I met Kim Tsui at the San Francisco FIND workshop last summer. Her big smile was only outweighed by her big camera — a Pentax 67ii. I am in absolute love with this session Kim sent in:
This is a session that I initiated. I have been wanting, for quite awhile, to do an all film family session. But I was hesitant to do it with clients because I shoot with a Pentax 67ii, and not only is it manual focus, I only get 10 images per roll of 120 film. That’s a lot of film reloading for an entire session.
So I approached this beautiful mama (her daughter is a school mate of my children), and asked if I could photograph her family. She readily agreed. Not only is their family amazingly gorgeous, the are some of the nicest, kindest people, too. I shot only 6 rolls that day, and of the 60 images, I loved about 52 of them. This is easily one of my favorite sessions to date.
