Children on Film

Here is my latest "Children on Film" video. This is the Maresch family; some of my favorite folks in the world. We took an afternoon and let the kiddos and their parents tromp around their land. There's something so neat about watching such a great family- they are comfortable, they love each other, and they have fun together. Doesn't get much better.

These "KidVideos", as I like to call them, are something I developed years ago as a way to document families in an authentic, natural, and exciting form. No perfectly pressed jumpers, hair wetted down by spit, squirming in an uncomfortable stool, squeaky toys to catch their eye...this is your kids being their amazing little selves. Their sweet little voices, their laughter, the way they dance and run and jump.

Mary and Ryan are giving these out as Christmas gifts this year- which I think is an idea worth stealing. Get in touch with us if you'd like to find out more about having one of these keepsakes made for your family. Plus, it will tide Brent and me over until we decide to have little ones of our own!

Pin It Now!

I love our video! I keep watching it over and over again, it's a keepsake that touches me more than anything. Your sensitivity to detail is remarkable and you weave it into a story gracefully! Thank you so much for what you do we are privileged recipients of it!

Thank you so much Mary- such kind words! Of course I feel priviledged to be able to make these for you all. Your family gives me tons of joy.
