Mom and MeLife is Precious

It's natural to celebrate the arrival of a new child—their story has just begun. But as we age we become wrapped up in our day-to-day activities and sometimes forget it's still important to honor and celebrate our lives and our stories along the way. Our stories define our uniqueness. They connect us to one another. When we share our stories we honor our own life and the lives  of our family and loved ones.

Heritage Biographies was created to help you celebrate, honor and preserve your stories. We use the latest digital technology to help you create a lasting legacy so that future generations will know you in your own words, images, and unique voice.

Are you so wrapped up in the day-to-day activities of life that you don't take the time to reflect on your life story? Don't think it's important to preserve the “little details” of your life? I hope to change your mind, and  help you understand that  taking the time to remember and record your life stories you will not only experience great personal satisfaction but will leave an enduring legacy for your family.

My Story

My mother (age three in the far right photo) had only a few stories to pass on, probably because she never had the time to reflect on her life and how she was living it. She was too busy being a single mother raising three daughters alone.

When she died, I looked in vain for something she had written down of her thoughts and feelings about her life. All I found were some scribbled notes about a patient she had cared for as a nurse. How wonderful it would have been to discover that she had some of her stories written or recorded about her life so my sisters and I would never forget those details or the sound of her voice. Will this happen to your children?

Although I had been capturing stories in my career for over 25 years as a photographer, at that moment I realized the importance our family stories and why it's so important to do this work.

Please join me in celebrating life, and make your commitment to spend time honoring your life for yourself and the future benefit of those you love. It's your priceless, unique legacy!
