"I wanted to preserve my strong, vibrant, ever-cheerful grandpa. I needed my boys to remember this amazing juxtaposition of their earliest excitement about Judaism and my aging grandpa beaming over them, handing them the torch.
So I hired someone to document our celebration of these two occasions. Susannah Ludwig, Founder and Executive Producer of “Portraits that Move.” Susannah creates mini-documentaries about kids and their families. Her work is beautiful and her subjects are captivating— kids being kids, playing in the park, showing off their toys, and talking about what they want to be when they grow up. I take these types of mental videos all of the time of my kids, as they play Lego hour after hour in our living room, as they run around the bases in Little League, as I walk with them to school or pick them up at the bus stop. On the one hand, I’m sure that I’ll remember these moments forever, but experience has taught me that I won’t."
Forbes interviews Susannah Ludwig about Portraits that Move and the value it gives parents.
What Ludwig and her team are offering is essentially a video journal of children growing up. It’s the modern equivalent of home videos. It’s brilliant! And the best part is that you get to capture the moment while still living in the moment.
Working Mother writer Kelli Daley interviews Susannah Ludwig in Working Mom Q&A: Susannah Ludwig, Founder of Portraits that Move.
This Brooklyn, NY-based single mom has made it her business to capture children's best moments on video.
Technology? We love it. And we love being able to document the milestones of our children's lives with apps and tools unheard of during our own childhoods. But in a tech-obsessed world, the pressure to record everything can be overwhelming. If we are all for fewer, better things, that should include our digital lives as well. Portraits that Move founder Susannah Ludwig gets this, and has made a career of showing parents the very best of their kids, in a natural setting.
