what is memory keeping

Memory keeping is any thing you do to document your current or past memories for you or someone else to review and reflect on later. This can be in the form of images, journaling, video, or anything else that evokes the recall of moments in our life. We live in a time when memory keeping is easier than ever. We can share the stories of our lives in ways previous generations never could. Social media, video creation, scrapbooking, journaling—these are all forms of memory keeping. Since most of us carry around these amazing devices in our pockets called smart phones we can capture stories and mini moments in an instant.

The more we grow, the more we begin to realize that our own memory is not reliable. As you encounter millions of meaningful stories in your lifetime you start noticing that not everything stays behind for you to remember, but every moment is important and deserves a time to shine. Our stories matters, so I focus on capturing all moments big and small, significant and seemingly not, because these are the moments that make up our life’s story.

Project: Family Yearbook

This is a scrapbooking (or in my case, smashbooking) project in which I document the events of a year so that I can view these memories like a yearbook of my family. It’s a special project of mine that I would love to share with all of you!

It starts with journaling

Journaling is the most simple and easiest form of memory keeping. It’s a great way to start documenting your story, and it’s a method I still use on a regular basis to jot down important bits that I want to be sure to fully embellish on later.

Video creation

Video is one of the best current formats for keeping memories. Video can do what no other platform can—capture movement, audio, and visuals that literally take you back to the time in which the story was originally being told through that moment.

 And if you'd rather not tackle your memories alone, then let's work together.

I share tips, tricks, and good behaviors on my blog all about how you can memory keep even when you feel too overwhelmed to do so. Memory keeping is about storing precious memories, and this is something we must do as the historians of our own lives. However, if you feel like you just can’t get everything done that needs to be done, then don’t fret.

If you’re too busy making memories to document them, you’re in the right place. I help my clients transform their memories into beautiful, modern, heirloom-quality projects they can share and enjoy for years to come.

I work one-on-one with private clients to organize, edit, and transform their captured memories into a beautiful photo book or video that documents everything that they need.
