A life in print

I’ve been in full school mode, and trying to focus on my portfolio. These past few weeks have been some of the most frustrating and rewarding in my life. Working towards a goal feels really good, but approaching that light at the end of the tunnel sure is a scary thing.

Some days I’ve been keeping my outfits simple, especially since we are going back and forth from sunny and foggy days. I felt the most comfortable reverting back to my my favorite tomboy look again.

I got the chance to flip through some old family photos, and realized that I’d have very few pictures to share in the same way. I’m the kind of person who loves seeing old family Polaroid pictures, I want to be able to share my pictures with my future children and their children. So I jumped the gun on getting those Prinstagram photos I’ve been wanting for a while. It’s not necessarily cheap, my 2×2 pictures were $12 for 48 pictures. But I bought two sets, waited patiently for them to come, took a pen to their backs and wrote the year and context of the photos. I leave them on my desk every day and they make me so much happier than browsing them on my Instagram feed. I can’t wait to print more in the future- their website has larger prints that look awesome, but also some other interesting products that would be very cool at home like the poster, book, and stickers!
