As you look through all your photos and other memorabilia, select those which you might want to include in your Life Story.

Our Life Organizing Kit will keep track of everything so all items are returned to their original place. Your thoughts, dates, locations, any visual elements, and any notes will be recorded in your custom note book by chapter.

Visual Elements: A picture is worth a thousand words!

Visual Elements are used to enhance your story. Here are some ideas to get you started:
  • Still photos
  • Newspaper clippings
  • Diplomas
  • Wedding Announcements
  • Plaques
  • Trophies
  • Medals
  • Yearbooks
  • Paintings
  • Drawings
  • Letters
  • Keepsakes
  • Souvenirs
  • Childhood toys
  • Family videos (any format)
  • Family Films (requires transfer to video*)
We will digitally scan or photograph every Visual Element in your home.* We know these items are precious and irreplaceable and strongly recommend they never leave your sight.

If you need a picture of something and don't have it, we may be able to find something in our library of over 750,000 pictures and graphics or in our video archives. We are very resourceful and can find just about anything.

* Film transfers require specialized equipment which we have in our edit suite. Film is the only element which must be taken to our edit suite.
