"The days are long but the years are short" Gretchen Rubin.
You will never have this day with your children again. Tomorrow they'll be a little older than they were today. This day is a gift. Just breathe, notice their faces and little feet. Pay attention. Enjoy today, it will be over before you know it.
Everyone photographs the important events like Birthdays, Christmas and holidays however photographing your everyday life is just as significant. Everyday normal activities for families once photographed become time capsules in your family's life.
Documenting little details of your everyday routines becomes a celebration of who you are. These photographs represent a snapshot in time, the story of your life and serve as a piece of your family's history.
I'm a Mum of a teenager and a tween and I love stories. Having a camera in my hand has been an amazing way to document and preserve my own family history, the heartfelt, messy, real stories of our life together. I love to capture real life moments that celebrates the "Gift of the Ordinary Day". Capturing authentic, heartfelt and timeless memories.
The greatest legacy we can leave our children are portraits of the beautiful life we have lived with them.
It is said that whilst this generation of children are the most photographed, they will not have any photos to look back on. There is a false sense of security that every moment of their lives are being documented. In reality, there are lots of digital photos that are buried in phones and computers that you may not have access to in years to come as technology changes. I'm passionate about offering beautiful Handcrafted Heirloom Albums and prints so that your family memories can be passed down from generation to generation.
Investing in a custom Album of your "Day in the Life" session will be far more valuable than any amount of digital files on a USB lying around in a drawer somewhere. Having an Album to touch and hold and to be able to show your family and friends is a treasured gift for your entire family.
This Flush Mount Album features a genuine leather cover in dark navy. The thick pages have a lustre finish to them which showcase the beautiful colours in all of the images. Each page has a protective coating which protects the pages against spills and stains. The Flush Mount Album is an 8x8" layflat design which gives stunning panoramic views of your images across the entire book when opened.
Imagine having a little stack of these annual "Day in the Life" Albums lined up on your bookshelf year after year show casing your family life verses images sitting on a USB or your computer that may or may not crash at some stage. Technology is great however it's not without it's challenges and failures.
Bring back the art of sitting around with your family looking through the family albums and laughing at your seemingly modern clothing of today that in 15 years time might seem old fashioned to your kids. Photographs are meant to be treasured, touched and relived and not through a computer screen. Printing gives life to your pictures and this custom made Heirloom Album will stand the test of time and serve as a piece of your family's history.
Memories are timeless treasures of the heart and every picture tells a story. Make sure you can pass on your family stories in a beautiful legacy album.
