About Our Process

Step 1:

The Interview

Tell us who we are celebrating and why! We will book interview time at your convenience, and can conduct sessions in person, via computer, or over the phone. Interview sessions are approximately two hours long. We ask the questions that uncover stories from you or your loved one’s past, perhaps never discussed or documented.

 

Our interviews have been called therapeutic, enlightening, and a lot of fun. This is the heart of our process.

Step 2:

Story Creation

Each story is curated thoughtfully from recorded interviews. No templates here! 

Stories are generally written in the third person with plenty of direct quotes from your loved one so their voice comes out crystal clear. 

Step 3:

Story Review

Time for a sneak peek! Draft stories are sent back to you for review. Additions and edits are welcome and expected because this is YOUR story.

Step 4:

Photo retouching and layout

Hard copy photos are scanned and retouched. Digital photos are organized and labeled. Photo scanning and restoration is included in all our packages. We will return hard copy photos back to you at the end of the project.

Time to incorporate pictures into the narrative to make your stories come to life! We have plenty of room at the back of each book for additional photos and captions. 

Step 5:

A Final Sneak Peek

Review the digital proof, adjust any photos as needed, and confirm your album style. This is the final check before we go to print. We're almost there!

Step 6:

Delivery Date

Books are mailed or hand delivered with care. Premium albums come delivered in a gift box.

This is when your loved one will see your surprise dedication, the perfect way to kick off this book. Grab some tissues because you might just shed some tears and laughs. Kids and grandkids will love revisiting this for years to come.

All packages come with a digital flipbook to share this story with friends and family near and far.

"I purchased this for my Dad for Christmas and it's the most meaningful gift I could've ever gotten him! It was a fun process to see my dad's interview and then see it translated into words and a book. This is something that my entire family will treasure. A truly amazing idea and company!"
