North Atlanta Fine Art Wedding and Portrait Photographer

Even though I mainly shoot with my DSLR camera (my beloved Nikon D700) I occasionally pick up my film camera and shoot just for the joy of shooting film. (I picked up an old and used Nikon N70 35mm film camera and only shoot it coupled with my 85 f1.8D.) Unfortunately I have not been taking notes on what film or settings I have used in the past but will try to remember to do so from now on. Anyways, on moving day I re-discovered 10+ rolls of undeveloped film that I had shot over the last three plus years. So of course I immediately sent them in to Indie Film Lab to be developed and scanned. Thank you again to the guys over there for doing such a fabulous job on my rolls of forgotten memories. Because that is what it felt like to me when I downloaded the scans today. Some shoots I remembered taking some film shots alongside my D700. However, there were some rolls with moments captured of my kiddos back from 2010 that I had truly forgotten all about! I am so happy that I took those pictures and literally captured those memories on film. I don’t even care that some are out of focus or not perfectly exposed. LOL Some actually got ruined because Zaynah decided to just open up the back and check out what it looked like inside the camera. hahah Others were practice shots taken by Zaynah who wanted me to teach her how to really take pictures. So those images will go down in history as Zizi’s first ever film captures. They are of me. Mostly blurry. Nevertheless….precious!

So here’s to all those forgotten memories. May they be captured on film, in our hearts and minds, and never truly lost.

Mikalah & Snickers. Taken on a very windy afternoon at our home in Purcell, OK.
Snickers was a kitten I picked up at Walmart for free. She was actually pregnant at the time I took these pictures. Unfortunately this day happened to be the very last time we spent with her. I do not know if her or her kittens made it or if some wild animal got to her before she went into labor.

So we have officially sold our house and moved out. We made the weight limit (thank heavens!) and now all our belongings are in storage. For once we moved to a new place where we actually have family in town. It is bliss! If you have ever lived away from family…you know what I am talking about. So for the last couple of weeks we have been graciously staying with my husband’s cousin and her family. The kids are loving it! This week(end) we will be celebrating Craig’s 34th birthday with his best friend and family in St Louis and hopefully the weekend after that we will be moving into our new home for the next several years.

In the meantime while we are in this in-between stage….we are enjoying our summer break. Enjoying life!

Wir haben offiziell unser tolles Grundstueck mit Haus verkauft und sind derzeit quasi Heimatslos. Die Moebelpacker kamen und haben alles gepackt und unsere Sachen sitzen jetzt in so einem Container. Zum Glueck waren wir unter dem max Gewicht. Puhh…so viel Zeugs das man ueber die Jahre ansammelt. Es ist dieses Mal das erste Mal seid Deutschland das wir umziehen und schon gleich Familie in der gleichen Stadt haben. Es ist ein wahnsinning tolles Gefuehl mal nicht ganz alleine zu sein. Da wir bis Ende naechste Woche noch mit dem Einzug in unser neues Haus fuer die naechsten paar Jahre warten muessen sind wir seid ca 2 Wochen hier bei Craig’s Cousine und ihrer Familie untergekommen. Die Kids lieben es besonders! πŸ™‚ Diese(s) Woche(nende) feiern wir Craig’s 34. Geburtstag in St Louis mit seinem besten Kumpel und dessen Familie.

Auch wenn wir mal wieder aus Koffern leben fuehlen wir uns hier soweit pudelwohl und freuen uns die kommenden Jahre in Warrensburg zu leben. Wir geniessen die Sommerferien in vollen Zuegen. Wir geniessen unser Leben!
