The Polaroid Experience

The tangible is not lost.  We still long for something to touch, to provoke emotion, something to hold onto.  Polaroids evoke a sense of nostalgia.  The familiarity draws you in, the magic is what keeps you intrugued.  In a visual world dominated by screens, it is exciting to watch an image develop in front of you, to hold it in your hands immediately after it is taken.  The instant gratification is both alluring and mysterious.  

Each photograph is a one-of-a-kind piece of art.

I have been experimenting with Polaroid film, using it as a medium to create art, for over 7 years.  I love pushing the limits by trying new and old film types and techniques.  My instant photography work has been published and exhibited worldwide, I would love to share my passion for this medium with you.

My clients have ranged from brides to bands to families and friends. 

The Polaroid Experience can be booked separately or in addition to your wedding or portrait session.

Read an interview where I discuss my journey with instant photography on one of my favorite instant photography blogs,  Snap It See It

My maternity photos shot on instant film created with the help of my amazing assistant/lover/partner, Chris on Impossible Project's blog       

Here is gallery of some of my favorite images.  These were all created using instant film.  Please remember, scans are nice, but nothing compares to seeing the tangible images.
