Having a love of Family history, genealogy and being the family historians brought us to this business. We have a love of photography and many years of experience capturing a large extended family in photos. We have become the “go to” people for creating family memory movies for milestone events, creating video collages with music, slideshows for weddings, funerals, anniversaries and vacation photobooks, birthdays, retirements. We share a passion for what our photos and saved documents tell us about our ancestors and ourselves. We want to preserve that information for future generations. Having painstakingly gone through the organization process of our own 75,000 digital photos, 50,000 printed photos and several handed down family photo albums we know the overwhelming task and responsibility that having all these memories entails. Not to mention the time commitment involved.
Photographs, Photo Albums and documents are the insight into our lives and tell the story of who we are. They are as unique and special as the people they include. They deserve to be protected and preserved in the latest technical format. You will regain your storage space by allowing you to dispose of bulking storage boxes, filled filing cabinets, have the ability to find that special photo or document you are looking for more easily. This service is perfect for those wishing to get organized, downsize, transfer their cherished stories to future generations.

A lifetime of memories is held in our photos. It’s never too late to get your memories organized.
If you’ve landed on this page, chances are you are wanting to organize and preserve your printed photo collections.
In today’s world, photos are everywhere! And it’s not just our photos that are on old hard drives, stashed in beat-up shoeboxes and hidden in random school photo albums, it’s even our parent’s photos that are disorganized and haven’t seen the light of day in decades!
Our photos connect us to our past, show where we’ve traveled on our life journey and leave a legacy for our children. They are often considered amongst our most precious belongings yet they are frequently forgotten and left unorganized and unprotected as a “someday” project.
If your photos are a valuable piece of your life, we want to support you in creating an organized, preserved collection. Whether you have boxes of printed photos buried in a closet or old photos in albums you’d like to scan and share with your family, we offer services to support you.

What Client’s Say
I had Digital4Keeps scan over 100 photos to be used in a funeral slideshow. Some of the photos were very old and fragile. They came out in the slideshow looking better than the actual photo, cropped and sized to fit into the slide show and organized to show a portrait of the life of a very special man in our family.
Let me say something. You have an amazing theme and amazing/awesome support. They helped me on weekend. This is what I call an “extra mile” in customer relationship. So I gave 5 stars for the theme and if I could, I’d give 10 stars for support.
