I was so excited to try out my new film camera with FIRE HOOPING! Katie Rose is a serious superstar when it comes to all things flow. Oh, and ridiculously brave. I don’t know how she dances with hot flames that close to her body and keeps her cool. Do you see her expressions? Not even a trace of unease. Such a fun shoot, thanks for sharing your evening and art with me Katie!
I highly recommend following her on instagram for some gorgeous hoop flows, whimsical paintings, and all sorts of creative endeavors – @tippytoes_flows

First things first…puppy.
Ok, now on to the hooping spectacular:

This is the very first roll of film I took on my Canon AE1! I haven’t shot film since high school (has it really been more than 10 years!?) and I feel this excitement in my bones for it. This first roll was hard for me, every click of that shutter felt like such a huge deal for someone who is used to shooting thousands of frames a day. My perfectionism definitely got in the way of me shooting anything for a while. I’m slowly getting over that barrier and can’t wait to shoot more and more! Film just feels so special.
Film – Kodak Porta 400
Location – Brooklyn + Sarah’s cabin in upstate NY
(any ideas why this first photo turned out like this? I kind of love it.)

Next stop – Melissa’s wedding! I will practice restraint and shoot one roll. We’ll see how that goes.
