I met Stacey almost 20 years ago in college. She was my college roommate, Matron of Honor in my wedding and has remained one of my closest friends. We all were shocked when she got pregnant with these boys because she already had 4 kids, but God has blessed their family with them. I started documenting their growth 2 years ago. When talking about their 2 year shoot, Stacey told me how much they loved trains. We decided to bring some of their little trains and play on the big tracks in Franklin. I also brought my film camera and took some film shots you will see at the bottom.
This first one is one of my favorites!
I loved that Henri started to strip down on the tracks. It is such a 2 year old thing to do.
So sweet that Henri decided Micah needed help. Sweet moments.
More getting crazy on the tracks:)
This semester I have been taking a class on Color. It has forced me to get out my film camera and use my nice lens, which has been fun. I first fell in love with photography 12 years ago and then I loved going to pick up my prints. It was like Christmas opening the packages. My class has focused on shooting different film types and studying the difference between the coloring and the best way to expose that film. The next 7 pictures were taken with Kodak Portra negative film. It is my favorite film for shooting portraits.
They were stuffing their pockets full of rocks of course!
These last 4 pictures were taken with Kodak slide film. It was so fun to get the negatives of this film and be able to see the pictures clearly on the slide before we scanned and printed out the pictures.
