Our Little Cabin on the Lake

Coeur d’Alene will always hold a special place in my heart.  I have so many fond memories growing up in this amazing, little-known area of the United States.  I’m so thrilled we can share this place with our kids and make our own new memories.  We get to come here 2-3 times a year and it has become a tradition.  I think each year is getting more fun with them.  They are at the perfect age to spend many lazy summer days swimming, exploring, sleeping under the stars and soaking up any fun activity that summer brings.

I left the digital camera at home.  For the first time.  I was nervous but excited to continue my renewed friendship with finicky, lovely film.  I shot 10 rolls of 35mm and 120 using Kodak Gold 200, Ektar, Portra 160, Portra 400, Portra 800, and Fuji 400h.  Many shots were in mid-day full sun and film is such a rock star with that!  I also shot during a few sunsets and evenings, mornings, and during one epic storm.  I love how they turned out.  I still think Portra 400 is my favorite!





Kim, this post is chock full of film goodness!! I happen to love the Fuji 400 120s, but the converted portra 800 to Black and white is just stunning.

Thank you, Jen!!

these are all so beautiful, love each different series. Kodak gold has nothing to envy to the traditional beautiful portra and fuji 400h!
Summer just looks amazing on film, because you can shoot mid day and get the lovely hot sunny feeling, with all the bright colors. but even your rainy day shots and evening shots are so beautiful.
I have to keep going back to look because there are sooooo many amazing photographs in one blog post!

I love seeing all the different film stocks in one place. Gorgeous photos!
