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).

Happy weekend: Funny outtakes, image sequencing, and all that jazz

Happy Weekend - A blog post by Rhonda Mason for Preserve Your Story (The official blog of LIFE:CAPTURED Inc)

Written by Ronnie |

Last week, I posted the photo above on Instagram and wanted to share it again here on the blog along with some outtakes. Three things are worth noting here: First, I need to start remembering to let Bear out of the pram! Second of all, whilst it can take up to thirty or forty goes to get that 'perfect' shot for Instagram, all the frames leading up to it are just as precious - I particularly love seeing the change in the boys' expressions and it's always amusing to see the way they warm up and get into the spirit of things. And lastly, these type of shots make awesome image sequences for scrapbooks, life albums, and photo books. I particularly love throwing my favourite dozen or so shots into a photo collage like this one or this one. So the next time you try to capture a similar family portrait (perhaps with a tripod and timer, so that you can be in it too!) don't discard the outtakes. Instead, make sure you include them somewhere in your family archives so that you can all look back one day and have a chuckle together!

Anyway, these last two weeks have been pretty full on for us. We announced the winner of our $750 giveaway (congratulations Hayley!) and I wrapped up my first two masterclasses with the most lovely ladies. My biggest boy also turned six, which means that I once again attempted to bake a cake and I can no longer call him my baby (even though he'll always be my baby, and he knows it). Yes, life has been hectic and exhausting, but it has also been wonderful with so much to give thanks for. 

Here's wishing you all a fabulous weekend, my dear friends! 

What have you got planned for the week ahead?
