Family history is an essential aspect of our personal identities and heritage. As we grow older, we start to realize the importance of knowing our family’s history and the stories and experiences that have shaped our lives. 

Grandchildren and children may not think to ask questions now, but there will come a time when they want to know the answers.

Having a Legacy Film made is insurance for a loved one’s story. But when is the right time to do it?

The answer to this question may vary depending on individual circumstances, but generally speaking, there are a few key moments when it’s an excellent time to consider exploring having a legacy film made.

Special Occasions

An excellent time to have a legacy film made is before special occasions such as family reunions or wedding anniversaries. These events often bring together family members who may not see each other regularly, and they can provide an opportunity to reminisce about the past and share in the compelling experience of watching a Legacy Film together.

When There’s a Significant Change in the Family

Significant changes in the family can also be an excellent time to capture family history on video. These changes can include moving to a new home, retiring, or welcoming a new grandchild into the family. These moments often mark significant transitions in our lives and can be a natural time to reflect on our family’s past and look to the future.

When You’re Ready
