Awkward Photos Suck.
Welcome to the Happy Film Company!
Life around here is silly, laid-back, and always full of tickle fights. We keep things simple and we let kids lead the way. We create family photos AND VIDEOS (yippee!!) because we believe that a video is worth 2,000 words. Most of our clients live within 20 miles of Seattle and have kids ages 0-12.

Chamonix & Co. are seriously the best photographers in the area! We lucked out by finding them right when we moved here and have taken all of our family pictures with them since. They are so family (and kid!) friendly and you will LOVE all of the pictures they take. I highly recommend getting the video done too--it is something you will truly treasure. -Smith Family
"We've booked multiple photo shoots with The Happy Film Company and are consistently pleased with their work. All of the photographers that we have worked with, Ashley, Camille, and Chamonix, are friendly, fun and talented. THFC is unique because they offer a video shoot, which I highly recommend because they do a great job editing and pair the action with the perfect soundtrack. We love THFC so much that we want to spread the word to our friends and other families!"
Hands down this was the best photography experience of my life! We hope the Happy Film Company (tHFC)will be our photographer for many years and future events to come!! Thank you doesn't even seem like powerful enough words to express my gratitude! They are amazing!!! We will appreciate all they have given to our family! I love the video more and more each time I watch it and see my little boy :) — Everybody go get videos made by (tHFC).
We're not usually 'family portraits' kind of people...but after visiting the Happy Film Company's website and seeing their work, we felt their unique approach would be a good fit. From first contact to delivery our experience couldn't have been better. Communications were consistently excellent. We love the finished product and really appreciate the passion and professionalism that went into it. Thank you to tHFC.

tHFC took photos for our first family Christmas card photos and our daugher's 1st year and the results were magical! My baby was crying, had to be fed, diaper change, didn't smile much...but our photographer, remained calm, came up with good shot ideas and got amazing photos that I cherish. I love their video option too...a special way to easily remember moments without actually realizing you are being filmed during the shoot. I also appreciate the value of their pricing system - which makes it feasible to do multiple shoots for different occasions. They are wonderful and easy to work with - so capture those memories now!
Hi, I'm Chamonix!
I created the Happy Film Company in 2013 to give families a magical way of capturing their children's lives with photos AND video. The films we create are upbeat and full of playful movement and attention to the special little details you never want to forget. When you watch our videos, I want you to feel an explosion of love and happiness that will always make you smile. That's our mission; to spread happiness around the world, one little video at a time. :) Learn more about me & my team.
