About Susan Saunders, Life Story Legacy Video Biographer at Family Line Video in ChicagoSince 2008, I’ve run Family Line Video, LLC as a true labor of love, personally handling all aspects of Family Documentary production, from filming and editing to interviewing and research, treating each family’s story and artifacts as though they were my own.

~ My Story ~

It wasn’t until I lost my grandparents that I realized my children would never have the chance to know and appreciate them as I had.

In that moment, I saw too how little I knew about my own great grandparents beyond their names and a few bits of questionable information. The few faded photographs we did have, could never reveal the full and significant lives they had led.

About Susan at Family Line Video in ChicagoLike any of us, they had dreams, faced adversity and enjoyed successes. Without their stories, though, we would never know how their experiences shaped who they were and how they impacted on who we are today.

Those stories were now lost forever.

It was then that I understood the importance of capturing a grandparent’s stories. While Ancestry.com may help you discover your history, a grandparent’s memories will bring it to life in a very personalize way.

My vision became to create a visually captivating memoir that not only captured a grandparent as they recounted their life story and family history but also wove in family photos as a way to bring their memories to life.

Family Documentary Packages by Family Line VideoWhether this ‘Moving Portrait’, a Family Documentary Video, focused on an individual, a couple, or an entire family, the end result would truly be a family heirloom.

In 2008, my vision became a reality with Family Line Video, LLC.

… I write now to say how deeply impressed I was by our gorgeous family portrait you produced. Its editing, organization, technical quality, its consistent thoughtfulness made it FLV FCP Phototruly first-rate, and it brought our parents’ and grandparents’ summertime experiences alive in ways I would have thought inconceivable. Incredible work!” S.Z.
