In 2016, one of our favorite instant films everrrrr was discontinued. Japan announced that they’d no longer make it, so we stocked our entire fridge door up with some of the remaining stock, bought a land camera that could use it, and have been quietly forcing our friends to get their photo taken with it at drunken dinner parties for the last few years.
This film is a freaking TREASURE. So we’re bringing it to Lipstick & Libations to share it with you!
We’ve had such a blast at past L&Ls (previous editions include No Shame in the Tinder Game, the Los Angeles Sessions, and the Home Sessions), but we wanted to add a little something more to this one. We want to give you something you can take home right away besides the normal solid buzz and bold lip: a framed print of you on Fujifilm that isn’t produced anymore.
You’ll be one of the last people to ever have your photo taken on this film stock. SEXY.
You’ll still get a bunch of digitals, too, but going home with a framed piece of film that is literally one of a kind, never to be produced again is some kind of magic.
Per usual, you’ll get a drink in your hand asap. Custom cocktails, made to order. Place your order on the signup slot below and we’ll be shaking your drank when you arrive.
Next, get yo’ face done— this time, by the pro makeup artist of our collective dreams Gaylinyet. Have you ever seen her flawless skin in real life? It’s almost like she isn’t a real person. I digress— but if you’re like me, G doing your makeup is the flyest you will ever feel.
Then the magic happens: step into our lair (ie the studio)! We’re keeping this one real clean and classic— all the editorial studio vibes, none of the Yuen Lui chin-shelf and teased hair. While we love natural light, we wanted to create shots that are a little more “Annie Leibovitz Vanity Fair cover” than “senior session in the cherry blossoms.” And don’t worry if you don’t know how to pose. That’s literally what we are here for.
You’ll go home with a framed, one-of-a-kind print on discontinued Fujifilm. A week or two later, 20 digital files will land in your inbox. Best of both worlds. Badda bing.
Oh, and when you’re done at the studio, you should take yourself somewhere nice. A champagne buzz and cheekbones this sharp need to hit the town.
Every single edition of L&L Seattle has sold out, so make sure you reserve a spot like, now, beb. We’re trynna get you tipsy and get you some photos like you’ve never had before and never will again. Can’t wait to spoil you.
