our story

What does "MFD" stand for? The question everyone asks and the story I love to share. My husband, David, was in the military for almost ten years. During his first of three combat deployments I had a file on my desktop of photos, letters, memories and moments that I eventually needed to send him, tell him about or print to include in his next care package. That file on my desktop was named "Memories for Dave". When I started this journey David was a huge part of it. He bought me first DSLR camera & was my "why" when I started taking pictures. Little did I know at the time It would turn into a business and passion when I started a facebook page named "Memories for Dave". When I became a legal business I wanted to keep part of our story and decided to abbreviate it to "MFD"... and that's our story! The photos to the right are part of that time in our life. Letters and Homecomings!

"Welcome to our story, I can't wait to be part of yours!"
