“As I began contemplating downsizing and simplifying, I got stuck about what to do with my “stuff.” Years had been spent on “the hunt” to complete some of my most cherished collections: Depression glass, buttons, piggy banks, Hall pottery, lady head vases, jewelry, and vintage kitchen utensils, to name some of my favorites.
Kate came to my home, photographed my collections with thoughtfulness and respect and recorded my stories about each piece. Her insightful questions added to the quality and depth to my project.
I am in awe of the final result! I now have professional photographs of my cherished possessions in an amazing book with a narrative, in my own words. Now I can “let go” of these collections but share the memory of them with family and friends.
Ease your concerns of how to manage your personal collections and heirlooms. Thumbprint to the rescue.”
“This is interesting and timely. With an uncertain present and future, people are no doubt putting a premium on documenting/appreciating what came before. So many sudden losses this past year without being able to say goodbye or regretting not having a conversation that could have been had. The whole issue of mortality has entered the popular consciousness akin to a time of war. My friend Lynn has a bunch of letters her Dad sent her mother from Europe during WWII–her most precious possession.”
“I have never thought that putting names of one’s feelings and voicing it can be so powerful. When I listened to myself talking with you, I realized how far we came from and it makes me proud and very grateful for the people who have been involved with our resettlement process.”
“You are such a delightful person to be around and speak with! You truly made the entire process so relaxed and easy. I appreciate your time and professionalism!”
