Vacation on Film | Cape Cod photographer

Well, it happens to be April vacation this week for my kids. Unfortunately, we’re not going anywhere. But fortunately today was so nice, we actually went to the beach! And to be honest, I’ve been quite spoiled this winter. First, a trip to Jamaica with my husband and friends to celebrate my 40th birthday. And just over a month later, a trip to Disney with the family. On both occasions I brought just my trusty 35mm film camera (Nikon F100), my 50mm l.4 lens and a bag of various film stocks. It was so liberating to come home and not have to work at processing my own vacation images. I also got some much needed practice with metering and some different films.

I am so happy with the look and feel of film and that fact that I don’t have to spend hours in front of the computer processing it, I am really psyched to incorporate more of it into my sessions and weddings this season. Today, I was excited to see that one of my recent shoots was featured on Style Me Pretty. And even more excited, that out of 27 images they featured, 13 of them were shot on film!

So, here’s a taste of Jamaica on film.

Bob Marly shots. DANGEROUS!Ahhh. This is the life!

Anytime you need a drink while you are lounging on your beach chair, you put the little red flag in the sand and a waiter or waitress comes over! Oh, I think this should happen at home!

This was honestly the best vacation EVER. We relaxed, we played tennis, we swam, we ate, we drank, we saw great music, we got sun and we laughed and laughed and laughed… I think we need to go back every year for my birthday!
