About Still Life Stories
Be it a painting, perfume bottle, blanket or bundle of letters, the objects we keep, care for, and eventually pass along, reflect who we are – our memories and experiences, history and values.
Through artful photography and expert interviews,
Still Life Stories captures and documents your stories by creating custom archival albums, prints and works of art that serve as an enduring legacy.
The Process is Simple
We meet in your home or at our studio, and guide you through a casual conversation about your objects of meaning (we'll even help you choose them) and the stories they tell. We record, take photographs and listen closely.
Voila! Your personal piece of art has been created to be relished for generations.
