the Happy Film Company - Sor 21-9-5.jpg

Welcome to the Happy Film Company! We create playful happy videos and photos for families in Seattle. Join our mailing list to get notified of upcoming mini sessions & pop-up shoots - we offer them regularly throughout the year: SIGN UP!

During your shoot, we can 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!


  • YES, you can bring your dog.

  • If it rains, we usually reschedule.

  • Props are always a fun idea.

  • Photos & Videos are all edited & high-resolution. We deliver them online. Delivery takes up to 2 weeks.

  • We know your kids are hyper, shy, sleepy, moody, teary, superheros....whatever you got, bring it on! We've seen it all and we aren't afraid. Kids are kids. Parents are actually the scary ones. Our favorite parents to work with are the laid-back, playful, loving ones. Parents who are strict, stiff and/or micromanaging their children make it very challenging for us to have a fun shoot and capture the happy photos we are known for. Just sayin’ ;)
