HEIRLOOMS: HANDCRAFTED ALBUMS
a note from Cody…
As a child, I grew up frequently looking at my parents wedding albums. Of course, it was the 90’s and all the albums back then had the plastic slip in pages and were basically ready to fall apart at any given moment. I had always enjoyed going through all of my parents albums, as they documented literally every life event and trip together.
When I was a teenager, my parents ended up divorcing. My mother went on to meet someone who had also taken on a father like figure to me in a lot of ways. After seven years of being together, they got married. I specifically remembered going through their wedding album after they returned from their elopement and it was the first time I had seen my now stepfather cry. I had actually always known him to be quite stoic. Unfortunately, he ended up passing away seven months later. A year to the exact date of my stepfather’s passing, just shortly after I started our business, my real father also passed away.
A year or so later, as we were beginning to incorporate albums into our couple’s experience, I had called my mother to ask for hers and my dad’s wedding album. Unfortunately, my dad had burned the very wedding album I grew up looking at shortly after their divorce. As devastated as I was, it also made us realize how important it was to preserve these photos in a tangible way. Not only for ourselves, but for the generations that will inherit them. It was from that idea that we branded our albums as “Heirlooms” with the intention that their value and use extended beyond our own lifetimes.
