Life in Motion: September

For my September 'Life in Motion' video blog circle post, I'm sharing a personal film that I created. As summer officially came to a close last Thursday, I am so happy that I took some time for video clips during our family's summer camping adventure and was able to put them together this month to create a keepsake for my family.

Thanks for stopping by! After watching, please hop over to Melissa's blog and follow the circle to check out lots of great films and fusion videos by fellow filmmakers!

And if you are interested in booking your own family film to preserve sweet and simple moments in your daily life, please reach out to me and let's make it happen!

Life in Motion: August

Being a birth photographer is so much more than showing up to whip out my camera and photograph a baby being born. It is an intense and rich experience; one that imprints on me every time I share that sacred space with a laboring mother and her eager-to-support partner, and each time I witness a baby opening its eyes for the very first time.

For my first 'Life in Motion' video blog circle post, I'm sharing a fusion video that I created this month. It is a chronicle of a birth journey that spanned into three days and is a testament to the power and strength of a birthing mother and the dedication of her support team.
