Itching to get back out on the road. Everyday we’re getting closer to finishing up our van build and as exciting as it is. Some days are just hard. You work so hard and things seem to have no end or solution. It can get tough. But keeping our chins up and our end goal in mind helps to push us through. The build is going better than expected causing more headaches than expected as well. We’re pushing through knowing that we’ll get to truly enjoy this once it’s all done. #vwbus #vanlifebuild #alifeworthroaming #35mm

This was our last week of distance learning. We'll continue our learning but without Google meet. I guess that means summer is here! 41/365 #thepointersdocumented #pointerfilm365

I’ll be honest, it’s hard to figure out what to write when the news is so newsy, to put it lightly. Evaluating the fact that this isn’t my platform and FILM is clearly the flag we fly, I’m left thankful that film has helped me develop my own platform and gives me the means to fly the flags I believe in. Also, that film has taught me to slow down and learn the hard thing. _ Nikon 8008s | TriX + 1 | developed and scanned by @thefindlab _ Takeover by @castironphotos _ #findinabox #thefindlab #filmisnotdead #castironphotos #instaproofs #castirontakeover #instaproofs #thehybridcollective

What do moms say? They feel awkward in front of the camera, they are not good at posing!! The reality- we don’t need to pose for this, right? it’s a love at first sight and it’s even harder to look like you hate that baby!! Now problem number 1 is sorted.❤️ . . 2- They think their arms are too big after giving birth!!! Who cares about the arms? The reality - we ‘do’ care about the arms!!!! 🤣🤣😊🤣And I care about the arms, I want my moms not to only to ‘feel’ good but to ‘look’ good too. The Reality- the camera angle helps so much, good MUA who understands that ‘less is more’ ☝️helps so much!!!! Reality- baby looks cute is the priority and equally important is - mom looks cute!! Trust me, it’s hard to believe that you can feel cute when every night is sleepless, and during the day smells like breast milk. 😱😱😱🙄I feel you, I was there and I will take care of it, from the time you book, we will talk about every thing that helps you to look at your best. Problem number ‘2x’ is sorted.❤️ . . Last word! If those worries stopped Wendy from booking this newborn session, what a shame that baby Olivia won’t have ‘this’ picture as a treasure to pass on to her next generation!!! Am I right?❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️. . . . #maternityportrait #maternityshoothk #hkmaternity #noboudoir #hkmaternityphoto #hkmaternityshoot #thefountcollective #motherhoodanthology #filmisnotdead #ishootfilm #contax645 #fuji400H #findinabox #thefindlab #fineartnewborn #hknewbornphotographer #hkfamilyphotographer #motherhoodphotography #motherhoodonfilm #thefountcollective #themotherhoodanthology #shotonfilm #contax645 #lightandairy #filmmama #findinabox #thefindlab #hkbrand #hknewborn #hkphotographer.

With one more teacher parade yesterday, Jane closed the book completely on elementary school, and she didn’t take it well. All the excitement of going to Jr. High (maybe????) can’t drown out the sorrow of leaving behind this part of her childhood. Such a tender heart, my sweet Jane. I made a short film about her struggles with growing up yesterday... maybe I’ll put it on IGTV. But it’s pretty close to my heart, it’s one of those things that’s hard to share. ❤️❤️❤️ #Portra400 #thefindlab #52rollsbycami (light roll) #thefindyourstory #pentax645N #thebokehfactory #kodakprofessional

#dearchinatown, a series: When I took this photo in 2017, I had already started to consider life after journalism. This was far from an overnight decision, but I knew I would have to leave eventually — and I wanted to do so on my own terms. So I looked at nonprofits in the northeast and mid-Atlantic. It was a casual search. But one evening in 2018, reenergized to look harder, I searched for nonprofit jobs in Houston. A position at Asia Society appeared. Community groups and associations have always proved crucial to the representation and survival of minority groups in the United States. As I read more Asian American history, I’ve been stunned by the sheer number of organizations formed — and all in response to discrimination, disenfranchisement, and institutionalized “othering.” These organizations exist for a number of reasons: activism and advocacy, liaising, archiving and documenting, enabling greater understanding, etc. Asia Society exists principally for that final reason: to uplift communities and to connect them in new and different ways. And — hardly a spoiler alert — I got the job. During this Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, and especially during this time of renewed (not new) anti-Asian racism and brutality against Black people, the work, importance, and strength of these many organizations — including @chsamuseum, shown in this photo — are truly on display. May opened with a wealth of online discussions and articles as organizations and advocates called for Asian American communities to stand together and for each other, Black people, and other people of color. May is closing as the conversation and need for support become ever more urgent. Every year, the work continues beyond Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, and this is particularly necessary — and dire — after this month and in this year.

I make time to capture details from your wedding. I make time to capture details in your session with me, why because they are important to me. I can’t to do this when weddings happen again ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #details #thelittlethings #filmweddingphotographer

Got a roll back from February, just prior to Covid. These were of a trip to the Burke Museum at University or Washington. Such a great day of fun, learning and dinosaur bones.

This weekend I decided to pursue a passion project. I hope to get the film scans this week to share it with you! I think my fellow photographers would agree there are certain aspects of business that are up for re-evaluation-especially when starting out. For me, that’s how much film I’m using and sharing. With weddings being re-scheduled and canceled it’s given me a long term goal to focus on and since telling your goals with others keeps you more accountable here it is: I want my feed to be film only by the end of the year. For now this may mean sharing more personal projects/trips, but I hope you’ll stick around and see WHY that change is being made. Happy scrolling! #disneyland #disneylandcalifornia #ektar100 #thefindlab #35mm #canon1v #disneylandphotography #filmshooterscollective #sheshootsfilm #filmisnotdead #filmonly #bakersfield #kerncounty #personalwork #tellon

Your gram and your momma will tell you, when the stuff hits the fan, saltwater heals. Gargled, swam, cried. There’s healing that comes in the chemicals and washes of film development, too, even if I’m not there for it. _ Nikon 8008s | TriX + 1 | developed and scanned by @thefindlab _ Takeover by @castironphotos _ #findinabox #thefindlab #filmisnotdead #castironphotos #instaproofs #castirontakeover #instaproofs #thehybridcollective

De. Tails. We love ‘em. #Repost @jenclappphoto ・・・ When planning your wedding, there is so much work, effort and care that goes into the process. I absolutely love doing portraits on the wedding day but for me it is also important to capture every detail that tells your wedding story.

Life. It isn't always pretty... but it still should be documented. I will have to look in my notes to see why there were tears. I think she did something mean to her brother and was called on it. 39/365 #thepointersdocumented #pointerfilm365

I always enjoy spending a few extra moments with my brides right before they walk down the isle. Getting to capture all of her excited jitters and of course touch ups they might have before her “I do’s.” These photographs flow perfectly in your wedding album remembering how exciting your day was! #gettingreadyphotos #bridalphotos #southernliving

I’m sorry I’ve been pretty absent here lately.. moving and buying a house takes more time and energy than I thought. Can’t wait to be in our new home together! . . To all you home owners, tell me one thing you wish you would have done when buying your first home! Any advice is welcome❤️

Heather and her family’s film scans came in today and making me real jealous that they get to live there and we are back in the mountains.

This is my head today. Does anyone else have days when everything is clear and productive and then the next is just wasted? I cleaned the house and did laundry today, but it’s mid-afternoon with a looming deadline 2 days away, and I cannot get my head straight so I can get some work done! Blah! First, I need to quit looking at the news... #camifilm365 #52rollsbycami #thefindlab #ektar100

Sean and Ashley, one of my sweet Fall couples who I adore! 😍 Sunset at the Grand looked so good on these two!

Here’s an example of the ego-less FIAB community: though most of us love new gear, the biggest community push is to a) shoot what you’ve got, and b) choose the best camera for the situation, not the best camera period. So for my tumultuous, kinda self-conscious girl here, auto focus keeps me in stealth mode. A $150 outfit does the job that my $1500 medium format kit cannot.

Continuing on the double exposure theme. Double exposures are fun for me because you change the feeling of the image by adding another element. This is a combination of a self portrait double exposed on a letter with beautiful calligraphy from @paperlovemecalligraphy #pentax645nii #portra400film #kodakportra400 #thefindlab #filmphotography #filmisnotdead #istillshootfilm #doubleexposure #calligraphy #flowers #sfphotography #sfphotographer #bayareaphotography #bayareaphotographer

Chad Brown Ohana - 2018 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She was afraid of my #mamiyarz67 which is why I had to start a lot further back than I normally would and work my way forward. Granted, I don't blame her since the #rz67 is such a beast of a camera. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Side note she is a lot bigger now haha. . . . . #edreccoeliphotography #familyphotograhy #mamiyarz67 #projectfindmeaning #thefindlab #maili #oahu #filmisnotdead #kodakportra800pushed1stop #ohana #filmisalive #filmfeed #filmisnotdead

Yesterday I was thinking about the tricky ways I let myself be pressured into being someone else or feel embarrassed. They have to be tricky because I’m not twelve anymore and I’m confident and usually know what I like. But then there’s the times I feel self-conscious as I walk straight to the sale rack, or intimidated by the perfect face and lashes in front of me at fedex, or pretend I know how to pronounce Leica, or don’t buy things I like in case it makes me old ladyish. Something I wasn’t expecting as I’ve worked on being closer to Our Savior Jesus Christ, is that I feel that way less often. As I’ve tried to Hear Him I feel more confidence and permission to be me + to speak up + advocate for the things that are good for me + know exactly what those things are. I’ve felt acceptance and encouragement to make things the way I want to make them. And I feel appreciated for doing simple unnoticed things. #portra400 #pentax645 #thefindlab #filmmama #hearhim

Excited to get back to documenting families. But I never really stopped during this time as I was always pointing my camera at my family. Big ole email going out today with all the info you’d ever need about booking sessions at the new studio (pricing/availability/options/link to book a session). I have definitely made it advantageous to anyone who comes to me. Not on the mailing list? Link in profile to make that happen. #fujigx680 #kodakportra400bw #thefindlab
