Family films have been close to my heart since I first started out in film 3 years ago. The first full film I did was of my brother’s family while they were up visiting during the summer. They spend a good amount of time here in the summer and I wanted to send them home with a film that captured all their special places and activities. That film is still something my younger son, Jace watches weekly. It truly is a keepsake. You can visit their film HERE
Let me tell you a little bit about what I look for when planning a family film. My main goal is to show the love that you have for each other….whatever that looks like. It could be soft and sweet with tender moments, cuddles and kisses. It could be high energy with tickle fights and living room dance parties. Or it can be a mixture of both. I like to spend some time talking to my clients about what those love moments look like to them.
Trisha Hyde is a photographer who wanted some family moments in her photography promo film. She talked to me about the things that were special to her and I also captured some little details that as a mother, I always want to remember. We didn’t set out to do a separate film of her family, but there was too much cuteness to fit it all in to her promo film.
Have a look:
I’m working on getting a few more family films in my gallery so continue to check back after the holidays!!
