So, the other day my friend and colleague, Claire Reid of Claire Reid Photography, sent me this video – a vignette if you will – of all the family sessions we’ve had with her over the last few years.
I had to get out the Kleenex.
And so did my husband Mike.
Besides our family photo sessions, Claire also does all the photography for Snugabell and PumpEase. Headshots too. She is amazingly talented. When I tell her my vision for a shoot, she is always excited and always bubbling over with harmonious ideas to help bring my vision to life. And when we’re in studio, the energy is palpable; we really just connect. (And if you were standing outside the door, you would hear lots of oohs and aaahs and excited giggles.) She is also exceedingly patient with my ahem… attention to detail.
When she is shooting us as a family – something we have done with Claire every year since Michaela, my youngest, was 18 months old or so – she can get the most amazing shots out of the girls. Even an hour into it when they are getting cranky/tired/bored/cold.
Claire is now offering these unique keepsake videos to her customers. These video journals offer a unique way to immortalize a special time in your life, capturing your style and story as only Claire can….
My only regret is that I hadn’t met Claire yet when the girls were teeny tiny. 🙁 I have pictures, but they are of the generic department store type quality. Not awful, but not great either.
If you’re in the lower mainland of British Columbia, look Claire up. You won’t regret it. She is blogging now too and doing a bang-up job!
If you’re out of town, do you have a favourite photographer that you keep returning to, to capture for all posterity the growth of your family? Go dig out all those photos and look at how much they’ve grown. Remember the Kleenex. And please share below.
