~~~~Why "Heritage Keepers"?~~~~ I believe that "everyone has a story to tell." After losing my mother to a debilitating disease, which took her mind and then her body, I realized that our family not only lost our mother but also most of our family stories, history and heritage. With a passion for photography and a heart for people, it was a natural step for me to create Heritage Keepers Photography. Life moves too fast to let it go by without capturing those precious moments and stories that make up a lifetime. Using a combination of video, audio and still photography, I help preserve the stories, memories and history of family heritage, creating a wonderful, meaningful keepsake that can be handed down to future generations. I also offer a wide range of photographic services, including portraits, senior pictures, weddings and special events as well as photographic art. Moved by the beauty and wonder of Gods creations, whether nature, wildlife, or people, I strive to capture the visions I see and share them with others. Currently a selection of my photographs are being shown and sold in two Virginia art galleries; the "Berryville Main Street Fire House Gallery and Shop" and the Sperryville "Glassworks Gallery". They are also available here on my website.  

So why Heritage Keepers? 

Because I believe "everyone has as story to tell...

 

After losing my mother to the debilitating disease of Lewy Bodies, which stole her mind and her body, I realized that not only did we lose our mother, but we also lost all of our family stories and history from her side of our family.  They all went with her. 

It occurred to me how wonderful it would be if I could hear her talking, her laughing, and see her face... telling stories and just being her... the idea brought tears to my eyes.

Having a passion for photography and a heart for people, it was a natural step for me to create Heritage Keepers Photography.  Life moves too fast to let it go by without capturing those precious moments and stories that make up a lifetime... once they are gone, they are gone forever... 

So I developed the Heritage Keepers Video.  Using a combination of audio, video and still photography, I create a personalized keepsake for you and your loved ones.  Preserving your personal & family history, stories & memories that can be handed down to future generations.  A special and meaningful gift for loved ones, a truly unique gift of family from the heart. 

Interviews can be one person, several people, a whole group, a homestead or even a buisness.  I will walk you through the process and supply you with an outline. The outline will include ideas to talk about, suggested clothing and things to gather.  Contact me to discuss your project. 

 

Years from now who will know your family story?... Give the Gift of Heritage
