Seasons of love

31 Jul

How do you measure a year in the life of a family?

Today we are sharing a very special film that has been one year in the making. I think I’ve fallen in love with this family and their sweet life. Even I get weepy when I watch the final product.

After documenting the Rebane family in their new home over four gorgeous seasons, I know that this film will help them remember some of the moments and details that makes every year worth remembering.

A cute sidenote: In the beginning, daughter Kaia wasn’t so sure about being filmed. One year later, after we wrapped our last shoot, we all took a break to enjoy some ice-cream on their family front step. Kaia turned to her mother and sweetly asked, “Mama, can Bridget come live with us?” Adorable.

And the love-note from Melanie “Mama” Rebane:

“Bridget, I can’t believe how beautiful the film is. I always knew it would be wonderful, but this was truly amazing. I bawled through the whole thing. It was incredible. I LOVED every second.

You are sooo incredibly talented, such an artist’s eye, this was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen!

Now, I need to capture this year…I really don’t want another year to go by without this!

    Bridget, it truly is a marvelous piece of work. You could warm your hands on the emanations from that family. Only thing is, you made me look like an old guy (ha, ha).

    Bridget – your work is outstanding! I have had the opportunity to get to close Melanie’s family this past year and your film has captured their true spirit. Thank you for sharing this with everyone. I hope that more families invite you into their lives to allow you to film their priceless moments.

    You are more than an artist – you are a memory maker. xoxo
