Your important milestones should be captured with photos and video! If you’re a family who is wanting to commemorate your family’s milestones, then sometimes photos alone aren’t enough to capture the emotion of your ornery boys or the giggles of your new babies. No matter what phase of life your family is currently in, your family will only experience this special time once. Whether your family is growing with one on the way, or your oldest is a graduating high school, we can ensure you that adding video to your family photo session will only enhance the experience. The videos and photos that we create have always been as a means to hold a moment in time–something you can review for years and years to come.
Family photos have always been important, but now family video can capture your truest moments in time as they really are. You’ll be able to see pictures of your children laughing as well as hear the laughter through amazing videos. The money you invest will provide memories for you and your families for years to come. Loved ones will grow up, your children will move out, and times will change. Most importantly, the memories of your lifetime will be preserved by the videos and images taken on your special day.
When people watch old family videos why do they do it? In most cases, they’re watching those videos to remember a time that was. Think about those old videos that maybe your mom or dad filmed of you opening Christmas gifts as a kid. Or how about those videos that you have stored away on your phone of your own family doing something super cute or funny.
Videos can capture a moment in time! Families grow and change so fast. Videos can capture who you are at a certain point in time. Too often we can forget about our past. We can forget how cute our children were when they were little and before you know it they are off to college or getting married and having children of their own. It is important to document their growth and how our families have changed.
If you are the family who has had photos taken every fall for your holiday card, maybe this is the year to mix it up a little bit. If you book a photo AND video session with us, you will still leave the session with perfect pictures for your seasonal card, but we can also focus on documenting this time in your life through video too. To be honest, most of our families that add video to their session don’t even notice when we’re filming half of the time. They’re just left with an amazing video to commemorate this day with.
Some of our previous photo and video clients have said:
“LVP Studios is amazing! Danyell was so sweet and patient. She was great with my kids and made our session a lot of fun. Our pictures are great, and the video is amazing. It is so awesome to have a video memory of our session!”
— Rebecca Dagenais, LVP 2019 Family
“Not only did we get a copy of all the pictures, but they also put in countless hours into making a video of each session which is honestly my favorite part. They take their time to get to know you on a personal level, and to me that makes the session go smooth. My family can not thank Danyell and her husband enough for taking the time to capture these precious moments for us!”
— Nichole Collins, LVP 2019 Family
I mentioned this topic in my “5 Reasons to get Family Photos Every Year” blog post, but it’s just too important not to mention again. A sweet photographer friend of mine posted about a session that she did with a family whose husband passed away shortly after. Her story of their love, their family, and his passing brought tears to my eyes as I scrolled through the image gallery online and thought about all of the important people in my life who had gone too soon as well.
Sometimes you never know what’s going to happen in life. You never know when your family dynamic may change. So, it’s important to document the moments while you can. In my previous blog post I mentioned above, I talked about how this meant you should get these family photos every year—but now imagine if you also booked a session with video too! Imagine the feelings you would be able to capture and the moments you would get to watch back again if someone in your life was no longer there anymore. Video can help lift up the joys you have in every moment you can. And never take for granted the family that you have because you never know when the last chance to record your family may be.
The Parson Family once invited us to their place just to take part in a normal Sunday afternoon. Never have we experienced a more warm and open family as their’s. They invited us to dinner and showed us the joys of coming together as a family. We had so much fun playing with the boys outside, prepping for their family tradition of Sunday dinner, and feeding the fish at the pond. We love that no matter what, when all the dust settles at the end of the day or the end of the week, the things that matted to them were faith, family, and friends.
And we got to document this normal day with photos and videos that the family will cheerish for a lifetime. It didn’t take much planning, it actually didn’t change their weekly plans one bit, but it gave us the opportunity to capture these traditional moments with video.
There are many amazing Family Videos that we have put together for our clients. We love taking part in documenting special moments for families as they continue to grow and change. No matter if your event is something big and life changing, or something as simple as making cookies, we want to be there to film and photograph the day.
