LIFE:CAPTURED began in August 2013 when we held our first full-day workshop at RAW Space in Sydney, Australia. Our mission is to help people document their stories and create tangible keepsakes to be treasured for generations to come. We offer intensive design, photography, and memory keeping workshops, as well as interactive online classes. We are advocates of honest photography, minimalist design, and memory keeping that's simple, beautiful, and tangible. We are the pioneers of the story book, and we offer flexible templates that enable everybody to tell their story. We believe that life is worth remembering and that it is never too early or too late to start documenting yours. LIFE:CAPTURED was founded by Rhonda Mason (of the Pink Ronnie blog) and Trish Chong (of Tealily Photography).

Ten on ten: Kangaroo Valley


| Written by Trish |

We decided we wanted a little baby moon, just the two of us. As the weeks flew by and ‘busyness’ kept winning over, I impulsed booked this beautiful little cottage in the Kangaroo Valley and declared the kids were coming too.  It was suddenly all too real that our family of four would soon become five and I wanted to savour these last few weeks while we could.

Armed with lots of warm gear just in case, we took the scenic route to Kangaroo Valley (via the Berry donut van) and settled in against the cozy linens and cushions, a little more kids tv than would otherwise be permissible, and a chilly trek out to score some delicious pies for dinner.  The light and textures through the cottage had me all snap happy, and a warming fire to end the night complete with hot milk and toasted marshmallows sealed our little trip perfectly.  

These photos were all snapped on film, a medium I love when I just want to breathe in, enjoy, and see what’s in front of me with a set of different eyes. Film also means that the camera is put down when the natural light fades, allowing me to embrace the scene before me with nothing in between.
