I purchased a Canon 1v which is a 35mm film camera and shot a couple rolls of film to test it out. These were shot on Kodak 400 film that was included with the camera. The colors are more vibrant, saturated and warm compared to the Fuji stock I usually shoot on. And of course, everything was developed and scanned by Richard Photo Lab. They do a phenomenal job with film and I love them for it!
This is Ellie going through her favorite cupboard and Akira watching her from a distance.
Ellie’s wearing a Cynthia Rowley romper that I absolutely adore on her. I wish I looked that cute in one piece jumpers.
After a meeting with some clients I met up with my friends and family for lunch at Japonaise in Old Tustin.I love their hamberg steak. Just ask for it extra well done and crispy on the outside and it’s …. awesome. After lunch you have to stop by Cream Pan next door and get yourself some strawberry croissants, azuki creams, and some of their yummy sandwiches to go!
Ellie is totally a Momma’s girl. I think that’s just how it is when they’re little. Often times I’ll hear Jeff ask Ellie, “What am I, chopped liver?”
Our friend Rob. I wish I had gotten one of his girlfriend Debbie as well. She was sitting next to me.
I made that felt hair clip for Ellie. It matches her dress perfectly.
As we were leaving Japonaise we ran into my friends Lucy, Henny and her adorable little daughter Hannah. I couldn’t resist taking a few of Hannah!
Later on, we spent the rest of the early evening outside playing in the grass and walking the neighborhood.
Ellie in her adorable baby squat dismantling a poor flower. Well, I say “poor” but really I hand her those flowers to slow her down so that I can actually get some shots of her.
A bit off focus, but I love it regardless.
And then while Jeff washed cars on the drive way Ellie and I took a walk around the neighborhood. She insisted on walking by herself. When did my baby get so big and independent?
