About Me

Conceived of MemoriesbyDesign

Patricia Manuell

When I was 14 years old, I started a part time job in a local photo lab in Winnipeg. It was there where I discovered my love for photography; along with my family history in this art. My grandfather and father where photo hobbyist’s and looking at the photographs they had taken through the years was inspirational. I realized the power of a photograph and the memories they preserve.
As I grew into a young adult, my love for photography continued to grow, as well as my career with the photo lab. Now a manager, I decided to accept a transfer to Vancouver to not only expand my career, but explore the life and landscapes of the West Coast. Words can’t describe the views, feelings and experience I gained during this time in my life, but it wasn’t until I moved to Alberta and started a family of my own, that motivated me to start up Memories By Design. Looking at photographs of my children, took me back to when I found my father’s photo album and the memories that were preserved because of his photograph design, it was truly a special feeling.
I believe everyone should have the opportunity to look at a photograph and have it take you back to a special time in your life. Memories By Design was formed to help capsulate those memories with unique photographic designs that reflect your family, event or product’s originality. But more importantly, my goal is to create a fun and engaging experience where the special moments shared that day provide you with a memory that is cherished for years / generations to come.
