Navigating Photo Organization

From Keepsake Albums to Digital Legacies

Sweet Words From Clients

Melody has given me the venue (website) access, training and the ability to update my story and those of my loved ones. FOREVER has given me the opportunity to memorialize my life. Melody is extremely responsive to my queries and spends time with me to ensure that I understand and am able to complete my projects successfully. I highly recommend Melody and FOREVER to store your memories and continue your legacy. .

Rosie L

Both my daughter and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Melody and creating the finest and most beautiful photo albums, family heritage albums and collages. Our entire experience has been so rewarding and fun. During the last 20 years, I have had the opportunity to meet and make friends with many of Melody’s other clients. It has always been a very rich and rewarding experience and I look forward to being associated with Safeguard Your Memories for many years to come. I also would highly recommend Melody for those who are interested in treasuring their family photos and memorabilia. .

Sandra O

Instead of having our content scattered, we now have a central repository for all of our family’s precious memories from my childhood 8mm silent movies, thought the up-to-minute photos of daily life we have all come to enjoy. In addition, Forever provides you with a personal guru who has helped us through every step which is invaluable since we sometimes qualify as technically illiterate. I know of no other company who offers the level of support. Granted, it is work to organize all of your photos, and it is a small investment, but it is gratifying! Once you have your stash uploaded, you will enjoy sharing, creating albums, Holiday cards, etc. And Forever’s promise is that our memories will always be there for generations to enjoy, no matter how the technology evolves. Kind of mind blowing. .

Anne-Marie K

Attending Melody's Educational Experience Retreat in 2023 was such a great time and really a treat! She's so patient and explains how to do things so easily I wondered why I couldn't figure it out myself. I learned a ton. We had so much fun, and I was able to accomplish so much. Meeting the other ladies and learning from them was also a bonus. Melody's husband, Gerald, was a wonderful co-host and grill chef! They have a beautiful home with an outstanding view which really fuels the creative vibe! I highly recommend attending one of Melody's Retreats, you will be thrilled! .

Shawnene P

If you’re looking to organize your memories, safeguard them and/or learn how to put them into beautiful albums, Melody will guide you. Whatever your goal, Melody will meet you where you are and assist you in accomplishing it. Having known and worked with her for more than 20 years, I can say Melody is a kind and compassionate person, leader, and motivator. .

Liz S

The idea definitely intrigued me, but it took several months before I pulled the trigger to get started. Melody would give me a call every now and then to see if I had any questions or wanted to give it a go. She was never pushy, just a friendly voice of encouragement. I finally said I was ready to give it a try in 2023 and she was right there, a phone call away, if I had any questions, which I did. I am now getting ready to fill my 3rd FOREVER Box of photos for digitization. It has been such fun to go through the photos and know that I finally found a way to digitize them and save them forever! I am still learning so much, and Melody is just a phone call away! She is my biggest cheer leader and so helpful! I am so glad I was introduced to her! .

Karen M

I now have all of our precious memories safely in my FOREVER Permanent Storage account. I also have all of my parents' family photos and videos that were in formats from super 8 to digital cd's digitized and now stored safely in virtual albums that are shared with siblings and children. In my business, I keep all of our images used in all of our advertising and media, as well as sharing with clients. Having everything organized in one place makes it so much fun to look at the evolution of the company. Melody's experience and knowledge of the many different options to optimize your photo use and storage is invaluable. So much so, that I am looking forward to becoming a photo coach myself in the near future to help others. .
