Emeryville Lifestyle Maternity Session

My last post was over a year ago. As you may know, last year, we had a new addition to our family, a baby girl. While I continued to work throughout 2017, this site has been neglected for some time in order to make room in our lives for a whole new person, and quite a demanding one. :)

I love that I have this session to share as my first post in 2018. It seems appropriate. Karly, the glowing and beautiful mother-to-be, was my son's babysitter since before he could crawl, and stayed with us until he started preschool. Needless to say, this session was very close to my heart, to be able to capture her with her husband during this remarkable time in their lives.

Recently, I've been bringing along at least one film camera with when I shoot lifestyle sessions, especially sessions with older children or adults only, which allows a bit more time to focus on the shooting. I try to shoot a couple of rolls, both color and black and white. This is all just for fun, but I'm loving the results, and I make sure to send them to my clients as well, and have been getting pretty good response for them. I believe I will continue to do the same for my 2018 shoots. 

Below there a couple of film shots nested between the digital. While I think the difference is quite obvious, I don't necessarily think one is better than the other. Digital or film, they are simply different styles, and I love them both. Can you spot the film shots? :)
