Tell me more
hey, I'm Kiera
Without help from family members, I could rarely identify the people, places or significance of items saved from generations past.
The ticking of time got louder.
I witnessed loved ones pass away.
Their stories died with them.
Capturing what I remembered, the impact that my loved ones' lives had on mine, and sharing these stories for future generations, developed into my passion.
Then, I became a mom.
Time evaporated before my eyes.
The old adage was true!
The days are long, but the years are short.
That's when the magic would unfold.
Mundane (and often overwhelming) moments now transformed.
Viewed through a lens of hindsight - these seemingly insignificant moments offered a new opportunity for reflection and connection.
The more I noticed them, the more intentional I was about what stories to capture and share.
Using an online photo journaling service called TinyBeans, I collected these stories and shared what I noticed with family across the globe.
Despite being separated by many miles, my family was able to witness our life unfold. Mundane moments turned into "flecks of gold. "
Most days, I'd spend counting down the seconds until bedtime. But then, after the kids were asleep, I'd spend an hour (or two) going through my camera roll.
Despite being separated by many miles, my family was able to witness our life unfold.
Mundane moments turned into "flecks of gold. "
a mantra i live by
because sometimes life just needs a pause button.
It has helped me to find the magic in the mundane.
Witness that joy can co-exist with grief and chaos.
Respect the feelings of overwhelm.
And create a narrative of my own life story.
“Back in the day” there were far fewer photos captured.
The ones captured were usually thoughtfully planned and often documented special occasions. Technology and cost helped limit the amount of images.
Today, on average, 4.7 billion photos are taken daily across the world. Nearly all of these photos are taken on cell phones, sometimes backed up to a cloud service and most are never viewed again.
When we die, these images and stories we took the time to capture die with us.
Unless we DO SOMETHING to make our memories useful to future generations, they decay in the land of forgotten clutter.
