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).

Thoughts on capturing life as it (really) is

Two years ago, Trish came over to our home and photographed our evening routine. I fell in love with the frames she captured, which were all the more special as we were only two months away from welcoming Edward into our lives. A month ago, Trish came over once more, this time to photograph our morning routine. And of course, there were six of us this time round - which made it all the more fun and exciting, albeit a touch more chaotic. The contrast and similarities between the two sets of photographs tug at my heart ever so slightly, and I will forever be thankful to Trish for  creating a time capsule of sorts for our family.

As I look at the photos, what hits home the most is how honest and true the photos are. My hair is how I always wear it; Rick is in his actual pyjamas; I'm wearing the same clothes I was wearing that entire week; Rick is making the same pancakes he makes every week; the boys are each doing their own thing; and I'm feeding Bear in the same awkward position I always do. In fact, I remember thinking after the session that perhaps I should've done my hair properly, or that I should've sat differently (read: more ladylike) in the feeding chair, or that we should've bought some flowers for the house, or that I should've 'styled up' our breakfast table a little. But then I reminded myself that this is what memory keeping is actually about. Documenting life as it is. As it really is. 

And as for Trish - well, she just has this ridiculous gift for transforming the most ordinary and mundane of moments into something heartachingly beautiful.

I look forward to sharing the photos with you guys next week. In the meantime, I hope you all have the most wonderful weekend!
