When I was young, my family would get all dressed up and go to Olan Mills. We didn’t have a lot, but we did have pictures! One of my favorite wall portraits of us is one of me around five years old, my mom, my sister, and my grandma. Our hairstyles and clothes definitely show the time period, but more than that - you can see how much we all look alike and are connected. Every time that photo surfaces, we all have a good laugh, and I feel so loved and like I belong.

 

I've loved taking photos since I was in middle school, and I think my passion for capturing memories stemmed from looking through photo albums with my family. My grandma and mom would go through and explain who everyone was and what was going on…we all love to reminisce and talk about family vacations, holidays, family members who are no longer with us. There is nothing like the feel of those old albums as we turn each page…the smell of the old age and memories comes wafting out, and my heart is full. I can’t count how many times we have gone through those albums, and nothing compares to holding a special image in your hand.

One of my most treasured possessions comes from one of those old albums, and it is a portrait that my mom’s first husband captured. He was a professional photographer, and it is the most beautiful and authentic image of my mom, my grandma, and my great grandma. I just love seeing the history of our family in all of their faces and think the story it tells is so beautiful. Jerry Seinfeld once said that our stuff will all leave our home one day in garbage bags, and the only thing the kids will fight over is artwork and photos. I want my kiddos to have all the special memories that they can hold when that time comes!

My youngest is already four years old, and before long, she won’t be wearing tutus and tiaras to the grocery store. This is a precious time that I don’t want to ever forget. I want to capture these memories and hold onto them, so she can share with her children and grandchildren one day as they laugh and turn the pages of their own albums.

 

I promise you that the heirloom artwork we create together will stand the test of time and is worthy of your time and financial investment. The history of our little town inspires me to preserve history while investing in the future, and the boutique model is how I plan to honor that tradition in our community.
