We’re back! And we’re only mildly sunburned!
This Spring Break was probably my favorite family vacation yet. As the kids get older and our jobs get busier, I know we don’t always do a great job of spending “quality time” together, and this trip was a chance for us to spend time just being together. This time around I made myself the goal to try and capture more video of our family together. While I will always love still photographs, my background is actually in video production, and I love seeing moving images of our kids at different ages and stages. While I enjoy making these sorts of videos for clients, I haven’t been making them for our family lately, and I missed it!
The whole reason I got into this business in the first place was to document my own family’s lives, and while client work is amazing, this is the kind of stuff that gives me goosebumps and that we all crowd around watching in bed, laughing at our silly moments and remembering our adventures. There was a time not so long ago when my life certainly didn’t feel this joyful, and I feel like it’s my duty to capture these memories because it shows me that no matter how hard things are, life can and does get better. It takes time, patience, and lots of gummy bears, but it’s true. I hope many more of these Travel Diaries are in our future.
