Oh my heart. And these sweet voices! What a gift to be invited to welcome this sweet soul to this beautiful family. Even better, is having the experience of knowing this family from the VERY START! I filmed Mike and Crystal’s wedding years ago, then sweet Savannah’s first year, as well as John! To say I was THRILLED when Crystal contacted me to make a little film of welcoming Luke to his new family is an understatement. What I wouldn’t give to have something like this of my babies when they were little. With me in it!! There is just something about the movement, and the voices of both the little ones and Mom and Dad that is just priceless. Even the bit of chaos and busyness of the kids is beautiful. This family also got about 15 images from this short little shoot. Thank you Mike and Crystal for having me back!!!!
Well, it is not the holiday season without a Christmas Hat video! My tween and teen kids are becoming less interested in dancing around in public wearing Xmas hats, but we are still managing to maintain this ridiculous family tradition.
Here is hoping we get to see you in 2016 and that you all have the most wonderful holiday with your friends and family! We are excited for a fantastic 2016!
As my kids get older I have the overwhelming regret that I didn’t record more video of them. Yes, this is what I do, but I don’t feel like I captured enough of these little stories before my little ones grew up. There is something about capturing the interaction and little moments between a young family that is just magical, and those voices! Doesn’t get any sweeter. This season we are offering a few spots for special mini-film sessions at a local Christmas tree farm. Take a peek at this adorable film and shoot me an email to reserve your time on November 14! They will go fast!
Here are the details:
30 minute film session at a Christmas tree farm on November 14. We will create a 2-3 minute film of your family as well as give you up to 10 low-res images for you to use for holiday cards (but don’t forget – you are getting something BETTER than a card to share with your friends and family – you are getting a VIDEO to send!) $800.00
I think having a wedding at your own home is the most perfect thing in the world. No matter what really. But when you have a little grove of beautiful trees, and dogs and horses and feathers? Perfection has been perfected. Maggie and Ben had the most magical of days with so many dear family and friends by their sides. What an amazing way to start a new family.

There is something about seeing a family in motion – hearing them interact together and listening to their voices. It is just like stopping time.
These are two very special families and I love every squeal and giggle, even every cry. You might recognize my talented photographer friend Adrienne, we have shot many beautiful weddings together. And of course one of my most favorite brides and grooms and their sweet little man have made many an appearance on my blog over the years. 🙂
