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 fatherhood: On having a little girl


Thoughts on fatherhood - A blog series by Joel Chong and Richard Mason for LIFE:CAPTURED Inc (The modern school of memory keeping)

| Written by Joel |

It saddens me to think there are cultures that would think a girl's life is worth any less that a boy's.

Every culture has its blind spot, I guess, but ever since Naomi entered our lives, it's even more bewildering to me how families in those societies are missing out.

She may only be seven months, but I'm already enjoying her personality – or dare I generalise it, her female personality. My boys love to laugh and crack silly jokes, and they thrive on the adrenalin of taking risks. But she...she's quietly personable, aware of people in her presence, and happy to connect over a glance or a gentle smile. 

And whenever we connect, I can see her heart smiling through her eyes.

In our own culture, our blind spot is how we let our girls perceive beauty and acceptance. In an increasingly visual society, we place so much – too much – self-worth on our appearance.

I hope that Naomi will never be too camera-shy or too ashamed to be in our photographs. And as parents who are documenting the story of her childhood, I hope our photos do more than capture her external beauty. I hope our photos capture the beauty of her character.

And I hope that, as her dad, I never lose my connection with her. 

I hope to always see her heart smiling through her eyes.
