Photo Collages celebrate life's most precious moments so let me tell your story one initial at a time.

I am honored you looked at my shop and you were intrigued enough to come to my about me page.

My name is Heather Brady, I am married and have 5 gorgeous children. 3 boys and 2 girls. My husband and I met when we were 12 and have been together ever since. We grew up together and now we are growing old together.

I got started decoupaging when I was a very small child, anything to do with cutting paper or magazines and glue would usually turn into a Christmas present for family and friends.

I have over 15 years experience managing the biggest retail chain, starting from the bottom and working my way up and it was during that time my husband was injured in the line of duty. My husband is now disabled and looking for a way to stay home and help take care of him and my children, I took a huge risk, I left my job and opened Initial Remembrance.

I took a risk because the demand for my custom photo collages were so great that I was told by so many of my customers that I should share my work with others through a broader platform like Etsy and Amazon Handmade.

Each piece is professionally done, with over 30 years experience you won't be disappointed with your purchase.

You inspire me every time I see your photos. Every time I work on your order, your personality is reflected on your project. I like to capture what is most important to you. Every photo you send has a story behind it; where you've been, who you were with and your mood at the time of the photo and I like to tell your story through those photos.

My business is located in a small farm town in Northeast Ohio and most my work is done at my kitchen table. Sometimes my kids help me with tedious tasks that are so vital to running a small business out of a home; like hand cutting photos and packaging. You can be assured that I am the only one who creates and designs your item.

Most my business is done through convo’s requesting custom orders and off of my Facebook page About 90% of my customers are return customers and I think that says a lot about my shop!

If you have any questions about the process, please do not hesitate to ask me a question - just send me a convo or email me at INITIALREMEMBRANCE [!at] GMAIL.COM
