Everyone Has A Family Story To Share
Life Story photo books make wonderful keepsakes that a whole family can treasure forever...
Stripping life back to its most basic level, the things we have mean very little. The lasting, meaningful, emotional thoughts and feelings are the things that make us who we are. Our deep and enduring connections -- and the life we have -- with our families are what mean the most to us. These are our Family Life Stories, that we cherish, and record with journals, photographs and videos.
There are special memories from ordinary days and from the big occasions: Anniversaries, Babies, Birthdays, Graduations, Engagements and Weddings etc... and celebrating the lives of loved ones who are no-longer with us. There are family traditions & folklore passed down through the generations; and memories of everyday life experiences: different places lived, holidays taken, schools attended, jobs done and the fun things - hobbies, activities etc.... & Don't Forget Your Pets!!
It used to be that family stories, passed down from grandparents by word of mouth, were often lost within a generation. Today, the Digital Era provides us with amazing capabilities to capture and record everyday moments and events.
Passing on stories and images from the past is an important step toward preserving our family history...
Life Story presentations provide snapshots that showcase our lives. By telling Family's Stories in stunning presentations, with special images that capture special moments, and beautiful words that express the truly memorable and unique aspects of our lives we are creating family heirlooms that we can enjoy and share with our family today and pass down to future generations tomorrow.
"A Picture Paints A Thousand Words BUT Written Words Tell The Story!"
A Life Story Presentation can represent any part of our lives, from a whole family story spanning generations, to a specific time in the life of one member of the family. It can include information as diverse as a whole family history to a small amusing incident, the thought of which still makes the reader laugh. Ranging from a single photo book telling a whole family story spanning generations to a comprehensive family history collection, it can include separate photo books, slideshows and videos.
Life Story Photo books are especially meaningful to older members of the family....
As memories fade and there is more to look back on than look forward to, a Life Story Photobooks can be a especially meaningful gift to give older members of the family to help reminisce about their lives.
We have albums and cassettes full of our children's childhood Life Stories...
We are the keepers of our children's' childhoods. Despite all our new gadgets & distractions, reading books with our young children seems to have withstood the test of time. As they start their own families, what better storybook can we give our adult children than one about their own childhoods... for them to to share with our grandchildren?
Slideshow and video presentations are also great for showcasing our Family Life Stories and recording special events in our lives...
IF YOU REMEMBER!!! We wasted a lot of footage, training our camcorders on one of the kids for many minutes trying to capture a cute moment. Editing our digitized old movie films and camcorder videos is a great way to consolidate many hours of footage and gives us the best way to easily view and share our collection. The footage can be as simple as 1-2 minutes of highlights, or as involved as an edited down version of our entire video archive. By clipping out the best footage, we can combine it with images, audio and writing to tell a full family story. By adding effects such as custom transitions, text effects, captions, title slides, music and voice-overs we can make one-of-a-kind digital keepsakes
Slideshow and video presentations are also great for including in, or remembering, special events in our lives. FROM entertaining wedding guests at a rehearsal dinner with memories of the happy couple growing up, meeting and saying YES!! , to recapping the special day and sharing honeymoon highlights with friends and family when they get back. OR FOR anniversary and milestone birthday montages with family & friends providing photos, audio recording and short videos to congratulate the honored guest(s). They can be stored in the cloud, shared with multiple people and viewed on any display.
It is Never Too Early to Tell A Life Story
but You Can Leave it Too Late
"When we are young & our grandparents try to TELL
stories of their past, we roll our eyes & think SWELL!!
We're not interested, we really don't CARE,
To listen AGAIN to the stories they SHARE!!
Later when they have no memory, or have PASSED,
We wish we'd listenend & questions ASKED.
We regret not remembering and it's not written DOWN
Now they have no voice, or are no longer AROUND!!"
