GUEST BLOGGER - Mandy Elliott - Record Life Blog

Good afternoon everyone today I have something special for you all. Today I have a guest right here on my blog and today is Mandy from Record Life Blog. Mandy is a inspiration to me as we both love photography and love documenting our lives.

Mandy Elliott -
I feel like every blog post I write, I start by sharing how important it is to record life and document every day.  Its because I'm passionate about memory keeping, I just can't help myself. I want everyone to share my passion and want to document their lives too.
I have been a little bit of a "shutterbug" my entire life. After I bought my first professional grade camera in 2009, I began taking photography classes and later opened my own professional portrait business.  Because of this love for pictures, I've easily documented much of my life through the viewfinder of my Nikon camera.
By embracing new technology, I've found it easy to continue documenting life using my iPhone as well. I can't even begin to count how many photos I take each month.
This year however, I decided it wasn't enough to simply take pictures and add them into my Project Life album. This year, I set a New Year's resolution to journal in addition to my photo taking.
I've set out to tell my story too.  I want to document my every day with words, not just with photos.  My memory keeping process is always evolving and this year, I've adopted a fresh, clean style that will allow me to focus my Project Life albums on our real life and what happens daily.
After all, life's little moments MATTER. Life's circumstances and decisions affect us, shape us into who we are and show us what we value in life, creating the legacy we leave behind.

Best Wishes,
Mandy Elliott
