IF YOU COULD, YOU'D GO BACK

There are memories from your childhood that feel oh so good, and if you could, you’d go back to experience them again in a heartbeat. OR at least through a photograph, but the brutal truth is that time marches on and you don’t have those photos.

You don’t want the same for your children and you know you ought to have this time recorded.

photos for the future

They say a mother plays a role in her child’s personal story. As a mom, I totally agree.

So here’s to:

  • WALKING THROUGH THE HALLS WITH WALLS FILLED WITH MEMORIES,
  • OPENING UP THE FAMILY ALBUMS AND REMINISCING ON A REGULAR BASIS,
  • AND EMPOWERING OUR CHILDREN WITH THE GIFT OF PHOTOS FROM THIER CHILDHOOD.

“When children grow up surrounded by photographs, it gives them a richer understanding of where they come from, which helps with confidence.

Until recently, people often thought of photographs as almost trivial, but actually they are an incredibly important way of connecting with our sense of self, with each other and with times gone by.”

Head of School and Dean of Psychological Sciences at the University of Manchester

Because you grew up without photos from your childhood.

You’ve experienced loss and regret of not having more photographs.

Maybe you have experienced a catastrophe or worry about the possibility of losing your memories and history in the event of one and what to be prepared.

I’M HERE TO HELP YOU MAKE SURE THE PEOPLE + PLACES YOU CARE ABOUT AREN’T FORGOTTEN. WHY?

Some of my favorite memories as a child were baking chocolate chip cookies from scratch with my mama, hiking around the little log cabin we lived in (with a dozen cats in tow), and going out in the woods to cut and drag our Christmas tree home.

The thing is: I don’t have pictures of these memories.

YOU KNOW WHAT THOSE STORIES ARE FOR YOURSELF.

From your childhood, to falling in love, to parenthood and the family that you grow into together. I have a feeling you’re already thinking of some things but have never thought to have them recorded.

INVESTMENT

They say a mother plays a role in her child’s personal story. As a mom, I totally agree. Let’s make worthy investments.

GIVING

The Legacy Project is a scholarship for families who are overtaxed, underrepresented, or have a compelling story to tell.
