Another Polaroid Summary of Avi

As this project progresses, from time to time I will post a collage showcasing the previous grids all together. Here are all of the various posts from the first week of Avi's life until now at week 23 (216 Polariods in total)! Next week, my post will be exclusivly of some new film by the Impossible Project. The results have been a big jump in instant film and I am really looking forward to have an in-depth review of the new emulsion. Stay tuned!


Avi, weeks 1 through 23.

All images taken with various folding SX-70 cameras. Film mostly from The Impossible Project and a few leftover packs of Polaroid. 

Avellana at 11 weeks in Polaroids {plus an image summary}

Another week, another batch of Polaroids to scan. Avi had a good week. She went on a hike, picnic, and a mommy-and-me movie {Men in Black 3}. We also learned that hanging her little toy owl does wonders for keeping her occupied during car rides. One thing that I get asked from time to time is what will I do with all of these Polaroids? In the end I don't know. Part of the beauty of this project is that there is no end. They may be a point where I go from one a day to one a week, but what the final outcome of this will be is something to think about. I could mount and frame the individual polaroids themselves, or use the scans and make a large print. At some point I'll have to figure something out. But in the meantime, below is a summary of the posts all wrapped into one image. Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I have been taking them.

Week 11

All images taken with various SX70 cameras in Impossible Project films: PX70 (12/11) and PX70 Cool.

Avi from day one until yesterday:

Another Peek {expired film fun}

Now that our life seems to finally feel back on track and all of our 2010 weddings are done and delivered, we have had a chance to evaluate our work flow for 2011.  This equals more time for us, more time for life, and more fun photos for our clients. We are doing more experimenting, buying loads of fun "write off-able" toys, and really making it a point to enjoy ALL aspects of our business. To start we have been adding back in more film. We aren't switching completely to film as we LOVE digital. We just both love medium format cameras (we are still debating which one we want to buy), Holgas, and polaroids. We want to make more effort to stay creative in our approach, knowledgeable on the benefits of using film in certain situations, and make sure we always approach everyone's wedding in a way that brings out the individuality and beauty of each couple. We feel that by shooting with different cameras and different formats will really keep us on our toes, enhance our style and ascetic, utilized the best of both digital and film,  and keep all our clients weddings constantly fresh and lovely. Even though we have about a million blog posts to do still from our past weddings/ shoots in 2010, that we are soooo excited to share, we wanted to show another peek into the first 2011 wedding we shot. These were shot with 6+ year old expired Kodak 160VC  hence the purple color edging (we think:) ) on a Mamiya 645.  Now, we more then likely won't use expired film very often, so it can be more predictable, it can sure do some rad stuff.

Stayed tuned for some awesome weddings of 2010 past and more from this lovely.



{found this} weekly photo

Sometimes when I (courtney) put together the blog post I tend to do them rather quickly and not always feature our absolute favorite pictures. (You think I would since I usually post WAY to many pics (which I vowed to stop)).Probably because I missed it in the crazy editing process or rushed to get the post up or was half asleep doing the blog post at 1AM. Anyways we are starting to compile a bunch of photos from past shoots that are different then what we usually show to keep things interesting here.... I will try to do one a week. TRY is the key word. :) Erin shot this. Love it. It is from this wedding during a lovely speech from her father.
