Capture, Preserve and Share Your Memories!

Memories are important.IMG_0010

Memories are special.

Memories heal.

Memories encourage.

Memories are what keep families together.

 

We all have memories. Some people tell me they don’t. But that’s not true. Those memories may not be in the forefront of their mind but they are there. How can you retrieve them? A simple way is through photos. Once you pull out those photos and begin browsing through, those memories will come alive.

 

But then you may ask what do I do with those memories? Tell the story!!!!

 

We all have stories and they are fun and family members do want to hear them. Some may say no but give them time.   Capture those memories and put them in a book or slide show and those family members will be captivated.

 

What are some themes you could focus on to tell those stories? Well here is a start … and I say start because the stories can be endless.

 

But perhaps this will help you to get those memory cells activated.

  1. I’ve been looking at a lot of old photos lately, as one of my cousins is putting together a family history book. It’s wonderful that you can do this for people, because it can be very time-consuming, but oh so priceless to have!

    • Janet it is one of my favorite services to offer. I find so much pleasure in helping people preserve their memories. I’ve even done many as gifts.

  2. I think photos are one of the important keepsakes in a home. I agree that preserving and sharing memories should be a high priority. Creating and sharing photo books and slideshows is a wonderful idea.

    • Yes, this is a strong passion of mine. I’ve been preserving my family’s memories for the past 21 years and love it. It doesn’t have to be elaborate or complicated. I just needs to be recorded and written about.

    • Absolutely Olive. Unless your photos are categorized and marked with the date, having to recreate the chronological order of events could be hard. Best then to go by themes.
