For many people telling their personal story can be an emotional experience. At Visual Life Stories, we give our full attention to the storyteller creating a respectful environment for them to share their story without interruption.
We seek out details from the storyteller by asking questions that encourage reflection. Looking at photographs can spark a story thread. Though Leah’s story doesn’t include photos, we can easily incorporate them.
Collecting memories involves paying attention to the details and a key detail is making sure the person telling the story feels safe and comfortable. If they are, then they will be motivated to share their personal story. And soon we are on our way to creating a legacy for now and future generations.
As loved ones age, their stories can fade and with their passing, the stories may be lost. We can work with you to gather those stories and collect the memories in a variety of ways.
Audio and video recordings combine brilliantly with our visual stories. Links to the audio/video files can be embedded into the digital version of the visual story. Incorporating these methods combines the best of all mediums.
