The only thing better than doing an extended family session is doing a session with your cousins. Jamie’s cousins came to town for a sweet little family sesh a few weeks ago & there was lots of sunshine, some of the most adorable kids in all the land, and all the roses June has to offer.

YOU GUYS. THIS IS DEANNE AND SHE IS AMAZING.
Doing more film photography again is on my (long, long) list of things to do one day, but in the meantime, using old cameras as props is pretty rad.
Do any of you remember using rotary phones? Both my grandmothers had one, and I remember how frustrating it would be when you missed a number and had to start all the way at the beginning. They're so PRETTY though, it's hard to pass them up when I see them around town. I'm also working on a portrait project series with old phones - it'll be in the works after I finish the 24 Hour Portrait Project & Guys and Flowers, and I'm stoked to get started.
The 24 Hour Portrait Project begins June 22-23, you can follow along on Facebook or Instagram - and I'm still allowing some last minute entries! We have a couple more spots I would absolutely love to fill, so please don't hesitate to put your name in if you're interested and want to help support the project!
Anyways, Deanne and I had an awesome time as spring came to the valley, wandering around gardens with a bunch of retiredish fabulous technology.
Ok ok ok ok, golden hour + rad people + just the most fantastic light, this beauty session with Melissa was a dream!
I had the chance this past spring to photograph my dear friend, and fellow photographer, Jennifer Foik's family - they're some of my favourite people, the roses were out at Gwynne Vaughan, and we had perfect shooting weather - we had a blast!
