I love this project more each month. March was full of birthdays, baseball and crazy weather extremes. We made lots of great memories - see what we have been up to.
As many of you know I have recently finished my first film class. I am super excited about the ways it is going to expand my storytelling for clients..... and myself. I have been practicing relentlessly and spending loads of time checking out the films of more experienced storytellers.
One of my favorite short film artists that shoots with her DSLR (aka fancy camera) like me is Francesca Russell from New York. While she is light years ahead of me - she has been doing this for a while, I love that she practices on her own littles ...... just like me. Her website is full of fun photos and videos of her own kids. Let's be honest, they are right there begging us to practice on them :)
She did a video of her own children that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it. It had a dreamy whimsical magic about it that drew me in. I knew immediately I wanted to create a similar video for my own children.
After finishing my class it was one of the first things on my list to create as a gift to myself. So off to the store I went for a bubble machine - which was a necessity for this Moments in Motion story. Now I want to share it with you.
It seems as each new season approaches I am ready for it, tired of the last..... I'm waiting for it.... excited about it! (except winter - I really don't like winter) Around the beginning of September every year, as football starts and the pools all close, I am ready for boots, leggings and my big sweaters. Bring on the Pumpkin Spice Latte.
There is nothing like crisp days, golden light and the excitement fall always brings with it. It is a magical and romantic time. There are so many fun traditions that fall brings: trips to local farms to pick apples, pumpkins and mums; Halloween costumes, pumpkin carving, playing in giant piles of leaves and marshmallows by the fire pit, red wine on the back porch wrapped in a blanket... see why I just love fall?
