A Mom owned business!
"Cool Dog was born as I was looking for a way to entertain our guests at my wedding while our pictures were taken. Just down the street from our church is a cute little movie theater. I thought "Wouldn't that be fun to have them watch a movie?!".
It just so happens that I have a Masters Degree in Media and Philanthropy. So i know how to shoot and edit. I made a personal documentary about how my husband and I met - our lovestory. I interviewed our parents, siblings, and friends and had someone else interview us and edited it into a 20 minute film. Everyone walked from the church to the theater. It was a huge success and a very special part of our day. More than that though, it is a wonderful keepsake for my family.
After that, Cool Dog was out there and people thought it was great so I ran with it. We did some rehearsal dinner love stories and birthday slideshows. Becoming a mom opened up a whole new interest in all things babies and kids.
My focus now is on custom video birth announcements and kid videos. I love creating them for people and they are easier to manage during naptime than a full length personal documentary :-)"
