The Mastermans as a Family of Four
Here is Part 3 of behind-the-scenes stills I took during the filming of the Masterman's family film, coming soon! This day started out as an adventure. It was 13 degrees out, and I was up before anyone else in our family (which never happens). We'd just had a mild to moderate snowstorm, and it was still coming down when I left. At 8:30 am, no one was on the roads but the plows and me. Because my planned route to Skowhegan was impassable with 5 inches of snow (and I knew it involved a very tight bend), I took an alternate route through the beautiful countryside. Mainers who seem to never emerge from their houses were out greeting each other and shoveling or plowing and digging out their mailboxes. Some people stared at my car like I was nuts for being out. And yes, I was going slow enough to make eye contact...
It took me almost an hour to make a half-hour drive, but boy, was it worth it! Icy trees and beautiful powder-covered everything. Their property is amazingly beautiful. I had so much fun hanging out with the Mastermans, getting to hold Liam, playing superheroes and a couple rounds of Hi Ho Cherry-O. Some of my favorite video footage I've ever taken was with Abby holding Liam that day. I can't wait to get started on their film. Oh! And one of the best parts was tubing down their driveway.
They are adjusting so well and balancing everything. Abby & Ethan told me they've known each other for a long time, and it really shows when it comes to how they work together, readily passing the baby off and picking up the other's slack without any negotiation. Their seamless balancing act comes naturally to them. It's obvious they are best friends.
This isn't a complete photo story or anything, just a little glimpse of some of the fun we had that day. I'll share more about their story when I release their film in a few weeks. Enjoy!
