hero's 1 year video

of course, with so much professional, nice camera gear around our house, our own child's life gets filmed almost entirely with iPhone cameras.

better than nothing :)

new family films, a birth story, and a wedding

chas and i have been burning the midnight...1am...2am...and sometimes 3am oil lately. we've been so fortunate this summer to get to work with some amazing families and couples on films. we have plans to eventually expand our little home business operation and get a second computer so we can both work long hours editing into the night together. romantic, i know. ;)

enjoy some of our recent films!

family photos!

a few months ago, we had our first family photos taken by the talented tim sondrup.

hero had just barely learned to walk and i wanted to be sure to capture this special time when she's right between baby and toddler. also, my hair was in a really good stage color and cut-wise so that was an important factor in timing as well ;)

it seemed like the photo shoot, we were all doing everything we could do get hero to hold still for 2 seconds and smile. but all she wanted to do was get down, walk around,...and eat all the little rocks. can't blame her- those rocks were awesome. i was so worried that the whole shoot had been a total bust but was pleasantly surprised when i saw the photos! even if hero isn't smiling in lots of them, i still think we got some pretty decent shots for trying to wrangle a 1 year old and look like we weren't super stressed about it all, haha.

here are just a few of my favorites!
