Life is like photography, you develop from the negatives

Photography by Sean Young

Met up with my friend at a coffee shop for a photoshoot with his Leica M4 from the 1960s. There’s that original raw texture in film pictures that just isn’t quite the same when recreated with filters. The process is more meticulous.. he had to manually meter the light and focus. The results turned out wonderfully charming, and none of these photos have been altered by Photoshop.

    Lovely comfy look but to be honest, the one thing that attracted my eyes was your rock sized ring 🙂

    YESSTYLE! I love it.
    the pictures have a pretty feel to them. i could almost feel the slight "rainy northwest"-ness to them!

    I love that raw grittiness! It's one of the reasons I still use disposable cameras from time to time. Love this look- comfy and chic.

    These are absolutely stunning photos. If only I were half as photogenic as you 😉

    Also, that sweater paired with the skirt is perfect, the juxtaposition is awesome.

    Hope you're having a great week! xo

    Love the sweater! It has such a great amount of slouch to it. Collar bones definitely are one of the sexiest parts on a woman.

    Is that an engagement ring? It's so elegant and pretty. I have to start using the same camera as you – it does have that vintage effect.
