I got this impromptu portrait of Kyle when out hiking with him and my hubby. It was taken on my SX 70 Alpha camera using The Impossible Project's PX680 First Flush film.
We hiked to Elephant Arch outside of St George, UT. When I took this photo, we were in the thick of the sand portion of the route. We all were moving a bit slower , so we noticed things a bit more. We took in the way the light was bouncing around the valley, and stopped to photograph the waves in the sand. It was happy and peaceful so I thought it would make a perfect moment to capture.

Kyle is going through some really hard times right now, so he said he's going to hang the original up where it will remind him to smile more. I think that's a great use for a photo.

Tim and Genevieve Polaroids

These two are so cute together. They were really fun to photograph, when I could photograph them. There was a lot of laughing going on during this session. 

These photos were taken at the Red Cliffs Recreational area outside of St George, UT. I used one of my Spectra Polaroid cameras and PZ 600 Silvershade film from The Impossible Project. This film is a lot of fun to use. It can result in black and white photos in the cold or sepia if the shots develop where it is hot. As you can guess, it was a hot, hot day when I photographed Tim and Genevieve. 

I'll share more of their session soon. The colors around Red Cliffs are just amazing.
