some old film shots

Here is my most darling girl – about two years ago! – photographed on film, with a few miscellaneous shots from our garden.  I’ve got a treasure trove of older photos to post.  It’s amazing to me that I thought this little tiny girl was so grown up at the time.  Now her legs are like stilts, and her hair flows down way past her shoulders.  It’s much less curly these days, too.  I’m so SO grateful to past-me that I took a zillion pictures of Symphony.  Each new age seems to squeeze out memories of the ones that came before, and looking through these old photos helps bring it back.  I do feel yearning for this tiny girl, but it makes me so happy to know that the person she is now is the girl of all of these ages combined, and that she’ll keep building on her amazing self as time passes.

You cannot imagine how loving and sweet Symphony is.  She’s sassy and very independent/ strong-willed, but she tells me how much she loves me every day – she has never yet stopped wanting hugs and kisses and cuddles – and she makes up heart-burstingly sweet songs about how wonderful I am.  So, you can see why I have to go overboard in sharing photos, stories and videos of my girl (mainly on my personal social media stuff).  We’re head over heels for her!

Quick film lesson: here’s underexposure:

Do I ever get tired of shooting weddings at San Francisco’s Civic Center/ City Hall?  No, I do not!  I love it, forever, and I always appreciate the chance to photograph a couple getting married there.  David and Janet had a summer wedding there, and we had the chance to enjoy brilliant sunshine as well as the romantic fog-wrapped Golden Gate Bridge.  Dreamy!

Kennon, Morgan, Harper and Eloise

These photos are ancient, now – and the kids way grown up! – but I love them.  Here are some photos of my dear cousin’s family, right before their littlest girl turned 1.

Eloise!  Ready to fly into being a toddler.

 Hey, that’s my kid/ assistant!

At a certain point, Symphony said “shouldn’t I be in this picture of your family, too?”  It’s happened before.

Michelle and Tom, Kunde Winery, Kenwood

Kunde is, hands down, one of my top 5 places to shoot.  And I’m so lucky to get to shoot there often!  Here’s Michelle and Tom’s wedding from last summer.  The light (and heat!) of the summer comes right back to me looking through these.
