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).

The heart of memory keeping: Don't procrastinate

Procrastinating is something we are all guilty of, I'm sure. 

In fact, it's something I've struggled with for my entire adult life.

These days, it's easier than ever to procrastinate. 

With the overwhelming abundance of distractions on social media accessible from the palm of our hands, procrastinating is as easy as two swipes and a tap. 

And while it's one thing to set aside time to seek inspiration on social media, it's a totally different thing to procrastinate on social media when you've actually set aside time to do something else.

The former is all well and good. The latter is, quite literally, a waste of time.

Time that is precious and which you can never actually get back.

When it comes to memory keeping, the problem with procrastinating is that the more you do it, the bigger your 'backlog' becomes. And the bigger it becomes, the more you're likely to procrastinate.

And just like that, a vicious cycle begins.

Before you know it, every time you sit down, you find yourself mindlessly scrolling through Facebook or Instagram or Pinterest instead of sorting through your photos and turning those precious memories into the beautiful photo books that you've been dreaming about for the last year.

And while it may seem harmless at the time, in reality, every time we procrastinate, we are robbing ourselves and our families of something very precious.

Is there a remedy for this? I think so.

For starters, there are simple, practical things that we can all put into practice to avoid distractions

But more than that, I think the key is to keep reminding ourselves of the tangible keepsakes that we want to be creating for ourselves and our families. 

Whether it's a baby journal, or a family yearbook, or a holiday album, or a scrapbook for one of your children, whatever it is that you've been wanting to make, keep your mind focused on that.

In other words, stop consuming what others have done (or are doing), and instead, start creating something that is precious for your and your family. 

So friends, today I urge you (and myself) to stop procrastinating.

Stop wasting time, and start creating something that will last for generations to come.
