Someone else asked it too, but I can’t see an answer (maybe I overlooked it) – is this film?

This is a test shoot I’ve had in my mind for a while. I wanted to do sort of an American road trip shoot… my original vision was a little more route 66 and a little less county-road-Minnesota, but ’til I have time to travel, Minnesota will have to do! Rather than talk about the background and thought that went into this shoot, I really want to talk about my fabulous model, Jill. Many of my clients may recognize Jill as my summer intern. See how incredibly beautiful Jill is? Well her personality, drive, creativity, skill, and work ethic totally match. This girl is literally the total package. I was so grateful to have Jill around over the summer and I’m just not the same without her. Jill is finishing up her last semester of college in Wisconsin and I know she is going to go on to do AMAZING things! (And hopefully come by the studio from time to time.) We also happen to be cousins, so it’s not like I’m losing Jill forever- don’t feel too bad for me! I knew Jill and her trooper-of-a-boyfriend, Taylor, had the perfect All-American look for my shoot. Thank you guys so much for bringing my vision to life!

Also, a big, huge thanks to my hometown neighbors, Jon and Peg at Belle Plaine Auto Body for lending us their sweet 70s station wagon!

The entire shoot was shot on medium format film, Fuji Pro 400H.

Amanda - I absolutely LOVE all of these. I am related to such talented, beautiful people!
