Dear Families,

I lost my mom to breast cancer when I was 13 years old. At the time, I had no idea how much I would come to treasure the fading 1980s photographs that remained. But, when I became the mother to two beautiful boys? That’s when the importance of documenting this fleeting time became crystal clear.

You’ve done your best to document and record but I’m going to bet that all of those video clips are sitting (unedited) on a computer, “the cloud” or your phone … waiting for that magical moment when you have the time (and skill) to finally do something with them. Enter revel+spark.

As a professional filmmaker, journalist and mom, I want to transform your videos into a treasured keepsake.

I founded revel+spark in 2015 to preserve the most tender moments we hold dear. We’re a team of professional editors ready to transform your videos into a treasured keepsake. The best part? You will create a gift for your child — something that he or she can return to again and again —  a curated window into childhood and family.

It would be an honor for our team to craft your story and preserve this special time with you,

Ps. Don’t just take our word for it! Check out our testimonials.
