"One of the joys of parenthood is observing our children’s direct and unguarded expression of their feelings—their hopes, dreams and desires. Our children share that with us on a daily basis, and their joy is our joy. At Portraits that Move, we want to document the essence of your children exactly as they are, in their own voice, with all they have to teach us. Our gift to you is an elegant, high-quality moving image to keep for your family history, and for your heart. We are deeply grateful to have the opportunity to create this work for every one of you."    -Susannah Ludwig, Portraits that Move
