Got my film scans back from Film Box Lab and I’ve been reliving our vacation in Florida. That’s the thing about film, you go back to the space and time when you created the image and try to remember the details – why you picked the location, the way it felt, the film stock you picked, etc. It’s not easy like digital where you can go look up the details easily and instantly. Film is a little more mysterious. It makes you wait. And the wait always seems to be worth it.

Thank you to ProDPI lab for featuring a fun little personal project of mine in their email newsletter this week! prodpi-amy-sandoval-photography

 I wanted a fun way to display images in our bathroom’s water closet that would be informal and easy to change up occasionally. I found some inspiration on Pinterest and created my own version of the idea.

I ordered a collection of mini snapshots from ProDPI of film images I took of our family cottage in the Outer Banks. I then taped them up using Washi tape to complete the informal but collected look. The mini snapshots are a fun and easy way to make sure you’re printing your images – especially Instagram photos. I’m hoping to create another collection like this from my daughter Olivia’s Instagram account later this year.
Here’s the Pinterest project inspiration on the left and my project on the right:

I’m honored to be in such great company.  My Curves Boudoir image won Honorable Mention in the Lemonade and Lenses boudoir cover contest. There’s something really special about being honored by peers and this magazine was created by photographers and for photographers.

Jamie and Ron are favorite wedding clients from a few years ago. Jamie craved fruit during her pregnancy and we met at Cullipher’s Farm Market stand in southern Virginia Beach for their mini session so she could enjoy fruit and ice cream. It was the perfect location as the sky was spitting rain on and off during their photos and we were able to duck inside the stand towards the end when the skies opened up. I love the natural beauty of the fruits and vegetables – all the color – and the excited anticipation in Jamie and Ron’s eyes.

I’m also super proud of my daughter Olivia for capturing some amazing detail shots on my digital camera while I was shooting with my film camera. She shot the gorgeous photo of the Queen Anne’s Lace above, as well as those peaches in the basket. I’m looking forward to having her along with me for more sessions and I know my clients will benefit from her growing talent.
