Moving to Chicago: Instax Edition

I moved to Chicago. It’s a thing.

I took pictures of the process. Because I moved to Chicago to study for my Photography MFA. Photography. That’s me. Photos. Yes. Very.

Let me tell you, moving to another state is hella weird. But, I’m happy. My new apartment is right next to the el (which is Chicago’s public train system, “el” short for “elevated.) I hear trains go by all day everyday, which is amazing and not annoying, to be honest.

I had my room unpacked in a day. Yes, I have a mountain of galaxy printed pillows. That’s because I like stellar sleep. BOO-YAH.

I took my boyfriend around the city a little bit, since he’s never been to Chicago to explore, so that was lovely.

All of these were taken with a Fuji Instax Wide, because nothing says “moving is fun,” quite like instant film.

Oh, and Jafar is apparently a Disney Princess now.

Happy Shooting!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! In celebration of today, here are some fall/Halloween themed instax photos!

Those cute little kids are my neice, nephews, and their friends.

And my brother makes an excellent giraffe.

Fuji Instax Wide film doesn’t have many patterned frame options, so when I saw the Halloween ones I freaked and ordered them. Halloween is my all-time favorite holiday, so c’mon, gotta indulge a little bit.

It was the first time ever I had trouble with the paralax shift of this camera, for some reason. Probably because I was shooting up close. Whatever, I made a collage.

Happy Halloween and Happy Shooting!
