Life Legacy works with you to craft your memoir. You share. We write, craft, and produce.
Through one-on-one interviews we uncover the stories, family history, values and life lessons that our clients wish to pass along.
A custom memoir of remembrances and family memories serves as a personal legacy, one that can be treasured for generations to come.
We interview our client to gather the important information for their memoir, add pictures from their past and present, and organize all of that into a meaningful, interesting, insightful, and readable album.
Of course, our client gets the final edit!
We provide the client with questions before each session so they can select what areas are of interest to them for us to pursue. This provides structure for each session.
We work with the client to obtain digital images/photographs of important people, places, and things. These pictures are used to add visual detail and enhanced meaning to the memoir.
Hear from one of our clients:
As a parent of four children and grandparent of five, I had been wanting to leave behind some record of my life, my joy in my family and friends, and my hopes for the future. Life Legacy has provided the perfect vehicle.
Liz with Life Legacy helped me tell my story in a way that reflected me. She asked insightful questions, never pried, and really listened to my ideas. She helped me organize and make sense out of a myriad of facts and ideas. I felt I could trust her with my memories.
The experience was enjoyable, the cost fair, and the final product elegant and beyond my expectation. I hope five years from now to continue to recollect more of my stories and views on living to present to my family with Liz's help and encouragement.
We typically produce two multimedia deliverables for each client, but the choice is yours:
A memoir - a high quality coffee-table book. The handcrafted memoir is composed of stories, thoughts, and anecdotes gathered from personal interviews with the client, interspersed with pictures of important people, places and things.
A short video - approximately 10 minutes in length. The video shows the client speaking to their loved ones, a recording with meaning that allows future generations to know and remember how the client looks and sounds.
