We are on a mission to help the world capture life’s precious moments…and this is how it all began.
You know all the sayings about time and how it flies, and how kids grow up so fast. They are total clichés, but they are also so very true.
The value of time as a precious and limited commodity only became meaningful to Jeff and I when these new little beings entered our lives. Their growth week by week, month by month, year by year, was such an obvious yardstick for the passage of time and there was no slowing it down.
We had a jewelry store and studio in the quaint, small town where we still reside. After our first son was born, I was on maternity leave from teaching, but Jeff was always at the shop. The baby and I spent a lot of time there, but still, Jeff was missing so much. Mostly, it was simple everyday moments that he missed. The ones that at the time don’t seem special, but looking back are what makes your whole life remarkable.
So, to try to capture those moments, Jeff made a fingerprint charm of our wee son’s finger. He gave it to me for Mother’s Day and people in town loved it and wanted their own. Dimples was born.
Our life is focused on the tiny things in life, our 3 small children and the fun and the frustrating day-to-day aspects of raising them and running a business all from a small, rural town.
Because of this, we have a reverence for the small moments in life that become significant. Sometimes the well planned and organized special occasions are the most special: the weddings, family photo shoots, reunions. But most often it is the spontaneous moments…after the photographer leaves and your boys while monkey-ing around fall face first into a mud puddle and emerge laughing and filthy (true story)…that are the most memorable. Who hasn’t experienced a family trip that goes so disastrously, but that 10 years later you laugh yourself to tears when recalling it. Those moments, fun & hilarious, embarrassing & horrible, heartwarming & heartbreaking, even downright devastating…those are the remarkable moments. Those are the memories you cherish.
Life is remarkable. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Let these moments leave their mark on your life. And we’ll be here to help you capture them forever in Dimples!
Wondering about the name? Well, often you only see Dimples when someone smiles. And that’s what our Dimples aim to do, make you smile as you remember life’s remarkable people and moments.
