I thought about you yesterday and wanted to share with you how I pair our personal old family pictures with your new ones and why it matters.
If I have photographed your family before you have seen me shooting with film. You have maybe even been someone who has said, “I didn’t know they even made film anymore!” They do and there is a big reason of why I still use it.
The picture above is of my grandmother. She had just gotten done swimming at “Pappy Jacks” on what I’d imagine was a hot, Summer day. There are so many reasons why I love this image but one reason that can relate to you is that it flows with the first image of my little girl taken a year ago. They are uniform, the flow seamlessly together, they layer through your home beautifully… and it is because they were both photographed in the same way – on black and white film.
How does this relate to you? You have family pictures like this. You have old pictures stored away of your family that deserve to be treasured and even more, that have the ability to be paired with images of your family today. That is timelessness in its truest form.
That, my friend, is why I still shoot black and white film of your family. I want you to have the treasure of pairing the days past with the today – continuing the legacy of your family in a beautiful and thoughtful way.
I did a short video here of my thoughts on this topic if you are more of a video person!
