A Family on the Move
Does a home have more value to a person once they know they are leaving it forever? I think it does. As with many things in life, we don’t know what we have until it’s gone.
The Bedore family knows the value of the sacred space they’ve called home for many years. It’s where Mickeli & Allison welcomed their kids into the family. Where neighbors became friends. The place where the heaven of summer on a lake could be found in their front yard.
But, the Bedore family are self-proclaimed adventurers. They’ve cherished the current adventure and are ready for the next. That being Whitefish, Montana, where mountains will replace the lake and where wide open space will replace the hustle and bustle of life near a city.
About a month before they were set to move, I was given the honor of filming them one last time so they could remember the home and the memories made there.
The night was warm and the light was beautiful as the family made the rounds through their backyard. First, they jumped on the trampoline followed by showing me their pub. Next, the entire family found a swing and the set almost fell over!
The kids played at the beach and the family enjoyed a snack, as Mickeli and Allison sang the kids a song. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful evening, but I’ll let the film tell the rest of the story.
