South Bend Family Video / South Bend Family Photography - April's "Beauty of a Second"

I genuinely have no clue where April went! I'm pretty sure I blinked and it was gone. I love these "Beauty of a Second" videos because it is always so much fun to look back and see how much my girl has changed in just one short month. For example, when I look back at March's video and the very first day of potty training, it is crazy to think that now, it has been over 6 weeks since an accident and going potty is just a part of our day now! (It seemed like such a huge mountain to climb in the beginning!) Watching these videos also makes me feel insanely lucky because I get to see all of the amazing and fun things that we are able to do, all thanks to a supportive husband who decided me being home most days with our girl was far more important than a predictable pay check and who encouraged me to follow my passion and offer documentary photography and video to other people in Michiana. 

Oh, and can we just talk about some of the beautiful weather we have had?! I can't wait for summer!

Michiana Family Film and Photography - Beauty of a Second: February

I have no idea where the month of February went but I DO know that I love this month's Beauty of a Second video! I'm still learning when it comes to video (heck, I'm still learning when it comes to photography...is there ever a point when we're not growing?) but I'm loving this project more and more. These videos give such a priceless glimpse of my girl as she grows. 

Love watching this "One Second a Day" videos? Don't miss Margaret Albaugh's February video

Granger Family Photographer - Beauty of a Second

As many of you may remember from my previous video announcement blog posts, I am starting to offer fusion films and event videos! I'm a firm believer in practicing your skills as often as possible and so, on top of a 365 project I decided to add a "Beauty of a Second" project as well. Essentially, this is just a video version of a 365 project; every day, I take a short video burst and then stitch them all together at the end of each month to create a film. This helps me get better at videography and also gives my husband something to look forward to because he LOVES these videos! It's so funny because when I use my camera to take pictures, it is second nature to me. I hardly even notice my fingers are changing settings as I shoot to optimize the outcome. As soon as I flip that setting over to "video" I feel like a 90 year old trying to figure out an iPad! Ok, I exaggerate, but it is definitely a new learning curve. But I love a challenge and I am definitely seeing improvement. And so, I share with you my January "Beauty of a Second" video:
