Jackson James Newborn Video - Plymouth, MI

Newborn sessions are my favorite. They take place in your home. You don’t have to pack everybody up (including that brand new beautiful babe!) and get them out the door. You stay put and I come to you, wherever that may be. Newborn sessions are comfortable, relaxed, and easy. Promise. Check out the adorable newborn film and photos from my latest session. Enjoy! xo, K

Make the Most of your Family Film

So you just received your family film on a USB. Now what? What do you do with it? Before anything .. BACK. IT. UP. Grab a free account at Vimeo, YouTube, or Dropbox and upload your film immediately. Download the video to your computer, the cloud, an external hard drive, your husband’s computer, and maybe your neighbors computer (lol, jk kind of). You get the picture, right? BACK IT UP. After downloading the film to every place possible, then put that pretty little USB in a safe place (like a safe!)

Okay, you’ve backed up your family film, now what? One of the most common questions I hear about family films is “what do you do with it?” You don't really have to DO anything with it. Think of them as home movies. Home movies are for reminiscing, enjoying that part of your life again, remembering the details of that specific day. Keep the videos safe so you or your kids can enjoy them in the future. It’s a keepsake. It’s the same with any other kind of movie. If you love it, you buy a copy and watch it whenever you want. Re-watching the film takes you back to that time in your life. And that is priceless.

What is the easiest way to watch and re-watch your family film? Add them to your phone home screen or favorites for easy access! Here are my iPhone directions (sorry to all the other fancy phones out there. I am sure you have a similar option!)

  1. Head straight to your Vimeo (or YouTube or Dropbox) link and click that little box with an upwards arrow.

  2. Scroll over until you find “Add to Home Screen” and click it

  3. Give your film a name!

  4. TA-DA! This will give you an icon on your phone to watch your film whenever and wherever. Pro tip: Add the film to your iPad .. kids love that shit!

Ciaramitaro Family Film - Livonia, MI

When I asked Ashlee what she wanted to document for their family film, she responded “weekend mornings are honestly the best.” Yes, yes they are! The Ciaramitaro’s spent their morning snuggling, playing, and making breakfast as big brother Eli begged to go outside (can you blame him?!) Ashlee laughed as Eli went outside in his pj’s. And then she looked at me and goes “that’s our life!”

Your life is perfectly imperfect. Your life contains precious details. Your life is worth documenting (yes, even on a Saturday morning before you can put makeup on). Thanks Ciaramitaro fam for letting me be a part of your story. xo, k

Motherhood Sessions - Lifestyle Family Photography - Howell, MI

MOMS! This blog post is for you. The bond between mama and child is like nothing else. I’ll be the first to tell you my mom is my best friend. I wouldn’t be where I am today without her love and support. Because of my relationship with my mom, I value motherhood sessions OH SO much. I want every mama out there to schedule a session with their little’s because YOU DESERVE IT.

You take care of everyone.
You don’t get sick days.
You work hard for your family everyday.
You deserve it.
