a message from our founder

Memories are one of life's greatest treasures.  They are photographs we take with our mind.  Like memories, photographs bring time, place, people and emotion together.  They captivate those who value a glimpse into another world, and give meaning to things sometimes overlooked or taken for granted.

This book is a collection of the work of inspired photographers, both aspiring young photographers and sessions practitioners.  Each photograph represents a special memory, which they are generously sharing with you to sport Firefly's question to keep memory alive.

All proceeds from this book go toward an important Firefly initiative, Bright Lights in the Lab, which you can read more about in this book.  This initiative supports ambitious young students who aim to explore the wonders of the brain, and discover new ways to preserve the power of memory in generations to come.

On behalf of Firefly and the talented photographers who have shared their work and their memories, we invite you to appreciate these memories and create enduring memories of your own.

Stay bright,

Heather McKenzie Anspach Fraser, Founder
