Hello everyone! I hope you had a splendid fourth of July weekend. I hope you’ve had a chance to read through Issue 011: A Stroll On Memory Lane. It was so much fun to look back on the weddings of readers’ parents and grandparents.
I wanted to share with you a wonderfully personal photoshoot by Megan of Glamour and Grace.
From Megan: “For those who don’t know me personally, my Nana passed away a few months ago. I will admit I have been having a hard time with it. I took this chance at photographing something as a way to memorialize her (and sort of therapy for myself). Everything in the shoot was hers, now mine. From the table cloth and china, to the old postcards and letters (even one from 1903 written to her mother from my great grandfather all in German). The butterfly pin was a trademark of hers. There was never a day she didn’t have some sort of bug pinned to her shoulder. I baked cupcakes and wrapped them in pieces of maps to represent her love of travel. Her and my granddad were missionaries that served in Paris, Greece, and Norway among traveling to many other places.”
What a sweet way to memorialize and be inspired by our loved ones.
