March Family Film

"To the outside world, we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We live outside the touch of time."
-Clara Ortega


Each time I make one of these family films I'm touched by the sentimentality of it. My childhood lives in memories, stored away in my unreliable brain. As time passes, the details of the moments fade a bit. My intention with these videos is to preserve my children's memories, to document this fleetingly special moments in their lives.

Our March flew in on a winter storm and out on a spring breeze. So much life lived in a single month, all the ordinary, mundane, repetitive moments stacked one right after the other. I am so pleased to have recorded a handful of them to keep forever.
