Adventures in Instantland Continue...

For some of my long time blog followers you may remember when I lost myself over the excitement of the arrival of my new favorite photography tool/toy in a post entitled "Adventures in Instantland" back in July of 2010 (you can reminisce and/or check it out by clicking here). I posted a pic of my new fangled Fujifilm Instax Mini 7 Instant Camera and a few of my first attempts at capturing beauty on instant film. I was smitten. And my instant camera and I have had many adventures since then. We have captured and left behind many-a-tiny-memories all the way from Mexico to Peru with kids and parents alike (I am sure you have seen these little gems on my blog). And in a "Summer of Seeing" Project just out of grad school we traipsed around cities in NC to FL capturing light infused curiosities all along the way.

Summer of Seeing / Instant Camera Project

You can check out the full project on Flickr by clicking here. All of this adds up to why I am delighted to see this newly released book "Instant Love" out there in the world today. And I am equally as excited to see this glorious little trailer for the book, created by one of my favorite creatives (that I now follow on Instagram) Ryan Marshall from

Check it out. And fall in love.

On a side note, I seriously just ordered (today) 10 double packs of instant camera film (that is 200 shots) set to arrive next week for some upcoming projects that are to be included in my June 10th Art Show at Brewsters Coffee Shop in Sebring, FL. Get excited! And you FL folks plan to make it down to the show to check out (and possibly purchase) some one-of-a-kind gloriousness from Instantland.


About Caroline

I decided my destiny was to be an artist at age five when I won an honorable mention in a art competition in kindergarten. Ever since then I have been following a dream that has manifested itself in a variety of rewarding and delightful ways. I have practiced in the field of graphic design for over 8 years and recently acquired my Masters in Graphic Design at NC State University in Raleigh, NC (check out my design portfolio by clicking here if you like). But a passion that has stuck with me ever since I got my hands on my first Nikon camera in my undergraduate art education at Florida State University is photography. The instruction I received there was but a seed in what would develop over the next years of my life. Recently I have begun photographing people in their celebrations of life and could not feel any more blessed to be a part of capturing those memories.

About This Blog

A great american writer once wrote, "If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world, and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan my day." EB White penned the thoughts of my own heart. One part of me is a graphic designer working to challenge the world, seeking out problems and striving to create avenues for change. The other part is seeking out the beauties of the world and working to capture them in our memories forever through photography. This is what you will find here. Me enjoying the world. I have been truly fortunate to photograph such incredible people at truly beautiful moments in life. I can only hope that the images I've collected will forever keep alive those thoughts and emotions that swelled in their hearts and minds that day.
