A couple months ago I caught a plane to the west coast. With two beach sessions on my calendar and a girls trip to Malibu planned, I had been looking forward to it all spring!
If you’ve been following along on my blog, you may have noticed I recently started shooting with film – and I’m absolutely in love. In addition to helping me be more intentional with every shot, it also makes travel photography so much fun. Instead of getting home, uploading, culling and editing the photos like I normally do with digital ones, I simply send them off to the lab. When the scans arrive in my inbox, it’s like Christmas morning!!
I get to experience the trip all over again with a fresh perspective, reliving my favorite moments. Because I’m more intentional about every shot I take, I don’t have to sort through hundreds of photos. I just have my top favorites that really resonated with me, and it’s the best feeling!
It also means I’m more present while traveling because I only pull out my camera for those must-have shots. Moving forward I’m planning on only bringing my film camera with me on trips because it makes the experience so much more natural for me!
Enjoy some of my favorite photos below! And shoutout to Allison from The Day Dreamer Next Door for planning everything. She blogged all about our Malibu itinerary here in case you’re planning on visiting.
