Better than a clown! (nothing against you clowns)

We've all spent that special day with our little guy or girl, stalking them with a video camera, trying to capture that moment...all that 'right now' before it becomes 'remember when.'  And it's a good thing there's footage, because later you realize the 'right now' was lost on you.  From behind the camera we're invisible, absent.  In an effort to make a memory tangible, the actual recollection is watching the candles being blown out on a  LCD screen.  We miss the full experience so we can watch a version of  it later on the computer.

Well put the camera down and join the party! I'm happy to announce that I'm now offering video/short film editing packages for birthdays, events, whatever!  It's the same price as my "standard shoot" photography package, but it's really quite a deal.  The editing is a little bit more intense than your standard still photos, but man!  it's so much fun. Here's a little video I did for a certain little man turning 3.   It's amazing watching it now, a mere few months later.  I see those same kids and they've already changed, grown. Man, it goes by fast.

Bottle a moment to carry with you. You'll be so happy you did.


  1. Man, your movies always make me tear up. They capture the feeling of the moment so perfectly it pokes at my heart!

  2. No kidding! How do you like being the maker of choked up mamas? And I mean that in the best way possible! Another fine piece... keep it up - there is so much we need to "remember when"... sniff sniff...
