Empty Nesters Photo Shoot For My Parents


I saw this trend going around a few months ago and thought, "Huh, that's so clever." Then put that memory in the back of my mind. While I was racking my mind on what to get my mom for her birthday it dawned on me for what to get her. My mom isn't one for items but she loves photographs and meaningful gifts. With my brother and Ana moving out in the beginning of October, my parents will officially be empty nesters! I decided to set up an "empty nesters" photo shoot and get her a ton of great items from Shutterfly using those photos. When they saw the props her and my dad busted out laughing with excitement! I was so happy to give my mom a more meaningful and fun gift that I knew she would love 😍!! And here's how the photos turned out!!

I love how these photos came out and I love that my parents loved them even more!! 

I Got Some Film Developed


I own a couple film cameras which–surprise–don't get as much attention as they should. But when I do use them it normally takes me months (or looks like a few years) to get the film developed. I'm sharing some photos that came back recently and today we're doing a film dump!


Circa 2007

This roll of film was sooooo funny to get back. Because I didn't even know these photos existed. I got back some film from possibly middle school? Great quality photos that clearly were taken out of a day of boredom 😂.

Oliver & Co.

To finish off one of the rolls I took a few pics at home featuring my adorable dog Oliver and my adorable boyfriend Omar.

Lake Anna

This has to be from a few years ago, but I guess one weekend to Lake Anna I took some film photos. These actually came out really nice!!

A New York Skyline

Okay, this was about two years ago when I walked to Central Park to read and brought my film camera to take some photos. I took one–yup, just one–photo of the NYC skyline before it started to pour down rain and I had to head back to the hotel. Oh well, still pretty 😍.

Ghost Photo Shoot

When Ana and I did the Ghost Photo Shoot Challenge we took some photos on film too. These photos were sick! The whole shoot was fun, but the film photos turned out the best!!
