Podcast – Photographs in a Shoebox

Welcome to photographs in a shoebox podcast with me – Sue Kennedy

This podcast will encourage you to cherish your own photographs knowing that they will be and can be enjoyed by the next generation, as well as now.

I will be inspiring you to preserve your memories and sharing ideas on how to do that, plus inviting guests to share their stories behind a treasured photograph.

I’ve been a family photographer for nearly 20 years, plus wife, daughter, and mother to a tween, so I’ve seen all angles of why photographs are important in our lives.

As a daughter discovering old family photographs and unable to find out who most of them are (I can only guess), to my own daughter enjoying her baby photos and other family photos I want to inspire you to take those everyday photos with the camera you always have with you (your phone), and preserve what you have.

It’s about happy memories, your legacy, and as a bonus studies have shown having photos of your family around the house boosts your children’s self-esteem – so keep updating!
