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).

Conversations - A blog series by Rhonda Mason for LIFE:CAPTURED Inc (The modern school of memory keeping)

It is Friday afternoon. Jamie and Bear are up from their naps, and we've just loaded The Sound of Music into the DVD player.

Me: "Aren't the mountains beautiful, Jamie?"
Jamie: "Yes! I want to live in the Doe Ray Me movie."

An hour or so later, Angus and Pete have joined us. Onscreen, the Captain is rebuking Maria for dressing his children in curtain rags. 

Angus: "I wouldn't want to be his son!" 

* * *

It is Wednesday. Pete and I are at 'big school' to buy his uniform and school bag for the new year. Pete stands quietly next to me as I make puchase decisions. Suddenly, he speaks up ever so softly.

Pete: "Don't forget my sports uniform, mummy..."

* * *

It is Monday lunchtime. The big boys have just come home from a trip to the hairdresser's with Rick.

Angus: "Now my hair looks like the person who gave me the haircut."

* * *

It is Thursday morning. I've just stepped back inside the house from the patio.

Jamie (who has been watching me): "You did a funny thing. You were going to take your thongs off and come inside. Then you put your thongs back on and did some more things. You put the broom away then you got it again and did some sweeping. Then you took your thongs off and came inside."

Later that same day…

Jamie: "Why does someone dressed up want to go down a chimney?"

* * *

It is Sunday evening. Grandpa and Nan are here.  The boys have just stepped out of the shower and I can hear Pete speaking softly with Pa.

Pete: "When I wash my hair, the water dribbles down my face like tears." 

* * *

It is Saturday. I've just asked the boys what they would like for Christmas.

Angus: "I want a new nose."
Jamie: "Then you'll have to chop off yours. That will hurt!"

* * *

It is Wednesday afternoon. Angus has just come home from school.

Angus: "Mum, have you been in your pyjamas all day?"

* * *

It is Thursday evening. We are all in the car, on our way to dinner.

Rick: "Landrovers don't leak oil."
Jamie: "But ours does."
Rick: "One of us must be mistaken."
Jamie: "You are mistaken, daddy."
