Family Video in Hawley, Minnesota

A perfect summer evening; can take so many forms. A perfect Minnesota evening? Ask and you’d get a similar answer from ninety percent of us. Take a peek at this family video in northern Minnesota of the Marshalls for proof.

Due to the nine months of the year, we won’t even mention, that we Minnesotans yearn for warmth, sun, and unfrozen bodies of water. For me, it's a sunset, a lake, and time with family.

The Marshall family has it all built right in their backyard. They’ve ensured they get the most out of their summer by living a life where the odds are pretty great for the perfect evening.

I showed up to film at their beautiful, lakefront home in Hawley, MN, right as they were getting ready to head outside to play. The deep green trees, at their peak, filtered Mother Nature’s generous sunset.

It was an honor to be a fly on the wall to the conversations, giggles, and moments shared. Breanne shared how meaningful it was for her to be included in the memories when we chatted before the day. 

Mothers often become the documentarians of the family’s everyday life. In turn, they show up infrequently in the photos and videos. The goal quickly became not only to document the family’s sacred time together but also to give Breanne a glimpse into how wonderful of a mother she is. How lovingly she looks at her kids and husband. The way she puts the family first. She does it all without a second thought and with a smile.

The film turned out better than I could have imagined and I'm so happy to share this family with you! Enjoy!

Interested in family film but you don't live near Minneapolis? Not to worry, I travel! I'd love to hear about your family and the place you call home. Contact me today for more information.
