WHY FILM? AREN'T PHOTOS ENOUGH?
Have you ever stepped outside and caught the smell of a scent on the breeze that reminded you of a previous place or time? Heard the sound of children laughing and been transported back to your own childhood?
Our senses are an integral part of both the creation of memories and their recollection. Film is a multi sensory art form which has the ability to capture a series of moments that evoke a number of our senses. It gives us the opportunity to relive not just one moment but a series of moments in our lives both through visual and audio means.
Life is fleeting. The moments pass by in the blink of an eye. You think to yourself that you'll remember all the little quirks and passing habits of your babies as they grow and change, but the truth is there are so many...
The curl of the bottom lip, the chunky little thighs, the squeaky little voice and funny mispronunciations.
Wouldn't you love to be able to re live the sound of your child's voice when they were younger, the way they moved as a tiny tot, the special interactions shared between loved ones, the way you used to look? Wouldn't you love to hear little things that were said that you may have forgotten all about had they not been captured on film?
No amount of words can ever describe how much of a treasured family keepsake a family film is until you have one of your own.
THIS IS YOUR STORY.
I love to encourage parents to get into the film as well. These films are for all of you to enjoy together! But if you prefer just your children that ok too!!

Q. & A.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
I will spend roughly two hours with you and your family and I am like a fly on the wall. I like to suggest that you have a few activities planned, nothing over the top, just some activities that you and your family usually like to do together! This could be something as simple as playing games in the back garden together.
WHERE DO WE FILM?
We can film in your own home or in a nearby park of your choosing. You may be asking but what if my house isn't picture perfect? Don't worry! We are great at filming in and around any mess or clutter! We understand that children live in the house! and don't kids just love to make mess!!! But guess what?! Here at Hayley Narvaez Films we will favour honest and real over perfect any day !
SHY ABOUT BEING INFRONT OF THE CAMERA?
Don't let that stop you! Remember that this film is not for today, or for tomorrow, this film is for your family to cherish in years to come when everyone has aged and changed.
Hayley Narvaez Films aims to capture your family, as they are, in a non-intrusive and natural way. This film is for you and your family and nobody else has to see it unless you want them to.
