Photos by Kim E – San Jose family photographer » San Jose Family photographer

i recently got my film scans back from millers lab (they offer film services now which was an awesome surprise to learn). a variety of expired film, fuji 400h and portra 160/400 and goverexposing all the shots anywhere from 3 to 6 stops which you can’t do with digital. every image is still pretty darn gorgeous and i need to go hunting at more thrift stores as i’m almost out of my expired film. anywhoo, this blog post is mostly a photo dump of the girls since they really make the best test subjects 🙂

one of the things that i loved the most from my adventure getaway to photo field trip in february was taking the pause, composing and shooting film. richard photo lab provided next day scan/prints so it was incredible to take advantage of their service and exhaling when receiving my prints. seeing that i didn’t mess them up too bad and that they were actually gorgeous. since then, i’ve been doing a bit of a hybrid with my sessions, capturing part of the sessions in film and waiting eagerly for my rolls to return. this weekend, i’m going to take the plunge and do an entire family session in film. i’m excited and nervous but this family is incredible for wanting to be my test subjects 🙂

our sweet emilia. one of our greatest adventures has been watching her grow into the girl she is today. a smart, confident, empathetic, funny girl who loves legos, puzzles, crafting, dress up and board games. a girl who loves to have a dance party during the end credits of movies and a girl who constantly tells her little sister, “don’t worry i got you. big sister will always have you.” when asked what she wants to be when she grows up, her answer is always the same…a kid. our sweet emilia. our girl who’s adventure will be incredible.

giant ball that lights up? check? bubbles? check. endless laughs? check. smiles and cuddles? check. these are the perfect ingredients to make an extended family session in los gatos awesome, fun, adventurous and pretty much, the perfect kind of extended family session.

the last time i was honored to photograph their extended family was three years ago when the littles were incredibly little! check out the link, and see how little and ridiculously cute they were (they still are ridiculously cute but i just can’t believe how much they’ve grown)!

as much as i’m in love with their photos, i’m also incredibly in love with this family. they have been incredible supporters and the loudest cheerleaders as i have photographed them since the very beginning of photos by kim e. to watch their entire family grow in love and life is truly a blessing!
