Creative Family Memories to share your families story
Crafting Your Family’s History
Creating professional family movies so you can keep and share family memories.
Everyone has a parent or a grandparent who always tells a certain story about when they were growing up, or when they got their first job, bought their first house, etc. You might get tired of hearing the story now, but when that family member is no longer around to tell it, you’ll wish you could hear them tell their story one more time.
Creative Family Memories is here to record those family stories now, so you and your family can enjoy them for generations to come.
Why Creative Family Memories?
We’re not your traditional family videography company, because we do more than just record a video of your loved one talking. We also take your family photos and videos and incorporate them into the video of your family member telling their story, so their story comes to life as they’re telling it. This way it goes from being just a story you heard to an experience that makes you feel like you lived the story with them.
Even if you’ve all heard the same story a hundred times, everyone remembers it a little differently.
Rather than telling the story to the next generation second- and third-hand, they can hear the story told directly from the family member who lived it, even long after they’re gone. The addition of the photos and videos transform the experience from a home movie into a Family Legacy.
Whether your family photos and videos exist in polaroid form, VHS, or on your iPhone, we can digitize and organize all your family memories into a story that becomes part of your Family Legacy.
Depending on your needs, we can work with just the family photos and videos you already have, or we can record video of you or a loved one sharing your favorite family stories and incorporate your photos into the video. You can find out more about our different services here.
Document your Grandparents stories and acompany them with their photos and videos
Family photo albums are great, but who has time to sort through boxes of Polaroids and VHS tapes, not to mention hard drives full of digital photos and videos? Trying to organize them all into something resembling chronological order (much less a comprehensive story) can be a daunting task.
Why don’t you hand that task off to a professional who can digitize and organize all your family
memories so you can share them with family members now, and for generations to come?
At Creative Family Memories, we offer 3 different levels of services to help you craft your family’s history.

This is your chance to tell your favorite family story (or have your loved one tell their favorite family story) and have it filmed by a professional family videographer to share for generations.
When you select this package, a professional film crew comes to your home or the home of your loved one to interview them and film up to 1 hour of interview footage. Up to 3 people can be included in the filmed interview.
We then take the interview footage, as well as any relevant family photos and videos you gave us to digitize and/or organize, and incorporate them into the interview footage, so you don’t just have an interview when we’re done … you have a 30-minute story that comes to life.
Starting at $5000.
Family Legacy Movie
Creative Family Legacy Movie with in-person interviews and up to 500 accompanying photos/videos. up to 90 min final video
If you want to tell your whole family story, you need the Deluxe Package so our film crew can spend multiple days filming in-person interviews of you and/or your family members.
If you want to have a recording of your loved one to treasure after they’re gone, but you’re not sure what to ask them and they don’t know what to say in front of a camera, we can provide question prompts to get the conversation going.
We will also digitize and organize your family photos (up to 500) and videos and incorporate them into the interview footage to memorialize your Family Legacy in a way that makes it come to life. The entire project, from start to finish, takes about 4-6 months.
Starting at $20,000
