Ok good. Now,
Remember how I said that I was going to turn this blog into my personal family blog?
Remember how I said I would post little gems from my life here for your enjoyment?
Remember how I always keep my promises?
Ok. Well then,
Remember when you were a kid?
Back in the good ol' days.
Remember how you would threaten your parents that you were going to run away?
Well that's what Matias did the other night.
He packed up all his valuables in his bandana, tied it on the end of a wooden stick and called out from the front door multiple times,
"Mom, I'm leaving now!"
I just had to take a picture of him before he hit the open road.
In case you were wondering what we're up to this month.
Ever since seeing this
photo, I have wanted to recreate it with my own family.
I loved the idea of dressing up in tuxedos and gowns.
Fancy, upscale, and glamourous. We can all dream right?
With a big dose of Saenz style, I knew we would have the makings for something really special.
I have been obsessed with Ophelia for years and years.
I have dreamed of doing a conceptual Ophelia photo shoot for as long as I can remember and I finally decided to try my hand at it a couple weeks ago.
I used a variety of polaroid cameras and different types of film to capture something I intended to be artistic and unique.
Polaroid film inherently has those qualities which is why I chose to photograph in that style.
I will say upfront that I did not get exactly what I had envisioned but I really enjoyed the exploration of the idea
and now have a better idea of what I want to do the next time around.
After fantasizing about this shoot for so long, I knew there was no way I was going to be satisfied with my first attempt but I fully intend on revisiting this concept again, in the near future.
There are so many directions I could take this...
For this particular session, we experimented with milk.
I used a variety of Impossible Polaroid Films including:
PX 680 Color Shade First Flush
PX 70 Color Shade
PX 600 Silver Shade
Priscilla soaked in a milky tub all morning for me.
Dont worry, there are more.
Yes, I will share them very soon.
PX 680 Color Shade.
