Making moments of today last for a lifetime - a new kind of family portrait that captures your family and the magic of childhood, just as it is now.
"Who are we but the stories we tell ourselves, about ourselves, and believe?"
- Scott Turow
Memories and stories matter. The stories we tell, of who we are, of who our mothers and fathers, our siblings and our grandparents are, those are the stories that shape us.
My desire with family films is to tell the stories that your children will tell themselves - I am loved, I belong, I am blessed.
This is the magic of childhood, captured. However your family looks, I want to preserve precious snippets of your everyday life as a gift to you and your children.
My 5 favourite things about family films
- Your children get to see and remember you, your touch and affection
- They make the greatest gift for grandparents
- They freeze a moment in time forever, whether you were renovating, in a rental, or living on little to no sleep
- They are short enough to steal away a few minutes and re-watch over the months and years
- Your children get to see their space, their favourite toys, and how they spent so many of their days at home
our day together
How inviting me into your home will change the way you view family portraits forever.
As a film maker and photographer, I love spending time with people. I like to get to know them and learn about what makes them tick.
While filming with families, I’m often told that I disappear into the background, getting lost in the muddle of naps, toys, meals and playtime. This perfectly sums up how I prefer to work; getting to know you and your family is how I capture the perfect moments that make up your finished film.
Your family will lead our time together. If you want to stay in bed for the extra hour and play - perfect. If you want to bake a cake together - beautiful. I will disappear into the background. Your children will forget I’m even there, and you might too!
We will film at your house: whether it’s halfway through renovations or perfectly kept. You will spend the morning loving your children, enjoying them and being totally present with them. You won’t be asked to pose or give a cheesy grin to the camera; that’s just not my style.
And the result? You’ll receive a beautifully intimate short film, complete with licensed music and snippets of recorded audio that tells the story of your family as it is today. The messy and precious moments that make up your life together.
