A Family Portrait IN MALIBU
(turn on volume)

…Even in this era where we can all take quick videos of our kids, it’s hard to make the movie in your head come to life on the screen!

All too often, that perfect moment is gone by the time you’ve whipped your cellphone out and opened the camera.

Even if you can make it, the kids start hamming it up for the camera, and refusing to listen to your wishful guidance…

…And that’s if you can even keep your camera pointed at them and in focus without accidentally jerking the camera all over the place as you zoom in!

All you want is a record of your kid as he really is without all the hassle, frustration, and fuss that makes your child act unnaturally – and leaves you stressed out!

Create Artistic Home Movies of Your Child – The Easy Way!

Hi there! I’m Amanda Hankerson, a mom and award-winning photographer and filmmaker who specializes in artistic video family and child portraits in Los Angeles and Minneapolis.

Professional family film portraits are an emerging new trend in the United States as parents like you seek out a fuller and more detailed record of this part of life.

If you’re one of them, then you’ve come to the right place!

I am one of the most experienced artistic moving portrait videographers in Los Angeles today, and I can help you to bring the artistic vision in your head to life!

As a mom, I know just how important capturing childhood memories is – and because I work with real people, I know how to make everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera lens.

More than making sure everyone looks good and feels natural, you’ll also capture the story of your family as it is today with an artistic element that goes beyond point and shoot home movies thanks to expert editing and production.

Together with my training and experience in fine art, advertising, and antique videography, I can deliver a film that captures your family’s essence… forever.

They may grow up faster than you ever expected – but with professional short film portraits, that moment in time will never be lost.

Videos portraits provide people with a beeline to the past while connecting generations of your family close together.

Invest in tomorrow’s memories today – and show your grandchildren just what their parents were like when they weren’t grown-ups!
