Whitney’s Story

When Whitney first reached out to me about a film she sort of chuckled at the idea of trying to do a session in her full house. She asked me, “Can you do a film with circus music?” We came up with a plan to spotlight each of her kids and then come together as a family for hot chocolate. I know what you’re thinking…kids and hot chocolate = wardrobe disaster. Yep, there were spills because that’s real life. The focus isn’t on the stains it’s on the joy the children felt preparing for Christmas as a family.

Each of the kids chose their own activity. It captured memories of their interests at the time and made it much easier for them to be relaxed in front of the camera. All they had to do was be themselves. 

When I came across this song I new it was the most perfect fit for them (and it isn’t circus music):

“I’m gonna love you for the rest of my life. I’ll never let you go. Give me your hand and we’ll hold on tight through whatever comes and goes.”
