As we age, we accumulate various heirlooms, photos, and other items that remind us of our past and precious memories. The more memories we have, the more items we collect. And overtime, these items can become overwhelming. The point of these photos and heirlooms is to help us remember the good times, but these items are just sitting in a box in the basement or under the bed for many of us.

Mommy. Momma. Mother. Mom. No matter what we call them, there is one thing that rings true: This is a woman who holds a dear and special place in our hearts. Many of our lives are filled with the special moments we shared. Few - if any - will ever love us more than those wonderful women.
Capturing precious moments is vital for remembering precious memories. And what better way to capture special moments than with photography! We may not all realize it, but even our aging loved ones enjoy photographs. This year, our social media manager’s grandfather celebrated his 95th birthday. Throughout the celebrations, she made sure she captured each moment using her iPhone. At the end of the day, her Pop-Pop was thrilled to be able to see the photographs instantly and was eager to share with his friends at the assisted living facility.
Scrapbooking is a great and fun way to document family history, childhood keepsakes, and your most precious memories. The best part about scrapbooking is you don’t necessarily have to be artistic to create one.
