The ache and the pride that comes with watching their childhood slip away and glimpsing who they’ll become is something that all of us mamas feel. I love how these images capture the bittersweet of that.

The theme for the next two weeks is: little
