Preserving your visual legacy

Life is busy. If arranging your photos and preserving your stories has been on your to-do list, there is no times like the present to make it happen. Memories like photos fade away & time is fleeting: photo albums which weren't archival can damage images. And memorabilia, slides and images incorrectly stored can become a real mess to salvage.

My Beautiful Life Story preserves photo collections and provides advice about your collection. Based in Oregon, I am a professional photo organizer who provides services in the Willamette and Mid-Willamette Valley: my services include Photo Reproduction in Portland, Photo Digitization in Salem and Photo Reproduction in Salem Oregon. I am willing to travel worldwide to preserve personal history and photo legacies.

Together we'll catalog your photos to make them easy to find. I will help you by assigning them keywords and create a digital filing system that is easy to understand and navigate.

Together, we'll look at your photo albums, filing systems and budget, then decide what you'd like to accomplish.

Are your photos really protected?

Is your photo and slide storage protecting or destroying treasured family photos? Heat and humidity, 'magnetic' photo pages,  clingy pages, etc are just some of the culprits that may be harming your collection. Let's talk about how you are currently storing your collection.

Your story your way

A consultation is the first step in making your ideas a reality. We'll review the scope of your project and select the services right for you.

Then the fun begins: after organizing your photos and slides, we'll scan your images for your decided project.

Want to include your family in the fun? Legacy parties are a fantastic way to share joy and stories as we created your visual biography and legacy.

Ideas include photo biography, recorded stories included, beautiful photo books, personal history websites, invitations for special celebrations, video montage of image, memorabilia & objects...the possibilities are endless.  Just like the Speer family legacy!

Homer 'thought' his ideas were possible. We affirmed indeed they were possible, and a whole lot more!
