We live in a world where care-taking for those who don't “contribute to society” [babies and elders] is often viewed as a burden. The relationship between my baby and elderly grandfather - considered by many to be some of the most weak and vulnerable beings in society - confirmed how important their existence is. Their purpose is to love and be loved.

The way my grandfather’s face lit up when he saw my baby is something I’ll never have to worry about forgetting because it’s been captured through photography. I didn’t have any current high quality photos of my grandfather and baby, so I’m grateful we did a Preserving Legacy photoshoot when we did so my family could share these valuable photos at his funeral.

Working alongside Augusta with my Mother was a very unique experience. She immediately felt like part of our family! I even think my Mom & Augusta might catch up over tea one day, they got along so well! I of course will stay connected with Augusta, as she is a beacon of light & healing in our world.

I would highly recommend Augusta's Preserving Legacy service to anyone who would like to capture the life and stories of a loved one, particularly if they are older or facing illness before it’s too late.

With Gratitude,

My 87-year old father and I spent a wonderful afternoon doing a photo shoot with Augusta. Her questions were thoughtful; never intrusive, and we were so at ease with her that much of the time we forgot she had a camera.

The resulting photos are both sweet and profound. My family and I will cherish these images for years to come.
