You guys. I don’t even know where to begin to explain how amazing today’s giveaway is.  It’s something you and your family would cherish for years to come.  Something you’ll want to show everyone you know.  Something that will help you remember exactly what your children were like at a moment in time.

You all know how amazing my partner in crime for video, James Young, is.  James is an exceptional videographer, photographer, and human being.  He owns a production company and shoots/edits corporate videos, news, music videos, lifestyle videography, and family video portraits.  Never heard of that last one?  It’s a new way of capturing your family, exactly how they really are in video, and having those memories in preserved forever.

From someone who has spent a great deal of my daily life working in video, I am so grateful for every single shot of video I have of Ruby.  Photos are so special, but I know time will chip away at how I remember her little laugh, the sound of her almost 2-year-old voice, the way we play and giggle together, even the way she walks.  Video is the only way to hold onto these memories forever, and how precious it will be for her to be able to watch herself back as she grows.  Absolutely priceless.

So, what exactly is a family portrait video?  Here is a beautiful example of one James recently produced of a new family of four: the Waldron’s.


I know, RIGHT?  And my friends, James is giving one of these videos away to a Utah local!  The giveaway includes a one-hour video session, and a fully edited 3-4 minute video, similar to the one above.  *must be in Northern Utah to qualify, or willing to drive to a designated location in Northern Utah for the shoot.   Giveaway is for a family video only.  No corporate/business related entries please.

Think of the possibilities for this service.  Engagement video, day in the life, playing at the park, your favorite family activity, family reunions, special events, how your family interacts with one another– all of those little things you never want to forget!

And I know from a whole lotta experience, James is the best of the best at what he does.

Have a wonderful weekend!

    Oh my how beautiful! Yes pictures are great, but they definitely can’t capture the cute little voices of kids or genuine laughter. Thanks for the opportunity!
