‘Look to this day’ – a family portrait
Shaping a text that reflects an established family.
As every owner of an incomplete photograph album knows, capturing a whole family in time isn’t easy. Everyone is everywhere, increasingly so as they get older in the modern world and everything seems to be in a state of constant flux. Finding your centre in such a day-to-day reality can seem unlikely. I can help with a family portrait…in words.
A ‘Look to this day’ commission can create very special text that captures all your family means, how important it is and everything you want them to be sure of. Hear through my testimonials how much the process has meant to so many other clients.
I might ask about various aspects of family life, from a range of perspectives. We may involve a select few people in our information gathering or a wider group of contributors. We might take a range of different structural approaches with our text, depending on the nature of your story so far as a family. There are so many individual ways we can make this a perfect fit.
The final edit may make you all laugh, it may reassure, it may make you think, but one thing is certain, it will act as a touchstone you will cherish and return to, time and again. Imagine sharing yours with your family, the text combined with family photographs, or framed on the kitchen wall for all to see, reaffirming your bond in the process.
The ‘Look to this day’ commission could appeal to families with children of any age and/or with family members near or far.
‘Look to this day, for it is life, the very life of life.’
