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).

Friday afternoon. I am downstairs in the family room working on my MacBook Air.

Jamie: "Why do you have your little 'puter?"

* * *

It is morning, and Rick is about to do school drop-off.

I say goodbye to Angus and Jamie in the garage.

Jamie:  "Mummy, have a safe day. Don't touch my things."

* * *

It is Saturday evening, and Jamie keeps refusing his dinner. Rick puts his head in his hands, and sighs. Pete reaches over to pat him on the shoulder.

Pete: "Don't feel bad, daddy"

* * *

It is Wednesday morning, and we are in the car. I am dropping off the middle boys to preschool.

Pete: “I saw a horse!"
Jamie: “Good for you!”
Me: “Where did you learn to say that?”
Jamie: “From daddy.”
Me: “Hahahaha, you make me laugh out loud.”
Jamie: “Good for you!”

* * *

It is Friday evening, and we are having dinner.

Jamie: “There's a hair in my milk.”
Me: “It's not a hair, it's just a crumb.”
Jamie: “Its not a crumb. It's long and it's brown. It's a hair. It's not a crumb.”

* * *

It is Thursday, and it is Rick's day off. We are at our favourite cafe with the younger two boys. As a special treat, we have ordered pancakes for breakfast. Jamie takes his first bite.

Jamie: "These are much better than your pancakes, Daddy."

* * *

Sunday afternoon in the car. I have just been out to lunch with Angus, and we are on our way home.

Angus: "Will you stay in the right lane this time?"

Later that same day:

Angus: "What if cows' udders gave flavoured milkshakes?"

* * *

It is Friday night, and we are out for dinner.

As we walk towards the restaurant, I mention to Pete and Angus that one day I will grow smaller and they will keep growing taller and therefore be bigger than me.

Pete: "Mummy, I don't want you to grow down." 

* * *

It is Saturday morning.

We are exploring a new bush track near Balgowlah. Jamie and I are walking together.

Jamie: "Somebody needs to mow here."

* * *

Monday afternoon. Pete is pretending to be upset with me about something.

Pete: "Mummy, I will put you in the naughty garage for ninety years."
Mummy: "If you do that, I will probably die in the garage."
Pete: "Oh…. how about thirty years, then?

* * *

Saturday evening.

The six of us are having dinner. There is a discussion about whether or not moths are harmful. 

Angus: "The only way a moth can hurt you is if a bee was riding it."

These boys - they make my heart burst...
