Why Family Films Matter To Me | Marietta Family Photographer

At the beginning of this year, I decided to set a goal for myself to learn how to make family films. Because why not add another thing to my never-ending to-do list? ;) 

As our son was growing older, I began to see how quickly his speech and movements were changing (that’s the physical therapist in me) and I wanted to slow it all down. Once I started taking footage, my mama heart was moved in a way that a still photo simply couldn’t do

As parents, I think we feel the constant struggle of wanting to see our kids gain independence and simultaneously we want to freeze time exactly where it is. While writing this, I’ve been reviewing all of the films I’ve made this year and can’t believe how different he is in just 6 short months. Yes there have been some tears.

Apple picking is an annual tradition for us and this is the film I made a few weeks ago. I can’t wait to compare this to next year and cry over all of the changes! :) 

Family photography is still my first passion and I believe our family’s memories are the most valuable things for us to capture. I did plenty of newborn photography when our son was born but don’t have any films of him like the one I recently did for this sweet girl.
