"TIME STANDS STILL BEST IN MOMENTS THAT LOOK SUSPICIOUSLY LIKE ORDINARY LIFE."(Brian Andreas)
Someday you'll be sitting together with your children (and grandchildren), reminiscing about "the good old days" while going through all the albums & videos we created together over the years. Family films with the kids trying to crack an egg & you fishing eggshell out of the cake batter, heirloom albums highlighting the best moments of bathtime & bedtime routine, a wall-portraitof you and your little guy on his first day of school, professional family videos from those days your little girl was learning to drive the boat or your son was trying his hand at waterskiing, a beautiful album with priceless imagery from the annual beach trip you used to take every year... I feel truly honored to be there in moments like these, capturing real moments with photography and video. The investment you make now to make sure these family memories are honored will always be a wise one.

Your family session with Kalimana Film Stories can include videography or photography, or a combination of both. Before the session experience, we'll meet to allow me to get to know your family better, plan your session, and talk about how you'll display photographs from this session in your home. Within 4 weeks of the session, we'll re-connect to view the final photographs and family video, and I'll walk you through the steps to display images in your home or plan to add them to a year-end family heirloom album collection.
