Family Films: A Lifestyle Newborn Session For Baby Harrison

Family Films are something that I've thought about for awhile now, but at first I didn't quite have the motivation to really sit down and figure it out.  It's been a busy year to say the least.  

A little while back I was basically trapped in my house for a week and half while year end house warranty work was done and I decided to make this videography thing a priority.  I spent that time educating myself on all the details that go into family films and figuring out how to get the settings down in my camera and switch back and forth between video and photos.  I bought a few new pieces of equipment and decided there was no going back.  I'm obsessed with the way the idea of family films inspires me.  

I think what draws me to it most is that my clients really have to be authentic for this to work.  It's actually more interesting if we allow the real to shine through.  We  pick real things to do instead of just finding a spot where everyone can be together.  It's less directed than my typical photo session and I like that.  This is me capturing a piece of your everyday as it really happens.  Yeah sure with this newborn session I was directing a few things, but I allowed the moments to unfold naturally.  

Here is the video paired with some of the images from the photo gallery.  I'm obsessed.  I want everyone to have one of these family films.

Motherhood Sessions

Tell the truth mom, where are you usually when pics are getting taken on a day to day basis?  Are you the one taking them?

Not always, but it seems most often moms have taken on the role of family historian in families these days, which means mom ain't in the picture.  I personally have tons of pictures and videos of my husband with the kids, but anything with me in it is a selfie and most likely Corbin is sticking his tongue out because apparently that's what you do when you're two and taking a selfie or you get the fingers in the nose like this picture here.

My solution, motherhood photo sessions.  

I mean, what mom doesn't want beautiful photos of herself with her children?  I've recently added motherhood sessions to the menu of photogaphy services I offer and they're a little shorter than a typical session, which means they're also more affordable.  

"I'm so upset I have these pictures of myself with my children" - NO MOM EVER

I'm pretty sure this sweet photographer momma has zero regrets about treating herself to the gift of beautiful photos of her and her children.
