Documentary Family Filmmaking – Obsessed with Layup

The hardest part of filmmaking is finding the songs.  When I am in the zone making films I listen to a lot of songs on repeat.  I have a few music memberships, but the majority of my films are scored by songs licensed from Musicbed.  I also go through phases where I get OBSESSED with an artist and start using all their songs.  My current obsession is Layup.  I have made 2 films in the last week with their work: Favorite Place to Go and Side by Side.  I wrote up another post last year with a few of my other favorite artists for family films.

A recent client wrote the following after receiving her film.  If you want to see my magic in action, let’s start planning your family session with photo + video.

“Colie offers something that not a lot of people do, which is photography AND videography at the same time. I honestly don’t know how she juggles both but the end result is absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait to show my daughters the photos and videos when they’re older! I cry every time I watch the video of my oldest daughter meeting her sister. If you want your family documented, Colie is the person for the job!”



Not everyone wants their everyday, guaranteed-to-make-you-cry-happy-tears moments documented. But if you treasure those memories, let's chat. I'll bet you love it so much you'll come back for seconds.

photos + video = awesome
