Why video memoirs?

Imagine being able to watch someone you love sharing their story and true essence on camera in their own words.  What a priceless gift for future generations to share.

Facial expressions and mannerisms add so much to what you share with others – and bring the story to life.  There’s no better way to capture the emotion of a story and personality of the storyteller than with video.

If you want to know more about saving your family stories, and saving the spirit and personality of the storyteller at the same time, please get in touch. It would be a privilege to help you and your family save your memories forever in a video memoir.

What my clients say

The Moving Memories story

Life Stories

Moving Memories is dedicated to the memory of my dear Dad, Tony Parker.

After losing Dad at just 78 years young in 2018, I decided that I wanted to help families preserve their family stories on video.  Too many stories get lost when our family members pass away, and by sharing stories on video it keeps them alive – plus families get to see and hear the stories directly from the storyteller.  They get to experience their true essence and personality.

This is why I am so passionate about Moving Memories.  I want everyone to have the opportunity to save favourite stories and precious memories of loved ones in their own voice – to create a video memoir for future generations to enjoy. 

I feel privileged to be involved in capturing these stories and know that my Dad is on my shoulder proudly encouraging me to help other families record their video memoirs to treasure forever.
