Can I just say, this is one of my most favorite candid shots of my family?
Shot on film. Developed in the lab as an exposure test. Scanned in.
So the strips in exposure are from trying different levels in the developing lab, to get the right one, under the direction of my Photography 101 professor. (I had just returned to school for the second time to get my two-year graphic design degree) I never developed a final exposure, so all I had was this one. But it’s my favorite. The looks on their faces are precious. The almost-smiles break my heart.
This was Fall 2009, so Lilli was just 6 years old, Kindergarten. So adorable. Her face is just one big piece of cutie pie. Most of the time, I would just ask for a kiss because I couldn’t resist those soft, suede-y cheeks. She looks like a French child from a black and white independent film. Zut alors! Those bangs!
So glad I caught this moment on film. And I kind of like the strips.
This could be an ad for Nikon with the bag in the background! LOL Live free and Nikon!
And Guy! You’re so handsome! Sacre bleu!
