Throughout history, storytelling has been key in sharing memories, information, and preserving legacies from one generation to the next. Some styles of storytelling include letters, pictures, videos, articles, interviews, and audio recordings. Although the methods of storytelling have changed over the years, the heart of storytelling has remained the same: people want to be remembered and share their experiences with others
Every family has a story worth sharing. Capturing a family legacy lets everyone connect deeply as they gather to discuss favorite memories and combined history. Once the story is captured, Picture This Organized can help you share it through a family history album or tribute video. Family interviews allow us to get to know your family better so we can help retell important stories from the perspective of the people who lived them. They also provide a space for meaningful conversation amongst family members about their lives and memories that they want to pass on. The result is one of the greatest gifts you can experience with those you love and generations to come.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have these memories gathered and organized in a way that honors and preserves your business’ history and legacy?

Mothers do so much for us, from carrying us during our first moments of life and raising us to feel loved every day. Which is all the more reason Mother’s Day is extra special. It’s a day we give back to our mothers and let them know how much we appreciate everything they’ve done for us.
A great way to honor your mother is with a video tribute or photo album revisiting all of her most remarkable life experiences. Unlike flowers or chocolate, photo albums last a lifetime!

The month of February celebrates love, and we believe the best way to share the love is by preserving sentimental old photos that have been aging for years in a Heritage Album.

They are old family treasures that take our family back in time to the 1920s through the 50s, but, unfortunately, the large scrapbook format wasn’t designed to last forever. No need to panic; we got this.
