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).

Life is a hustle. No matter what stage of life we're at, our days often seem to just fill up with endless tasks and activity. Something that I've learnt in my years of journaling and memory keeping is that in order to preserve our story, we actually need to slow down enough to do so.

We need to slow down enough to block out distractions.

We need to slow down enough to activate our memory.

We need to slow down enough to recall and remember details.

We need to slow down enough to translate details into words.

We need to slow down enough to write those words down.

I'll be the first to admit that slowing down is not something that comes naturally to me. It's something that I have to work at, and in my personal experience, it takes effort, discipline, and determination. 

Slowing down, for me, involves setting aside my tasks, clearing my mind, saying no Facebook and Instagram, reminding myself why I believe in documenting our story, remembering how valuable it will be for the boys, and being prepared to spend a significant chunk of time sitting down and perhaps ending up with not as many words as I'd hoped. 

Western society teaches us that we need to hustle in order to achieve our goals and our dreams. 

Today, on this lovely Autumn day, I am urging you to slow down so that you can preserve your story.

Don't let the hustle of life rob you of yours.
