I recently posted about traveling to St. Louis to photograph another photographer’s family, but I also had the unbelievable opportunity to photograph Crystal Phillips of Crystal Phillips Photography and her family, too, while going through Illinois. I arrived JUST as an ice storm was getting pretty nasty…but it was totally, totally worth it (see the end of the blog!).
Crystal is simply one-of-a-kind; she’s one of the most genuine people you will ever meet, and she is someone that is considered a great friend by *so* many. Meeting her was everything I expected and more.Her adorable family was so welcoming, and we had such a blast.
all photos shot with portra400 and portra800 film, developed and scanned by FIND Lab
Piper and I instantly became best buds.
I walked into Liam’s room, and he was waiting for me just like he is in the photo below, left. Its one of my favorites of the session. 🙂
I am quite obsessed with this photo below. If film is accidentally exposed to light before developing “light leaks” occur, and they can often ruin images. I opened my camera back slightly, but instead of the frame being ruined, this ended up being so beautiful.
HAD to take advantage of that ice storm!
Thank you so much for having me, guys. It was *seriously* such an honor to document your family.
