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 motherhood: Two boys, and a girl

Third trimester. Luke and Jesse now have a lovely double bunk bed taking up a little too much space in their room, yet somehow the purpose of the exercise failed and they both still sleep most nights together with us. Blanket kicking, perpendicular positioning, squeezing me right to the edge or sleeping straight on my face are quite regular features of our nightly slumber. So in short, we haven’t made much progress in accommodating this family of almost-five. Ronnie recommended and kindly gifted me a book on healthy sleep habits; it’s definitely next up on the reading list so there is an action plan - at least in theory.

Through this pregnancy, I’ve often been asked what my thoughts are on having a girl. After deflecting the question for a while (other than ‘yay!’), I realise I don't have any feelings this way or that, and that our hopes and dreams for her are the same ones we wish for her big brothers. To know Love in all it’s fullness, to find a place of peace and contentment in all that God apportions, and for us as parents to be able to equip each of them with all they need to follow their heart and pursue this adventure of life in a way everlasting.  

Everyday I realise more and more the gravity of the roles we have been bestowed as parents.  I will be the first to admit that I feel like I fail so very often, and I can only pray for wisdom and grace to set foot on the right path so little footsteps may confidently follow in the example set before them.
