There are many hats I wear throughout the week, but I always am reminded of the importance of memories. Making memories, creating lasting legacies, and making the world a better place by inspiring you and others to find your inner creative spirit. Everyone knows family memories are important, but sometimes remembering to enjoy and document them is the tough part. Life just moves so quickly! Whether it’s capturing “snapshot moments” or mentally storing priceless memories we’ll remember fondly years from now, join me as I work on living fully in the present instead of just behind the camera. Because, let’s face it, life happens even when you don’t have a camera at the ready. — Betsy
