Becoming a small business owner was not my plan 5 years ago, but now that I am, I’m in it for the long haul.
Little Love Stories takes your home movies and creates custom documentaries celebrating your life. Little Love Stories started as a way for me to edit my children’s lives and then I started editing your children’s lives, and I suspect that one day I will be editing your children’s, children’s lives.
There is Facebook and Twitter and Pintrest and all the rest- meant to connect us, but how many of us really feel connected? Life is happening in the little moments, in the every day phone calls and mundane hugs and kisses- as we walk in and out of doors- to and from one another. I spend my work time editing what would otherwise be forgotten in the colossal landscape of everyday. I’m a time traveler, a memory keeper, and architect of emotion.
Can Google define that for me? Can they make that easier to sell? Can we bottle goosebumps? Can we connect our hearts?
Little Love Stories gives me the opportunity to tell the story of peoples lives. And while my business is small, your stories are huge.
On any given day my work has introduced me to anyone from survivors of the Holocaust to immigrants who started from nothing and made it big in this country. I have met new families, huge families, and new life.
Your stories have filled my office (and my head) with joy and laughter. I have watched your children say their first words, walk their first steps, and smile their first smile. I have woken up in the middle of the night to sit at my desk and type the perfect quote into your title cards. I have met with you from far and wide, relived your weddings, your retirements, and every moment in between- all from the seat of my editing chair.
When you read my blog and visit our website- you connect to me and my family and our business. You grow me spiritually and you give me goosebumps. I love telling your stories. I love that my stories remind some of you of your own early years with your families. I love that for others of you- it’s the landscape you’d like your adult life to resemble. I love that for many of you, our life looks so much like yours.
I do what I do because it feeds my soul when I listen and connect with yours. I do what I do because moments pass, memories fade, but video last forever. I do what I do because on any given day the landscape of my life could change and not one second will pass with out my full gratitude.
This business and my brand defines me- but I am now defined by your stories who live in my heart.
Thank you for your comments, your likes, your business, your questions, your videos, your stories, and your shares- I’m building a business with your help and I am so appreciative of each and every moment that we share together.
