Photo of generations

The Ultimate Gift for Yourself, Your Loved Ones, and Generations to Come

LifeStories Alive specializes in making personal history videos for families that value their heritage. We create family heirlooms in video: digitally mastered records of life stories with personal accounts, photos and mementos of family history.

At LifeStories Alive, we go beyond faded, static photographs and capture the essence of a person complete with speech, mannerisms, and visuals. We celebrate personal journeys for the benefit of those who follow. With today’s digital DVD technology, and a little forethought, priceless generational links and personal anecdotes can be preserved for virtually eternity.
