This is my favorite newborn film I've made yet! I made the whole film black & white as part of a monthly video challenge that I'm part of and I LOVE IT. I love the classic look it gives the film. I love how all of the details seem to stand out even more in black & white.
And of course it was a joy to get to see this family of three again. In just 24 hours little Garnet had already changed! It's so crazy how fast that happens! This film was a surprise for them, as they were willing to let me video their 24 hour postpartum visit to use in an informational video I was working on, but I'm so thankful I got to capture these moments for them! Those newborn days are so sweet and so fleeting, but now they have a film to help them remember it all!
My daughter turned 8 last month and to celebrate her birthday we made a little video of her reading and "starring in" one of her favorite books. I hope you have as much fun watching it as we did making it!
Oh, my kids so love having a bonfire out at Nana's house. Even better when the cousins all get together and roast hot dogs (I say YUCK!) and marshmallows. This time we made home made marshmallows and OH. MY. WORD. they were DELICIOUS. It's true--everything is better when it's made from scratch. If you like marshmallows you must try to make them!!
I'm so glad I had the chance to video our last bonfire and capture these memories for my kiddos. They love watching themselves! They could sit around for hours watching these videos of their daily lives because it's also true--the simple times are the best times.
My kids LOVE getting to spend time with their cousins. It seems they never get enough time with them! One of our holiday traditions is the cousin football game after Thanksgiving dinner. While the adults clean up, the kids get dirty!
It's always exciting to add a new member of the family, but I am especially excited for this family! With 2 little boys to grow up together, there is sure to be lots of fun, laughter, and shenanigans! It was such an honor to get to be with this couple as they welcomed each boy into their lives, but to get to spend some time with them and capture them being a family together--that was pure joy!!
This sweet girl was sure in a hurry to get here! We came right when she called and well still almost missed it. I'd say we've got another strong and determined little girl in our midst! :) It would be more than fair to say that she gets it from her mom. This lady acted like a pro at this labor thing, fast and furious though it was. It was amazing to witness such a peaceful labor!
There's something about getting to be with your best friend when she delivers her baby--I'm not sure I've been more excited about a birth since I had my own babies! The lady was with me, supporting me with my babies and I'm so glad I was able to be there with her while she labored to bring her little one earthside. Labor is hard work, but when we are surrounded by those who love us, encourage us, and support us, it makes the work less overwhelming. This is a birth story that I will treasure always because this family means so much to me, so I hope you enjoy watching this incredible woman on the day she welcomed her little man into their family!
