Store Photos and Videos of Your Aging Parents and Adult Children Safely and Permanently

In a half hour, I’ll show you how to easily and safely store a lifetime of memories that you’ve collected from your parents and your children. But first, read why I’d like to do it.

I’ve been a photo coach for 30 years and I know why our memories are so important in situations like this:

You kiss your aging parent goodbye as you leave the retirement center … and you kiss your adult children goodbye when they leave your home to travel back to their place.

But guess what?

Their stuff is still in your place, right?

Do you ever feel your home is like a storage center? You know, receiving knick-knacks and family memories from your aging parents while your adult children leave their things, vowing to come get them soon?

You’re straddling the generations. But you’re also straddling different eras of technology.

If you’ve been cleaning out your parents’ belongings then you’ve come across some awesome treasures.

You know, family photos, home movies, slide shows, letters, and VHS tapes. Those traditional scrapbook albums are so fun to leaf through and see when you played your first ball games or had your piano recital where your clothes felt extra stiff and tight.

The question is, how do you protect them? And guess what?

Your digital memories are piling up, too, on your phone and other electronic devices. How do you know what photos and videos you should store and which ones you can safely delete?

Here’s good news …

you can preserve and permanently store the hard copy memories in the same space as your digital memories.

Yep, bring the generations together into one safe, secure space. Permanently. Guaranteed.

I researched and found using FOREVER®, the most complete memory-keeping system on the market is how.

I’d like you to see how comprehensive FOREVER® is with a personal online tour. Just scroll down to contact me via email.





Why use FOREVER®?

It’s permanent storage that you can own and it’s designed to last for a lifetime, plus 100 years. Guaranteed.

The entire business model is built around the name so they’re not like other companies where you pay a monthly fee that’s renting space or the site is free and you can get locked out of your account.

In those cases, you have little control and your information can be, and is, used for marketing purposes.

What does FOREVER® look like?

You’ll see this in action on the tour.

You’ve got a main space called a Library where you store all your files. Then you organize them into Albums and Nested Albums. Tags are easy-to-use identifiers. You can share with family and friends privately, too.


What can you do with FOREVER®?

Digitize all your older files like printed photos, home movies, slide shows, and documents you want to keep. FOREVER® digitizes all files at its facility in Green Bay, Wisconsin so your files stay in the U.S. and the customer care is outstanding.

Upload the files from your phone and all your other electronic devices into the same space.

Now, you’ve got your memories stored in one safe digital place.

FOREVER® offers versatility.

Once your photos, videos, and other files are digitally stored then you can turn them into attractive photo books and other gifts like wall art.

FOREVER® offers professional genealogists who will consult with you and help you get started in digging into your family history.


Tour FOREVER® with Me

My photo coaching career started when I was a young mother in the mid-90s and I thought it was so great to help families preserve their stories using photos and journaling notes about the photos.

The digital era has made safe permanent storage possible if it’s designed properly. FOREVER® has done that with a guarantee that your photos can be stored for a lifetime, plus 100 years and beyond as file formats change.

Get to know FOREVER® on a virtual tour with me for about 20 minutes to a half hour.
