What an amazing treat to work with this gorgeous couple who have been in young love for 61 years. Truly something to aspire to!
Coffee, photography and an author… oh my!
I had the honor of photographing an author who is publishing her very first book today for her bio! I am so excited for her, and for her book release. Check her out!
Years ago I walked into The Department of Assessments and Taxation. A kind lady at the front desk asked me what my business name would be, and while it’s obvious that you would need a business name to register one, I was so excited about registering that I did not put much thought into what I would name it. She told me that the best thing to do then would be to use my name as my business name, and so I did. Helen’s Photography Gallery. I never wanted to use my name for my business name, I just had no idea what I felt fit so perfectly that I would not look back in a couple of years and think – “wow, that was awful”. If not using my name and choosing a name at random, that would have been a very real possibility. After years of doing business, and many times for the same families, I thought how neat it was that these images were like a stitched up quilt made out of a variety of baby clothes or high school signed t-shirts (whatever floats your boat). From photographing individuals while single – dating – engaged – marriage – having and/or adopting children – following milestones etc. Then I sat on the idea for a couple of months and realized that since I did not immediately regret even the idea, it had to be the one. So, welcome to Stitched Memories Photography!
