Before she came she made the decision to have a good time with those she loves the most. The morning of the big night she insisted that they have a little photo shoot to hold memories in forever… Little did she know that later on she would be wholopsing… #saftas12 #BlackQueen #happiness #positivevibesonly

about a year ago, I took the gamble of solely using a film camera to document my first experience of Italy. with little to zero experience of the craft, the anxiety of developing my first 5 rolls of film hit me. blurry, out of focus and 'too warm of a tone' was the common motif of the films and yet I couldn't have been happier with the imperfection; each image carried a memory, a motion memory. a warm experience that can be recalled through merely glimpsing at the image. here are a few of those warm experiences (including those that cost us missing our flight back home 😩).
