Valley Forge Park | Film Photographer | Winter Shoot with Lauren

Dear friends,

It’s been ages since I’ve blogged! HI! Do I even know how to blog anymore? Let’s find out…

When most of your photographing is done during the warmer months, a project here & there during your down time, is a must! Well, for me it is. I have to be creating throughout the year, or else I’ll feel stagnant etc. I met up with one of my girlfriends for a winter shoot at the Valley Forge National Historical Park. I brought flowers & ribbons & the forecast brought a little rain. Lauren & I used to take walks in this specific area of the park. You’ll see the beautiful stone structure & a little bridge in the distance. It’s a lovely spot, sort of tucked away. I love it. Lauren’s green dress made up for the bare trees & the pop of red, discouraged the winter sky from washing out.

I shot with my 35mm Nikon, using Portra 400 (my favorite film stock!) as well as Fuji X-TRA 400. This film works so beautifully on those dreary winter days & lastly, a Kodak disposable camera.

Flowers are from Produce Junction & the ribbons are Silk & Willow.
