one day {may}



music credit: On Top of the World by Imagine Dragons


There is something so special about video
and the way that is captures memories.
I absolutely love taking and looking at photos
but video is so real and so alive.

And I loved making and sharing our 'one day' in april
so I've decided to make it into a little series,
where I'll share a family day from start to finish.
Just one random day in our lives.

Capturing the real memories of our family
at this exact moment in time.
The moments when my husband carries our first born on his shoulders.
The moments I see each morning as we start our day together with cuddles and a play in bed.
The moments when the beautiful boy was enchanted by seeing a fairy story come to life.
The moments where the beautiful girl's face erupts into smiles and laughter.

Our real life.
Just one day of it.

  2. Aw I love this- I love how videos give you such an insight into family life, it almost makes you feel like you were a part of the day! Every time I see a video on a blog I think I must do my own- I am too lazy with the editing though! May be I will do a little montage of our holiday- you have inspired me. Maybe. ;) x

    1. Oh you should put them together. We took lots of little clips with the beautiful boy when he was tiny but I've kind of made it my mission to make some proper videos of us all since the little miss came along. x

  17. Oh my god I just watched this minutes before I have to go out and I'm all teary now! Made me cry seeing them in the bath as I love bathing my little ones together too. So lovely. Can I be nosey and ask what you edit your videos using? I have Camtasia I used to use for work but never tried doing much with it. I love yours! L x

    1. Bath time is my favourite time with my two as well, they are just so lovely together.
      I use iMovie to edit my videos together and I really like it. It's a bit weird when you first start but great when you get used to it. x

  18. You do not know how much Lucy your blog saves me everyday, I have been struggling so much of late and I come here and I smile, not little smiles big ones. I love this video, I love this idea, I only said to Ash last week we never video our babies enough as you quickly forget the little things, this video is proof that the little things are the most important. There are so many points in this video that make my heart sing, BG little tongue popping out, how BB puts the sponge on her head, seeing them side by side in their pushchair but most of all seeing a family with so much love xxxx

    1. Awww, this comment made me cry Kara. It really is the little things that are the most important. And each day has dozens of those little moment that can make your heart sing if you look out for them. I'm glad this made you smile. x

  19. I'm the one who likes the still pictures, and hubby is the one who loves video, so we get lucky and have a house full of both. :)
