I’m what you would call a late bloomer when it comes to photography. It all started with my first trip to Europe…Paris of all places. Needless to say, I fell in love.

 

My other loves…my hubby, extra pickles on meatball subs, Italy, skeeball, the color purple, my pup and my kitty, sangria, Law & Order re-runs, peppermint patty ice cream from Peaceful Meadows, candlepin bowling, and anything involving Ryan Gosling.

 

My fascination with polaroid photography began in 2010 when I purchased my first Polaroid SX-70 camera. Then my mother found my grandfather's old Polaroid Sun600 tucked away in a closet and gave it to me. It warms my heart every time I use it.

 

I believe there is something magical about that little square photo and the feel of holding it in your hands. I love the softness and uniqueness of the Polaroid image and the unpredictability of working with Impossible films.
