Legacy Portrait Films grows out of Ken’s long time love for film portraiture. He’s delighted to say that he recently shot a Legacy Portrait Film of his 85 year-old mother Pearl.

Betsy’s love affair with film began when she first set foot in a movie theater and the first image came on the screen. That love has grown and taken form in many different ways over her producing career. The latest one is Legacy Portrait Films.

Her work in film and television has been incredibly varied over the past 25 years.  Projects include award winning commercials, movies for television, music videos, a National Geographic documentary, and award winning historical dramas for Hallmark and Discovery channels. Betsy is also a partner with Ken Ross and Louis Galdieri in Films for Non-Profits.

Betsy was inspired to create Legacy Portrait Films by the loss of her parents and the missed opportunity to have put them on film.
