Today’s video winner is someone near and dear to me. Gina Zeidler of Minneapolis is a professional photographer that tagged along with Natalie Norton, who photographed our family last year. She was sneaky enough to get some video while Natalie was shooting and then made the most darling little video that I will treasure forever – and we actually shared the video with friends and family last year in lieu of printed Christmas cards for a change of pace (so liberating to do one less project actually).
Hello, lucky us. Natalie and Gina both documenting our family for a couple hours? Dreamy. And more importantly, these are 2 rare gems in the world. Giant hearts. Insanely talented. Devoted to doing good in the world. I love them.
So back to the video … Gina made this little number of Miss Emily Ley just being with her sweet baby. And what’s even more fun is that I’ve become familiar with Emily through social media and totally dig what she does and how she has built her brand (I love her little video on the home page). So I apologize in advance … but if you didn’t already know these gals, you now have 2 photographers that you’ll want to photograph your family and you’ll have a whole collection of planners, stationery, and accessories that you’ll want to buy. ; )
This is called Sleep Baby. A minute and a half of pure preciousness. I know this comes during a time when so many of us have heavy hearts about the sweet children whose lives ended tragically last weekend in Newtown, CT. May this be motivation to get more video footage of our children … with our children.
Equipment used: Canon 5D Mark II and 35MM lens.
