Hey there! I'm Hollie.

My love for story-telling started early. When I  was about 7 or 8, my sisters and I would create our own newscasts in our back playroom. We'd make up all kinds of stories and we'd draw the 7-day forecast on blue construction paper. We even made up our own commercials! I would read the latest, make-believe headline, while sipping hot chocolate out of my coffee mug, like a real pro! And our poor mom had to record it all. ​

Fast-forward to my degree in Broadcast Journalism and five years as a television news reporter. My playroom dreams became a reality.

In 2015 I got married and because of my husband's military career, I knew I  needed a job that was flexible and that I  could do anywhere. We move almost every 2 years, so in 2016 I  decided to start my own videography business. My grandma was a big inspiration and another reason I  wanted to start my own business. 

I truly love story-telling. The process of crafting and creating a story from the very beginning is an adventure. I love when the story starts to take on a life of it's own and we create this harmonious visual to go with it. I'm a real believer in "goose-bump" moments. Music is a huge part of my life. It was a way for my husband and I  to connect while he was deployed and it remains a powerful part of our relationship. I  love getting to search through my music database to find the perfect song(s) for your wedding film or small business film. 

I love to collaborate and explore ideas. I  am a true believer in candid, genuine moments and story telling. A favorite quote of mine is_

"Take care of all your memories for you cannot relive them."_ Bob Marley
