Baby on the way? Schedule multiple shoots at once and save! We recommend doing maternity photos in months 8 or 9 of pregnancy and newborn photos within 2 weeks after birth. Each shoot is 30-60 minutes and include 75-100 images. We do newborn shoots in your home; it's easier, more comfortable, and captures the beauty of real life.

Welcome to the Happy Film Company! We create playful happy videos and photos for families in Seattle. We keep it simple by offering one package and you can use it for any type of shoot: Family Portraits, Maternity & Newborn Shoots, Birthday Parties, 1st Year Cake Smashes and Family Reunions. Join our mailing list to get notified of upcoming mini sessions - we offer them regularly throughout the year: SIGN UP!

During your shoot, we simultaneously take photos & record video (on the same camera!) which means you'll have still photographs to hang on the wall AND matching video clips to bring those photo memories back to life. Video captures so much more than a still photo ever can on it's own, which is why we like to give every family the option to get both photos and videos. Happy!

During your shoot we're recording SO MANY video clips!  Instead of giving you a folder full of random short, shaky, out of context, video clips that you'll probably never look at again (let's be honest), we get crafty and stitch them together into a mini film masterpiece that is super fun to watch and easy to share with friends & family online. Families tell us that they watch their Happy Film videos over and over and over again with their kids for years. Kids LOVE the videos because they're fast-paced-eye-candy and the kids get to see themselves playing with their family. Happy Films are also perfect for capturing birthday parties and family reunions - anytime you want to document a beginning-to-end event.
