oh, hey. remember us? we’re dave and jessi. we run this gig. no, we didn’t die or fall off the earth. we had another kid… i thought after over a year of absence on the blog, you all deserved a bit of an explanation. see, one baby was doable- i (jessi) could work during nap time or after bedtime. two was a game changer. like, a GAME CHANGER. big time. most days, i just try to get dressed, and if i get a shower? hey oh!! * now that hazel is 3 (what?!) and isaiah is 1
(whaaaaaat?!) i’m working on getting back on my a-game, whatever that means.
so, here i am. blogging the very things that took my attention away from here in the first place! dave and i have recently rediscovered our film cameras and are having a blast capturing life with them. personally, i feel like it’s reconnected me with why i started making images in the first place and has made me a better photographer. and it’s really fun to hear the shutter hammer down and have no idea what’s coming until you get your film developed! AND we bought a film scanner so we can actually do something with all our film images- totally exciting. the images you’re about to feast on are all of our family, and all over the last few months with our film cameras. (his- a pentax k1000, hers- a canon AE1) and don’t worry. i’ll get back to posting our images we get paid to take (feels wrong calling them “work images” because it doesn’t feel like work…) soon. in fact, i have about 10 weddings to blog. !! until then…
*don’t get me wrong- being a parent is the best thing i have ever done. i love being a mama and my babies are the coolest things ever. but it’s still hard. real hard. but also beautiful. real beautiful.
