A note from a Videographer’s wife

Hi, we likely never met and never will.
I feel like i know you, from clips and snipits of footage my love puts together for you…
This is a friendly note to say, please dont belittle his work, dont lowball his quotes, dont ask for cheaper rates or adjustments.
When he does videowork, he charges for his time. Time spent carefully planning shots, edit ideas, cool views and angles, his brain is taking it in, imagining your finished product.
He charges for his time, time away from Family, from home, from seeing our daughter. If your event is 15 minutes or more away, thats even more time away while he travels.
So in reality, your quote should be way more, if you accounted for 3 peoples valuable time away from one another.
Be grateful, be kind, feed him, take care of him for me, because when he is working for you, he focuses on just that.

Remember to value the talent, the worker and the shared experience.

Kindergarten update month 1

Well.
She loves kindergarten
She loves her friends
She loves activities they do, the books they read, the bus ride to and from school, she loves the teacher and her helpers.
In short, she loves school, she started a new chapter and she’s loving every second.
If only I were so brave, and bold to take life by the horns and not be fearful. It seems to me that as much as I can teach my 5 year old, she can teach me just as much about myself, life, hope, faith and love. Never have I met such a kind person as my daughter. People say the way kids grow up to be is a reflection of the parents that raise them. I must be a lucky one to have been blessed with such an amazing little person, such a kind loving fun spirited little person. So in short it’s been a month, she loves it, we’re still in the process of learning to have a school age child ready to face the world.
Be brave little one and go conquer the world…i will be here for you always.
