Baby on Board

We announced our second little one in early March. I used a program called RPG maker to create a 'game'' that revealed our good news at the end of a scripted sequence. Knowing that the vast majority of people would not take the time to 'play' the game, I recorded myself going through the game using a program called xsplit (local recording feature that saves the raw footage right to my computer). The 'game' was still quite long and I did as much editing as I thought I could get away with, but still it was a bit longer than I would have liked. We were sure to include our son Trent as the main character and it worked out just right.

But suddenly droves of families were posting across social media talking about the safest and 'best' place to take the family or pets for pictures; a field here, a pasture there, a side of… Continue reading BlueBonnets – It’s a Texas Thing!
