Momentos is thrilled to have Stephanie as a new member of the team, helping us to record the life stories of those we love.
Stephanie Rehkopf is a photographer, a textile artist and a personal historian. She is the creator of The Great Coat Remembrance Day Project, a community project where people can stitch the name of a veteran they would like to remember.
Being the oldest of five children meant she spent time with her great grandmother, great uncle and her grandparents. Listening to their stories and looking at old photographs felt like a gift. A gift she continues to share with her siblings and her own children.
Becoming a personal historian and helping others record their stories to share with future generations felt like a natural thing for her to do.
