Ida's Red Dress | Seattle Family Photographer

Film Photography, Seattle by Sandra Coan

I've been photographing Ida since the day she was born.  

I love this little girl, and always look forward to getting her in front of my camera.

Her mom is my dear friend Lily, and Lily always has Ida dressed to the nines!

For her second year portraits, Ida wore a stunning red vintage dress.  The photos we got from this session are some of my favorites, which made it all the more fun when Ida and her stunning red dress were featured in the March/April edition of  Click Magazine!

The good people at Click asked me to talk a bit about my approach to shooting film with strobes, and I was more that happy to share.

To me, film and strobes are the perfect marriage.  Film love lights.  The more the better.  And with strobes you can create perfect light every single day, no need to rely on the weather.  

Teaching other film photographers about how to use strobes has become my passion.  I teach both an online and an in person workshop about it, and now I get to share this amazing and beautiful technique with the readers of Click.  What an honor!
