Celebrate Parenthood with Pearhead

Celebrate Parenthood with Pearhead

By Jak Burke,

What’s in a photograph? Just about everything.

Photographs transport us back in time.  They are precious reminders of how far we have come. They also chronicle a parent’s journey and a child’s milestones. Our pictures are so important we will want to capture the best from a moment and with the finesse of a professional studio. But how?

If there is a magic to creating keepsakes – Pearhead gets it. Their range of chalkboards give parents an opportunity to customize an experience like the trimesters of pregnancy and stuff like weird cravings or the size of a developing fetus.


Once our baby has arrived it might be months before we regroup from sleepless nights and breast-feeding but eventually we do, and those cute skills that our infant is mastering can be commemorated in a unique way. A Pearhead chalkboard is your opportunity to stop time and how often do we get to stop the clock?


According to scientific research our brains are hard-wired to constantly seek patterns, because patterns represent stability, but life isn’t a sequential experience. As any parent will tell you – living with a toddler often feels chaotic.

Stopping the clock through poignant portraits gives us the power to orchestrate random memories. It’s the magical making of sequential patterns with a reward experienced much later on when our kids have grown and left home.

Looking back … we will have a photographic journey that celebrates our path through parenthood.


Her first class: a huge milestone. Something to celebrate and brag about. Social media offers families spread over the country a platform to share moments like these. Pearhead’s chalkboards complete those moments.


What about our own parents? Don’t they have bragging rights too? You bet! Pearhead’s chalkboards can be used as a prop to announce the coming of grandchildren. In one image and with one chalkboard a life-changing announcement can be perfectly made.


Sssshhhh … “Do not disturb” just took a new twist.  New parents understand the value of a sleeping baby. Finally comes the opportunity to sit down, to watch TV, to take a shower or have a power nap. So keeping noise to a minimum can not only be pragmatic but also aesthetic. This sign is great for when our relatives are staying with us or if we have contractors in our home.
