♥ Wishing you a very merry holiday season! ♥
The Film Issue of Lemonade & Lenses magazine went live today, and I am so thrilled to share with you that I have an article in it! This issue of the magazine is all about analog film photography, filled with all kinds of tips on getting started with film and beautiful analog images. Working with Lemonade & Lenses (and seeing my words and images published in a magazine!) was such an exciting experience! I cannot thank L&L enough.
Here are some snippets of my article, Shooting Film on a Budget, and you can read the full magazine here. Thanks for checking it out! :)
The Polaroid Land Camera plus the Instax Wide make for some seriously fun instant photography. I shot quite a few packs during Lindsey and Jordan's session in Ohio. I love playing with these cameras during photo shoots and pretty much anywhere else. They are so great for travel and everyday images, too!
Here's a behind the scenes look at the fun, and you can follow all the behind the scenes action over on Instagram (@imkathleenfrank).
This summer has taken me to Ohio, Chicago, up to the White Mountains in New Hampshire, and lots of places in between. Trying to get as much sunshine in as possible before those nasty New England winters come back. ;) Here's an update of all the travels, and be sure to come say hello over on Instagram (@imkathleenfrank)!
Packed along my film cameras on a recent trip to Ohio and got to work with the awesome Lindsey and Jordan. We took a break from the summer heat and had some studio fun with unbelievable window light. Window light and film has got to be just my favorite combo! Here's a quick peek of our time together. More soon!

Winter was unbelievably long in New England this year. (Isn't it always!?!) We got our fill of snow piles, frigid temps, iced roads, and all that other winter goodness. So when the snow finally lifted and some warm air settled in, nothing felt better than to start shooting again.
I went full analog for this shoot! I tend to shoot use both my digital and film cameras during a shoot, but I wanted to play and try something different. I went all in on film for this shoot, using mostly my Mamiya 645 with a little Polaroid Land camera and Fuji Instax thrown in there, too. Eeek, I loved it! Slowed down a bit and tried to really enjoy the process of working with film and those precious 16 shots per roll. Enjoy enjoy :)

Two of my absolute favorite poets are from New England. My former English teacherness comes out when I start talking poetry and literature, so I'll keep it short. But when we moved to New England and I realized both Edna St. Vincent Millay and e.e. cummings grew up nearby, I had a pretty nerdy freak out.
So Ronald and I planned a trip. We traveled up to Camden, Maine to explore the childhood home of Edna St. Vincent Millay. Oh, it was so cool! We found the street where she lived, and Ronald even talked to a man whose grandfather knew Millay. She used to hang out on his porch! We saw landmarks of where she started reading her poetry. We saw the mountains and the waters she wrote so many poems about. I was in poetry heaven.
I documented the trip on film with my Mamiya 645 and some Portra 160. Developed by the folks over at The FINDlab. Now to start planning the e.e. cummings trip! :)
