favorite part of my room.

We started taking instax photos together pretty soon after meeting each other and we haven't stopped taking instant photos since. Instant photos are pretty great, but what do you do with the photos after they develop? I'd usually put them in a box for safe keeping or tape them on my wall. But then I bought this giant frame and put all of our photos in it. I'm really happy with it. And I cannot wait to make a frame more photos at the end of each year!

  1. I just got an Instax today - I cannot wait to get started taking photos. What a lovely way to document your relationship! If you don't mind my asking, how easy do you find the Diana to use? I don't have much experience with toy cameras, but I'd like to start. Do you think the Diana would be a good starting point for a lomo novice? Any advice would be much appreciated! I love all your pics. x

    1. To be honest, I purchased both of those Diana cameras around October and I still haven't developed the film yet! But they're small and easy to use so far. I'll let you know what the results are after I develop the film :)

  2. I love the idea!! I have a polaroid camera of my own but the film (600 film) is soo expensive I haven't been able to use it yet. Also, I love your Diana cameras I might get one soon!

    1. You're right. Film for polaroid 600's are really expensive. But they're worth it! I always get 600 film from the Impossible Project or Urban Outfitters (It's around 20 dollars a pack).

  3. This is amazing! I never really thought about instant photos much until I started following your blog. This is a great way to display so many happy memories :) what camera would you recommend to someone thinking about buying an instant?

    1. I'd go with the Fujifilm Instax 7s. It's relatively cheap on Amazon and the film isn't as expensive as Polaroid brand film. You should definitely get one!

  5. That giant frame is so perfect! I have a lot of polaroids and end up keeping them in a box rather than on display, but something like this would be perfect!

  11. Such a great idea! I also like the frames that are all stuck together but are individual frames at the same time, but I don't know if those are very good for instant photos. Probably not.

  15. Allison I love this! What a great idea! I think I'll have to start a collection pretty soon! Do you recommend Instax over Polaroid? xx

    1. I'd recommend Instax cameras over Polaroids. You can find a cheap vintage polaroid camera anywhere, but the film is SO expensive (around 20 dollars for a pack of 8 photos). On the other hand, the fujifilm instax cameras are a littler more expensive but the film is a lot cheaper and more reliable!

  16. This is so cute! Are you standing next to a Big Foot statue in one of those pictures? Where is that at? So cute!

  17. I love your frame Allie! I think doing one every year is awesome. Miss ya! There's a picture of you holding Fox on his dresser and whenever he sees it he says, "Alohee!"

  19. Ah, that picture frame is such a good idea! My boyfriend just bought me a polaroid for Christmas and all I've done is keep them on my desk, haha. Perhaps I should take a page out of your book and frame em' too! :)

  20. Wow!! What a neat idea. I've seen people use these cameras for their guestbooks at weddings. But I love the idea of recording your whole relationship through polaroids!

  25. Very cool, I love toy cameras. I recently purchased a Holga 135. You'll have to tell me how you like the Diana cameras once you develop the film. <3

  26. oh this is SUCH a cute idea! i saw a post before like this too, and i like how they all look bunched up together. and it makes me feel all fuzzy inside when i can look at pictures and back on memories. way better than sticking them in a box!

    ReplyDelete
  27. So beautiful and fun! That is such a great way to use those instax photos! So better then just tucking them away in a box! And such a fun memory of the time with the one you love!

  29. I love your idea. I got a new camera for Christmas that I love. Have Tate tell you about it. It's a digital and Polaroid all in one. The photos are fabulous. Can't wait to share it with you when you come see me....

  30. I'd have to agree, that frame is the best thing I've seen in your room too... although I think that's all I've seen:) When I saw that mint camera I'm pretty sure I turned 3 shades of green! Awesome.

  31. I can see why this is your favorite! I have so many Polaroids and Instax photos, I should do this!

  32. I LOVE this! My walls are sooo empty right now, I really need to decorate! Just bought some string lights... now for some pictures...

  33. Instant photos are the best :) I was so sad to see Polaroid become no more, but a friend of mine got an Instax for Christmas and after a long while deliberating it's on my 'definitely must buy' list now! Lovely, lovely photographs. And lovely way to display them too! x

  37. That is such a great frame to display your photos. Love photo displays of the ones you love and the memories you've made; Instax is the perfect way to do that. Your mint colored Diana is ADORABLE.
