Photographing Mahalia and her lovely parents was my first experience shooting an entire session on film alone. Â I did bring digital gear as backup, but aside from 3 shots in the beginning that I didn’t end up using, these pictures are a collection of the 4 rolls I used that morning to tell their new story. Â I really enjoyed how simplistic it all was, just capturing their newness together and how beautiful it all is. Â No props, no styling or posing–just this family, just as they are. Â Beautiful.
Images captured with Contax 645 and a collection of Kodak Portra 800, Tri-X, and Ilford HP5 films.
