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).

Let's talk: My memory keeping projects for 2016

Let's talk: My memory keeping projects for 2016 - A blog post by Rhonda Mason for LIFE:CAPTURED Inc (The modern school of memory keeping)

| Written by Ronnie |

In the middle of last year, I shared my personal projects list here on the blog so I thought I'd do that again at the beginning of the new year. You'll notice that some of the projects have been carried over from last year, which I'm perfectly okay with. By the same token, you'll also notice that I did manage to complete about half of the projects on the list, which I'm over-the-moon about. Note that these memory keeping projects are in addition to our family's life album, which I will be updating on a weekly basis, as well as our boys' life albums, which will be updated on a monthly basis.

As many of you will know by now, I like organising my projects in this way to keep myself focused and on track. This monthly list format is also extremely flexible as it allows me to easily 'carry forward' any projects that I haven't completed in a particular month. The key, for me, is to always gave a game plan so to speak, and this is it. At any time, I simply have to glance at this list and I can see immediately the big picture of what I'm trying to achieve as well as the next project I need to tackle.

Also, as I've mentioned in the past, I like to group my memory keeping projects into categories, as this means I don't have to keep jumping between different headspaces - it's always much more efficient to complete five similar photo books at the same time, rather than tackling each individually over different periods of time. Using the same templates and designs as much as possible means that I don't have to keep re-inventing the wheel, thus allowing me to be even more efficient and streamlined in my workflow.

Lastly, you'll recognise many of these projects from my memory keeping framework which I plan to write more about this year.
