Gonnie's Story

Quote page from Gonnie's story book talking about the magic of holding a baby.

Gonnie’s family came to us because they were looking for a gift for someone who has everything. They purchased a story book for Gonnie because she is an amazing storyteller and they wanted her to write her memoirs. 

It was so fun working with Gonnie to create a timeline of her life and record her memories. We learned that Gonnie has seen a lot in her life so far. She grew up in the Netherlands at the start of WWII and had to go to Belgium for safety. She eventually came to Canada, met her husband, started a family, and grew her career. 

We learned from her about tenacity, strength, having a zest for life, and so much more. 

She shared amazing stories and great advice. Combined with her beautiful photos, we just love the way her photo story book turned out! 

We hope that she and her family love her book and that it's a treasure for future generations!
