We had lots of fun shooting this one! Everyone loves to go out on sunny days to take photos, but what about the rainy ones? I have always wanted to shoot in the rain, personally I feel it would make for some really dramatic and fun shots. Figures that it took the courage of a child to make it happen : ) Rilyn was such a great sport, and for being such a “girly girl” she sure took to pouncing into puddles well!

This is the premiere Little Violets Moving Portrait and we couldn’t be more pleased to share it with ya’ll. Capturing a child’s movements, voice, and reactions really contributes to the creation of a rich portrait and memento to keep and share though the generations. For most of us, our familial documentation is scant if existent at all. We may have a few old pictures of our mother when she was a little girl, or some of us might be lucky enough to have some Super8 footage from some bygone vacation to Florida or birthday party.

Imagine having a Moving Portrait of your mother as a little girl, or yourself, or little one  to pass down, share, and enjoy on special occasions. We are very excited and thankful that we can use our gifts toward such a beautiful and worth end: family heirlooms.

We hope you enjoy,

The Violets

What is a Moving Portrait? A Moving Portrait is cinematic in nature, a collection of moving pictures/stills. Each frame is carefully considered, contributing to a momentum of imagery that tells a story and projects a feeling that is unique to you. Stills continue to play an integral role in the moving portrait. Laced throughout, stills let us hold  those moments in time that so easily slip through our fingers or go unnoticed revealing a part of ourselves or loved ones that passing time seems to rob us of. Inversely the cinematic element reminds us of the poetry of motion and subtlety of expression that a alludes the still. We hope you enjoy the first of many  Winding Violets Moving Portraits.

Sarah Rouleau It's so beautiful! I love how you can see every picture come together. I knew what the photo was going to be before I saw the actual pictures just from the movie part. I think it really demonstrates how a photographers "eye" works and how we see things that others don't. It looks like a lot of work went into it. It captures all of the moments so much more than just the picture. It captures the mood that isn't always "felt" in a photo. Are you planning on doing this with weddings? Awesome job! {March 12, 2010, 10:44pm}
TheViolets Thanks for your kind words Sarah. Glad you enjoyed it : ) {March 12, 2010, 11:40pm}
