Savage Family Lifestyle Video
Meet the Savage family. This sweet family bought and recently renovated there (stunning) forever home (you can check out her blog here- she shows her wonderful home renovation photos.) I knew this family would give me the opportunity I needed to help me further my career as a lifestyle family videographer, something I have been wanting to do for so long now.
I have always wanted to get into videography, but was worried how I would keep everything consistent with what I currently offer. I love doing all things family and didn’t want to stray from that, so, I’m not going too!!!! I’ll be announcing the types of lifestyle videography I will be doing and more THIS WEEK!
I recently saw a comment about video from someone I love and follow , “Video is a creative medium that can only exist because of photography. It's actually just a series of image "frames" played back to back to show movement, an extension of photography so to speak. But that extra movement makes all the difference in the world when it's footage of your own child or a family member who's passed away.” - Courtney Holmes. This hits home for me as someone who loves watching my childhood videos and getting to see family members in them that are no longer with us. I want that for my children and my clients and their children as well.
The photography industry is one of those that is ever evolving and changing, as we grow in our work and art we tend to transition and even change what we specialize in, we follow our hearts. Family videography is now going to be something I will be pursing heavily for Amanda Nicole Photography (and films!) and I cannot WAIT to show you the magic we have in store. As a photographer, I know there is never ending growth when learning a new medium so while I want to hesitate and wait until I have perfected videography to release them…. I have to start somewhere!!! So, here is my VERY first lifestyle family video.
Ashley with SimpleSavage blog just did a wonderful blog post on their session and what it means to them! Check it out below.
JULY 27, 2019 / LIFESTYLE
“I had to take a break from our normal Saturday renovation blog post to share with y’all this amazing lifestyle video by Amanda Nicole Photography. We are absolutely in awe of the beauty, love, and connections captured in this 8 minute lifestyle video. When Amanda first approached me about doing a lifestyle video, I had never heard of it before. She showed me an example of the kind of video she was looking to do, and I immediately knew this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. Amanda took the time to get to know our family and what our typical day looks like to make sure she was able to capture what our family is all about. She asked questions that allowed me to brainstorm fun ideas to incorporate into this video that would fit our family. She even sent over a questionnaire to help get to know us before capturing these special moments in our day.
I told Amanda that our favorite time as a family was Saturday mornings, cooking breakfast, and enjoying family time. She got to our house at 7:30AM, which is when our day starts, to capture our morning routine. It was amazing to me that seemingly imperfect moments, she made perfect. She was able to make connections with our kids and even the dog, which allowed them to feel safe and trust her during our day spent together filming. We are forever grateful for Amanda and the time and undeniable effort she put into making this video that we will cherish forever. In addition to family photos, this is a great way to document your family through the years, and I truly believe there is no better person to do this than Amanda Nicole Photography.”
