A Special Video

You may know that I am a camera (wo)man for Jordan’s videography business. Well, this weekend, we shot an amazing gala that was being held to raise money for the local children’s hospital. Our videography services were a donation, and also a thank you. Jordan’s niece was born prematurely and spent the first several months of her life in the hospital’s NICU. Needless to say, this event was near and dear to our hearts.
Jordan’s sister, Janelle, was one of the event’s speakers. She shared the story of her daughter, Bella’s, birth, and the challenges they faced as Bella fought to survive. As if this wasn’t enough to make me tear up, she also shared the video Jordan put together of the 1st year of Bella’s life. Tears were officially falling. What an emo videographer I am.
Anyways, I realized that while I had shared one of the wedding videos we shot, along with a few compilation videos Jordan put together, I never shared the Bella video with you. It is very special to us and I hope you will enjoy it.

    what an amazing movie!!! what a beautiful baby girl! good to see that she’s happy now!
    I have such a story, too.
    My little twin sisters were born five years ago at week 27. My mums placenta removed…
    It was such a horrible time, but then suddenly they were two months old and they get to go home and then suddenly they were one.
    Sadly they died in a bad car accedent 3 years ago (let’s not talk about this, it makes me sad, because these two amazing girls, i love them more than everything else and it hurts, it hurts soo much)

    And now I’m crying. What a beautiful way to celebrate a fierce little warrior. She is lovely, and I’m sure this video means the world to her parents and in a few years to her as well. The videos that you make are just breathtaking.

    What an amazing story! My mother was a NICU nurse for years- I have the utmost respect for them, and I think they have the hardest job in the world. Life is so sweet.

    Oh God, I can totally relate! Or, better said, my mother can, since I was also born prematurely, in the middle of my mothers 5th month pregnancy. I was in a hospital too for about 4 months. I was looking at Bella, and saw myself. Really an amazing video. Well, this proves only one thing – girls are big warriors! 🙂
