When I realized I can combine my videography, photography, and video design talents to create a birth video, my heart jumped. Instantly I began wanting to help others capture the tender intimate moments of labor and delivery. Why? Because of my own unforgettable memories of my own four children, helping deliver my five grandchildren, and witnessing my best friend’s first born. But there’s another reason; having the desire to help others hold onto that unforgettable life-changing event.
I, the youngest of seven, was often seen holding a camera. That lead me to take the two-year course of visual communications in high school. Year after year, my husband and four children saw me diligently keep up with our photo albums and videos. Once our kids didn’t need quite as much attention, I began my own video design business. Wanting to do more, I began working for Total Broadcasting Service, designing videos for 14 years for the internet.
These are just a few of the many things that have increased my desire to
master videography, leading me to begin my new business.
