michel’s request: daisy chains
my request: grassy field/golden sun/happy family
michel and i wanted to get out there and do a few home movie sessions together, so we asked emily and fam to meet up with us on sunday. and just in case you dont read emilys blog-they are expecting baby love number three in september. this is a magical time for them!
we drove around the rancho sante fe area until we found the perfect patch of grass, nestled on a perfect little hill, sitting below the golden sun and sky.
the girls explored and mick and emily relaxed while i wandered around doing my thing. we were all so blissed out, to use a boho girl term. michel was like a fly on the wall, watching over everything as it took place, so laid back and relaxed and comfortable in his approach to recording what happened that we hardly noticed him there. and that is why i could never in a million years have imagined that in the short time we were together, that he could create something so absolutely heart stoppingly special.
but he did.
i feel like i cannot accurately express my feelings about what he has created. so i will let it speak for itself. i think it does.
we have another one planned for later this month with another very special family, and several inquiries coming in. for more information, go to www.tarawhitney.com or read this! (We are also offering this as a “special side” without the large package for $1525)

EDITED AGAIN: YOUR RESPONSE HAS COMPLETELY OVERWHELMED ME. i knew that if i had the reaction i did so would many, many others…but i had NO idea, NONE whatsoever, that this little film would touch so many people the way it has. i still have no words. i just feel very very lucky to have connected with michel, and very very lucky to be able to do this as my job.
we have had some people ask if we are taking this show on the road, and yes, absolutely we are interested in doing that. i will be traveling four times this year, and michel has already said he would love to tag along…more information on me, traveling, in the next blog post.
