Childhood Moments are Glimpses of Hidden Discovery

What was the most happiest moments in your childhood?

Or … How did it feel to see your child build lego or just talk about his or her feelings?

Better yet, did it make you cry? I cry everytime I see my children happy and enjoying themselves, especially when they share their proudest moments with me.

As much as achievements are precious times, so are little moments of crazy fun.

It is during these moments of fun, they discover their joys which later in life may become their passion.

Sometimes, taking a step back in time and seeing glimpses of these joyful moments show a hidden discovery of growth through time.

A big part of why I record videos and take photos is because they show the story of our life. And within a blink of an eye, our children will forget all of it when they grow older. This includes you and me.

What is your Story?

IMG_4537 (Small)Photos and videos show the beginning of your life. They contain valuable insights into what you contributed in the world, through your growth and experience.

They show you as a hero steering away from conformity to become the person you are today.

Please put sometime aside to preserve your photo memories.
