It began when one of our team members lost her grandmother, who lived a full and vibrant 93 years. Genesis and her family were looking for a way to honor her grandmother's life and share all of the special memories they had with her. They had boxes of photos, letters, souvenirs from trips, and stories, but they had no idea how to preserve them. With a family reunion coming up, they needed to find a solution.
Genesis knew that we had the resources to turn her stacks of memories into something special — but what, exactly? We began to brainstorm different ways that we could showcase her grandmother's beloved treasures and tell her story. As we brought in multiple team members and got to work, we began to create the ultimate memory book to commemorate her grandmother, integrating photos and artifacts with stories. We printed multiple copies of the book for Genesis to give as gifts to different relatives.
We also created a video montage for Genesis to share at her family reunion, and that's when we realized that we could reach family members who weren't able to attend. We included the video and all of her edited photos in a digital library, so that Genesis could share her grandmother's story with every member of her family, no matter where they were. It was tons of work, but the results were breathtaking and emotional. We knew we had to bring this to other people.
