Small Fry Films: Valentine’s Day

Today’s film, brought to life by the genius Jenner Brown of Lumineux Films, was especially lovely for us to make, check out why… Thank you to the Crepe Co. (the most awesome creperie located in Provo, UT — try the French Kiss crepe and return and report!) for providing us with the beautiful space to hold our interviews. And to all our twenty-six amazing interviewees and their supportive mothers, you’re all stars! You can see all of our Small Fry + Lumineux films here. And here’s our YouTube channel as well!

Small Fry Films: Joy & Ruby

Our friend Joy, of Oh Joy! is a force to be reckoned with. She is smart and driven, caring and warm; she is the kind of woman you’d want to call for business advice, and then go to the mall. Joy literally wrote the book on blogging: Blog, Inc. Her sweet daughter Ruby is such a wonderful addition to Joy’s world, and as impressive and incredible as Joy is, Ruby steals the spotlight every time! Film by Jenner Brown of Lumineux Films. We spent the afternoon with Joy and Ruby and couldn’t help but try and seep in all the wisdom and experience … Read more

Small Fry Films: Brooke & London

After a pretty heavy few days, (we can’t thank you all enough for your loving words and support!) we knew exactly what we’d need: a shot of sunshine. There is no one better for the job than our friend Brooke White. Singer, songwriter (Christmas album out now!), former American Idol contestant, editor of the darling site The Girls With Glasses and mama to the chubbiest, sweetest baby girl, London. Within seconds of Jenner’s rolling film, we were all behind the scenes in tears. Brooke has the uncanny ability to dance through life with contagious effervescence. She is the first to admit … Read more

Small Fry Films: Winter Workshop

Meet the McPhersons: Kristina, Bella, Coco and Miles. Today while the man of the house, Ben, is busy being a professional painter, Kristina is concocting tiny works of art with her three beautiful kids for their tree. Kristina’s interactions with her kids were so consistently sweet, it reminded us of this quote by Rose Kennedy, “I looked on child rearing not only as a work of love and duty but as a profession that was fully as interesting and challenging as any honorable profession in the world and one that demanded the best that I could bring to it.” Even … Read more

Small Fry Films: Watercolor Cut Outs

Fostering creativity in our kids isn’t so much an action as it is a reaction. You can’t force them to do creative things, but you can concoct opportunities for their creativity to emerge. And even then, the result is rarely what you think it would or should be. It’s better, because it’s all them. Huge thank you to the genius Jenner Brown of Lumineux Films for this gorgeous video, enjoy! To see more Lumineux films, click here and to keep up with his amazing portfolio read his blog here.
