My Christmas Party | Captured on Film

On Saturday night I hosted a Christmas party with my high school friends. It was so good to catch up with everyone in person as it's been over a year since this group got together. I absolutely love hosting. Getting to create an atmosphere that will make for the most joyous and enjoyable experience for everyone at the event is really satisfying and fun for me.

As most of you know, these days it can be hard to truly connect with people on a human level. I often say that we are turning into robots - constantly relying on our phones, computers and self serve checkouts at the grocery store. It seems like basic human connection is not enough and we need to constantly be connected to the world at the same time, but this night proved me wrong. People still want human connection and friendships. We still want to laugh around the dinner table while taking pictures wearing silly glasses and hats. We want to create genuine memories and have honest conversations about life.  It's a shame that this group doesn't come together more often. I'm going to try to change that next year.

All photos were taken with either the Fujifilm Instax Wide 300, or the Lomo'Instant Wide. The Lomo'Instant Wide was perfect for this event thanks to the remote/self timer. ♥
