You deserve to be IN the family photos, Periodt.
This generation of kids are no strangers to being in front of the camera. iPhones and other mobile phone cameras are in the hands of almost every parent, so pictures might be an everyday occurrence in your household. You may even have an insane amount of selfies with your family in the frame. But, don’t you want pictures without the limitation of how far your arm can stretch? Trust me, you do.
Which best describes you?
Either way, you are in the right place!
I am having a baby
My job is just to make sure there are photographs (and video) for your children and future grandchildren to experience how it was too. Let me not lie, it is also so that when they are raging teenagers full of hormones and attitude you have a few family films and albums to remember when they were so little and cute. Everybody needs this.
I want some real family photos
An ordinary day has so many little moments worth remembering. The way your littlest clings to your leg, carries a baby doll in each hand or lays their head on your chest, won't last forever. Checking under the bed for monsters will soon be a thing of the past, so let's document these moments before they are gone.
This is why you hire me
I don't mean to brag, ...ehhh that's a lie I will TOTALLY brag. If people cry while watching my films of complete strangers, just imagine what it would be like to watch your own family? I bring your family memories to life and seeing + hearing their giggles or the moment your children meet for the first time is always worthy of #happytears. See for yourself!
What to Expect
Fill out your questionnaire and pick something comfortable to wear.
I need to know nicknames, how to make your kids laugh, and no one wants to be in something uncomfortable with a camera in their face for a few hours.
You be you and I will take care of the rest.
Your kids will think cameras mean fun and your partner will be happy to join in too. Don't worry about getting anyone to cooperate, you hired an expert.
This is when I make you cry.
I would apologize, but it's literally my job. They will be tears of joy, but nonetheless you will need tissues when you view your video for the first time.
I made her cry ugly tears
"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!"
It doesn't have to be awkward, but you should know you can't pay me in tacos or coffee no matter how much I love them. I don't want to waste your time or mine so please use this as the measuring stick.
