Snapshots and Scenes of June

It has taken me a long while to begin to find my ‘voice’ on camera, and to find a way to share my interpretation and experience of our family life in a way that I feel accurately represents us. Our chatty vlogs are beginning to find an audience and little makes me happier than beginning to recognise the names of repeat commenters and knowing that we have friends in the world whom we have never even met who are following our family story and rooting for us. I have received so many kind comments of late, useful advice and tales of commiseration, and it makes me feel glad that Channel Mum took a chance on me as a sponsored vlogger last year and confident about continuing to create new content.

With that said, sometimes I miss the dreamy, atmospheric sort of video that captured us wordlessly, that focuses on being beautiful rather than telling a complicated story. So this summer, I plan to indulge in a little sixty-second video each month that sums up our previous thirty days, be that by documenting one adventure or capturing tiny snippets of the entire month. And I would love for you to join me, and the other hosts of Snapshots and Scenes by linking up your posts and the bottom of this one.  And please do check out the other hosts –  ChloeMel, Kerri-Ann, Maria, Jenny, Sara-Jayne and Hayley as well.

    Oh your gorgeous video is so so precious. I love the emotion and every day moments of this project. I am so excited to see what you create each month darling. Amazing that you found your voice and channel mum too thats huge. I am tryign to learn how to edit and get better at vlogging as I love it. Just need more confidence and quick to edit as it takes me hours. I love the creativity of these 60 second clips of your lives put together so beautifully.

    I’ve really embraced the chatty video style recently, and I love the community over on youtube. But I’m so with you that it’s exciting to use Snapshots and Scenes to focus on a tiny bit of creative video. Love that you got some footage of you taking photos in your video, feels very true to life : )
