As I walked my children home from school, I watched their hands naturally interlock.  I listened to their chit chat and almost instinctively pulled out my phone to capture one of the many everyday moments that weave together our little family story.

It’s amazing that we have the means to instantly document these snapshots in time.   Because it was just yesterday that baby Lucia danced under the cherry blossom tree – and just yesterday that we walked home from Nursery School and First Grade.

How is that possible?

As cliché as it sounds – childhood is fleeting –  and seasons indeed change in the blink of an eye. So I photograph and record it with passion and fury because these small vignettes have tangible ties to my past – and the power to take us all back, momentarily.

In a sea of Mother’s Day gift pitches, one stood out, because I have more videos on my phone, various devices and external hard drives than I know what to do with.  I long to learn to piece together footage.

  1. Great idea to keep and treasure these memories forever!

  2. What a great idea! I have LOTS of short videos collected on my phone and I would love to have them all in one place for easy viewing!

  3. Your Facebook post lead me here. I love that photo of you in the rocking chair. I really love this idea. I have videos everywhere and no way of creating something nice on my own.

  4. Now, this is a fantastic idea! And a great price, too!

  5. What a great way to preserve your memories all in one place!

  6. I have also wanted to learn how to piece my short videos together. What a great service!

  7. So adorable! I have countless short clips of my kiddos on my phone. I never wanted to get rid of them but its slowing up my phone so this would help, thank you!

  8. I love when my 3 and 6 year old naturally hold hands when they’re walking side by side…very cute pictures!

  9. This is a beautiful idea. I love creating slideshows for my friends and family. It’s a treasured keepsake that they will have for a lifetime.

  10. Aww, look at her so tiny and cute! Childhood really is fleeting, and I love the pic of your little ones holding hands. 🙂

  11. I almost shed a tear when you wrote that your kids hands just “naturally interlocked!!!” That’s SO sweet!!! And by the way, I JUST decided the other day that I absolutely love cherry blossom trees!!! (Probably because I saw so may of them in New York!)
