Hi, I'm Gracie

It started as an effort to slow down. I had shot on digital formats for years and was becoming too much "perfectionist" and not enough "enjoyer".

Hardly knowing what film was, I traded all my gear in and took my new foreign cameras on the road. Through blank rolls, jammed shutters, and mishaps in exposing, I found a new love for creating through mediums that could stand the test of time and fads.

4 years later, the mediums have not changed, but my muses have grown. Me, my husband, and our 8 month old boy, Bear, live nestled in a small farming community west of Houston, Texas. It's in the slowness of south texas living that my husband and I document our simple life on film.

I want my own families legacy to live on in the negatives of spent film rolls, so I understand why you want that too.
