Family traditions are ideas and activities handed down over many years and lifetimes. They are important reminders of where we came from and give us a sense of belonging. During the holidays, our choices of food, gifts, music, and decoration communicate our spiritual beliefs and family history. They reflect what we loved most about our upbringing and provide the opportunity to share and honor treasured relationships with future generations. Today, it’s easy to keep traditions alive by creating shareable Family Tradition slideshows and albums.
Technology has changed the way we manage photos and retain the history behind them. Every generation has a different approach to preserving pictures, video, and memorabilia. How they use different media and save it relates directly to the technology they grew up with.
Honor your Dad this Father’s Day with a gift he won’t forget: A video collection filled with memories of your best moments together. Clients with young families typically record 150 videos per month! That’s a treasure trove of meaningful memories to share with family and friends by creating collections according to themes or events.
Moms themselves are often the ones capturing life’s precious moments through photos and video. They treasure every image. Adding audio recordings also adds verbal expressions, accents, tone, and emotion to the memory. Families enjoy the sounds of laughter or even sadness to relive unique feelings.
Organizing your photos in a few simple steps

Deciding what to keep, sell, or donate
At different times in life, we find ourselves reorganizing our living space or downsizing. You may be an empty nester or a senior moving to a smaller home. Memories are attached to everything from furniture to linens, and decisions need to be made, but you don’t have to make them alone. The sooner you start, the easier it will be to make your move.
Over the years, individual school or class photos, professional family portraits, and other memorable pictures can accumulate. And what about artwork the kids did at school, professional pieces you bought, and gifts you received? You don’t want to let go of anything, but how do you organize and preserve it?
