world camera day

Now here’s a holiday I can really get behind! :) The photo above shows three of my vintage cameras which are only a small portion of my collection. It might be time to sell some on eBay since many of them have been in a box for several years now. :( At one time, before the girls came along, I went through rolls of film while playing with many of these cameras (particularly the Lubitel on the left). Sadly, it’s been quite awhile since I’ve done any film photography but I can’t bear to part with some of these cameras.

The Lubitel 166B, built in the 1980s in Russia, is a twin lens reflex camera (the kind where you look down at the viewfinder on top of the camera) that takes medium format film. I loved shooting with this camera and it was a staple in my arsenal during nature walks and mountain hikes. I fully plan to put this camera back into rotation and have some fun with film photography in the near future but, in the meantime, here are three images that I took with this camera between 2003 and 2005:

The Kodak Brownie Six-20 is another medium format camera built between 1946-1955. Even though the film for this camera is no longer made, I was able to use currently available film in it back when I first bought it off eBay. I’m not sure if I’ve scanned any of the film so I’ll update this post with a photo when I find it!

The Kodak bellows camera on the left was likely manufactured sometime in the 1930s or 1940s. I bought this one purely for its vintage aesthetics. :)

This year I’ve been slowly purging and decluttering and working on embracing a more minimalist lifestyle. It only makes sense that some of my cameras will be on the chopping block soon but I will hang on to a few favorites because they bring me such joy. :)

becca | pet photography

Little dogs always seem to have such huge personalities! This young lady purchased my donated pet session to the Boulder Valley Humane Society last year and she finally called to schedule her session with her super cuddly pup, Becca. I met her at a trail in Lafayette for some fun romping around to capture Becca being her boisterous self but as soon as her person picked her up, she turned calm and mellow. I just adore seeing the connection that other people have with their fur-babies!

kira | the watershed school

I’ve known Kira’s mom since before she was born and it’s no surprise that Kira has grown into such a kind, creative, and athletic girl! She’s a volleyball player and a cellist, loves to color her hair different colors and has eclectic taste in music. We had a great time during her evening session at Wonderland Lake and I’m excited to see what the future holds for this unique and talented girl!
