Memories.

Taking photographs is top of my list of things to do more of, not necessarily photographs to go in my portfolio, just photographs that capture everyday memories. My mum has so many photo albums full of pictures that we loved making and still love looking through. Unfortunately the albums come to an end quite abruptly because we got a digital camera & never got around to getting those photographs printed. Inevitably digital files get deleted or forgotten, memory cards get misplaced and those images are lost forever. I don't want to miss anything anymore.

Tomorrow I am going to dig out the smallest film camera I own, make sure I take it everywhere and start capturing those memories again. I want to have scrapbooks bursting with photographs that I can look back on in twenty years time and chuckle at how much life has changed with the people I love. ♥

  1. I totally agree with you, flicking through a album is SO much nicer than pulling out a memory card and looking at them on a screen! xoxo

  3. I love these photos Jennie. I think everyone prefers to hold a photo rather than look at one on screen. I'm always blown away by your amazing photography skills. What type of camera are you using here? xx

  4. @peachykeen - absolutely! :)

    @katy - Disposable cameras are lovely! I don't use them enough either!

    @emma - Aww thank you lovely! I'm using a fuji instax mini 7. they're a brilliant alternative to polaroidsx because the film is so much cheaper! the instax mini cameras themselves have gone up in price quite a bit recently but I love mine. the little credit card sized pictures are super cute too :)

  9. Gorgeous photos, so whimsical and beautiful! I like to try and get my digital photos developed and into albums, but it's so true, sometimes they go missing and forgotten about ):
