I’ve reached a turning point with my daughter. Over the last year she’s requested her picture/video be taken and has a bit of an opinion about the details. I adore that she cares and realizes how important it is to capture our memories. At speical events I try hard to find a happy medium of being in the moment and documenting the moment. I try not to worry too much about the technical side of photography and always have two goals, capture the scene of the event & capture the guest of honor enjoying a moment. Shortly after the party started she requested a video of her and her friends being pushed into the water by little brother and a new feeling came over me. The photos I was about to take needed to fill her needs, not mine. It needed to be candid, fun and tell her story. A lot of this video was edited with her sitting next to me telling me which clips she wanted included. We made a memory, and a sweet turning point, putting this together. Hope it inspires you.
