What sets PHG Memories apart from the rest? We want to offer you an affordable way to preserve your photos and videos. With our Graphic Design experience, we can customize the end product to be beautiful, yet simple for you to use. We can also fix photos that are scratched, ripped or faded.
My name is Jenn. I have been working in the Graphic Design industry for over 19 years. I received my degree in Electronic Publishing and while specializing in print design, I taught myself how to put together videos to preserve our family vacations and hiking trips.
In 2020, my son was getting ready to graduate from High School and I wanted to make something special for him. Every year when I purchased a yearbook for him, I could not believe the amount of money spent for only having an image or two of him inside. That’s when I decided to make him a “Life Yearbook,” an annual with pages for every single year of his life. To do this I needed photos from 2002 – 2020.
LOST IN THE FIRE
Sadly, back in 2008, while I was in the process of moving, all of his baby videos, scrapbooks and photos that were being stored at my sister’s house unfortunately were lost when her house burned to the ground. Thankfully, no one was hurt, but all of my son’s memories were lost.
The only thing that saved me was being able to go to sites like Shutterfly, Walgreens and Rite Aid where I had previously uploaded photos. They were my godsend, but what a mess it was trying to download them from so many different locations and then make sense out of them.
Through this painful process, I promised myself I would get more organized with our family photos and would never lose them again. After all, when you are faced with a natural disaster, next to your family, what’s the number one thing people grab before they are evacuated? Their family photos and treasures. These are the things that cannot be replaced or remade. I will never get back all the videos I took of my son as an infant; those have been lost forever. Now I have all of my memories organized and safely stored online, as well as on a backup drive and computer to keep them safe for the future.
Now our mission is helping others digitize and keep their memories safe in a place where they can be organized, secure and easily shared with friends and family members you choose. We’re so excited and passionate about this venture and look forward to helping you preserve and safe keep your memories as well.
