I HELP YOU DOCUMENT YOUR FAMILY HISTORY ...IN THE MAKING
THROUGH AUTHENTIC PHOTOS AND BEAUTIFUL FAMILY VIDEOS.
Remember sitting around as a kid flipping through old photo albums with your parents or grandparents? You'd cuddle up on the couch and they'd reminisce about each of those stories:
"We got married in that old church on the side of town"
"That was at the family reunion at your great aunt's house"
"That was the first bike I learned to ride on"
"Now, this was your great-grandmother who lived up in Michigan on the old farmstead, and that sweet baby is your grandmother"
Now imagine sitting on your comfy couch thumbing through album pages while telling your kids all the stories.
All the messiness and the milestones are the chapters of your life
You want to remember all the little details of your family's life, whether those chapters reflect the messiness of the everyday or record the milestones that punctuate your life. Make it timeless and pass those stories down - don’t let your family stories perish on a thumb drive buried in a drawer.
At the same time, we're all so busy. It's hard to find time to keep the house clean much less design and print an album that will last a lifetime or interview your parents or grandparents on video.
But don't worry – You found me!
I love nothing better than to capture images of your family that you will love and print those beautiful images for you to cherish forever. Do you want to remember their little voices and mannerisms? A Family Film Session is the perfect way to capture your little’s personalities.
Let me take care of all the logistics in orchestrating your shoot, capturing all the love, and editing a sweet and emotive family film or printing museum-quality images for you to enjoy forever.
I’m Natasha Rigg
Family photographer and filmmaker for busy families who want to preserve their stories for future generations. I offer heirloom-quality photographic prints because they are important as art, but also as history - your family's history. I offer videos because I would give just about anything to hear the sound of my grandparent's voices again.
I’ve been photographing my own kids since 2010, and have offered professional family photography since 2016. I added family films to my repertoire in 2018, because wow! I love to capture my kids' personalities and voices and all their imaginings. Over the years, I’ve polished my craft through trial and error and more workshops than I can count focusing on everything from lighting to effectively capturing emotion, posing, and editing.
My latest passion
I’ve been compiling my grandmother’s memoirs, photos, and genealogy for my extended family. It has been a labor of love - I can hear her voice as I read her memoirs, and love to look through the many photos documenting our family history. I wish so badly that I could go back and record her telling us these stories in person, as she used to do around the kitchen table after a Thanksgiving feast, with all my cousins and I rapt with attention.
There is no easily accessible way for people to capture their own high-quality family history stories and relationships for themselves and I realized I could offer my expertise in media and storytelling to capture your family’s history to pass down to your children and grandchildren.
A Note About the Art
I’ve searched for the highest quality professional print labs the world over. I source only the highest quality products so that you can enjoy your artwork for a lifetime. Full resolution digital images are included with each piece of printed artwork, or if you really only want the digitals, those are available for purchase as well. Family Films are delivered to you on a beautiful thumb drive as a backup, but I also deliver these for download through my website.
Andrew & Tara
“Natasha came into our home as one of the first people to meet our newborn daughter. She was so very experienced and comfortable with handling our baby. She soothed baby easily.
Her imagination in posing our baby was fun to be a part of. Of course, the end result was uncompromising. Excellent photos taken by a consummate professional with a very high level of technical skill both behind the viewfinder and in post-processing.
We couldn't have been happier!”
