"I Carry Your Heart" Family Film

with myself & Sarah Driscoll

These sessions are photographed by myself and filmed by my partner Sarah Driscoll. Please visit http://therootandbud.com/book-us/ for more information.

Includes lifestyle newborn & family sessions. 


This session can be held at an outdoor location, or in your home. Or BOTH. We can start at home and move to an outdoor location nearby. The goal is to tell your family's story as authentically as possible. With two photographers, the mood will be fun, silly and upbeat and you will not have a moment missed. These sessions are our greatest passion. We want this to be more than a photography session for you. We want it to be your way of bottling up your story (right now) and keeping it forever. During our time together, we will do some posed shots-- all together in your home or outdoors. But, a majority of our session will be your real, authentic, bare-boned, true story. We will also ask you to continue on in your daily routine or to plan moments together that you are certain you want to remember--- like reading together in your son's bed, or playing cards beside the fireplace, or bathing your babies and the way the window light danced along their cute little bottoms, or cooking pancakes in the morning light while your daugher sits nearby with her, rocking yesterday's-braids, all as mess from a good night sleep and her mixed matched jammies.  All the while, we ask that you let us come along for the journey and capture the connections and belly laughs along the way. We want our photos  and video to help you remember all the messy little details of your life, love and home.

This session includes both photographs and a family film.

It includes about 100 digital images in an online gallery for you to keep and cherish forever-- as well as a 3 to 5 minute video put to music. These videos are emotional and raw and mean everything to us. We truly believe that every family should invest in one of these sessions at some point in order to keep their memories alive forever.
