When All You Have Left Are Pix: Part 1

Flora Rose was my grandmother on my mother’s side... and this is the only photograph I have of her. My mother has three more. My aunt may have a handful. Born Apr 1, 1919, she was just 55 when she passed - the same age I'll be this year. I wish we had more pictures of her throughout her short time on this planet....

When someone important in your life passes, where is the first place you turn? Pictures and stories. Some of her pix were lost in a fire, but I also know there weren't a lot taken. I've heard some stories; I wish I had photographs to go with them. 

You’ll be looking for a printed 8x10 to frame and display at the service… and printed pix to share among family and friends (or in the instance of a global pandemic, to share online).

Because of instances like fire or pandemics, or just deterioration because we didn’t know how to keep our prints safe, I am thankful for (and offer) digital options… even though nothing beats a quality print.

What legacy are you leaving behind for those who love you? Do you exist in photos? You really should - as you are, right this moment. 


Ready for some great photographs? Let’s get to know each other over coffee (or smoothies… or milkshakes…), and talk about celebrating your life’s true beauty in images you love. You can reach me at [email protected] or (434) 226-0365. You can also schedule a consultation at https://calendly.com/maggietakespix; pick a time convenient for you, and let me know where you'd like to meet!

My Promise: Together, we will create amazing photos you’ll want to share. How do you want to be photographed?
