Hello, Holga.

Thanks to the lovely Diana, and this website I studied all weekend, I was finally able to try out my Holga. It was a Christmas gift from Jordan, and yes it was on my "list". So, being the perfect husband, he bought exactly what I said I wanted. But of course, I don't know anything about cameras and I told him to get 35mm film. Duh, it takes 120 film. Didn't I feel like an idiot? It's okay now though, because we found an amazing camera store in Sacramento that not only sells 120 film, but also develops it. I spent Saturday walking through the Fair Oaks Village, running after roosters that really didn't want their picture taken. Jordan and I probably looked like crazies running circles around the roosters, shouting "Stand still you idiots, just lemme take your picture!!!"

What I Wore?
Dress- Vintage (Crimson & Clover)
Leggings- Target
Flats- Soda

Jordan is taking the film in today. I can't wait to share with you the results. That is, unless they don't turn out.


  1. You're so pretty its not fair.
    I can't wait to see how the film turns out!

  2. I really hope a couple come out! It's hit or miss but the ones that do come out are worth it!

  3. Ah, so jealous! Can't wait to see how they turn out ;)

  4. awesome I love holga's. not sure where you went in sac but i know of Ace photo imaging on fulton ave and then theres always the lovely and greatest Pardees Cameras on El Camino ave

    love your bloggie blog :)

  5. you have an holga...that's awesome. I want one but want to "find" one, not just buy it online. I think it has extra magic that way :) Can't wait to see your pictures!

  6. Adorable outfit! So jealous. ;)

  7. you little cutie! can't wait to see your photos!

  8. Liz- Look who's talking!

    Diana- I'm just hoping for one good one! I'm going to be embarassed if they are all black :/

    Ashlee- You should get one, I'm sure you would love it.

    Cassidy- I went to Pardees! I love that place.

    Elise- But they are so cheap! Just don't go to Urban haha.

    Emilia- Thank you! I about died when I found this dress :)

    Iris- I think you might be the first person to call me little! I love it hahaha. And I will only show if they are good. I don't really like the whole failure thing.

  9. i don't know if this info would interest you, but there exists a 35mm back for the holga. it's fairly inexpensive, too. i got mine from urban outfitters and it works like a dream. the ultimate benefit of course, is being able to use 35 mm film, which is easily accessible.

  10. omg my husband, then boyfriend, bought me a holga in 2006 for v-day and i have never used it! lol, but you have inspired me!
