Last month I spent a few days deep in the South with my grandmother who I hadn’t seen in almost a decade. Shameful as a granddaughter, I know. But it was amazing reconnecting and spending such quality time getting to know a woman who’s Lived so much.
We spent hours going through her stacks and stacks of pictures, organizing, reminiscing and reliving memories once made. The understanding of who my grandmother is, was told in thousands of ways that her words could never say. The photographs did all the talking.
Over three days we got through boxes of photos, but I left the sweet woman with hours and years still to sort through on her own. I came home motivated to make sure that mess isn’t made for my mother, or yours, or my clients who are mothers, friends or anyone possible who’s willing to let me help. I don’t want anyone to have to wait to relive their lifetime memories stuck in a chair with a broken hip mending later in life. The time [to organize and] enjoy the memories is now.
Tomorrow is May Day, and in honor of spring and freshness and helping others, Lovato Images will be offering an amazing special on our albums. We’ll get all your favorite images from that portrait session or event all tied up with a little May Day bow. Check back for details.
