What if my kids don’t talk yet?

If your children are too young to speak, the opposite parent can speak on behalf of the child about things that make the child smile or special activities or routines mom and baby do together.

What if my child is shy and doesn’t want to be interviewed?

Prior to the session, you’ll receive a questionnaire that your child can fill out or the opposite parent can assist the child in filling out so that answers are fresh in the mind.

We’ll begin by filming the entire family interacting. I’ll get to know your children and they will loosen up as we go. The questionnaire can be present at the interview as a refresher or can be read.

If your child prefers the opposite parent present during interviewing, that is fine as well! I don’t want this to be a stressful activity for your children so we’ll take our time!

Can mom be present during interviews about mom or help with the questionnaire?

The goal of the film is to be brand new to mom on Mother’s Day, having not heard answers to the questions until viewing the film. I encourage the opposite parent to assist writing and proofing the questionnaire prior to filming. However, there are some cases where this just may not be possible and that is ok! The film will still be priceless!

Will Love Letters to Dad be the same film with the interviews swapped?

No! I’ll prepare a fresh film with new music. Some footage of family together time may overlap from the Mother’s Day film but for the most part, they will be two different films. Love Letters to Dad will be delivered to your inbox the morning of Father’s Day, June 16, 2019.
