Full Family Film | Severson Family | Summer 2020

  • Sep 15, 2020

Before each full family film session, I always chat with both parents over the phone or on a Zoom call. This helps to make sure we communicate about what we’ll do during the session as well as expectations from both sides.

“Freddie is just like Brett,” Steph warmly said on our pre-session consultation phone call. “He’s so smily. Scarlett loves to wake him up from his nap and boop him on the nose.”

These small details are what help make family films so precious. Steph and Brett welcomed little Freddy into their home earlier in 2020 and it was time to continue to tell the story through films and photos. I’ve had the pleasure of working with them twice in the past and I just LOVE seeing the progression. (I’ll link the other posts below so you can experience it too!)

The family’s Edina, MN, home created the perfect backdrop as Scarlett showed me the best hiding spots for her treasures. As Freddie woke from nap, we headed to a nearby pond where the family spends time relaxing and skipping rocks.

When Steph received the film, she text me the following, shared with her permission; Jen, I have only seen Brett cry a handful of times and the video you made was one of them. Absolutely blew it out of the water. Thank you so much 🙏🏻❤️

Congratulations, Severson family, on the newest addition to your family! View their full family film above and select photos below from their session!

Freddie was so happy when he woke up from his nap!

Scarlett has such a special relationship with both her parents.
