After filming this family, I was ready to move in with them. Partly because they live in beautiful, remote, La Sal, about 45 minutes away from Moab, and partly because they were such a joy to be around. And their 6 year old will teach me to ride a dirt bike.
I love family videography. It is so rewarding to capture simple, intimate moments in a family. I loved filming Caitlin as she danced with her daughters in the living room. I loved capturing the siblings play both mischievously and so sweetly. Also, I loved filming Bryan and Caitlin together. Newlyweds are a joy, but filming a couple that has been married for years and is smack in the middle of raising children was special and inspiring. My husband and I know that amidst the joy, frustration, and chaos of kids, it is so important to pause and remember how much we love each other. I loved filming Bryan and Caitlin snuggle and laugh genuinely. I gave practically no direction. They still have the love.
Kids grow and change so fast, but this little film has preserved this stage of the Ballard's life forever. And what a lovely, cute, spontaneous stage it is!
