Since the spring, I have been learning how to shoot film. It has been wonderful going back to my “roots”. I started off with a 35mm Canon EOS 3. I photographed everything and made a ton of mistakes. I’m sure everyone at The Find Lab was a little worried about my first few rolls of film 😉 After getting into a groove, I upgraded my film camera to a Pentax 645n. I fell in love with her right after my first rolls were developed. Oh, what a beauty!

Over the summer, a group of fellow CM Pros over at Clickin’ Moms decided to a 30 day project. My project took a little bit longer since I stuck with film. I’m so glad I made it all the way through it! I only shot with 3 films: Fuji 400H, Portra 400, and Tri-X 400, so that’s what you’ll see below. Shooting only film has been quite the challenge…there’s no LCD screen to look at, no delete and reshoot to fix your settings. It’s made me an overall better photographer.

So, the good stuff…the photos. I included more than 30…I couldn’t let those extra faves sit in a folder:)

I am so excited that my first session of the year was this beautiful, 8 day old baby boy named Bentz. He has gorgeous brown hair, soft pink cheeks and a precious little coo. I adore his sweet button nose and squeezable belly. We started his session on a lovely white blanket and kept the session neutral, to focus on Bentz. I love the simplicity and beauty of his session. Mom happened to notice my black and white work hanging up in my studio and complimented it, so of course, I had to include some black and whites of him.

Happy birth day, sweet pea.

One of my goals this year was to be featured. I also really wanted to learn how to freelens, be published on a blog, nail down my style and maybe even win an award, if things were going well. I worked so hard to meet these goals and am so happy I met every one of them.

I had a wonderful time meeting this beautiful family for their fall photo session! These fall colors were absolutely gorgeous at perfect at our sunset session! I’ve been photographing these handsome brothers since they were newborns. Goodness, how time flies. I love watching my HCS Photography families grow! Looking forward to seeing them again soon!

XOXO~Heather
